Not right at so many levels.

On a side note, I can't believe the mower deck is already on the tractor because I had to start mowing the yard.

That's a cool old bridge. We went across it a bunch of times before they welded guardrails across the ends. I'm sad to see those go... they pulled down the old 40 bridge across the Ohio River iin Bridgeport sometime recently, too. It was up last year, I made it a tag; and last week I saw it was gone. Still waiting for the SR715 bridge to get torn down.

I know its early but anyone planning on riding this weekend. Got the 450 plated today and the 690 has been squirrelly in the dirt so set the sag and suspension to factory settings and need to get them out for a ride. Finally done wrenching until the next round of repairs.

Spring cleaning...

Free stuff!

I want this crap out of my house. Now.

Call dibs on the item in this thread, and then PM me for details.

Two items are available, preferably picked up in or around the Marietta or Athens area, or maybe I can meet you somewhere. If you could find it in your heart to make a $5+ donation to advrider/baldy for the site in return for your free* stuff, that would be nice too.

Here's what's available:

Poorly photographed Top Box



Upgrade your KLR and replace it's milk crate with this free top box. Includes one key and all of the mounting stuff. (Might be missing a bolt or something, yours to figure out.) The latch to remove it from the mounting plate is picky sometimes, maybe if you show it a good time and spray it down with some white silicone grease, it will release itself to you much more freely. Or not, whatever.

If no one takes this within a week, I'm strapping it onto the back of the first KLR I see. Unfortunately for Half_Price_Beemer, his is the only one I ever see running around Athens. Somebody take this, so Matt doesn't find it strapped to the back of his bike next week.

Next up, a yellow coat.









Bumblebee flavored black/yellow Joe Rocket Ballistic textile riding jacket, size XXL. The arms are a bit shorter than I prefer, but maybe you have T-Rex arms and can use this.

Only crashed once, but that left it with a nice patina and a few pretty light dirt stains that could probably be removed by a professional type of person who does these things for a living

Honestly, this thing is in great shape. No real cuts/rips tears to speak of, just the dirt stains from when I was attacked by ninja deer on my V-Strom. This is a really nice jacket that was given to me for free, and I'd like to pass it along.

That's all for now. If you take this stuff and don't like it, please pass it along to someone else for free and pay it forward.

Thanks!

Are you really a XXL? Be aware that this jacket fits me decently and I'm a pretty big dude. Also, I'll need to verify your T-Rex arm length

so, I had an eventful day....worked from 6am to 2pm and it sucked...came home and had a 45 minute nap, then hit the road around 4pm...rolled out past Malt/McConnelsville to the Big Muskie then turned left up rt 284 (FUN road, even with all the shit/sticks/gravel all over it) and got the latest Farnsy Tag...then I rolled the rest of the way up 284 to 146 which took me into Z'ville where I picked up I-70 and super-slabbed it (avg of 80 mph) into Cbus to arrive at Dirty Franks Hot Dogs by 715.

175 miles all told by the time I got home..give or take a couple.


oh and here's the video of my ride in the TH area on saturday:



2.5 hours of video edited down to 15 minutes of dirt. about 1 minute in, the camera clip comes halfway off my goggle strap as I executed an unintentional snap turned to the right and almost went over the bars...dont think I'll use that method anymore (the turn or the camera mount )

OK, but I would rather it be directly used by someone who frequents this thread. If it doesn't fit, I'd prefer it be re-posted here and given a chance to be used by a fellow Ohio ADV'er. That was the point of posting it here.
