I thought they were like the new Husky's and came with a regular street title? Unless I'm thinking of the SuperMoto versions?

I know two guys locally that both have the 550 SM's. Regardless, they are damn sexy bikes.

I could be totally wrong abot that, but I'm pretty sure that is how it is.

Have fun riding today, Blue...wish I could join you but I have work to do.

No probs on the shirt dude. Forced me to go into that damn shop on Upper Hembree though.

I am looking forward to the Devils Creek ride. From the pics I have seen, this will be right up my alley. I got my first taste of sand at the Scrub last year, and I am hooked on it. Any other local boys going down for it this year?

Just picked it up earlier this week, and yes it's the new VTwin enduro/maybe trail bike,....we'll see. It was a wholesale dealer to dealer deal so I couldn't resist. Have about 15 miles on it just playing around the shop here. It's technically not Homogulated for DOT use, but wont be a problem to legitimately tag it here in GA when I decide to do so. The MSO looks like any other from Aprilia, For now it gets a dealer tag.

Coates my brother! They said you were out of town man. Sorry about that, dude. It will not happen again. You are one of the best dudes I know...surely didn't do it on purpose.

So, what should we do about next weekend? Sunday shows a 60% chance of rain, Saturday 30%. I am not sure I can ride Monday just yet. It is a possibilty but I can't commit to it yet.

Let's ride out Sat am no matter what.

Hello Men,
My buddy and I ride tagged DRZ-400. He on an "S" and mine is an "E". We live east of Atl in Covington and are getting tired of the same old D-town woods and the like. I love ride some new stuff meet you guys up north sometime. Is there another site I should check to be in the ride loop?

Thanks,

r

Men? We are DOGS. Just kidding dude, welcome to the group. I am pretty sure this is the only site you need to be in the loop, although I highly recommend dixiedualsport.com as well to meet some really cool folks.


Dags- I don't care what we do as far as lodging. Hotels are nice, but I am broke as a joke and it'll be hard to cough up the $ for this weekend as well as still having $ left for the Devils Creek ride at the end of the month.

I was thinking we could meet in Clayton, at that cool little campsite that you had to cross the creek to get to. I can get better directions posted if this is good for everyone. I would drive the truck up there, so I can bring supplies (food, alcohol). We could meet up there Saturday am, and ride all day...camp there Sat pm, ride Sunday. If I can camp Sunday night I will.

What say you all?
