We probably did. We rode that trail that you took us on this spring, the one off of 541 with all the trails shooting off. It was a lot easier now, the ATV's and trucks have it hogged out, just super greasy and with some DEEEP holes....

Nice Katoom Dox! Welcome to the pumpkin gang.

Everyone's either on a WRR or an RFS KTM. It's like West Side Story all of a sudden, there's gonna be a feud. "When you're a Jet you're a Jet all the way". Everybody sing along...

Tortoise and the hare racing. We slow WRs will be steady, but pass the orange bikes when they stop mid-ride for oil changes and valve adjustments (at least that's the story in the Thumpers forum).

Good looking bike Dox. That come from WV?

Very tempting, but the baby bike is the one that needs to go. The TA has been demoted to street bike since the only plastic available for it is already broken and the discontinued parts list grows longer every month.

Kate Beckinsale is probably a lot higher maintenance than Kathy Bates, but she's worth it. That's the other angle.

Doing a big bike / Adventure ride this Thursday with a couple friends (S10, T800, KLR) if anyone is interested. Not 100% sure of the direction/time/mileage, but south-southeast is a strong possibility. Weather's supposed to be excellent.

I think the curse got me from just reading about the shit. The wifes car broke on our way to Columbus yester. Yay. Good news is that the water pump turned out to be good afterall and the new one I put on was just for shits and giggles. Apparently it is the lower intake gasket that is leaking and just caused enough mess that it looked like it was the water pump. I have zero patience working on my own stuff and I missed spending the day with the wifey to celebrate our anniversary and I had planned on riding over last night to Sparksters for a bonfire. Soooo I called off today to either spend the day fixing it or saying screw it and trade it in. Either way it is a pain in the ass, one just lasting 48 months longer......

Might consider a seat trade, though this one is pretty good so far.

It's way above my level, but it's a blast to ride. Spending a lot of hours practicing single skills and just generally getting comfortable with how it (and I) react.

(wheelie action shot for Whitey)

I needed that today! Damn you have lost some weight too! Good for you Dox!

Hard to disagree with logic like that, but at this point I'd consider the KLR more Kathy Bates and the WR closer to Rachel Ray. Cute, peppy personality, a little extra meat on the bones, can cook when needed.

No need for apology - just giving you jealous crap for living in the middle of enduro heaven.
