Congrats Doug!


Come Spring you wanna ride the Snowies again?

Heck now we both have Safari tanks we could make a monster loop of it





...hard to believe that ride was 3 years ago already

Ride the Snowies

Geek, I will ride with you anytime!
As long as there is no snow.... the ride this weekend sucked... but still better than sitting on the couch. I miss my 950SE but this bike (which you know from Denver) is set up VERY well. Safari's make the world a smaller place. Never had a big Katoom with SuperPlush... wow what a difference. I have the Sprinter, lets head South some week this winter.

Is this Jay71's bike?

If it is, it's the best farkled bike I've seen.

Jay's Bike

Yes it is! Finding a 2006 with only 5100 miles on it was a surprise to say the least. Very nicely done and why I could not pass it up.
I am doubting this bike has ever seen the nasty crap that I took it on this weekend. No abuse, but too damn nasty to stop and take pictures. I have snowmobiled in better conditions...

Safari tanks and Superplush - is that Jay's old bike? I've ridden it if it is.. it is set up well!

We should take the Sprinters and the bikes and escape for a 4 day weekend mid winter?


edit: just read the other posts - it was Jay's bike

Here is mine, 1 month old. Riding some typical Vermont woods trails. Not as scenic as all of your west side pictures (very jealous of what you have available to ride)

It's not a big bike, you just have the wrong tires ;-)
