BTW, your bike stalled today while in the air over a large table, thought it would bump start on impact, it didn't, Hit the face of the step up sideways, bump started then sent me up the face, came down the side of the jump just in time to miss the steel tank used as a tunnel.

You need to come back and tame that bitch down, or at least run it over

You boys missed a good time! We did two great days of riding with only a couple drops of rain Saturday on the way back to the room. It rained overnight which was nice cause it knocked down the dust. It was not nearly as busy as I was lead to believe it would be for a holiday weekend. Hope you all had a good time sitting at the house....

If you don't know Peggy Sue's then you don't know dual sport destinations in the area.

I've never stopped in New Castle before other than for the Thursday Special at the Fox Hole on Wednesday night.

I'll guess that I was distracted when leaving and missed Peggy Sue's.
I'll give Peggy Sue a try.

Yikes!!!! I'm sorry my KTM tried to kill you today! I'm glad you're saving her for me - KTM just come out with a lowering kit.

Trust me, I'd do about anything to come back and ride. I'm worried I won't get as much off road work in. I'm hoping TX is better. Oklahoma is under a state wide burn ban and with that is no off road riding.

Being far away just gives us an excuse to meet up and ride in different states.

Damn. That one was on my list for the summer. I'll be in Reno.

I decided today as I laid in Honey Creek that it was probably the substitute beach ride. Silty creek water surrounded by minnows and some relative of the bluegill is going to have to be "close enough" for 2012.

I do have my trusty shotgun in my room, just in case. I need a scabbard for my 230....
ONLY if they tell you to watch the place for them while they're out. That was one of the main points in Joe horn's defense.

We'll need pics of the homestead if it works out. Sounds amazing.

kit - not really - assuming it is a PDS rear.

I'm sure there are others doing lowering as well. (like enduro engineering)

I tried looking up Javier at Trailtricks, but his site is down, not sure about him or his business, but he used to have a lot of folks who loved his work.

an X bushing will give you 7/8" - probably not enough though

Got a question for you guys. This weekend we are going to be riding to Ellisonville, its in the Wayne forest at the southern tip. Coming from zanesville area. Any things I need to see, roads I need to ride, that kind of stuff? I'll be on my xrr, one guy on a klr, and one 1200gs, so tight trails and highway are both out.

None of us actually ride, we just sit at home. Maybe you should ask Landon.
