It was those little canisters of CO2 like for the CO2 guns.

And then there's an attachment for the valve stem.
Here's the whole setup:

My bike actually came with one of those attachments but I wasn't sure what it was for. How many PSI did one of those small canisters get you?

Not quite enough because it was FLAT. Felt it wiggle once and was like hmmm maybe it was just the road... felt it wiggle again and was like DANG IT!!!

By the time I pulled over, it was completely flat.... all within probably a mile to a mile and a half (going ~80).

Edit: Oh, I didn't give you a real number because I can't remember if we used 2 cans or one and a part, I think it was already hooked up to one when Doug pulled it out. You could visibly see that it wasn't enough air, so instead of checking the pressure and possibly losing some, we rode 2 miles to the gas station.

Thanks to Doug for having a plug kit and CO2. I have to get some of my own! I owe you one!
I do the same thing. I rest my index finger on the top of the break lever so I know where it is. I use three fingers to break.

One guy in the experienced group went wide on a turn. By the time we came thru, his bike was up, and people were both waving to slow us down and also to pass on thru

Front of the noob group slowed and went past, apparently Sik9 was following too close and grabbed the front brake mid corner and washed out
Bike slid a bit on him before he came off resulting in hole in knee (no knee pads)

All this was at prob 20 mph as we almost came to a complete stop when we saw the crowd.

Yeah, basically. I was behind Sik9. From my observation, it looked like he target fixated on the guy in the right hand shoulder waving people to slow down, looked back to see Michael2009, felt like he was too close then panicked and grabbed brake. That was from what I saw because I was right behind him. Sik9 did say that he grabbed the front brakes because he was too close to Michael. Knee pads and he probably could've walked away.

Besides the mishap, it was good fun! Nice meeting everyone!

Just got home. Great ride, except for the I45 Traffic at Dixie Farm (that sucked).

I have video of what the corner in question looked like from the vantage point of the front of the newb group.

Good to meet some new people and chat.

I rode the frontage from Scarsdale past Dixie, took about 4 min total.
But yeah that was the worse part of traffic on the way back.....

Ok ladies, just got home after unloading Sik9's bike in my garage. The bike rides good and just needs couple of new plastics, but overall in relative good condition.
First, hat off to Renzo, who came to pick up the bike all the way out to Yankee's. He really went out of his way on a day that he may have been enjoying with his family.
Sik9 is fine. A couple of stitches to close up the coin size hole on his knee. Other than that, just a couple of bruises and scratches. Kiddos, buy those protection gears. If Sik9 wore the knee guards today, he would have rode his bike home rather than be taken to the hispital, and bunch of us would have gotton home at least a couple of hours ago. Big lesson to you Sudan! But now you know.
As far as the crash is concerned, again, it was a tturn after a relative long straight. I came ahead of the noob group to poaition myself for a good video shot to show all the noobs comig to that turn, then noticed a Daytona in the fast group had a light laydown after that turn. Nothing major. Biker is fine, bike is fine. However, as bunch of bikes stopped to assist that crash, i went ahead and flaaged down the noobs coming out of that turn to slow down. Sik9 was following the bike in front of him too close, and he locked the front brake and the bike skidded down, and he rolled a couple times. It is a huge relief that the leader made sure the noobs were at 25 to 30 mph coming to that turn and there wasnt a single instance where we passed the limit.
In summary, today's ride was well organized and we all enjoyed it(most of us). Couple of mishaps, yes! But it was an well organized and safe ride that most of us enjoyed it, and the organizers executed a great job to control the pace and order. We all know this is the nature of the beast. That's why we wear all the protective gears despite the heat. Jimrad even sent a couple of guys back home because they werent wearing the protective gears. But he cant go out to check if everyone has the knee guard or protector under the pants. Ar least i know T-max wears one of those to pretext himself from all the dudes he carry in the back of that scooter. Kekeke!
In short, awesome time, and great show of camaraderie. Have a wonderful 4th everyone!
