Well the weather has taken a bit of a turn for the worse so stay tuned for a final decision for postponement and a rain date. :truce:

On the bright side the Spring Fling is a week away! :motonoises: :great: ;)

Oh man Terry,  tossing in the flag, when there's a full day of sunny weather following midnight, followed by not a cloud in the sky.. :truce: :truce:

Its a COG ride... rain, should be no option, as long as there is clear skies projected...
Hope all turns out good... I can't see any rain in your map after 4 am in the morn..like 10 hours from now..

Has anyone ever cancelled "spring fling" because of a little rain, or a lotta rain for that matter?  Hahahahahahah, its guranteed to rain for certain, never seen one not have rain... :rotflmao: :rotflmao: :rotflmao:

Ride safe,

As of now we are still a go for tomorrow.  My bike is actually clean right now and with the fling coming I’d like to keep it that way!  Lol.  So I will still attend but I might be on four wheels.  Let the abuse begin!!!  I’ll post if there is a change in plan.

It only gets so dirty Terry. The first layer keeps the second and third from accually touching the paint.

Thanks Ivan
Good meeting you today.

and yeah,
I noticed the difference as soon as I left your parking lot.

throttle chop is gone, much smoother with throttle inputs...

found myself passing in high gear when I would usually downshift....

Anyone on the fence about the flash and who/what/where...

All I can say is Ivan is the real deal...   I've own a few bikes in the past with Ivans airbox kits and even had a set of his pod needles....   Always high quality products and satisfaction guaranteed.

This recent flash is another awesome mod. 

One walk into his back room and you can tell...  a very well organized professional shop.

Just got back to the barn after a pleasant meet and greet!  The weather took it's toll on turnout but for the hardy folks who made the trip it  was a good time.  Seven satisfied customers took advantage of the special price and left with smiles.  I want to thank Ivan again  for hosting and after seeing his shop I kinda regret not going to the source when I had his jet kit installed and dyno tuned.  Hey maybe I can pop in for a retune sometime!  Wait...daughter starts college next year...might have to go to the back burner!  Like others have said Ivan knows his stuff and answered any and all questions anyone had. 

Next stop the fling!  See you there!

We had a great time! Followed Steve above posted limit to Congers. It only rained a bit, a little harder crossing the Hudson. Got to Ivan's shop, had a test ECU installed within 20 minutes. Put the girl on the back and took off. Didn't notice much of a difference. Came back and before I could say anything, Ivan said, "Don't get off the bike" He adjusted the idle up 2 hundred RPMs, told me to go ride some more. It was a day and night difference. All shifts were very smooth, much better than ECO mode. Decel was more behaved. Rode with passenger and solo. Pillion said bike was smoother and had less vibrations. I noticed an improved response. Bought the flash. Thanks to Steve for directions home. 301 was perfect test track for the flash. Considerably less vibrations, bike purrs at nearly 40000 miles. And thank you Ivan for making my bike better.  :great:

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Just another thank you to Ivan, he offers a great product/service and the open house was a fun treat! now if only I didn't have 5 out of 7 hours of cold rain to get home it would have been much better but those trips make great memories!
