New Member saying Hello

Whats up fellowriders.......60 years old, LONG time rider, been there done that, twice, lol.

Live in Spring, looking for some new people to ride with. Im old school, tend to ride old school machines, but not to worry, they will keep pace

Own several machines, wrench them all myself, and take pride in them running and performing BETTER than they were when new.

I tend to like "fast" runs, and love the "Forest", 3090, and the like. I am a ATGATT rider, and like to ride with the same. I WILL NOT ride with squids, seen too many get hurt, and generally have nothing in commomn with them.

i own: 2 ZRX 1200's, of course piped n jetted and well tuned. 1 wicked little ZRX 1109 with cams, port work, pipes, 40's, and a big weight loss diet, lol.
She runs WAY over her CC weight, and knows every twisty road within 300 miles of her garage.

3 Triumphs too. 1 "cruiser" 1200 Trophy, "Eleanor" she is my sit back n relax ride. Calm, mannered, elegant, quiet, but quite capable once to speed.
2 Daytona 1200's. I stock for taking Ladies out on mildly spirited rides, and "Lola", a full boogie Daytona 1200 with pipes, head work, degreed cams, and very good jetting in her. My preferred ride. No she wont hang with a ZX14, nor a 'Busa, UNTIL the road turns, then she will hang with about any STREET level run I have been a party to.

I also own an insane KTM 300 XC-W, which makes me pray to I am still alive after EVERY ride on her. One day the little monster is going to plant me in the ground like a cheap tent stake!!! But, I still ride it, so who is the stupid one

Been to the Smoky Mountains several times, run the Gap a bunch, have a fairing hanging in the tree of shame , and LOVE to run Arkansas, the pig trail, and ALL the roads up there.


Joined today on advise from a friend, probably the strongest rider I have ever ridden with. His "street" level pace is beyond most peoples track day
speed, yetis safe to run with. His limits are sky high, but he lives in Austin, and we rarely get to run together. Following him on the 3 Sisters is PURE JOY for me...................he said to check this place out as he "heard" it had some good riders on good machines. So I did. Thanks Chris!!!!

So there it is, say hello if you have a mind to. I love to have Mod days and wrench sessions, and if you have Carbs, I CAN fix them.lol........still to this day do not own any injected bikes. DID own one, a '12 ZX14, but it HAD to go. If it didnt, I would be writting this hello from JAIL........and I like riding too much.

Jet

So, have you been staying on the road lately??? Ran the forest last weekend, had a squid following me into the nasty hard right hander at the end of the long downhill straight. He never saw the corner, went straight off into the grunge at a good clip. Not as fast as your little oooops, but his bike looked kind of like yours when it stopped banging off trees. He suffered 2 broke toes and some mangled fingers. Bet he never rides in a hoodie and tennis shoes again, and NEVER on that pos Gixxer he HAD!!!!

Looked up the Fizzy 1/4 mile times. I was SHOCKED!!!! No wonder your bike pulled mine. I no longer have a slipping clutch, so we need a round 2.

No corners this time, I couldnt bear to see that "flight" of yours again!!!!

All seriousness, HOW you walked away from that is just beyond me. Hope you have been going to church, and buying Lotto tickets!!!!!

I saw your post about that on the ZRX board...guy had the gall to cuss at you for trying to help him...if you looked up FZ1 times add more to it for mine...ive had a full exhaust system with other goodies...PCV dyno tuned...add another 20 to 25 hp over the stock numbers you saw plus lighter weight...if you thought the red one ran good this one would run off and leave it...we will definately pick a straight road this time...dont think my luck will hold out twice...im impressed with all the knowledge youve shown here lately on bike repair and upkeep..keep up the good work...

Then my "Lola" will be no match for you on the straights.

She has a new clutch, and VERY good tune, but she is probably a high 10 second 1/4 mile bike, at about 125- 130 trap speeds. She excells t speed, and holding it.

This weekend Im gonna run her in roll ons against some ZRX's, like Mitch's "lil 100", lol. She MIGHT have a chance against them.

YEAH, the dumbass yelled at me for trying to help him, said I "blocked" his view of the corner!!!!

i left him in the woods trying to upright his POS, with front tire pointed dead left, and axle end jammed into his header pipes
