    So I went to a concert tonight, not on motorcycles, with one of my motorcycle buddies. I was discussing my collecting of track gear for an upcoming trackday. Said I pretty much ordered everything but gloves thus far. He said he was on way to Deal's Gap one time with bike in the back of his truck, forgot his gloves, bought some at a Honda shop on the way, said I could have em if I wanted them. Got back to his house, showed them to me, and they were the black Cortech Latigo RR II gloves, the exact ones that I been eyeballing for $90. What's the odds. They were too tight for him, and he tried to give them to me, but I gave him $50 for them. They fit me perfectly. Brand new pretty much, worn 1 time. I mean really, what's the odds? Lol





    And some concert pics. Smile Empty Soul. I was big into this band back in high school, apparently they aren't as popular now. There might have been 40 people in the building. Never been to a show that small, but it was a more personalized experience!

    So members of our local anti-poaching unit were on their way out to sea when they spotted this guy just chilling on the bouy. When he was questioned, he suddenly became a deaf mute, but he was clearly dropped off on the bouy by his colleagues for him to drop some Gill nets into the water.

    100's of metres of illegal nets are pulled up monthly just in our area but these damn guys are relentless!

    Poaching in South Africa has become a real problem!

    Too bad he didn’t fall in, get tangled up in his own nets, and drown......

    Finally found a video on YouTube of someone dragging knee a lot on the NC. In another language, but was cool to watch and catch some screenshots.

    Here is the link to the vid, even some mild stunting in the form of rolling burnouts and stoppies. Yes, single front disc brake on the NC is good enough to do some sweet stoppies.

    Sounded like German. Enjoyed the front wheel stop with the "under powered" single front disc

    Exactly! Need more brakes? Grab the lever harder!

    Pretty sure that bike is bone stock, even down to the oem tires too!

    Now that is a gorgeous view, thanks for sharing that with all of us Ted! I was down there in May a few years ago, simply amazing sun rises/sets in that area. :{)

    NC is still sitting in the shop stripped down waiting on the next track day in a few weeks. Let the wife ride the Grom to Cracker Barrel on some back roads, the boy rode with me. She did great. She is getting confident in handling the Grom, so when we got home she took the Bolt down the road and back for the first time. It's still a little too tall/wide for her, even with preload backed all the way off the rear shocks, but I think once she gets used to the feel of it and handling its weight, she will be able to ride it just fine. Might end up putting some aftermarket exhaust on it, so it won't be as wide on the right side, that oem can is pretty big and her leg is up against it with both feet flat on the ground.

    Anyways, she's done really good. A bit of natural talent shining through, I've been surprised.
