I just want to thank you for putting the idea in his head. He would have thought of it on his own, I was hoping to get a few weeks with no camera hanging from around his neck.

That's one of the benefits of full face helmets and tinted visors

Had to take the van to work because of travel Monday, but I so wish I had taken the KLX...some inconsiderate moron wrecked on the "Nice" bridge and traffic was backed up for about 10 miles...Would have been nice to skirt the corn fields and tree lines to get up to the front.

2 and a half hours staring at an expedition's back bumper and the daughter's didn't even have enough consideration to leave one of their Nintendos in the van...

I think I found Phillygal's next bike

Here is a cool article about choosing a DS bike. Just in case the seat height becomes an issue. Yes I'm bored

Just ordered lowering links for the KLX yesterday...and she ordered a pair of MX boots today. Seat height shouldn't be an issue.

That is weird, I am reading your post while sitting in a Waffle House.

Just rode through a heavy rain storm, and then realized I was starving as I passed a waffle house in the vicinity of Virginia Tech...

Go here on your way back. N37 21.870 W80 13.548


Get off I81 at Christiansburg then back on I81 at Salem.

The last 0.7 mile you have to hike. Part of it is on the Appalachian Trail.
