    I live in PA now but originally from NJ - grew up in Manchester/Ocean County. Still have lots of family and friends in the area so I'm out there fairly often.

    Summit looks fun, and right around the corner from you can't beat that!

    If you are on the western side of the state check out Pittsburgh International Raceway. Great venue and they run motoamerica there now after they added on several years back.

    Unintentionally set this up while cleaning up the garage. Realized when I went to push everything back in.

    I just got my knockoff knockoff chairs. The bungees inside the poles needed a little trimming, but they didn't break when i sat down, so theres a plus. Going to strap one to the bike.

    Gotta dig out my rok straps from a box and use them again.

    I had it delivered to my house :anonymous:

    No MSF until this weekend or License until I can get all the paperwork done at the DMV next week.

    Plus I bought it then immediately drove home in rush hour traffic. Not tryin to die on day 1.

    But yeah, the look is pretty accurate. :rofl:

    Dirtbikes once or twice trying to impress a cute girl (then made a fool of myself cuz her sponsored brother handed me his race 450 and just let me whiskey throttle myself into the dirt)

    But I ride mountain bikes enough to understand the slow speed counterbalance and drag the rear brake, press same side, and stay off the front brake in the corners, etc.

    Best friend is a paramedic and dustoff flight medic and am going out with a nurse that's a friend of his nurse GF...so I got that going for me at the very least if things go pear shaped.

    He knows to thermite my computer if it all goes bad, and we have a mutual agreement to show up to each others funeral dressed in a Grim Reaper costume when the day comes. :rofl:

    So I got these with my soft panniers, and I want to make a recommendation. They are a pretty good idea. And they are a little pain to install, but that just means that they wont come off. And in addition, they are secured at the top with a "lock" or grip to further ensure that they dont come off. They work by sliding between your molle attachment points on your accessory and pannier bag

    They get my vote!

    just like @MagtechPA get out and practice. Use the bike for everything. Soon you will be on your 18th bike in 12 years. (I dont know if thats my count, but its probably close)
