My old (pre-2002) SC title only uses 8, and the folks at the DMV in Kanawha City actually had a s(t)upervisor come out of whatever hole-of-an-office they have to accuse me of getting a duplicate title, stealing another bike and trying to register this one here. Idiot. No, I've only had the bike for 21yrs now, ya piece-o-shite. Lord knows there's a big profit to be made selling old ugly (to most) dual sport bikes, especially over state lines. I could probably get $1,000 if I found a drunk sailor... yeah, you're on to something- we oughta make you a Medicare fraud investigator...

They also questioned the mileage on it "you had 132,000 on it when you registered it in SC in 2001, that's a lot of miles for a motorcycle..." Get me the hell outa here before I blow a gasket...

I had my SC DMV programmer buddy look into it and he discovered the leading zero problem.

Love our state, but I guess all DMV's are the same, everywhere...

riding the mountains behind the shop after work tonight... come on folks!
What time are you riding? I could probably make it.

Wanna do some road work on the 950, but a short run up Campbells is possible... only problem is 10am start puts you back to the trucks in afternoon, and I want to make it to Marlinton or maybe Davis & Thomas & visit the microbreweries there

We have enjoyed some after-work rides here on AOMC property... plenty to do here, and we can always go south across the road to a big area between Dunbar & Cross Lanes

So you're up for an early ride from AOMC on Sunday?
I'd be down for some of that!

I'm riding tomorrow. Most likely doing road on the GS, probably between 200-400mi. I may try to snag a tag and/or hit rella's. I'm looking to get an early start. If anyone is game lemme know.


Also for those in the market for a good reasonably priced DS bike, here's one I stumbled across that looked well cared for.

Poop, I was just getting ready to PM you. I was gonna say I'm also game for big dirty bikes too. I got a battery on the RXC last week. As for the XT....I always liked them back in the day. Very reliable old mounts in my opinion.

I'm sure there will be better photos but today a huge step was taken by an original wv hellbilly member :) ended up with great weather, and the bride was absolutely beautiful!

Congrats to onaXR, we all should wish he and the now Mrs. OnaXR the absolute best wishes and future!

Ride fast!
