  3. Last week
  4. Update on the Decibullz after a month of use. I rank the top / #1 in what I've used in all my years riding. They're as comfortable as anything else I've worn. They have better noise reduction - though not anything drastic. I assume this is from the proper "outer seal" of the ear. They're quicker & easier to get properly inserted. I no longer need to do the reaching behind my head / pull ear with opposite arm while inserting. I can just get these in place and smoosh 'em in. Worth the money in my opinion. I'd buy them again. Soon, I should be able to compare them to the 100% custom molded plugs (meaning the inner plug + the outer base). Hopefully I'll remember to offer a comparison then.
  5. Plans for now will stay the same as March: Community Garage / Ride: All invited to arrive any time TBD AM or later. There'll be coffee, water, donuts. Kickstands up no later than TBD AM. Leaving sooner could allow a more twisty, less direct route. Arrive @ Elk Creek no later than TBD for custom molded ear plug service. $50 per set. Takes 10-15 minutes each to make. I advised there will be TBD people buying plugs, with a potential 5th. We're flexible at this point. Lunch probably a good idea . Share suggestions? Let me know if any questions or if I've left anything out!
  6. Re-schedule of March season opener - let's try to kick off the season again! We've had a few warmer days in March, but our Community Garage days ended up being accompanied by snow/rain and temps below freezing. WHAT: A day to perform various light maintenance on motorcycles, then a group ride afterwards. Examples of "light maintenance": changing oil, changing brake pads, chain / sprocket replacements, motorcycle wash & dry, chain clean & lube, adjust suspension, install a horn etc. You will ride to the garage, and ride out with the group as we finish. WHY: To be a resource for tri-state riders who: Don't have tools and/or a place to work on their motorcycle. Do have tools and/or a place to work, but enjoy wrenching with others. Just want to hang out, watch & learn from each other. WHERE: I'm willing to host at my house. I have most tools, a motorcycle lift, universal stands, chain tool/belt gauge, etc. WHEN: To be decided by this poll. Barring the unknown, it'll be the date with the most votes. Time of day TBD closer to the date as discussed in this topic. Anything I haven't addressed? Let me know... Important: We're hobbyists who love motorcycles & enjoy wrenching on our own. Attendees are self-taught people who learn from the web, forums, YouTube, etc. There will be no mechanics, certified professionals or similar attending. The person who rides the bike to the event - and only that person - is wholly responsible for that bike and anything done in the garage. This includes any and all damage, accidental or otherwise. You must ride out with the group as the day finishes. This is not for long-term projects or storage.

  8. @JeremyM @Atrain @Windfall @Elongo06 @Benjamelon @Remi Anne Right now, weather outlook shows: Sunday, March 12th: High of 46 degrees + scattered rain Sunday, March 19th: High of 54 + partly sunny UPDATE - Community Garage + Group Ride will now be Sunday, March 19th. I called Elk Creek and confirmed the person who does ear plugs will be there for us on the 19th (typically her day off). Plan for the 19th: All invited to arrive any time 8:30 AM or later. There'll be coffee, water, donuts. Kickstands up no later than 10:30 AM. Leaving sooner could allow a more twisty, less direct route. Arrive @ Elk Creek no later than Noon for custom molded ear plug service. $50 per set. Takes 10-15 minutes each to make. I advised there will be 4 people buying plugs, with a potential 5th. We're flexible at this point. Lunch probably a good idea . Share suggestions? Let me know if any questions or if I've left anything out!
  9. That sounds pretty damn good. Very nice.

  11. Motorcycle: 2010 Kawasaki ZX6R Rider: 29, M, Single, no tickets ever, temporary permit only Policy: Full coverage 250/500 $281/year, I think it's a $500 ded on comp/collision. With American Modern through Geico I don't know, this makes me feel like I am getting a pretty good deal on insurance seeing what you all pay. I was told it will go down once I have my endorsement as well. We'll see by how much. I had a 15k comprehensive claim from when a deer hit my car about two years ago. Not sure if those change the price or anything though, I don't think my auto policy went up.
  12. If it's the same woman that did mine, she's a badass with a shotgun. http://www.womensoutdoornews.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/ShadoePerry2.jpg
  13. Yes, I'll buy a sst of plugs. Thank you for calling everyone and putting this together!
  14. Interesting, maybe they changed that policy. For me they were hundreds cheaper than Progressive. I liked progressive but Erie is excellent. My 24-25 policy will have 0 deductible. šŸ˜‰
  15. Interesting. I actually checked my bike only with Erie, and it was over twice as expensive as Progressive. I don't recall seeing anything about needing an auto policy, but maybe that had something to do with it...
  16. Motorcycle: 2019 ZX636(GKF) Rider: 40M,S no tickets or accidents Full coverage 100k/300k/100k U-M 100/300/100 Policy changes: 2023 will be changed to "leisure". Some reason it's not set. Should lower it. $656 a year with a $50 deductible with Erie.(annual vanishing deductible and rate lock) Note: Erie will not insure a single bike, I believe you need a auto policy as well. The full auto WITH bike FC for both is $1,119. Which should go down.
  17. UPDATE - @Atrain @Elongo06 @JeremyM @Windfall @Benjamelon I called about 15 different places (moto shops / dealers, gun ranges, sporting goods retailers, race tracks, etc). The only one that offers the service of custom molded earplugs is the place mentioned above in Owenton, KY. I called Elk Creek to confirm they still offer the ear plug service. Info below: Custom molded earplugs available. Standard, solid plug (ie no interchangeable filters). Cost is $50 per set. Takes about 10 minutes each to make. Our meetup / ride is set for Sunday, March 12th. There is 1 person at Elk Creek that does the plugs, and she does not work Sundays. HOWEVER, she offered to come in on Sunday 12th at a specific time to make plugs for us. I told her I would confirm & get back to her. So - to each of you - please let me know one of the below ASAP. She is also ordering more materials to ensure she has enough. YES - I WILL buy a set of plugs. NO - I will NOT buy a set of plugs. Let me know - I want to call her back & let her know ASAP.
  18. Hell yea. There's 1 place that does plugs that @JeremyM has been to. I plan on calling them to confirm they still do it. Definitely open to other ideas.
  19. I'd love to join as well! And the destination for custom earplugs is perfect! Do you have any in mind or just fishing for ideas for now?
  20. Sounds good. Edit: Heads up, that's the FIRST day of Daylight Savings Time.
  21. Since the 12th & 19th tied for votes, let's plan on doing this on the 12th. That way, we can fall back to the 19th if weather sucks or something else happens. @Atrain @Elongo06 @JeremyM @Windfall - whattaya think? I'll have coffee, water, donuts at the garage. People can start showing up anywhere around 10am. (share thoughts on time) We'll head out for the ride when everyone is here, ready & done wrenching (usually a couple / few hours). Preliminary ride destination idea is somewhere we can get custom molded ear plugs. One place in the past was Elk Creek Hunt Club & Resort in Owenton, KY (1 hour / 55 miles from Fountain Square as a general idea). Share other destination ideas you have - especially those who offer custom ear plugs. Share your preference on arrival time & ride destinations per above. Anything we've missed? IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JOINOING US BUT MISSED VOTING - REACH OUT! WE'D LOVE TO HAVE YOU!
  22. Oooh an Indian! I like it. Look forward to meeting you some time this year.
