Yikes! #nationalmeltonthewaytoworkday

We're only supposed to hit like 74 today. The ride in was perf

I'll bet it was! Riding "season" here also flipped, bikes go away for the two worst months of summer, but usually ride all winter long.

Safety first. Only half kidding, rode it around the block after washing it to try get more of the water spots out of the hard to reach places

Looking for new leather riding gloves after my last pair had an unfortunate incident involving a campfire after a long day of riding in the rain.

Requirements:
  • Deerskin or elkskin (for toughness & flexibility)
  • Outseam construction (those seams really start to get annoying after a long time on the road)
  • Available in brown (since apparently nobody makes a teacore glove)
  • MiUSA
Right now, the frontrunners seem to be Sullivan Glove Co, Fox Creek Leather, and James Churchill Glove Company. Does anyone have experience with these companies or recommendations for alternatives?

I'm not sure whether you're looking for a heritage-y look (most of those gloves look pretty classically styled) but if you're not worried about a few more technical features you might look at Klim. I dunno whether they're MiUSA or not (since the website doesn't trumpet that fact I'm guessing not) but I have had good luck with their stuff.

Klim is great at what they do, but just not for me. Definitely looking for a more traditional style glove, though.

As soon as I typed my prior response on my phone, my omniscient FB feed started throwing up ads for moto gloves, lol. Maybe try Macleod? I had never heard of them but they might be a good fit for what you're looking for.

Firefox has a Facebook container mod that keeps all meta assets walked off from your browsing if you care.

Have you looked at Lee Parks Deer Tours?

Agreed. Back on topic, my little chopper parked against the wall and my 78 F-250 Supercab. Don't need to do the 142 miles each way to the track next time I go, so I guess I should get another track day booked soon.

Need to get this thing back together, cracked the left side engine case and haven't bothered to put the 2 hours into replacing it for a year now.

Man, this thread used to be so active, with great posters like this guy, Trini, but doing like 3 pages a year these days, at best. Bummer. Doesn't look like Kookz has posted in here for almost 10 years now! If you're reading this buddy, still waiting for you to stop by on that jaunt to South America

Wow, talk about a blast from the past. I lament the passing of the "forum era" regularly (was just reminiscing about their demise last weekend actually), but I suppose I am just as guilty of moving on from them as well.

So many things have changed in life, one being that I don't really ride anymore. I still have the Ducati but it hasn't been ridden in years and needs basically everything gone through before it's roadworthy. Back in 2015 I bought a KTM 690 Enduro, added a rally kit to it, and did some cool/fun riding for a few years. After a trip from TX down to Acapulco and Oaxaca, I got back to the US and promptly had the bike stolen. I replaced it with a 69 Roadrunner (since I had gotten adopted a dog and it's hard to bring a Rottweiler on a bike), and then continued the descent into the mundane, sold the Roadrunner and bought a Model 3 Performance.

Last year I bought a DS1000 Hypermotard motor for the Sport Classic, but I don't know when or if that project will actually happen. I did move down to Charlotte, and so there are loads of great roads just west of me...so maybe this winter?
