As much as that sounds like a blast, I've got family stuff to do tomorrow...plus I dont even know if Dora will start...

on the plus side, Maggie gets a new starter and Sabrina gets her windsheild today and I'll be able to do some miles in the Hocking Hills tomorrow before/after the family thing

yinz have fun without me...

From there it's onto the RR bed towards Urbana and then some back roads towards Springfield and Hidden Springs where we'll do a loop around the property and ride in the creek before we head back to my place to hang out and play on the mini track I've made out back.
Make sure you're on good 50-50 tires that will do road and trail. It's dry so there shouldn't be any real slick stuff.

Luke, check your PM's and expect a call later tonight. -Mike

In case anyone is wondering the ride goes on even if it's just me. I'll be on the KTM 950. If your arriving after 11am in Plain City, we'll be gone.

Which one of you guys are selling a YFZ450?


http://cincinnati.craigslist.org/mcy/3080236900.html

"Listing removed but just want you all to be cautious. Posting title: Yamaha YFZ 450

I went over to this guys "house" earlier today (it's more like a garage...if you could even call it that) and ask to see the machine. He lead me on the same path from his garage to what looked like a camp site. He said he liked to go out here here to think on the meaning of life. I got creeped out and told him I was only interested in seeing the bike. He asked to see my hand and put it on his chest and said "feel that? I think there's a connection right there". I snatched my hand back and he stepped really close to me, so I turned and started running.


By now I'm really scared and thinking he was going to grab me but he just catches up and starts running alongside me. He looks over and says "lovely day for a run" and smiles really weird. I noticed he had taken his pants off and was running in his underwear and work boots. I decided I may have to fight my way out of this situation so I stop and put my fists up. He jumps back and tells me I have the wrong idea, he just wanted to run. So I tell him again I only want to see the machine. He leads me back to the "garage and opens the door. The bike is inside and was nice, but he goes over to a weight bench and starts firing off" "reps" with like 12 pounds on the bar. He says he likes to "work out" and I'd had enough and left without the bike.


It's a shame too, it seemed like a good deal.

I don't know. Sounds like you might have gotten screwed in the deal.

I may have went a little nuts tonight....went to Champs for dinner with a friend and stopped at IP quick to get some goggles...

ended up with this:

and this:



and these:



oh and a set of goggles, which I left sitting on the counter and have to go back for tomorrow.....I couldn't resist the pant and jersey for $50 deal, and I need blue pants to justify the future WRR purchase....

I tried all the new gear on and I feel like that dorky kid who's mom way over dressed him for every activity....sad considering the first ride I showed up to not that long ago on a 27 degree morning sporting a hoodie and rocky boots...

I get bouts of insomnia and that night was one of those times. Overall I try to be on time if not early. Only other time I've been late was another RR ride where I had to change a flat tire that morning. Lucky I have two front and rear rims for the KLR so I just changed the whole wheel. But today I'm up and getting ready now.
