    I found the N2 BF specials and grabbed a membership. I know you aren't going to do any PRE days, and I'm not sure if I'll do any TDW days, but I will definitely see you at some of the N2 events. Maybe I can talk you into showing me around NC Bike and VIR? :)

    BMWs for sale!

    Coming down 181 this morning (in the car) the weather was miserable. It was ~42 degrees and overcast. I said to Karen "I bet every motorcycle we see coming up 181 is a BMW." Sure enough, we saw two bikes and both were Beemers. :D

    BMWs for sale!

    Anytime someone says "selling to fund another project' my alarm bells go off. 😱 As for two fenders, it's just another example of BMW giving you more for your money! :D I've seen the last one before, and am tempted to go look at it. But I have no idea what I'd do with another street bike...

    Oohf talk about no sense of adventure. Just kidding! ;) We have different goals. I'm looking forward to the day when I've turned laps at every track in the SE. :)

    Yeah, I'll call them next week. And I'll be sure to tell them you're planning on being there too.

    Cool, thanks. TDW does not have memberships, correct? And does their registration fee cover camping and power? I looked on their website FAQ but didn't see any info on those topics.

    I spent a few minutes reading about Jennings on the WERA forums and "mediocre" might be an unfair judgement. It actually seems pretty well-liked over there. And it was designed by Ed Bargy, who apparently did Tally as well. But in the end, there is only one way to find out... :D

    GoPro mounts and locations

    I'd like to have a panoramic view that includes the tach and gear position indicator. Motorcyclist recommended mounting it to the top/front of the tank using a suction cup mount but that won't pass tech, will it? Plus it seems like it would be in the way while tucked in.

    There is no chance of me talking you into Jennings 1/30-31 is there. ;)

    GoPro mounts and locations

    Have you figured out how/where to mount the GoPro to the front of your bike? I may have accidentally ordered a Hero 9 BF bundle.

    I want to do VIR a bunch this year and PRE is the best option for that. But I plan on trying out N2 and TDW as well. :) edit - and am registered for March 29 at VIR North with PRE, if anyone wants to go. And 2slow, I haven't totally given up on getting you out on the track yet. :)

    Also, if you go to the GoPro website, they have a pretty decent BF deal on a Hero 9 bundle. :)

    Thank you, that insight is helpful. I got up early to grab one of the limited number of "Performance Memberships" from P.R.E. and did manage to get one. Doesn't look like N2 has any BF specials. Do you have any inside information on that front? I'd snag an Elite Membership if they have a...

    Yes please. And I wouldn't kick it out of bed if it was a 1000 either. We should write a strongly worded letter to Yamaha. ;) The bike I most regret selling - without question - is the TL1000S. That thing was an absolute blast to ride half of the time. The other half of the time it was...

    Have you ridden a parallel twin with a 270 degree crank? If not, you might be pleasantly surprised.

    I'd be interested to hear your take on the different organizations, and I won't be offended by anything good or bad you have to say. :)

    I actually rode one of those! The dealer was out on 74 iirc by the old BMW-Ducati store. Also rode a few Moto-Guzzis while I was there, and fell in love the the V11S. Almost bought one on the spot. In retrospect it would have been one of the dumber things I ever did ... and I've done some...

    Interesting schedule! Between N2 and PRE there's enough to keep anyone busy. :D If you draw a circle around Charlotte with a radius of four hours it wouldn't be a circle but hey bear with me. It would contain, in order of closest to furthest, the following: CMP VIR Road Atlanta NC Bike...

    US Motorcycle Sales 1999-2016 (and beyond)

    I have a different view on that. Four-cylinders are great for the track but I'll take a twin or triple for the street every time. The lower-frequency vibes are less fatiguing and the powerbands are more accessible. This makes them nicer to ride on long trips and more fun in the dynamic...

    Have you heard anything good or bad about the Michelin Power Slick 2?
