It maybe 75 this weekend, but riding to work today sucked. I'm totally spoiled, it was in the 40's, and felt like I was riding in a cloud! I had to bundle up!! What is this crap..

I think I'll be riding in today . It'll be gorgeous going in at 72 and cool at night at 40 . The perks of SoCal. And 40 ain't cold with this New York blood in my veins ..

I'm going up to big bear mountain/lake arrowhead/crestline tomorrow. I have no riding buddies, so you guys will be there with me in spirit.

No biggie guys we will convene some other time, happy thanksgiving, I'm definitely thankful for the friends I made on here. This will be the first thanksgiving on my own, a chance to truly be thankful, no awkward dinner, no unappreciative people(relatives) with their ego driven back-and-forths, no gossiping women taking pictures just to update their fb, it'll be just me, my bike, and the earth. Taking in the day, thinking about my master plan(to save the world), and hopefully running into some less fortunate ones, to donate a little of my time to, and do some meditating(counting my breath)...

Just to keep things going, filled her up with fuel!

Ohlins, nice! Also planning to do the front end eventually for better suspension balance? I did have the luxury to test ride a new speed triple r, if it handles anything like that it - you won't be disappointed to say the least!

Good eye. Yes the wheelbase is slightly shorter because of the new spring. Its a bit longer then the old one, and it definitely steering quicker then before. Should be slightly less stable on the higher speeds but I can't tell at the moment.

Thanks bro. I'm still doing the research on my options for the forks. There's a few ways I can go. If anything, put a set of ohlins springs for my weight.
