I got a little carried away on Sunday morning and lost track of time. Family obligations meant I needed to hustle a bit to get home in time. First time slabbing on a bike in 10 years or so. Sunday morning traffic on the fresh side of I-90 gave me a chance to stretch the Ape's legs. Completely forgot what felony speeding on a sunny morning feels like. My bravery redlined before the bike did - but damn if that wasn't a life-affirming 10 miles or so.

Bikes are cool.

Finished rebuilding the old M last year. Raced it at RA, even stole a podium in TB, hadn't been there in 6 years, hadn't raced in 5. Still rockin' out with my cock out.

Also building a 2001 M600 for 500SS. Might even make the whole season this year.

Anyone wants to party, me and Grasshopper are still holding down the fort at the track. Later dudes.

PS. wtf is up with the constant loading of these BS pages on here.

I Just want to let everyone know that Gus / Resurrection passed away on Friday Feb 23rd 2018. Complications during heart surgery. Big bummer. I know he had quite a few friends on here so once we know memorial arrangements I will be posting in here. He is my best friend in the whole world and will be missed big time.

It was great to see everyone that was able to make it out for Gus. I know he was awful glad to see so many of us back together.

I wish this place could be what it once was again...days like Saturday remind me just what kind of group we can be.

Hope everyone is well...I'm going to try and post up in here a bit more. Seems like I might be the only one.

We talked about doing a group trip down to Indy for the SX event...I'll post something up for the 4 people that might see it.

What the heck happened here? Where'd everybody go? I admittedly haven't been on CSB in too long but I didn't know it'd become a ghost town, so I'm partly to blame. Everyone stopped riding? FWIW I haven't. Still ride S1000R on sportbike trips and track days throughout the summer and GSA on adventure trips. Sorry to see this happen. Is anyone still here from the old days?

Lots of forums are pretty dead now, especially the ones VS bought other than a handful of them.

Riding, well the YZF hasn't been started since 2013, got taken down on a HD Ultraglide by a hit and run driver in 2014. Basically just sticking to the track with a few rides on the ultra. Have a Zuma now for zipping around town and the paddock.
