DAMN on the DR mileage. And I thought I was out of control racking up 21k miles in 2 years of riding. 17 606's is out of control ... great tire though!
Ooops! 21k is pretty good for as much as u have going on. Nice to see so many miles from people on here. I know others that only put 2k per year. Riding is just too much fun. I'd double it if I had the time ya know.

That is a TCI Products rack. There website is here; http://www.tciproductsusa.com/

Also, +1 for the Shinko 244. For a very cheap dual sport tire I am loving mine so far, better feel that a Kenda 270, seems harder compound, seems to grab the pavement better too. It's not a 606 in mud, but I'm expecting it to last longer.

10:30am tomorrow morning at the DQ is a go. There is still a lot of snow up here at 1200ft (3 or 4"), but anywhere car tire tracks have been it's long since melted, I'm guessing the coast will be significantly more clear.

See you tomorrow morning 10:30am at the DQ ion H26 in Manning (that's the same one as usual...near Banks OR.)

Anyways.. just finished some routine mait. and plan on being there at 1030, proposed route and time perhaps?

Pm mark for his spot address, she can follow that. We'll have you home before dark. Hopefully that will suffice. You know you can peel off any time. We are only 1 hour from pdx. I hope that helps. By the way check this out..... I bought one of these today. New chapter. Slow and steady. Gonna take it to the obdr this summer. Yee ha. Karla is gonna take the classes with me. Red menace teaches on his property in hood river. Comes in the end of this month. Don't worry though still have the dr to be an idiot on. Can't stop the moron from riding too fast. . Hmmmm. Al are you coming this weekend?

You bought a Ural Gear-Up.....

If I was to get one that would be the model I'd get.

Yep, Jim had one coming in the 20th. Pulled the trigger! Been looking for some time. 2 sellers backed out this month. When have you said "serious sellers only please". I did! So I just bought new. 2 year bumper to bumper warranty, like that. Said I'd never buy new again, but you know how that goes when you sit on the bike in the shop? Karla's gonna learn too. Cool! I won't leave you guys in the dust don't worry.. Top speed 65mph. Lol. I'll wait at corners for ya. I tell you what last time when we got stuck in the snow and turned around, I would have kept going. 2 wheel drive! splurged for nobbies too. Try and stop me.

Awesome! Can't wait to see it tomorrow if you're riding it. I think I have a link to Mark's spot page here somewhere, so I got that covered. How any people do we have for tomorrow?

Congratulation on the new Gear Up. I suspect you will have a good time with it.

Now hurry up with the pictures of the new toy.

You guys have a great ride today. I hear flowers are starting to pop up over there on the wet side so isn't about time you guys stop and get a picture or two of them? (I keep hoping)

Thanks everybody! Pretty excited as u can imagine. Haven't got it yet. Comes in the 20th then they are adding some stuff, so Jim said he'd have it done by the end of the month. Tuff to wait! Gives me time to read the book on how to ride it though? I got the camo one and will post up some pics when it gets here. Sounds like I need to be prepared prior to striking out on an adventure. Totally different ride than a 2 wheeler. Looking forward to learning though. Got to sit on one and play yesterday, sure are neat. I can carry anything really, up to something like 1000lbs in the sidecar. Sweet!
