Chuck, You are welcome to use my truck if you simply replace the gas you use. I have a nice ramp, soft straps, tie downs and a Condor type front wheel stand as well. Where is it? Road trip?

P.S. I have a Members Only jacket and some parachute pants that you can use as well...

Chuck, here is a matching one locally for your wife: http://richmond.craigslist.org/mcd/2531325084.html

I'm just giving you grief my friend, congrats on the bike!

I'd gladly let you use mine, but I have to hook it up this evening to get ready to move my daughter tomorrow.

Nice looking bike, tho'.

I am amazed. We got power last night at 2040. I thought it would take weeks.

I am leaving for New England tomorrow. I was going to ride VT 100 to Canada, but I guess that plan is out.

It's really sad seeing roads I was on, and places I ate, just a couple of weeks ago - GONE.- or total destruction.

Have a safe trip Pete. Things are still shaky puddin' up there in spots.

Thanks, Guy. I'll probably ride around the Alleghenys. Maybe visit Rhinebeck Aerodrome.

Not everything is unscathed. I have been helping a friend clear out his place. Eight trees fell there, two on his house, and one on his garage and boat. Luckily, the bikes escaped. Now he gets to build the addition he has been promising his wife.

You guys are killing me. I saw that CB650 on Craigslist. Too small plus I found this CB900C for $1000 less. Madstrom the bike is located up I-81 into NY. I forgot to say where I was going to get it. Road trip indeed. Is that still ok?

Shoot, Pete is headed that way..... sorta. Buy HIM a bus ticket and let him ride it back. 'Course, you'll have to nail up his garage doors so he can't get it inside.

Working late Thursday evening. I do have a trailer that riders can borrow but I'll be using it this weekend to haul bikes.

Changing the subject. We are fine at my house with no electric power. However, I have always wanted one of the small Honda generators. Something like the EU 2000i or EU3000. Both would keep my freezer going and charge up the house batteries on the camper. The 3000 would do even more like run the campers air conditioning. Any experience?

I have an EU2000i companion. it has a 30 amp just like my boat (or your camper) needs.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Right now it is running 5 pcs, monitors, some fans and a digital phone so my business can open. It will do it for 9 hours on ONE GALLON of gas!!! It is also very quiet.


Wise sales and mayberry.com are where to call for pricing...

Do it you wont regret it.

For your ac get 2 of them and pair them with a cable that honda sells. That way you can use one if that is all you need, or both and they are still portable. The 3000 is not easily hauled around.

Also INVERTER generator...safe for flat screens/ PC/ cable boxes/ etc......

LOVE IT!!!

Did I say I love this thing???

I was considering a visit in Oct. Please let me know what you find if you get into northern New England at all.

You guys are all welcome to use my bike trailer anytime. It's small, so it'll only hold one bike, but it's very lightweight (50 pounds)? I used to pull it WITH the CBR.

Mike, this is 100 going through Wilmington, VT.... I'm thinking detour.

Guy, I thought I saw a pic of Dot's in that collection. Here it is. So sad. Downtown is pretty much written off, or so I'm told by a friend who was at the town meeting night before last.
