That would be pretty damn sweet. It's 3 1/2 hours away though.

Have room for one more ?

Sorry guys I forgot to check back in on this thread. I have no idea where exactly I'll be up in the Catskills, I've been to NYST once so I'm just going to head that direction and then start taking side roads till I get lost. PM me and I'll give you my cell number.


If you want the breakdown on fuel management systems, take some time to read this thread.
For a walk through on pulling FI Codes, check out this thread.
Questions about Flashed ECUs vs. Fuel Controllers? Try this one.
Got a Z-Fi TC System? Read This to get an idea of how it works.
Here's a link to some Kawasaki Service Manuals that I've got hosted for everyone's use.
And please check out my blog for more sage advice and technical ramblings.
Some basics about braking here.

Has anybody been to the bear mountain area recently?
How are the roads looking? RT218, Seven lakes and such?

I've heard a few bad things from people a month or so ago, just wondering if anything changed.

Rt218 is super bumpy. Was cool to ride and cruise through though. Seven lakes and bear mtn were flawless last couple times I went in the last few weeks.

I was up there today. I chickened out of my trip to the Catskills.

Bear mtn gets pretty busy around this time of year (and october). I'd suggest getting up there early in the day. If you can, cross the bear mtn bridge and stay right once you cross. You won't be disappointing Again though, try and get there early.

I checked out rt218 earlier this season and it was closed right after the west point gates. It might be opened by now though.

Oh yeah, and be careful for gravel. <<I mean always but today there seemed to be a bit more.

RT218 is probably the section there. I used to go there a lot more often with my car with a few buddies but we noticed roads have deteriorated.

Gravel is what bugs me the most....
