I use MPH across the street. They will mount while I wait w/out an appointment. About $20 mount and balance. Never had a problem. 15 minutes in and out.

I have to remind myself to stir up the gearbox when searching for explosive corner exiting on the 250.
Steve, wifes bike I just rode it home for her, yes the brakes will get better I think, I was taking it easy on them till they are broke in. But yes you are right, I think this will be a fun bike.

The obscure hour thing may have something to do with your work schedule......Your time off generally is some obscure hour

Yep 1970something Trail 90 that is Mike's, and the 1972 RV90 is mine. Both street legal, plated and insured! Mike would have to chime in on the year.

People were staring at us riding there... We both had shit eating grins ear to ear. Thos little bikes are too much fun!!

We had to get back tonight, hope to have the next tag up by Thursday. Wife has me scheduled out tomorrow night. Is there a time frame I have to have it up by? I didn't see anything in the rules, but want to follow proper etiquette so as not to upset the inmates...

So here we go, a new (and updated) thread for anyone who rides in the Northeast Ohio area.
Lets start out with a game of Photo Tag. Here are the rules.

To claim a tag you must post a photo of your bike (or some portion thereof) within a full view of the tag that was placed. No file photo allowed for claiming. You must ride there. Please include location of the tag.

If you are the first person to claim that tag you can post a picture of your bike in a new place! Please be ready to post a new tag right away. In this case file photos are allowed for placement. Multiple tags okay within the spirit of the game but please keep it reasonable.

Tag must be accessible from a publicly recognized road. Dirt & gravel is okay as long as you warn ahead of time. Obviously the point is not to get someone into a sticky situation. 

You can always tag your own mailbox or order pizza and tag a car with a little Caesars sign on the roof or be really cunning and repost the same photo and change the target to a trail 90...

Doesnt have to be a new pic for the "next up" photo, just for getting the tag.

So just post something you have on your camera, phone or computer with a bike in it. As long as its in NEO (north of 39)
