I have a few non ADV'ers coming to Spring house. I am there at 9:30 ish. Not trying to ruffle feathers and don't care either way, but they don't see this thread is all. It's too late to call them now. If we are at SH and need to go to Perkins, we can do that. I will call you tomorrow with the skinny. I am shot, 2 hours of shotgun moving took 5

Back from breakfast and nice ride over to Stone City. Kevin was leading the way. I had the Go Pro with me but didn't change the batteries...no video. Still had a great morning ride though...

Yep, condo is selling. I've got my eye on this place out in the country on the east side now. It'll cost a lot more, but it'll have tons of space for my shitty motorcycles!

And on the KTM, give it a week

Breakfast was great, I vote for more local breakfast places for the future!

Afterward, I rode up to McGrath to test ride an 08 WeeStrom. Very nice bike. Felt light for such a big looking bike. It & a DR400 might replace the mighty XT if I can ever afford it.

Have too much experience moving, but willing to give a hand if you need it. I've also got a trailer & access to a full-size truck & 16 ft flatbed car trailer if needed.

Don't know if you want me going to the hill climb. Been there twice & each time someone broke a major appendage within 20 minutes of me arriving & the event went on hold waiting for a backup meat wagon. :)

You are correct though Josh, the people watching is GOOD!

Hillclimb here also.

Austin, too bad you are in C'ville I rented my basement last summer for what you are paying now and you'd have garage space too.

Scott... Sorry we couldn't find you at the races. My youngest and I got there around 6:30 or so... Stayed for the rest of the night. I had 2 good friends racing in the 40 plus class. They finished 1st and 2nd so we had a good night.
