Just giving you a bad time since you deserve it! Prejudice is so arbitrary... you're a meany against bigger bikes, so you should rot in hell. (just kiddin', i want to come on your 1600 if my wife will let me) but i gotta say, 95% of the TH1600 doesn't appear to be tight single track...

Let's ride! (especially since i like giving you sh!t)

Yeah, so far the route will be cruiser, and it will be nice on many parts of it to have a little higher top end.

I will go out there say Mon Tues or Wed, and yes the ride will be very cold. If anyone wants to meet up with me for a cold ride out leaving from Orem through SLC message me here and we will collectively go get us some wind burn.

So I have not seen anyone else @ Knolls today. Fun riding, maybe a little cooler than I would like, but still fun.

Are you sure that was fun? Looks like scenes from The Shining to me.

D908RR for sale

I wasn't sure if this would fit my XR but i think it will... I decided i need my knobbies even if i have to replace them more.

it's a 140 width, 18, dunno... kinda standard. unmounted...

make an offer... i think i got a better deal than retailing at $180! I think i paid $110 + shipping (rockymtn, 1 in stock for 3 minutes) etc, so locals get first dibs to cover my cost, but besides the price, you might need to buy a six pack if you come over for recon and/or heated shop space.

So, what are you waiting for?

This is your chance to break bad habit!

After all, you are a "cheap bastard"!
