Yeah I hear you. I am working on a "better for the road" DS bike. I love my KLX for the dirt and short trips on the slab but the 2 hour blast to the other coast kills me and the bike doesn't seem to like it much especially now that it has over 40k on the clock. I would probably do more street riding if the speed limit was 45mph but @ 65mph on the highway I feel like I'm beating the piss out of the old girl.

Alex, I was thinking about leaving early enough to meet them over in Clewiston at 10AM. Tommy would have to come down here first to get the DRZ and we could meet you on the way. (Next weekend!)

Alex, I'm going to meet them in Arcadia now, at 10AM. Don't know if you want to ride over there or not? Tommy, we'll check back in with you closer to Saturday. I've got both bikes ready to go!

It depends on what the route the route back to this area is. If it just street there and back ill pass. I might end up having to go to miami saturday morning to pick sometbing up so im not sure how that will fit into my plans either.

OK, time to plan a ride for Saturday! Who's going out East of Naples? I need to make a run from Jane's Scenic west end to the intersection of 29 and I-75 cross country. Yes there is a marked trail!

I was thinking about going to the vintage motorcycle show at the BMW dealer on Saturday. I have to work on my jeep as well this weekend. I need to get this thing done!

Cape coral bike night is better. I like the one every other weekend to at the Naples ale house. I went once when it was at cypress motorsports and had a good time. I can't go anymore tho cause I have my son every weekend.
