  1. Happy Birthday!

  2. Hello all! The 1st Stlar meeting of 2020 will be at the Culpeppers St Charles location. 6:30 pm to whenever. Hope to see you there!
  3. Yes indeed, was the best Chicago Bike Show yet for me. New Fieldsheer heated gloves and vest with self-contained Li batteries, was able to score a 2020 Suzuki Accessories Catalog(put away for someone else who didn’t pick it up), and lots of Suzuki mechanical information from the factory district service manager. Now thinking about an electric-assist bicycle for Lisa after seeing them in action. The deep metalflake flake emerald green Kawasaki 900rs would be mine if I decide to part with my Honda 750 and Kawasaki ZRX1100. Many thanks to Khaled, Steven, Galen, and JJ for making this trip so enjoyable!
  4. Don’t ever worry about me being up. It’s me getting to bed the night before that’s usually the issue. What I’ve found through the years is that it’s best to leave the St Louis area between 6:30 am and 7:00 am Friday Feb 7. We get to the hotel mid to late afternoon, settle in to the rooms, then the hotel shuttles us to the Stephens Convention Center. Less crowd to deal with, we can easily see most everything before the show closes for the night, then get shuttled back to the hotel. Good restaurant on the hotel parking lot. GREAT restaurant just 3 streets up from the convention center, the hotel shuttled us there(Ram Sports Bar) as well. Then back to the hotel. The next morning back to the show for final shopping/viewing then shuttled back to the hotel to leave for home 12-1 pm Feb 8. The show gets packed after noon, so both days we shouldn’t have to fight the hordes to do and see what we want. I’ve been going to the Chicago show every year since the last St Louis show in ‘03(I think). The last 3 years I did the late Friday/early Saturday regimen and it was easy and seamless.
  5. Wewll Dave, I really didnt spray it on the chain. I merely soaked a shop towel in it and ran the chain through the towel several times. Since this was my 1st time with the Chain Saver I spent an inordinate amount of time running towels through the links, both sides, you name it so I could fairly judge how the Saver was doing without all the accumulated crap that was on it. So far, so good. We shall see!
  6. Thanks for posting this, Ed. Ive used PJ1, early on, then BelRay SuperClean for years. These days Ive been using DuPont Chain Saver w/Teflon. Along with Dupont Chain Cleaner. Both about $7 /11oz. can at Walmart.. Not enough miles on the Dupont lube to make a judgement, but for sure is less messy than the SuperClean. The Chain Cleaner is excellent, works well. The Dupont stuff was recommended in a poll on the Vstrom website, Stromtroopers.com, and it is the most widely used chain lube in the poll. I thought I'd give it a try.
  7. Thank you all for your replies!

  10. Many thanks to all who attended this evening's Stlar meeting, in addition to all the Stlar members. This was the last Stlar meeting for 2018 The Culpepper's location has been secured for 2019, and our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, March 5th. On a personal note, I especially enjoyed the Stlar rides I've attended. I'm riding more now than ever, going to places I havent been to before, and getting the use out of my motorcycle I previously didnt make time for. The Stlar rides have contributed to all of that.

  11. Hello all! The next Stlar meeting is Tuesday, Nov.6 @ 6:30, Culpepper's St. Charles. I hope to see you there!
  12. Outstanding day!!! Good roads, route, food, weather...and great people to ride with! Thanks Ed!--I now have a new BBQ place when I'm out in that area.
  13. Actually, I'd like something a little more centrally located, a little further southeast of St. Charles. Scout-a-mania commences tomorrow.
