I think there's something in the Oklahoma water at the Reynard Training Complex that improves the whip-ability of guys. Some of the best come out of Robbie's OK facility: - Bogle - Canard - Forkner - Jimmy Albertson - Brett Que - Etc.

I've been offered a job which would require moving to Chattanooga. I'm hoping ya'll could tell me what the moto scene is like as far as tracks go. I'm a professional practice rider... Thx. Rick

I'd like to spend $400,000 or so max as I'd be able to pay cash. I'd be willing to go above that for the right property but would rather not take on debt. The address of the Amazon fulfillment center is: 8000 Tuckaseegee Rd, Charlotte, NC 28214

Thank you. I was aware the Amazon location was west of the airport but appreciate your clarification. I was hoping being off 485 would benefit commute time. Out by the lake would be nice as I own a boat and my wife and I are avid water skiers.

I greatly appreciate you taking the time to help me out. SC sounds like a good option. My wife and I are tired of living in a subdivision environment and prefer to make our next home in a somewhat rural/county setting. We've lived in subdivisions for ... more »

Temp and humidity in Oklahoma are relatively high. We ride in the high 90's to low 100's with average humidity of low 80%. I ride 4 - 30 minute moto's every ride day, year round on a pro level practice track (i.e., Reynard's). Granted, I'm a 61 year ... more »

What specific town/city in SC? I'd like to keep my commute to around 20 minutes.

I've spent MANY, MANY dozens of hours researching the company and the position. I would be the executive level, Sr. Site Workplace Health & Safety Manager for the fulfillment center. I've been in the oil and gas industry for 35 years and I'm looking ... more »

Reply to Rockstar Husky chains? 7/18/2021 10:02 PM

Interesting as I've used RK ringed chains for well over 10 years on 450's. I switched about a year ago as the longevity of the RK had gone down considerably. Something changed as the top and bottom of the chains were wearing flat quickly from the contact ... more »

Polisport makes the OEM plastic for all the Austrian brands as well as Honda and Yamaha. I've always been happy with the quality and durability as well as fitment. It's also the least expensive aftermarket brand. I recommend Polisport.

I appreciate all the input provided and following up on all suggestions in my research. Your comment on congestion is interesting. Are you refering to traffic? Everything I read says traffic is not bad at all compared to most metropolitan areas? Maybe ... more »

My kids have graduated college so schools don't matter. Except for when I go to sell it and someone with kids wants good schools... Just my wife and I.

Thanks. Let me see how this plays out with Amazon. She would prove very helpful! I'll hit you up with a PM if it firms up. Thx. Rick

I'm looking for advice on where to live in Charlotte as well. The job is at the Amazon CLT4 Fulfillment Center located at: 8000 Tuckaseegee Rd, Charlotte, NC 28214 I'd be interested in buying a single family hopefully "somewhat close"to the Amazon location ... more »

I was hoping for some insight into the moto scene for a vet rider in the Charlotte area. I have a job opportunity to possible move there. I doubt it would be as good as what I currently have as I get to ride at Reynard's here in Oklahoma pretty much ... more »

Reply to Vintage Alpinestars boots? anyone know the value or are they trash? 7/14/2021 12:09 PM

After you get them standing on their own it's well worth the few bucks it costs to take them to a professional cobbler and let him shine them up for you. I know for a fact they're highly desirable by the vintage racing guys on eBay.

Reply to Does Forkner need a change or is his star fading? 7/14/2021 12:02 PM

Pops is too busy adding 2' of sand to most of Robbie's outdoor track. I was pissed as I'm an old, slow vet and he/they have made the track very difficult for the average guy like me. I gave him shit about it and jokingly told him I was suspending his ... more »

Reply to Vintage Alpinestars boots? anyone know the value or are they trash? 7/13/2021 6:19 PM

They're worth a bunch. I sold a pair in similar condition but shined up on eBay for $400 to a guy in Japan. Vintage racers love them to complete their vintage gear ensemble.
