That said, congratulations and welcome to the forum, look forward to seeing you in DV in March.
Thanks! I can hardly wait for a Death Valley spring!
I was wearing my street "cruiser" boots - they're really not even good enough for street riding. I have a pair of Alpinestar Tech 2s on my shopping list (and a pair of Klim pants and a Motoport jacket and Happy Trails cases for my xt250 and new gloves.....and I'm pretty sure there's something else I want/need) :loll Just need to find a bank to rob!
