Saturday or Sunday for a shakedown ride of my CL350?

After riding it a bit, I really think it would be fine on 90% of the stuff we normally ride. It definitely has a lot more gumption than I remember the 350s having. Not going to be comforatable...



I'm just operating on the assumption I will have all the LITTLE bugs worked out by the weekend. May or may not happen.

Ride this weekend

If I can get the parts for my xr in time, I'm definitely in for this weekend but if that doesn't happen, I will try to get my new old dirt bike going. I put it back together and now it won't start. (story of my life)

Count me in John, after the week I've had I need to ride this weekend at least one of the days. Sorry I can't ride with you tomorrow Fisherman, I think John is right, Friday will be the best riding weather day for the next few, but I work Mon-Fri.

Ok mark, I was getting worried and planning a solo adventure. I found some roads that look interesting out here by bullrun watershed. I don't know about you riding over here tho, it may turn out to be nothing. And you'd burn a gallon of oil. Hee hee So we can go back over to that road by the coast. Say Saturday, that way I'll just head to the beach house and go crabbing Sunday.Wow a 2 day no wife or responsibility weekend. How often does that happen? Sweet

Hmm. Maybe I should wear the knobbies into some dirt instead of pavement this weekend, eh? Commuting is fine, but exploring is better. Saturday or Sunday for me is fine. I'm preferring closer in. I wanna see that clean, clean 350 get mud all over it.

I think my Saturday is totally booked. Odds are 50/500 that I will have the bike ready. Sunday afternoon?

WOW wade, thats looking really really nice. I'm impressed. Would like to give her a spin some day.

So is there a ride this weekend? Luke and I had been talking about maybe going practicing at the infamous quarry but I've not heard from him of late.

Hey Brit, mark and probably al and I are looking at some coast range riding. Gonna be wet, but riding is riding. Feels good till you get soaked thru. Would you be in?

I'm thinking tomorrow. We wouldn't do more than 150 miles. I have my koplin jr fuel pack on so I have 1.5 gal extra. If needed. Waiting on mark to jump in with time to meet. Stay tuned for more info I guess, love to see you guys tho.
