I may be riding this weekend, but probably on the Buell.

Well let me know, I might be interested depending on where, and for how long. I need to break out the FJR too.

I'll be riding on Monday. Kids on Sunday.

For those of you that didn't hear, I've been wrenching again. Coeur D Alene Powersports hired me last week. Of course, this means no moto vacations till fall, and the usual powersports schedule of Tu-Sa. So, Mondays are my Sundays, and this one will be spent riding.

That's so weird, cause Thursdays are my Wednesdays.

Will do, suppose to be riding with one of my neighbors on his Busa. Don't know the details yet, because I'm terrible at planning things.

Hey Ladybug
Thanks for putting together the meetup last weekend! I had a great time meeting everyone and checking out the show afterwards!!

On a sidenote, who had the other yellow Strom at the meetup?? I have been wondering how the two brothers pipes would sound on mine.

Sounds good. Brad is leaving Yuma tomorrow and hauling our bikes back and Dad won't be back until the middle of May.
Jake just bought a house in Alberton, so Robin and I are going over there next weekend.
Maybe we can get together the first part of April. Is Barry up here already?

The KTM 500exc is nearly $10k, don't see any reason to be timid with it. Price isn't the issue but all the little things go that can break and cosmetics. :-)

Eh, lets face it, I'm not going wild on any of them regardless of price. Hah, I'm a slow-speed trail rider and a street rider well before I do any motor-cross. But yes, I'd feel more comfortable on a KTM at $10k than a BMW at $10k. I'd feel even more comfortable on my Super Sherpa that only cost $1500 though. It suits my riding style, because I can still be slow, but on that tiny bike, I feel fast!

@Smithe Looks like tomorrow afternoon for our ride. Probably start in the Valley, take 27 to Plumber, St. Maries, backside of Lake CDA then home. But up for suggestions. I know Northwest Spokane much better than the Valley area.

He'll be here April 1st for a week for D100, then will return in June for the Black Dog in Hood River, the Jamboree, the MT1000 and whatever else he can be talked into.
