Heal up quick Kelly, sounds like you are well on your way.

10mm Auto, because it might stop a Honey Badger!

That was great Tony, we had not seen it before.

So what are the old guys doing

Well old guys its fathers day weekend. Anyone riding?

The Ktoom is still down and dont expect it to be up before the weekend. Just cant get it up as fast as I use to.

I would venture out on the Vstrom but its too damn hot. Even riding its like turning a hair dryer (on full heat) into your face.

Dawn or sunset patrol may be the only answer.

I don't always ride street bikes, but when I do I prefer VStroms

You rang?

Oh hell yes I'm most definitely IN. I'm an Official Old-Timer, after all, certified by Vic himself. And like Pete, I'm a Registered Independent too. Strong leanings toward the libertarian end of the spectrum though.

We need to have ourselves a POGs rally. We can mix Metamucil/Kraken martinis and release the...well never mind.

Hey Buzz I'm diggin that sigline

I gots me some parts comin in for the DR. Hopefully before Friday. If they do get here I'll be installing them either day this weekend - still have the TA that can bring my old fat ass anywhere tho. I'm likin Blackwater at oh-butcrack thirty. Maybe even jump in to cool off and then air dry on the way back. Something not as lengthy as our last beast ride though...Maybe DRscoopster can lead the way! Anyone in for a POGs Blackwater slowburn?

TONY!! Welcome aboard ya old bastage! Hope the KLR is humming along and you're makin' more memories up in them thar hills!

Havin' a blast up here, Pete. Rode the Colonial Pkwy this AM, stopped at the Yorktown Victory Monument and made this pic. Viva la libertad, ya know.


Dunno why that date shows as yesterday, guess I need to recalibrate my camera again. I'm gettin senile, but I definitely remember being in Yorktown this morning. I think it got all the way up to 80 degrees today here in southern VA and like FBM says, that's NO

And yessir that old KLR is humming right along, I'm gettin 60MPG riding the backroads, that's a benefit of running 4K RPM. The other benefit is that she doesn't use any oil at all when I run at or below 4K. And that's saying something for a KLR.
