Super III's are getting hard to come by - last one I saw was at Foothills BMW a few years ago. I had a '95 Speed Triple and had a riding buddy in Vegas with a Super III.

Nice Alcon 6 pot brakes... and with that 6.6 gallon tank they're a pretty good sport tourer!

This one is pretty sweet. It has K&N pods so I may go back to the stock airbox. Came with stock and aftermarket exhaust, Triumph rear cowl plus the Corbin and a few other goodies

Where can one acquire good green chili in the Denmetro area?

I'm not so much talking about chili for smothering, but chili as a dish.I get this green Chili at Ramona's in Fairplay and it's awesome. . . Some days I'd like to be able to have some without driving 90 miles.

In the City of Longmont we successfully voted in for the city to do gigabit fiber as a city utility yesterday!

http://www.ci.longmont.co.us/lpc/TC/index.htm

LONGMONT IS BUILDING A GIGABIT CITY

As part of the November 5 election, Longmont’s voters approved funding for the full development of the City’s fiber optic broadband network. We would like to thank the community for supporting this move toward a future filled with progress and opportunity. As a true gigabit city, we are and will be positioned to be a leader in digital communications and a global information hub. We are lighting tomorrow, today.

Next Steps:
- Selection of a vendor to conduct design and engineering services
- Issuance of revenue bonds to fund system build-out
- Design of system expansion
- Purchase of materials needed for construction
- Selection of construction vendor
- Construction - estimated duration approximately 3 years

Service Availability:
In 2014, residents and businesses will be able to pre-register for services. We will promptly notify the community as actual sign up and connection capabilities are available.

That repel with the bike was awesome!
Ironic that probably the most dangerous part of the ride (as in beyond his control =traffic) was the first 10 seconds and he didn't wear his helmet

Have you gotten an OSET yet Joz? :-)

I cant wait till they come out w/ and adult version of the OSET.

Even the 20.0 48v OSET is only rated for a 100 lbs.

There is a 26 inch Oset out there. However, must get rid of the rear disc brake, too much stress on the spokes and hub. Torque monster.

Yeah. I've had one for years. I helped with the electrics on the prototypes. Got photos of it somewhere. Looked like a mad scientist's dream!
