  1. I think we're looking to make it similar to last year: traveling down on Thursday, 4/11. Starting the drive back Sunday after the race. Of course, logistics are subject to change... Borrowing from the basic itinerary we've been using the past few years: Thurs., 4/11 - leave early to get down to Austin that night - 14-hour'ish drive. Assuming we stay in the same place, the hotel is in Buda, TX, just south of Austin (but closer to the track). Fri., 4/12 - No idea how early we'll get to the track on Friday. It's free practice sessions all day. Off the track, the plan is to hit up the vendor tents, do the demo rides, etc., etc. I think basic requirements for demo rides were helmet and shoes so pack accordingly. Sat., 4/13 - Get to the track relatively early, if there's no newbs going then we may not need to get there that early since the veterans will know the track layout and where they like to watch. Sun., 4/14 - Definitely get to the track early to make sure you can get where you want to be. Watch the races then head home, stopping for the night at a hotel at some point. Mon., 4/15 - Finish the drive home (although, last year Evan and Dave drove through the night) We've been staying at the Comfort Suites in Buda (https://www.choicehotels.com/texas/buda/comfort-suites-hotels/txc51). The place is decent enough and if you're lucky, you'll get to stalk some Moto3/Moto2 riders. Transportation: There was an unfortunate turn of events last year and transportation plans went sideways but the usual plan is to drive down, whether we procure a van to hold everyone or need to caravan. Last year I was able to fly, this year will most likely be driving/riding. Please post up if you're in... I'll try to keep this main post updated with a roster.

    Ride Saturday 11/24

    Hope you were able to get out today. I was out for a few hours but I'm battling a cold so I just putt-putted around my area and took it real easy.

    Stlar Meeting!

    I think I'll keep the show on my radar. I'll be a last minute attendee of I go though; would probably just end up driving up myself and heading back afterwards.

    New BMW S1000RR for 2019?

    2019 S1000RR details officially released - https://www.motorcyclenews.com/bike-reviews/bmw/s1000rr/2019/
  5. I'd have to look at what's being undone; if it's things like the PayPal donate button, we'd want to keep those things. It's been a couple of weeks since I looked at what's being overwritten and I'd like to understand the reasoning for the customization in the first place before summarily undoing it. That being said, I'm all about simplicity so if it make sense to let the customization die then let it die.
  6. There's an update to 4.3.6 that's been out for weeks but it involves changing some of the customization so I've been holding off on applying it until I can actually sit down and figure out what I'll need to redo. Be forewarned, I may be asking for your guidance.

    Need some new gloves

    Need some new gloves

    I know I'm a bit late to this party, but I've had these for going on my 3rd (I think) cold season - Knox Zero 2 gloves I think they tick all your checkboxes; have the same palm sliders as the regular Knox gloves. Not as high-end as the Handroids by any means but as for operating temps, they are definitely good down to the 50's. I ride my bike in the winter when the lows are hovering at, or slightly below, freezing. These won't keep your hands warm at those temps (not even with my heated grips), but once I get into the upper 30's/low 40's, they work well enough I only need the heated grips at highway speeds. I'll actually be busting them out tomorrow for my commute to work - low's are supposed to be low 40's overnight tonight.

    @ZRX4ME... Found a new kind of Mazda when I was taking a tour of the Winchester House out in San Jose.

    Yeah, but if I recall hearing, you can customize it pretty heavily, similar to the Pi, and run other distros. (I'm not nerdy with Pi's so my lingo may not be entirely accurate) Although, I believe it will only feed data into Microsoft's Azure IoT Central portal which is fine since you can have up to 5 IoT devices for free. I have a lot of reading up to do.
