Hey Squidly, Glad to see you're back. I still have Ross's Daytona 675 if you're ever up for a ride.

Wow!!! Have to say I'm really touched by the "Welcome Back". I mean really!!

BARF Jam? Absolutely. I've been buying guitars and recording gear at an alarming rate since I've been off of two wheels. I had a discussion here with somebody a few years ago and I said something thoroughly stupid about electric guitars not being "real" instruments. Sigh......I'm an idiot (we all know this), and have been buying lots of electric guitars.

Connie, you've been hurt for a few years? Shit, what did I miss? Yikes!!!!

Yes, I bought a "sensible" bike. Given the insane power some of the new bikes are producing, my Speed Triple seems positively pedestrian. I WAS sensible and bought used. It's not an RS, but it is an R model. Full Ohlins, lots of carbon fiber goodies and under 10k miles.

I also had to buy all new gear and a new rear stand. I donated my old helmets to EMTs so they could practice removing them. I gave my Alpinestars jacket to a cold homeless man in SF one morning.

I still have a set of tire warmers and a couple of MV Agusta oil filters if anyone is interested...oh and the air intake grill for a 2009 Daytona 675.

It's so good to be back!!!! I rode to work this morning and giggled.

I've already been looking at track bikes.

When I go back on the track, my plan is to get a Ninjette and ride around like I'm in a Moto3 race. Whatever track bike I get in the future, it's going to be small.

I used full-size warmers on my 300.

Welcome back! (yup, I'm not on here a lot lately, life has me busy AF). I've actually been offroad only for the last 4 years because I bought a commuter car (well, I leased 2 of them).

I hope you told the doctor you rubbed some dirt on it...

Welcome back!

I got bad news for you though. My dad's an engineer and he said that triples are inherently unstable.
