Paula and I went to an ADV/Ural/DNEPR rally (CRAP 4) over the weekend. It was at Jordan Lake near Raleigh, NC. Great people, great food, great location. One group rode down from Connecticut in the near freezing rain, Cueball packed a whole hog to cook on the fire.

WTF is a URAL/DNEPR


Not much riding going so Paula and I head over to:


The dogwoods, redbuds, and other assorted trees were starting to bloom


Had one of the best steak subs ever in Troy, NC


Camping on the lake



The new beastie is working quite well.





Hope you all had a great weekend. Quote of the weekend by Paula "this road has curves in it" ya gotta live in FL to appreciate that.

Just the facts. I have 10's of thousands of miles experience with both tires. I offered my experience to you free of charge. If you want to read between the lines or need some sugar coated spoon fed response, please leave now.

Negative, condescending, stupid, and generally shitty responses make me think twice about spending time with some of the posters here.

Are you guys nicer in person?

Do I take this stuff too seriously?

Did I do something to piss someone off?

Easy John-- it's just Karmatourer's fake n00b

Hog ridr, in hanging out w/ Sanjoh several times i've observed that he is neither Negative, condescending, stupid, or generally shitty. To the contrary, he's a class act.

Considerable overreaction FAIL

Good luck with your new tire
Let's try this again...

Thank you for offering your free experience and help.

x hog: you'll have a good time w/ this crowd. The ones i've met at various ADV gatherings are all top-shelf, and i consider them real pals. The wisdom you can pick up from Oscar and Sanjoh alone will up yr game considerably.

Jump in and have a ball, dude
