Put me down as a “maybe” for the CF M&G, I usually work Saturdays but you never know and of course they never tell me until Friday.

A buddy of mine bought a new KLR, he said he’s invested in a large bottle of Loctite, the bike is painfully slow and not good for riding two-up, other than that he loves it.

Still a KLR. It'll be a turd for performance. Rock solid bikes, I owned one for a few years.

Boring. Thanks again.

Add a +1 to my potential showing.

The governor might tag along if the weather is decent enough or if we don't take the bike to Burlington because she wants to ride snake alley.

If you have never heard of it here is a linky:

http://www.snakealley.com/

I never even knew it existed.

Also, 30 Bones Struthers has 2 Sprint ST's waiting for you!

Very nice machines both with hard cases.

Was just thinking for Global Girl.

If she could bring her bike and tires with her for the meet and greet, I could bring my balancer and wheel weights, tire irons and air pump.

We could swap her tires for her in the parking lot!

Just need a center stand or something to hold the bike up! Milk crate anyone?

What say you fellow inmates?

I think that's up to her. I wouldn't do it at Gravy's though. Kind of a small parking lot.
