If you look up Hossock Suspension, you'll see many of the designs now coming into fruition. 

When did BMW do away with their single lever front suspension?
Well, let's not nit pick but......Yamaha is the only one I know with a "single lever". BMW had a "tele lever" front suspension that had telescopic fork tubes and a coil over shock arrangement.  just saying'  :^)   TM

I've had pretty good luck with my 10S.  Most of the bells and whistles as the 20S, but much cheaper.  Biggest problem is that often when the GPS voice comes in, I lose the communications, and have to power off and back up to restore comms.  The other problem I've had is that I bought the GoPro adapter for it, but have yet to get conversation audio to the GoPro.

I had chances to talk with Ann through our mutual connection to the EC, but we found ourselves riding together at TriSTAR in 2016. We wandered most of the day on roads that were parallel, sort of, to one of the routes, but often found ourselves having to turn around at dead ends or places where we finally decided were getting too far off the beaten path. We stopped once and had a wonderfully relaxing chat next to a roaring river somewhere in NE North Carolina. She was a delightful person, and I'm blessed to have been able to spend a day with her.

Great news to hear Mr. Brick. But when I hear "Back in the saddle again" it's Aerosmith. Rich, you must be getting old. LOL (hey, I resemble my own remark)
Yep on keeping' on Brick!
Too funny Tom. Yes, but I thought that version was more fitting to Brick and his location.
If Tom only knew what a hard core rocker you are. I thought it made sense, and did not recall the Aerosmith song when I saw your response. I've already asked Steven Tyler for forgiveness. ;)

Safety Strategies / Re: The Sport Riding Flow Chart

I lead a lot lately and the one time I'm inclined to pull over and look for the group (be that 1 or several riders) is when I can usually see others behind me, but suddenly nobody is there. Unless I just passed somebody and they didn't get around yet (I usually try to wait for others behind me to get around regroup), they should be there and disappearing is bad.

If you get spread out quite a bit, and are riding in a place with other riders, its also a good idea to be sure the next rider in your group is the one you see, not just another rider possibly with similar bike/gear. As Doug said, "May be a good time to regroup."  And sometimes you just need to do that, to avoid becoming more spread out.

Good tips and flow chart. Riding your own is always the best option. I don't like riding in groups much larger than 5 or 6. After that, it gets harder to keep track of all riders. But, except for attending MSTA events, most of my riding is solo. But I do enjoy group riding and the camaraderie and tire kicking that goes along with it.  :trink39: 8)
