Today

Is anyone still riding their 12 anymore? Was 50 heading out today, went to the summit, on the way back a storm rolled in couldn't see with the visor down. I got caught off guard it Started snowing. and now as of writing this going to restock the handwarmers . You guys use handwarmers?? I tried and still have heated gloves and jacket but no luck getting those things to not hurt the charging system.

Where are you guyz bikes? Pictures videos???

With the sudden temp differntial had to put hands over the stator and clutch to keep hands warm enough to make it back.

Anyone replace one of these bad boys lately. How many hours/ miles before it wore out and the gearing that you used? Do you normally clean your chain or just run it as is?

I had to replace mine this summer, it was ripped in 2. I think I had roughly 50k km on the clock. All stock gearing. Don't clean it as much as I should.

Rode 1/2 day today, just flat out logged some hours. One of the best days this fall. Lots of riders on the road. You guys watch the show gold rush? This is a mining state lots of that sort of thing exist here up in the higher elevations. Rode the peaks, must have pit stopped near a gun range in the middle of a forest that was live. Place was hot. Later in the day witnessed a large mountain fire right along the interstate. Front row seats. Got back did some chain maintenance, noticed the chords showing on the rear, removing it tomorrow.

Rode with a liter bike, do you guys normally go after another rider and bump fist them? or do they come ride up to you and bump fist you? It was that kind of day. Guys bike had a dual exhaust and look like a later model zx10.

So much people moving to this state right now unreal population growth. Today was kind of a truck day everybody out in their trucks. Guy in a f250 was brake checking me had the 12 stand up right next to him like never before. The blue mustang at DIA just came to mind. He slowed and never gave me any trouble after that.
