Sweet scooter Vic!

My buddy Mark Woolard raced the AHRMA ISDT qualifiers at meridian this weekend. Here's the a message he carried on his front number plate for the weekend. He got a gold and a silver medal.

One day when I grow up I'll get me an orange bike. For now I'll just ride my DR650 and dream.

Ok here is story

First - 530 carb should be here today and 530 should be purring this evening. Then its complete deep clean, remove extras, and sell.

If any of you are looking or know someone who want a good dependable bike mine should be in good shape for sale! I won't sell it with issues.

Reidinitaly sent me email with ebay offering of used 2012 500.... you cannot by a new one cause there are none left....

this one had 116 miles on it. Guy bought it, on the second ride crashed and broke a bunch of bones.. sent bike back to shop and they le[t it awhile then decided to sell it. It was on ebay 6 hours when I bought it. I am first name on title.

It has a few little nicks but a new seat, skid place (alum), better (not the best) bark busters, grab handles front and rear, shark fin on rear break, fork sliders (i may remove), but with stock gearing and complete emmissions.

This bike is NOT a reworked 530. I just love it. It feels more like my old YZ250F...

We had our honeymoon together this weekend and I will share next weekend.

Sweet Vic! ALWAYS exciting getting a new ride.

Gonna have a waiver to sign for next Saturday's ride because of so much litigation from this:

Vic, don't mess with that emissions stuff. I've read that it will run like poop without it installed.

Wow, Vic!! You got a new bike? I thought you were showing off the new hat......

Congrats dude. That is a seriously nice looking ride. When I see you, I'll fall in two steps to the rear and one to the left, the traditional trailing position for one who is in a lesser position.

Can't wait to see it.
