Just let her know you'll be skipping her starter marriage and will be at her next wedding.

IMO the oem trailwings aren't as bad as they're made out to be. They're good in everything except deep sand and mud. For a while I was getting take offs from those who didn't like them for dirt cheep. I've got 1-1/2 sets left.

CHEEP JEEP, just kidding!

Hello,

I have a set off my 09 dr650, also adventure, with about 1300 miles on them. If you want I can strap them to my bike and bring them to DV ride if you like. You are welcome to them for one cold refreshing beverage. Are you riding in?

more raffle prizes

daym....more good stuff

lost rider and izzieblue donating lots of goodies for the raffle.

not 1, not 2 BUT....

THREE Tours, separate winners - a one day Lost Rider tour on the appropriate bike of the winners choice, or a $350 credit towards one of my 4 day guided tour Lost adventures. The winner will have to follow the advertised requirements for the tours, same as anyone else, and can transfer the prize to anyone else if they choose.

will bring 3 gift certificates to the rally to give to the winners.


also will bring a handful of LOST decals for you to use as you see fit...


Here's the link to lost rider's site and a Logo for the post if you'd want to us it.

Secondly, Nancy aka izzyblue would like to donate two separate $80 store credit towards any Oakley Googles shipped to their home free of charge to the winners from Acadamy Optical. Acadamy Optical can also offer prescription lens inserts for these googles for an extra charge.
We will bring a couple of Oakley catalogs and gift certificates to the raffle to be given to the winners. We figured it would be best to let the winner choose their poison, no sense in a girl winning a guys googles, or a BMW rider winner Orange goggles, etc. She wants the winner to be able to use them.

Her business info is Academy Optical, Oaks Mall, Thousand Oaks, CA. Winners will not need come to the store to claim prize. They do not have a website currently...
Here's a link to Oakley's site for all the choices.

http://www.oakley.com/store/products?N=268+308+2348



THANK YOU NANCY AND FINN....

I have a 40" quad rack on top of custom TCI Sequoia so I can haul ALOT. I had a 36" quad rack on my tw200 and brought a small fridge to wifeys work for her office on back. Stopped at Cooks Corner to have a cold one and all the Harley boys thought that was a hoot. Told them, Cold Beer, always close by.

What a deal! I'll take you up on that HH. They have a really good micro brew selection at the PSR bar.

I'll be riding in but my neighbor Ersin can haul them back for me since he'll be trucking in.

Any pics of the fridge on the back of the tw? That's something you see in a 3rd world country

Rideshare and more

leaving from either California City, CA or West LA driving the Ford F-150, So i have room for an extra bike if anyone needs a ride up to DV_Noob 2013.

Also anyone bringing a generator?

Someone asked about riding around DV. California City has lots of open space it is though 130 miles away if you are coming from Colorado...

I'll keep you informed about the T800XC seat mod. Lendon went to the dealer show in Indianapolis this weekend, so perhaps next week. I did speak to L. and he said the ergos on the bike was unique and it was a hard bike to rework the seat. He mentioned that he would tweak some foam and then i can give him a ride report so further adjustments can be made. Just trying to get an extra 1/2 of stand over height. I can only touch the ground if i point my feet and stretch....

Lendon is the man when it comes to reworking seats.

Putting both feet on the ground is overrated.

Agreed, as Jimmy Lewis taught us 'We aint' riding Harleys out here'!



the seat should be great when they are done.

Thanks for posting that up Joel, we are glad to be able to contribute to the event!


I have added two n00bs rides to the ride sign up list, one of them the same as last year, the other something a little different. I will post up new GPX files to Lost website soon, the first Cabin ride is already on there, same proposed route as last year though this year we will actually make it the cabins having a full day.
