I'm not even sure that you can get there from here. Don't forget that my hitchin' gift to you both still stands. I offered to videotape and catch all the wild action of the entire honeymoon activities...

Did I not see you riding last week?

I made it out for a 50 mile ride yesterday. Checked out the former swinging bridge site. Fairly muddy on the South side of the creek so I stayed North. Then rode by Moto Supreme and saw a few vehicless parked there.

Honeymoon lasts 6 days brah! Camping on the beach off the bike in the upper peninsula for 1 night mid week. Back roads and trails all the way up and back. I'll throw your XR on the trailer so you can ride the FiJi up and back.

Going to get my taxes done. Utilitarian rides don't count. Even if it is the long way home.

I don't know if I explained that well enough. If I shift and am at 6,000RPM it does not really take off, but one I hit 7,000RPM it goes. This becomes and issue on the highway when I shift to 6th gear I just hand out about 56 MPH. I should have enough left to reach 70 MPH but the RPM's won't get up to 7k where it really kicks in and takes off.
Get the supertanker put on yet? ;)

Yup she's a cheesehead. Hometown of Dodgeville.
We might do 1 night in a fantasy suite. Maybe get a cabin 1 night.
Otherwise we're in a tent.

Sorry TheBigLebowski. It's a beautiful bike. Perfect 2 up adventure machine.

Sorry Tpar. Nice quad.

No worries.......it's all good.

If you really feel bad, sell my KLR so I can go buy that KLX and maybe I can post videos like Landon

Picked up a 09 R1200GSA, filled the tank and the computer said it had 435 mile range, love it

It came with the BMW vario side cases, I am selling them and the mounts, retail over $1000, asking price $550

I'm planning Motosupreme Friday and Redbird Saturday if I can get all my school work done far enough ahead.
