With a foot of snow on the ground here, it's probably going to be a while before I get out for a ride. For the winter months, I have to find another way to amuse myself so I got some video editing...

Autumn days are some of my favorite rides.

Heated gear is a must-have item when you live in an area where it gets cold. I generally ride from the beginning of March to the end of November.

I agree with most of the other people here regarding wind. Anything under 80 isn't too bad. Over 80 and wind does begin to get tiresome.

Absolutely correct about "how" a bike carries it's weight. While my K1600 is over 100lbs lighter than my Harley, it feels heavier because the BMW is rather top heavy while the Harley has a nice low...

The STR is a great bike and is my favorite bike right now. If I were to replace it, I'm pretty sure the Super Duke 1290 or S1000r would be top contenders.

Having multiple bikes is really the...

I made the switch to a 15t front sprocket 5 or 6 weeks ago. I like it. For around $12 and less than an hour's work to install, it was well worth it.

I went the opposite way and installed a 15 tooth front sprocket. While not a huge difference, it does rev a bit quicker and feels a bit snappier. Well worth the $12 for the sprocket and less than...

Only have 100-150 miles on them so far but they seem to feel quite good. They're not as quick to turn in as the Pilot Power 3's that I took off but they seem like they have a smoother transition. ...

I swapped the stock 16 tooth front sprocket for a 15 tooth. I always felt that 1st gear was geared too high but it seems to feel better now. Speedo is off about 5 mph at 65 mph.

I'm happy with it for now, but something newer and better is bound to come along eventually.

The KTM Super Duke, Aprilla Tuono, and BMW S1000R sure look like fun. :smile:

Nice ET's!

Just out of curiosity, what were your 60' times?

Keep in mind that reaction time has absolutely no effect on your ET. The ET timers don't start until you break the starting...

I just added the Triumph quick shifter to my 13 STR. Installation is completely plug and play and only took about 30 min. I've only ridden once due to the weather but so far, I like it!
