Sunday Ride: BMW Demo Days / 1st Sunday Street Ride Report
The BMW Demo Days was a great success with awesome weather and even more awesome customers coming to test ride their next machine or dream machine from BMW Motorrad. We smoked our famous BBW with a Cinco De Mayo twist that everyone loved, thanks Jeff & Irene. Here are some moments you missed.

Our Sunday Ride was great with a mixture of machines showing up and some traveling a good distance to come share the experience with us. We had a smaller turn out which was great as I got to try an experience I’ve been wanting to do for a while. We first headed out over 311 to Swinging Bridge for a great breakfast and then cut back up 311 to the Gliderport where we had a first-hand experience with their pilots going over the toys and letting us take pictures of the machines in front of them. We didn’t get to go up this time due to high winds, but, we will the next chance we get this year!!! Then we booked it back up 42 for some twisty fun and some testing of our new camera equipment at, uhh different speeds, hahaha. That led us into Blacksburg where the hustle and bustle of the end of a semester was in progress and we rode around campus checking out the scenery.
What a great time. We all took the back way home, avoiding all interstates, and found ourselves happily back at the Frontline Facility ready for fun pics, we the three that didn’t cut off and go home hen we passed their neighborhood.

With weather permitting, there will be continued support of a Sunday Adventure Ride the first Sunday of every month; and a Sunday Street Ride the third Sunday of every month. Variations may happen due to Track Days and the way the calendar falls on longer months to accommodate other fun opportunities with us here at Frontline Eurosports.

Nate’s Bike Review: 2018 Ducati Monster 797 Plus

I have been demoing a lot of Ducati’s this past month and have
been finding myself stuck on the Monster line for my commuting and ripping around the back roads. I have the luxury of riding a 212 hp, sub 400 lbs Panigale 1299S, for a short period of time and found it too fast for my personal lack of throttle discipline on the street and a bit too aggressive for my bad neck. It was roomier than previous year model supersport line motorcycles from Ducati which was appreciated. I really wanted to take it to the track for California Superbike School but the machine was sold just two weeks before the scheduled school day, what a shame, but I atleast got to ride
along a V4s that I sold a great customer and was able to admire
from alongside.

Back to the Monster line, I enjoyed many miles on the Monster 1200 “R” on my Sunday ride, reviewed above with pics, and around town for a full week. I comfortably ran my around town appointments and was able to shake off the long work days in peak season around the countryside mountains with plenty of torque and comfort. There was plenty of safety to keep myself in line if I ever was to need to utilize it, which thank God I didn’t. The suspension, Ohlins, and brakes, Brembo, are amazing and added to a high level of  confidence to the already firmly planted Pirelli tires. The front end did feel a bit light for my flavor of taste but made for a less fatiguing ride and only leaving me with a little hesitation on the confidence in the high-speed corners I tackled. I had to get a little long winded on the 1200R description so I could gve you an example of what I am comparing the 797 to. I didn’t have a lot of complaints at all, hell, I still haven’t taken the bike back to the shop except on my daily commutes and this one will be another machine they have to pry from my hands to get back, hahaha. The first thing I noticed was the super high level of comfort and ease of use of the two valve, air/oil cooled, powerplant of the little 803cc Monster. Just like the rest of the Scrambler line she is smooth at the bottom end with minimal lurchiness like the larger 4 valve, water-cooled machines that need to be up around 4K rpm to really be in the smooth sweet spot. The 1200R probably had the smoothest bottom end of the water-cooled models due to the huge motor with extra goodies here and there over the rest of the line. The machine is light and flickable as all get out but the less expensive suspension that is nonadjustable on the 797 could be a little less fidgety. Hopefully, with more miles and time in the saddle I can get more dexterity in the springs and it’ll feel a little less jumpy on the rough mountain back roads. Around town, fantastic, and is the perfect commuter that will keep you smiling and never running out of front rubber, if you know what I mean, wink wink. For the price point, there isn’t another model in the Monster or Scrambler line that I would ask for, it has switchable ABS but no other safety package feature like ride modes or traction control. I like more simplistic and basic motorcycles anyhow, and especially in this power range. If you haven’t taken the time to come in and check it our in person, even take it for a spin…I highly encourage you to do so as it will make an awesome addition to your arsenal or a perfect first sport bike for the newer riders out there we need to keep adding to our two-wheeled community.

Get Signed up for California Superbike School in August

California Superbike School May 7th at VIR North was another amazing experience, and this time with way better weather…perfect weather. I had two other Frontline Family members there with me enjoying higher motorcycle education. Field J. on his new V4s and Rick C. on a School S1000RR even though he owns a 1299s. My level 2 class had Dylan Code as the instructor and I got to work with Big Mike on the track…both great guys. Ran into my coach from last year, Buffy, and he remembered me like it was last week we were on the track together. That is what I really appreciate about this organization. The most valuable time I got was with James on the lean bike where we worked on tweaking my body position for my size. I’ve been to many schools with many instructors and try to follow exactly what they say but my shorter size warranted a little tweak to their  techniques to put me in what might be the best body positioning yet. I could feel the results with less fatiguing, just need to change my vision now that things change from this new angle!!!
