Thinking Saturday

Chris, not firm (it's always possible I might sissy out) but I'm thinking of riding up on Saturday, 46 and rain, can't do Sunday, Grandson's 2nd Birthday, I know I don't lookover 30......

Bike Show Plans

I had planned on heading up Friday night, spend the night at my sister's house in Fredricksburg, then catch the train / metro to the Convention Center Saturday morning. As the week progresses I'll firm my travel plans up.

Bike Show

I was just reminded that I have a prior engagement for Saturday, so that's out. Sunday looks to be a better weather day anyhow, too bad Grandpa Tommy I know you have plans that day and Roger is going up Saturday right? May have to ride it alone. Think I will put a new thread out there and see if anyones interested for Sunday. Maybe some of those Richmond boys would like to link up.

Yup, Sat for me. I was wanting to go up Fri and spend the night as well with the little woman but I just don't think it's in the cards. My 15 Y/O is on house arrest (grounded) for a party she got busted at a couple of weeks ago, that one can't be trusted!!!!

Hey guys! the dinner friday was fun! too bad I didn't get to ride there... I need to get my heated gloves asap! ;)

Just figured i'd throw it out there that i'm selling the XT225... I know some of y'all saw it on that one dirt ride we all did... and someone mentioned it would be a great bike for your wife... well here's your chance! ;)
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=422514
I might also mention that it's easier to trespass on smaller bikes than that v-strom posted above... just sayin..


shameless plug, sorry! but y'all are local and that's just convenient!

Does anyone around here have a lowered DR650? I'd like to sit on one to see how much lowered I have to go.. I've seen one lowered like stock, and then lowered with links, and a shaved seat..but I don't know if i'm THAT short!

Oddly enough I just saw one yesterday at Danny's place, he said it's factory lowered. On ADVrider Danny is "phred3512", he's a super nice guy and always buying, selling, and trading stuff. You can give him a call at 544-7206. He recently had a DR650 listed in the flea market that sold; that's not this one.

Good luck,
Markus
