Discovery: Fairings are ineffective at asphalt grinding
Sorry guys, I will not be making tonights ride.

Did a 4 day bike-backpacking trip last week. Went down and discovered my safety gear does work GREAT but the R6 fairings are very ineffective at asphalt grinding. I didn't even leave a mark in the road.

Got SOME work to do on the bike.

glad to hear you're ok.... Yep, ever since I went down some 22 years ago on my Ninja 600R, I have been a strong believer in ATGATT.

Damn marbles!
If you put BMX pegs on the spool mounts you can hit curbs and rails without laying the bike down.


Hope you didnt scrape off anything that you can't bolt back on.

I did the old route like we used to do last year with rob, and farmer dickhead decided to come yell at us again for "being in the middle of the road" which we were on the side. So if you take the old route to old skyline, He then proceeded to try and follow us in his GMC diesel. Be careful

My inner squid took control of my brain and I fucked up the ride for the last couple of guys in the fast group, but up to that point that section of McNamee was great. Thanks for the introductions and experience gained. I'll try to come to the Wed. meetups soon to get some of the intro lessons before I jump in again.

I Ride: For Rob, Gary, Bill, Sax... and the newbs
slight hi-jack... sorry!
This Tuesday (Aug 7) I am hosting a New Rider Ride that will end at TNC - like I used to do!

Rob started this thread months ago to try and help keep those Tuesday rides happening... and God LOVES him for it!

So - for at least this week, and hopefully a few more!! I am going to be doing my Newby rides again!!

Some changes - I will be starting the ride (at least this week) from HERE Threat Dynamics.

There is a seperate thread for this ride, but I hope to get a decent turn out (to promote a relationship between 'us' and Ryan of Threat Dynamics because 1. awesome buisiness he has and 2. AWESOME parking lot he has!)

There is obviously a change to my 'normal' route - but the roads I have planned are just as challenging and fun as normal.

I am also hoping more experienced riders will arrive and be willing to lead a group or two of faster riders thru some fun twisties (I'll have maps) back to Ava's!

ciome on out ya'll!
