Jeremy - forgot to tell you that the GPS is back in action. Plugged it into the computer, called Garmin, did a software update, and - voila - appears to be good as new! Thanks again for the problem-solving tip.

AAARGH!!

Ifin ya go to Dr Keeney (rides mc offroad/dirt) you will feel no pain , Guy. Even after he put in the implant no pain and no pain after the novacaine wore off. Saved the scrip for when I get bucked off the high side and 'fook' up my back/legs

Sorry guys...running late & won't make it to the training grounds...riding around Williamsburg & West Point.

Nicole had her first OH SHIT!!! Moment today.

A little dirt in the gear...she pushed a little hard on this dirt road...

Proud of her...she knew right away what she did & is hopping right back on after a 35 mph low side on this road.

Her Sidi boots are on order. We ordered them Wednesday. She has motor cross boots, but does not like the look. After this she will always wear boots!!! Her calf is gonna have a bruise and she said right after it,"I should be wearing my boots." I think she learned the easy & not so hard way.

I'll second this. I just ordered a pilot power from him for the SV Thursday, and picked it up Friday afternoon.


On a side note, the SV is sold now. Now to search for a WR250R.

As I said at lunch Friday...we are full of ideas (some bad) but mostly expensive

I ordered the Sidi Adventure Gore Tex boots today...found what I think was a wicked good deal on Ebay...$329...

Chuck- yes & they held up perfect...no tears or holes. Just a little dirty, and that is her new winter ride ring coat that we picked up on Wednesday from Street Rockets.

Mike- Nice buy on the boots, are those the Adventure Goretex? If so that is an awesome buy if so...I just order a pair for Nicole & I Wednesday...I'm embarrassed to say not that cheap FO-SHO...
