    AMA Racing - Mid-Ohio

    Rode to Mid-Ohio today to watch the AMA races. I only went today, skipped yesterday, to much to do. It was a nice 80 mile ride to it, mostly slab but was able to run a good pace, no popo's on the way there. Met an old friend that I hadn't seen in a while so we agreed to meet and go to the...

    Just a quick photo

    Was out today hoping for a nice sunset w/ clouds we had all day. It didn't pan out as the clouds disappeared, therefore I grabbed this shot and headed for home.

  4. Octupi mirror block offs

    Bought Cycle One-off FZ-1 in black for my bike. From their site they look fairly nice. In person on the bike, I won't mince words, P.O.S. They appear to have been hand cut (and not well), the holes for the bolts were burred on both sides and not filed, and the fit was very poor. For $65...

    Good read on MC oil

    For those that like their synthetics, here's a good read. Personally, I've been running Amsoil for 15+ years in all my bikes and cars, so at first oil change I will be changing my FZ1 over to it. I'm not promoting one over the other, but this is one informational document. ARTICLE FOUND HERE

    Helmet Lock Solutions?

    OK, I have an '09 FZ1 and wondering what everyone else does for their helmets? Do you all carry them inside with you, leave them on the bike unlocked or are you locking them up? I'm considering a simple cable lock that I can connect to the rearset and lock my helmet and tankbag to it when I...
