Reno?!?! what are you doing in that stinkpot? Since you're not too far away maybe we can meet at the halfway point and go for a ride. That is if you decide to venture this way

Depending on my work schedule this weekend and the weather maybe I'll head east towards you. I should have a better idea by tonight I'll forewarn you though I'm a rookie. I do love carving up twisty roads but doubt i can or would even try to keep up with you. But we'll see I'm always down for meeting new people, and maybe I'll learn some things along the ride. I've been riding for almost 2 months and have logged a little over 2000 miles. Let me know if ur open this weeekend.

Sounds like a plan. I'm gonna be busy Sat (yay rewire server room at work ugh) but Sunday would work good if ya like. Dress warm hehe.

As far as street riding, I don't ride fast on the street at all. I save it for the track, so I don't mind taking it slow. I also don't know the area very well, but I'm sure we could find a few interesting roads.

Let me know if you're up for it and bring some friends if ya like.

So Smooth

My bike is running great, I'm definately gonna have to fix my tire before I commit to a long trip like that. I have been keeping an eye on my tire pressure and the leak is very slow. I have been doing what you suggested and it's working out better, especially on sunday when I went to hwy 49 and road some really nice twisties, some of them were insane and i had to take a few at a crawl. In a couple weeks we should go to highway 49 and make a day out of it, the ride is great and the scenery is amazing, most of the roads are real nice also. Thank you again for the help.

Yeah i know what you mean about being sore, all that squatting got to my knees and theyve been giving me a hard time the past few days. We'll definately have to check out the new part of the track homes, practice makes perfect.

It seemed to be running fine on the ride home. Sometime soon though I'd like to flush my coolant just to do some preventative maintenance, after all the BS from that dealership I'm not too sure of their competance anymore. Did you ever get around to bleeding your brakes, we speant all day working on my bike any never got around to yours.

i was able to do one side....i can not reach the brake leveler to do the left side....if you have some time on saturday i can show you how to bleed lines. it normally takes me about 30 minutes...it is just a matter of pumping the leverler for pressure.

to flush the coolant.....it is lot of time consuming. take all the fairings off like we did on saturday...then open up some hoses to drain all the bad coolant....inspect hoses...then add coolant. just in case....do not buy the coolant till your ready. i will tell you what kind of coolant and where to buy it....some dealers, want to get ri ch just by selling few items. if u know what i mean.

If you're gonna be going on the track with the bike, use Water Wetter. You do NOT want to be the guy who dumps antifreeze on the track.

Yeah I know what you mean about stealerships, I'm probly gonna have to work on saturday and sunday. It's not definite yet and I'm not sure what hours, I'm kind of on call. If I have some extra time it'd be great to come by, I'll help you with your brakes and bring you a ton of shop-towels. depending on what time I have maybe we can check out those trackhomes.

I dont plan on taking my bike to that track yet, maybe in 10 or 15 thousand miles depending on my riding abilities. I'm very interested in going some day. When i do I will be sure to use water wetter, would you reccomend using it for street and twistie riding. I do a lot of commuting through traffic during the week and It gets quite warm here in the central valley.

hey zzgixxer on another topic would you take a check for that jacket, I mentioned it to my grandmother and she said she wants to buy it as an early X-mas present for me.

Yep, works perfectly fine on the streets. I don't use antifreeze in my bikes at all.

And go to the track sooner. You just need to feel comfortable on the bike, and then its track time.

Alright thanks mael I'll give it a try on the streets, maybe I'll look into the track sooner also. I'm confident on my bike but i know there is still a ton of things I dont know or I'm doing wrong, finances are a bit tight right now but maybe I'll start saving towards a track weekend.

Thats what tracks are for. People have this idea that track days are just club racers tearing around the track and terrorizing the few newbies stupid enough to show up.

In actuality, they are amazing learning environments, where MANY people from ALL walks of life come and are welcome. You'll learn more in one DAY at the track than you would from a month of riding the canyons.
