Hey!

if you're ridin' around Chershockton you're out near my parents area. there's plenty of beautiful rolling hills and it sometimes reminds me of my trip to ireland in the spring/summer time. just watch out for the amish. it can literally leave you in the dumps because of the dumps!

About me... 29, married, 2 kids. I have a Yamaha FZ1 that I ride alot, almost 17k this year. It rocks.
It also eats tires so I'm kinda looking for a cheap thumper for commuting/adventuer. If you have a pile of xr/klr or similar parts that need removed from your garage let me know... I tend to ride around Coshocton (715, 520, 83, 541) and the like on pointless afternoon rides. I did some STing this summer- BRP, smokeys, dragon ect... Also a couple weekends in WVa. I prefer to camp. I hope ride with some of y'all next summer.

Ride on! Tim

Anybody get a new bike or some other sweet thing for Christmas this year?



I got a 5 pin sight for my bow and a nice set of drill bits just to start it off.

I got a bike lift form Harbor Freight and a controller for my heated jacket. Used the heated jacket on the tractor today plowing the driveway. Worked great. The 250X is still snowed in at my moms garage. I was going to bring it home xmas eve but the roads had salt on them and my driveway was a sheet of ice.

I got a new Ruger SR9c from the wife (paranoid gun nut penis-extension, btw), and she got an M&P Shield (vaginal extension?). Got new parts for the KTM too so hopefully I have it back together by the time Buckeye Lake freezes over.

Sounds like a cool book.
I have a Seat Concepts on my WR (it came on it), I fin'd it very comfortable. I've been on it 10 hrs & it was fine. I think I'm going to order 1 for the KLR.

I got nothing, I gave nothing (except $50 to each of my stepdaughters).

We're still in ultra econ mode here, waiting for the city to lay me off.

I went Toyota. My last ride was an Acura,and it held up well. Good gas mileage,really reliable,and besides brakes,some bearings at 280k,and rust,she held up well and didn't ask for much of anything besides oil and gas. Honda lost my vote on the new vehicle with lack of a manual and 4x4. The ridgeline looked nice...until you find it's a unibody.

I am not usually a big fan of Rugers but won one of those at a NRA banquet last year and found it surprising nice! I got not much from the family and my wife said no more motorcycles, so I bought myself a Swarovski Z6i 1-6x24 and Kahles K6-24x56. My first european optics and now I'm hooked...
