That's a cool little stretch of "hwy" - go there about once every 4 years or so to hang with Dad and trout fish and take das scoot out on the gap to shave down it's center-stand pads. I always wait for a weekday before I run the thing. Be safe manaingo.

My oldest child is down from NYC this weekend - prolly won't be out riding - but if she heads to p-cola to see her old buddies I may have Sunday clear...

Bad mirror!

That was one of the most dangerours inventions ever! I had one too. I learned to just forget it.

Mini - if you are staying an Navarre you should hook up with WD, WR and Phil who all live very close and meet me for a Ride though the central section. Great fun and but no single track. Yoiur 690 will eat it up. We could make it a two tank ride if all are willing.

You pic the day! Saturday is good for most.

Of course all are welcome!!

After picking up the KLX today in Tuscaloosa and two trips to the courthouse to give the state of Florida more money than they deserve, there was still some daylight left so I figured I'd initiate the KLX with a little Blackwater mud.



And while I'm at it, why not get the old cross rut on the center hump and find yourself sliding backwards bending the clutch lever and twisting the stock bars so you can go ahead and order some Renthal's thing out of the way.







Btw I heard you could power wheelie this thing in 5th gear, I must be doing it wrong.
