    Congrats on another membership! Absolutely happy to show you around. CMP was repaved this season, so the configuration is the same, but certainly better tire wear and grip. NC Bike can be run in both directions and if they recreate the chicane over the winter, there will be with and without...4...

    Ha ha! I'm definitely not trying to do that. Tying to do this until I'm too old, and trying to do it on the cheap.

    I'm not completely sure. Maybe worth a note to them?

    GoPro mounts and locations

    Right. No room on the tank on mine if I want to see any gauges and be able to be in a tuck down the straights. I'll likely add a mount to the front of each fairing below where I look through the windscreen. Many seem to like 100 mounts to move it around, but for my purposes, the front for me...

    Not even a little. WAY to far of a drive for me and no interest in that much work for a medicre track. I get plenty of track time in every season!

    GoPro mounts and locations

    It happens... I'm starting on the fenders. There's really not much point in teh side ones as your body blocks most of the image if you're hanging off. Some people like swingarm. Meh. Hope to test the front fender on the 250 later today. It is sprung. The others are unsprung, so we'll see if...

    I hear ya. VIR and PRE are definitely in bed together. At least the other orgs get to my favorite configurations, South and Patriot. You'll have a blast at North with tire warmers. :) I won't be at the North course.

    Thanks Eric. I'm sticking with the GoPro 7 I have. It'll be more of a coaching tool than anything else. The 8 and 9 gained some tech, but lost functionality. You pulled the pin on PRE. Nice! We're opposites. lol I don't have any info on the others except for the preliminary N2 schedule pasted...

    US Motorcycle Sales 1999-2016 (and beyond)

    I'm sure that I can't remember tham all, but Laverda Ghost, Yamaha TDM850, FZ-07. They were all...fine. I can't stand bikes that look like Transformers, so nearly all of the new crop don't float my boat. I've never looked at or ridden an Aprilia that I liked. Yamaha and honda seem to be the best...

    We can talk before you do anything. Many will have black Friday deals tomorrow. I coach for N2 and TDW, so I'm biased in that area. I used to run with NESBA/PRE, but it is a very clicky group now. You're in or you're out. They do not take advice from members. PRE does have a near strangle hold...

    I owned that, with the exhaust, and a 748 w/Borlas on it. My friends called either of them the wall of sound when they were following me. Neither were comfortable, but I loved riding them. I've never met a triple I liked, or a parallel twin, for that matter. single, V2, or I4 it seems.

    Those are them, and the only ones I go to anymore, although I skip Roebling. Not my bag, baby. It is worth trying all of the orgs, as they each have their own personalities and levels of things like speed/safety/humor. Find ones that work for you.

    I'm a Dunlop guy, but people seem to like Michelins. I haven't ridden on any since this almost happened.

    Wishful thinking, I think. Economical scooters seem more likely with the seemingly effeminate males of today, or so I'm told by my female friends. An inline 4 or v-twin in a 250-500cc desplacement seems like fun, but what they're making today is all about low cost. Tiny singles and parallel...

    Likely local rides 11/26, 11/27, & 11/28 ~1-3 p.m.

    I'm constantly amazed at how few people actually ride. It is a shame considering the superb weather nearly year round as well as the proximity of decent roads with minimal traffic.
