New WeeStrom

Picked mine up Saturday after two years of lurking and researching. I've limited my riding to off-road only for the last 22 years and though it was time to add some road riding. I only managed 14 miles last weekend but hope to get a bunch more this weekend.

Took my '04 Wee down to run a 50k trail race this weekend at Mt. Cheaha, AL (highest point in the state). She was a beauty for this trip and quite fun on the windy roads.

Ha! Yeah, sorry about that. No snow here. Was sunny, though my ride home last night dropped below 30 and I don't have heated gear (other than grips). So there was plenty of shivering for sure!

New V-Strom!!

Got my "new" '09 V-Strom delivered to Dallas on Friday and burned a whole tank just driving around on Saturday. These are all from South Dallas and Deep Ellum areas. Anyone in the DFW area want to ride let me know. Enjoy!

Now remember, the car seat is supposed to face backwards if the child is very young so the airbag won't hurt them...

Wow. 50k on the trail? That's like 32 miles. You animal!

(I'm guessing that maybe you slipped an extra zero in there, right?)

Or he did it on foot, and used the bike to get there.

Huh? A trail race is run on foot. They are usually 5k (3.2 miles).
