Dayam!! That looks good. Not sure the good doctor would have approved of the spices at this point. I'm doing my best to be a good patient.

Well, while ya'll were piggin' out, I spent a little time in my cold garage fitting up a bipod mount to my M1A.



So looking forward to getting back out to Black Creek to give it a try.

The RTE food was great. Guy, you could have had one of the milkshakes...the chocolate malt was worth the ride over. Hope you can join us soon. Rick and Jeremy, enjoyed the meal and especially the company. Cheers till next time!

Guy, Nice setup with the M1A.

Amazed you even finished half your sandwich after downing that shake. Glad we were able to meet up for lunch. I was too busy eating to take a picture of my food.

Makes me want to grow sideburns, wear a cheesy mustache, and don some shiny polyester clothes. Just .... bleeh. Aluminum panniers would look silly, but I'm hoping one of you Connie Types can point me in a direction for something a tad more modern looking than those atrocities.

You may now resume your discussions on the finer points of dirt and teeth. :-)
rick, you should visit the COG site, http://forum.cog-online.org/index.php
and the "original" ZG site (was the former COG site...) http://www.zggtr.org/index.php
Our great pal Gary Murphy of the famed "Murph's kits" and benevolent supplier of cool parts for fair prices, has a complete setup based on the Shad bag line...
here
http://www.murphskits.com/catalog/pr...roducts_id=141

Gary is a longtime friend of both Guy Young and myself, super good people...
Believe me though, the original Conni bags are very utilitarian, and the bags on my C14 Conni are worthless for anything "square or rectangular" to fit inside....you pay for the loss of utility with "Style"...
I rather have utility....

as for the cheesy mustache...


"They look like throwbacks from 1978. Makes me want to grow sideburns, wear a cheesy mustache, and don some shiny polyester clothes"

remember this guy?

OK, I did it ...

... and now I've got to pay for it.

http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...8#post20527378

Yes, the mighty 1100 is up for sale. Spread the word far and wide. With the profits, I'll be able to add a third bike to the stable, to sit alongside the Connie and the Enfield. Hmmm, I wonder ....

Ya'll crack me up. You're worse than some noob Ameritrade Trader with lots of disposible income.and a hard-on.

Ya'll have fun.

I want to get a GS and hack it. However I'll need to get rid of my KLRs first.... I'm pretty sure that I will eventually be strictly three wheeling it at some future point.

Motorcycles are no different than wine, meals and women...The good ones are expensive and you don't need them, but you should sample as many different flavors as possible before you die.
