Likewise, thanks for sharing the pizza

Great seeing everyone at Hawthorne's on Thursday. Augie - looks like me and Jon were asleep for the photo op.

Lent my cage to a friend whose wife's car spun a bearing, so I'm on the Strom for the foreseeable future. Still no dual sport but some day I'll be back to trail-ready and can delight in all of the gang's recent discoveries.

Definitely stiff and sore with a few new shades of purple and green on me, but MUCH better. Good enough to go do a little Turkey day exploring...


That's the scene, to the right of the bike you can see the small tree I hit (the part I hit was broken off and moved out of the trail). Thankfully I flew well beyond those rocks. Seeing how far I flew was pretty impressive.

Explored the rest of the trails back in there today too:


Back at home now ready for my food coma.

Glad to hear it. I spent the morning putting on my IMS tank, Corbin seat and new bigger rear sprocket. I'll get the D606's on tomorrow and may do a little exploring myself this weekend sometime.

Thanks for the offer but I'm all set now. I used a very powerful tire-changing tool.....my Debit card. The tires look awesome on the rims, and tomorrow I'll put the bike back together.

I need a different job - this "working Monday through Friday" BS is really cutting into my riding time.



>>EDIT SATURDAY NIGHT<< The DR is back together and almost ready to play. I had the tires mounted by Hendrick Powersports but I changed the seat, gas tank, chain & sprockets, and added the front fender brace. I certainly have a better chance now of keeping up with y'all.

Yeah I can't make it tomorrow. Might sneak out for a bit this afternoon if I can escape.

Edit - Joe just saw the pic of the bike - it looks great! looks like a different bike!

Your DR looks great! You're making me jealous. Wish I had a dirt bike in the stable so that I could join you guys on your dirt outings. Spent the day over in the Uwharrie National Forest riding tarmac today. A little chilly when I headed out at 9:30 AM, but the day turned out great.

Or we just need to plan a street ride. Last January I took a couple days off work, made a long weekend out of it and ran down to Florida for some warmth and fresh seafood.... Maybe a plan should be in the works for something like that?
