Not sure anyone wants to think about it for a day or so.

Where ever it is, I'm gonna miss it. I'll be out of town on a w/e ride.

It's cleaning up nicely - I've been working on it the last few days - now just waiting on some parts to finish it up as well as two new tires. It is surplus to my needs, so if there's any serious local interest, PM me, I can pass on the savings and you can get yourself a nice little knock-around dual purpose machine.
Hey, whatever happened with this? Sounds like what I'm after!

Don't hold your breath. They are now over a year past their last "grand opening date". Front door is chained shut. Word in P-town is that the entire building is in legal limbo over unpaid bills, unpaid contractors, and unpaid taxes. I'd love to have a Croaker Spot just down the street from me, but I don't think it's going to happen anytime soon.

Wyatt Signs here in Petersburg does great work and I've used them a lot. A good amount of my stickers on my bags came from them. They can also package the decals to be rubbed straight onto the surface as individual pieces, not as one big sticker. I'll be out of town for a while, but I'd say someone could contact Judy at Wyatt Signs, 804-733-5251. Website is www.Wyattsigns.com Tell her Jeff sent you.

2. "Gravel Road Jedi Master" Andrew Lacy has agreed to guide us out on 60W to some gravel roads en route to Big Levels.

3. From there, have fun, help each other up, take some cool pictures, get some lunch along the way (snacks and water very strongly recommended) and then ride some twisties (maybe 56) back to the river city!

4. Try to be home before dark for dinner! (and Motrin!)

70% chance of thunderstorms tomorrow afternoon. Plan on getting wet. Sunday is supposed to be nice. I am willing to get rained on if everyone still wants to go tomorrow...If we went on Sunday, it would be a very sloppy mess, the creek and stream crossings will be river crossings and we will all get 25+ reps deadlifting our bikes upright...



So far it looks like me, Brenda, Andrew, maybe Mike, maybe Dan....Anybody else?

Are you kidding, we're mighty adventurers and will not be foiled by rain forecasts. Have rain suits will travel. (If it gets too crappy I'll just go home. it's only a couple hours out)

I was almost forced to bail..

after supper decided to throw on a older tire I had laying around. I took it off before a big trip this spring and it was too good to throw away. Better than what I was riding on so I switched em out.




Tires changed, ready to put the wheel back. I gather up the little cush drive rubbers and as I put them back in the carrier - come up two short. Crawled around looking under stuff and can't find 'em. Thought what the hell could I have done with them, did I accidently kick them across the garage.. and as I'm searching around I notice a prime suspect ...



*%!@# puppy!

Naturally this widens search zone and soon found one mauled but useable in the driveway and the other with minor chew marks upstairs by the couch. They're good enough for now, but I'll have to order some.

Barn door windsheild removed........Check!
Saddlebags and topcase removed...Check!
New tires...................................Check!
Zumo loaded with waypoints..........Check!
iPhone and GoPro fully charged.......Check!

See you in the morning!

P.S. As much as I enjoyed her, the Warthog and I just weren't meant for each other! She's a great, fun, reliable as an anvil bike who will better serve a more leisurely "trail rider". Besides, I'll never be able to catch Chuck, Dan, Jeremy and Mike B on their "big" dirtbikes on this thing!! I promise to give her a good bath before handing over the keys to the new customer!

Somehow not surprised to see this. Why am I thinking you are just going to have one bike and do it all with the GS? That being said, you should let higworld get first dibbs. It might be OK for what he wants or it might not.

Also, what tires did you put on?

Rode a 200 the other day. Tad too small for my fat ass frame. Felt like my knees were at my ears and couldn't stand up more than halfway because of the short distance between pegs and bars. Thanks for the thought though.

Then again .. Do they make lowered pegs for that thing? Lol!

Actually, let me ask a question. The 200 I rode wouldn't get out of its own way. Absolutely zero power. Ran like crap. I've seen you ride, and I find it hard to believe you would put up with that. Is your 200 that underpowered? Or was this an experiment that ran its course?
