Oh, CodyWife and I had a little "mishap" on Godley Rd off 4 coming from Granbury towards Godley. Watch them water crossings. Been a while since I've had one bite me.

No harm no foul, Sam was a champ, and the Dodge behind me freaked out pretty good.

That's why I ride a dirt bike.

Oh and pop really needs to swap that sportster off

Of course, he could sell/trade it and get a sweet farkled up DR/XRL/KLR or DRZ that may well suit his needs better.

Keep it simple. Maybe just a old fat guy, from the back, on a partially ratted XR1200 cresting a hill into the sunset and flipping eveybody off. With both hands. Or something like that. ;)

I think they are a bit busy out there, but he will be heading home in about 3 weeks. I'm sure he will catch up to you soon.

That would be ok but you forgot the ridder in his long johns and a button popping off the back and the flap whipping in the breeze as he rides into the sunset

Or as CodyY said, to pirates its pronounced X aRg1200

How about a guy riding a bike so covered in dust, mud, and river crossing algae that it can't be identified. Maybe the bike is lying in the slime and our guy is wet and covered with the same algae and is bent over picking up the bike when his pant split and revealed his high-tech adventure underwear that never needs washing. Maybe he had a "close encounter of the deer kind" and dropping the bike at the water crossing wasn't the only accident he had...

Ok, how about a deer riding a motorcycle with guys in gear hopping out in front of it.

Or a Harley and a KTM side by side... on a trailer.

Will do man. We aren't in the same place anymore though. Tomorrow will be my one month mark for leaving this place though Spending my spare time researching and contacting dealers right now. We'll see what comes from it.

I'll shoot him a line.
