23 Aug 2010 - ACD Server Crashed

The server hosting ACD crashed last night. The server itself was fixed rather quickly, however it corrupted one of the tables in the database. I have repaired it, but there may be some late posts missing. The last post I see was at 18:56 ET. If you have a post that is missing or made a post after 18:56, please re-post it.

The site could most likely have been up last night, but I wasn't sure how to repair it and it took me a while and a lot of googling to figure it out this morning. I've never claimed to be a DBA, but I do the best I can without involving third parties anymore.

My sincere apologies for the inconvenience.

Regards
Bill

I woke up this morning with a mission. My mission was to finally lay my eyes on the Hyosung ST7 courtesy of Pat Yearick and MPG Motors in Sellersville, PA. From the obstacles that seemed to get in the way this morning, I wasn't sure I would get there at all, but I overcame all and finally got to see one in person....and more.

I finally arrived at MPG Motors about a half hour before noon. As I pulled up, I saw the ST7 sitting pretty as you please out front. It was immediately distinguishable from the GV250's by it's tank mounted speedometer and it's longer length. I hurriedly parked the truck and went inside.

Pat Yearick, the proprietor of MPG Motors, and a long time friend, was busy with customers but took a moment to say hello. Bill, his employee, asked if he could help me. Pat, at that point, told the store about AlternativeCruisers.com which, well, made me feel really special.

Bill struck up a conversation with me while I waited to talk to Pat. We discussed, at first, the GV650 on the showroom floor along with the GT650 that was sitting not far away. Then we walked outside to look over the ST7.

The ST7 was red and sitting there like a caged tiger. You could tell from the lines on the bike that it was meant to go, not site. From the swept fenders, to the wide tank, to the big tires, the ST7 was chomping at the bit without even the motor running.

I sat on the bike and was immediately rewarded by a feeling of rightness that I've never quite felt on a Hyosung. Don't get me wrong, I loved my GV250 and, at the time, it felt right as right could be, but the ST7 just felt more so if you know what I mean. The seat, while firm, was comfortable and the handle bars were a fairly easy reach.

If I had to nit pick anything with the ST7 though, it would be the pegs. In the normal forward position, it was a bit of a stretch for my short stature. And while I do know they can be adjusted backwards just like on the GV650 Avitar, it would be nice if, for once, at standard position I could reach them with a bent leg.

Normally I would nit pick about a tank mounted speedometer as well but, surprisingly, the ST7's placement of the speedometer didn't seem to be an issue for me. Looking down to see your speed and taking your eyes off the road is never a good idea, but the ST7's speedometer is nice and big and the numbers are large so seeing them and getting your speed is a single very quick glance is eas...
