    I wouldn't worry about covering it up, a nice set of cases will do that. Ever see a stock Transalp muffler? Redefines Fugly

    I rode a boxer once, sounded like something was chewing it's way through the gas tank :huh The skid plate on my 640 makes it sound like it's trying to eject the connecting rod. Take it off and the motor gets quiet.

    Thank you all. I cut out of work early and I am going to take a small ride and then go to a cookout with some friends and let the kids make smores tonight on the fire.

    How do you remember everyone's birfday around here, Larry? Maybe I could give you my kid's birth dates then have you call me a week in advance to remind me. :lol3

    I would appreciate any recommendations the board may have for re-boring services here in Columbus. I'd like to keep it local.

    Thanks,

    MeefZah is pretty boring, at least that's what MeefZette says.

    Nice ride today, I never take enough pictures, it's to much trouble to stop, take off gloves, all that stuff, I think I'll get a cheap camera and hang it on a lanyard around my neck and just stick it in a jacket pocket. Anyway here are a couple;

    Yellow Water Road in NW Guernsey County. Sign says unmaintained, travel at own risk,

    One of the locals who was surprised we got through without knobbies. If you ride it, better to go west to east, it's tough to come up out and turn onto Broadhead Road. You really can't stop, and you cant see if anyone is coming. This picture is looking west from Ash Road. It's not very long, but it's steep and was very soft in places.

    He said the road grader had been down in there this week fixing some flood damage, road had been closed.

    This is on a gravel road over by Egypt Valley, they probably don't hold the record for most yard ornaments, knick-knacks, what-nots, in the state, but they have to be in the discussion. The pictures don't do it justice. There was stuff everywhere.

    The stuff was in islands, and there were a lot of islands.

    Saw this scary thing yesterday, glad I didn't meet him in a corner, I think it's a deal to trim around power lines, this was up in Tuscarawas County,

    If you all only knew how bad Larry is at dates... Larry, is it usually a month, or a week that you show up before your doc appointments?

    Facebook is good for something!

    Yea,if it weren`t for Facebook I wouldn`t even know when my Birthday was.

    And Mark,your anniversary is the day before your food starts to taste funny....make a note of it.:deal

    Yeah, nice ride for sure! We hit a lot of gravel I had never been on right here in my own backyard.
    Yellow Water Rd. was definitely the highlight. My nearly new Scorpion Trail rear broke loose a couple times, but with a little throttle control I was able to maintain momentum with no drama. Roads like this are good incentive to get the DR on the road. Like vivid said, it's not very long, but if you're in the area and like to get a little dirty, check it out.
    I'm usually not too shutter happy either, but here's a shot I got of vivid catchin' some shade.
