No doubt, I will like it but I wouldn't if I were you, it might not come back! My friend Bob goes up every 3 weeks or so, going to try and go up with him when I have a break inn obligations.


I found I have one video clip from the weekend worth anything, I guess when I thought it was off, it was on and visa versa so there is a bunch of 2 track and only one section of single, luckily, it was on the A loop. If it ever loads, I'll post it. There was one video where I cam up on a bike on it's side and 2 guys nealed over it with a helmet laying by the back tire, I thought someone was pinned under it and they were trying to extract him. Luckily they were just repairing it.

BTW, GCMK - No TTRU sticker on the 640 but I did come across a group of riders in need of help, seems of 5 guys no one had a master link, I had 4 with me, one fit, he was happy, his day was saved.

Nice! The TTRU would be proud.

Thought it was a couple of slow beamer riders that helped folks out? It grew like the W.E.C.S.O.G. diploma.

Sure do appreciate the offers but I think I'm going to head that way Friday with a trailer. My wife's family is from the Youngstown area so I'm going to drop her off there on the way and stop back and watch my nephew play in a high school football game.

I mean since I cant get Devil Dog off his lazy ass to pick it up for me

Thanks again.

Went for a little ride with a guy not on the forum (yet) and Herewego (Mike) today. The learning curve was steep. That guy was on a 1200GSA w/Tourances, Herewego on his 990 Dakar with Mefos and myself on the Tractor with cheap ass 244s. Lessons learned:
1. Herewego is a cool dude.
2. He may not want to ride with me again.
3. On McCain Hill Rd in Washington Co, there is not a good line on the downhill side of the rocky stairsteps.
4. Three guys can drag a KLR back up on to the road.
5. It sucks when the gravel/rocks win.
6. Those fancy riding pants are looking much better than an old pair of jeans (and my knee).
7. A 1200GSA with Tourances may struggle to go where a KLR with 244s does.
8. 1200GS's are f'ing heavy.
9. Panniers sure make a bike wide.

All in all I had a good time, so did 1200GSA guy even though he was over his bike's head a couple of times. It was a pleasure to ride with Herewego (Mike), he's a great guy.
And pics of aforementioned knee after 4 1/2 hrs of riding on it and wrestling a BMW



A little tape will fix most anything, right?

Gravel roads between SR 26 and the river, (SR 7) can be very scary.

Gotta check out McCain Hill Rd now after seeing that picture.

Riding with Herewego is always fun, even when things don't go as planned.

So, how bad is the wound on the knee?
