Apologies to anyone who was trying to access the site on Tuesday between 6am and 4pm pacific time. I moved the servers to a new physical location, and despite careful effort to schedule the timing precisely, my service provider still screwed up and cut my connection about 7 hours earlier than anticipated.
As a result, the forum was offline while I waited and waited for the tech to show up a the new place to heat up the line.
The new home for the servers should be a permanent resting place! Sorry again for any inconvenience -
Discuss or start a topic about sport bikes
Additionally the old server was having some serious issues … for example, I just noticed it had fallen over again. I’ve put it back up in case you’re looking for some old stuff -
Pictures and videos of bikes, rides, etc.
(And got a sticker worth at least 5hp)
Thank you Mr. Cox
Sometimes 160+ “indicated”… my braking area is a bit tough since I have been there 3 times in 7 years lol.
Discuss whatever you’d like here - open to all topics.
I’m thinking about the epoxy kind with the little color flecks in it and the abrasive texture. Worried it might be good when wet - but a bitch to sweep or clean.
To all the women who ride sportbikes - this forum is for you!
I’m in! Ladies… start your engines!!!
Your one stop library of useless sportbike information, on the information superhighway.
Ask questions and get answers on how to stay safe while riding your motorcycle
Yeah that sent shivers down my spine.
Helmets. gloves, jackets, etc. You need to protect yourself from everything and anything. So what should you buy? Check out what others have to say.
I was die hard shoei fan, they make great helmets, but made my switch starting in 2012 to Scorpion. I run the track with the R2000 and street with the T1200. R2000 was great since it came with a clear and tinted visor, while the t1200 came with an awesome helmet bag.
t1200 also has cutouts for my sena as well, but at over 70mph, the wind noise gets a bit too loud to hear the sena. Still cant complain regarding either helmets and most of their lineup. They do exactly as advertised and quality is great. Price point, I don’t think they have any competition even remotely close to their price range.
Racing, track days and other various knee-to-the-pavement activities.
Sweet. I didn’t watch too much Moto GP this year. Gonna need to download the races and catch up!

Hey Murph…That bike is so beautiful but I think I’m going to stick with the Glady for a while longer. Apparently I’m not done with her yet.

Has DW been getting good attendance lately? I haven’t been to one in years. Maybe some of the Fall clinics would be good for rainy-day stuff.

3 digets looks much better on the speedo then on the thermometer… nice cool days are coming. Before long, we’ll need long johns to go up past Prescott!

Hey Redd. I think you helped me with my first tire change at my house in NW OKC on my black 04 636. Any chance you know Kilburn a.k.a. Kokojokeamo, a.k.a TIREWALL?
But nobody has joined yet? Guess it is too soon. Welcome, to all Triumph riders that eventually come in!
Yeah I noticed that on the nose as well… However, I like the idea of going back to fairings reducing the vibration along the edges rather than what it is currently. My 2011 zx10r race bike had bodywork that wrapped the edges of the windscreen and it was great at speed.
My 2015’ will have race bodywork soon without the extra piece along the edges of the windscreen using the stock one.
