I continued on to work, just like I had meant to do that awesome powerslide out of the corner because I had witnesses! Of course, my heart rate and blood pressure were through the roof.

I really need to sell my hooligan bike before I get myself hurt and buy one of them there fancy DS bikes.
Glad you were able to keep it out of FP...do you keep a spare set of "you know what" at the office?

Trust me, my "you know what" was puckered so tight I don't think I could have forced a category 5 hurricane through!

Get real, you'll just get a DS bike and put slicks on it to make it a super-moto.

I like to tell myself that I'll have two sets of wheels, one set for the street and one for the not so street. However, even a DS with slicks will be better offroad than my current off road ninja!

Oh, I was that strange teen ager that thought the DR350 was the sexiest bike ever. Just because it's the only thing I could afford had no sway whatsoever on that emotion I promise!!!!

Now all I need is a destination... LOL
ITS SLAP time, plan a trip down to Arkansas and be my pavement riding buddy! We can show those awful Dual Sport guys how it's done.

Me thinks you should take a closer look at those tires. I'd say that is pretty much ready for a few dirt roads at least.

I figured we'd bring the wheel polish kits and shine up the chromey bits while you go get all muddy and stuff! By, the way, I'm just jealous that I don't currently have a DS and am trying to compensate with horrible humor...

No comment.

BTW, you need to pickup the KC tag, it's still down here in SW Missouri. GD is supposed to grab it today, but perhaps you can beat him to it?

We're both chomping at the bit, that site looks like Radar hill, but I may be mistaken. So, we'll sneak over that way in a bit

What are these "chromey bits" you speak of? And what's "polish"?

I think there used to be some chrome bolts on the DR, but I can't tell anymore.

I think that's it, but just in case, one last hint, North of Captain Johns Hole in Ore or No Go.

Well we posted the tag. Unfortunately we ran out of daylight to find the next tag. Today the weather is looking crappy and HBN has the joy of working for a living. Tomorrow is obviously not looking good for a ride either. So it may be Saturday when we can coordinate something.
