@koth442 - You're in your Titanium period of life aren't you!  AKA your 20s. 😜

Nice pic BTW. 👍

Correct and thank you!

Fun fact, one of the guys I started riding track with was in his 60's when he started. I bet you he's as quick, if not quicker than I am. Age don't matter much!

Which of these, if any, is the ESR you use?

 Thx

Not sure I understand the question.   I use an iPhone X, so downloaded from the Apple App Store.   I have a few friends that use the Android version, so I know that is available as well. 

Search ‘EatSleepRIDE Motorcycle GPS’ and it should show up for you.   Free app, although there are some premium features (most intriguing is automated crash detection and emergency notification) you can opt to pay for if you choose.

Thanks much, I'll give a shot!

Let us know what you think.  The phone needs to be solidly mounted & level to get accurate readings... carrying it in a jacket pocket adds way too much variability into the data recording.   

I typically record the ride with ESR running in the background, and have Waze up as the active application.  I’ve had no issues running the two applications simultaneously.

Any more than this and you go to the nearby bush. Center stand is raised, the next thing to scrape on tarmac is side stand. 20190621_064926.thumb.jpg.f5b0c926d00dcf07fc8bb62760ba7e37.jpg

Whose / Which rubber are you running?

These particularly one's are Mitas Sport Force +. I'm currently running Michelin Power RS+.

Nice doughnuts but it's so flat around here most sport oriented street riders go for sport touring rubber like RS3, PR4/5, etc or we'd be changing rubber due to flat spoting twice or more a season, sigh...

Hi @krucymucy - I’m curious if there is a reason you didn’t remove the factory peg feelers?  Mine came off the same day I bought the bike...  they’re way too long for spirited riding.   I also trimmed the rubber bump stop to raise the center stand a bit,  and I’m good with ground clearance about 99% of the time.   

Glad to see you enjoying the bike!

@texscottyd I don't know. I guess I left them on just to have a felling about lean angle when they start scraping telling it's time to chill a bit. They're almost gone now.

As for center stand I removed an original rubber and replaced it with very thin one. Just enough that it sits on rubber.

I loaded and used ESL the other day and it was a waste of time. Tracked well, no lean angles and said I had done over 1k klm's when I did 440 klm.

Also said there was no such bike as a Tracer and wouldn't register a bike.
