Yeah, this is what it looked like at the beginning of our 1000 mile trip.



It's a testament to how good Michelins are that it held together quite well after what we put it through.

I am at home this week and may go riding if anyone is interested in a weekday dirt ride. Out to Spec I imagine.

Anyone interested ?

If I dont go during the week I am thinking of camping out Friday night and riding all day Saturday.
Traveling Sunday for out of town work.

Just thinking at this point.

Anyone else interested...

And now the F-ing Horn don't Work. guess ill check the wires.

Barbers was fun, as I was leaving I came across a Dirt Ninja Adventure Bike that was Bad-Ass, crash-bars,lights, ect. got a pic. of it try to post it some time.

Putting my gear one I herd ( There a Adventure Rider !!! ) Looked up saw 3 guys and a girl walking toward me with there middle finger pointed up, did not know them they all rode KTM's and had 950's I held up my ADV flag and then they said Your,e the super hero guy on the WTF page. Had to talk to them for a good while, Boy them 950 people can talk and talk and talk and talk all day.

I think I saw the same Ninja on Sunday. Red?

Barber's was great this year as usual. Brother bought a parts bike for an old SL100 Honda project.

Racing was terrific and got to see some old friends.

Good times.....

I didn't see they hydro bike but I bought a few glasses of tea. And you're right, I bet the McAlister's people make a ton. Figure the cups are a nickle a piece and another six or seven cents for tea, sugar and water and ice and they sell them for $3 a pop AND keep a waiting line all day long.
