Topics

U-TURN

GARAGE

  • Rich is starting to take apart the R6 for a new chain and sprockets.  Enjoying the process of cleaning it up, looking for things that need to be fixed, and just becoming familiar with a sport bike.  
  • Jon has 15k service done on the Spyder and learns that the semi-auto shifting requires good oil pressure.  Since it was a quart low, the shifting was not smooth.

The 2000 Yamaha R6 on the stands with the lower fairings removed.  Rich is coming up to speed with this type of bike and performing some maintenance before getting this on the road.  

New bike Jon mentioned and belongs to Moto-vlogger Sp3ak.

Hmmm, what would you get if you crossed these two brands?  We give our thoughts on the rumor of Harley making a bid for Ducati.  Photo credit: Chris Geiss

1st East Coast Moto Amino Meetup:

  • Was setup by Irishman80 back in February 2017 to have a meetup in Charlotte NC on June 10th 2017.
  • Turned into a memorial ride due to a fellow rider that passed away after the announcement.  
  • Had assistance from other Moto Amino NC Members - Demic, ApeRSV (NC Ambassador), KP Moto, SonciMoto, Crux, and Sp3ak.
  • There were about 25 riders from across the state and a few out of state riders (SC, PA, and CO)
