Holy cow, you da man Gary!

Here's the update: Winner can choose from a YA-036 (Gen II) or a YA-056 (Gen I)

And to further sweeten the pot, the winner can throw some cash ($TBD) into the deal and upgrade to a YA-707 (full-featured Gen II) or a YA-342 (full-featured Gen I) if they desire.

I'll do my best to have all four shock choices on hand at the banquet with springs and a spring compressor. Bring your Roc-Straps. :yahoo:

How's that?

Good day all, any recommendations on where to find a great motorcycle friendly road map for NC/TN area?

AAA maps (NC & SC are on the same map) are not detailed enough to depict smaller roads...

Thanks!


Try these folks

must have for riding in WNC

Yep, 9 years now. One more year and I'll get my native residency permit. :yahoo:

I drive past the EOM host hotel twice every day. For the life of me, I can't figure out why Wayne chose to have EOM here. The only good road in the area is I-26.

I-26 is nice and straight there, correct? It will make for a good place to do some top end runs with the NOS bottle cracked open...

As a side note, "off-roading" on a street bike like the FJR is not for everyone. It's a personal choice, and level of risk the rider has to be willing to accept. I see posts to the effect of you're an idiot to where's that road at again. If it's not for you, then fine. If it is, fine.

... BentAero seems to have some pull with the powers that be within Ohlins USA. They have offered to host a tour of their Hendersonville facility on Friday the 21st of September for all EOM attendees.

Somehow I don't think sampling Ohlins suspension fluid will be as good as sampling the fluids at Buffalo Trace last year.

Yeah it was!!

But it has cost me a lot of money since then as I have subsequently developed am unquenchable thirst for their Eagle Rare Single Barrel
Luckily for me they carry it at the State store here and it is on sale this month!

There will typically be a "How you getting there" thread started around the end of July / beginning of August when people start to firm up their travel plans.

Annette and I will most likely detour easterly through SE Ohio on our way down. I hope to spend the better part of a week getting there...
