I have a brand new Scorpion Trail for the Versys if interested.

I should think that you would easily get 5K out of them on the Versys, I wouldn't say that hey are all that much better on gravel and such than the Roadtec Z6s I had on the bike previously but in rain or on mixed surfaces they really inspire confidence.

Confidence is what we're looking for, thanks

Call it the 9,10,11 ride. About 160 miles of what Western Ohio think is twisty road with a little gravel thrown in for shits and giggles. Thanks to Scott for lunch at Desperado's. Not a bad joint at all. Lisa, good seeing you and having a chance to catch up. PS I like the stealth black S-10 as much as EJ's graphic strewn ride.

Speedway


Lunch

Thanks for lunch, Scott. Luke, you put together a nice mix of roadways and gravelways - the bike and I appreciated a gentle introduction to gravel. I need to try some gravel with the Traction Control in a less aggressive setting. Great fun day - and good pictures. I tried to steal them for my digital album but they come out as a thin line...

I will not mention the introduction to Roadkill Redux... but interesting concept.

Let's do it again... I'll buy lunch next time.

And hey, I distinctly remember you saying you liked my bike much better than "no-show" EJV - but that could have been the voices in my head??

Thanks again!

Lisa.

2008 w/ 12,000+ miles. All the off road add ons / guards. New non-DOTknobs. Mechanically great, plastic looks a bit rough.

Might also trade for a DR650...



Edit, went ahead and listed it:

No I said yours isn't all beat up like EJ's. Keep riding with me and we'll get it there.

So thanks to my Oregon Scientific Camera I bought like 5 years ago, I have really crappy quality video of the ride. But I hope my touch ups at least make it fun to watch.

Luke , Lisa

I had a great time. Came home and took a ride on the mower, now I'm riding the couch & watching F-1 qualifying I recorded this morning. Next time let's head south-east, I'm sure we'll get more folks to go along then.

We'll have to see how the off road riding schedule goes. Very likely as the temp goes down and the trails get icey I'll be doing on road riding more.

Yep, I had to get some Cub Cadet time in too... It does give me a chance to practice hanging off as I try to save time turning on the hill. I learned as much today as I did the last time we rode together. Great day (and good idea to go to Huntsville!)

Anything that big I just use a chisel and hammer on to spin it.
