    I blew a turn on my TTR and low-sided, nothing major but it shredded the elbow around the pad just enough to ruinate the jacket. I bought it off another inmate super cheap so it wasn't any big loss but I liked the jacket while I had it.

    No damage to me at all.

    Well my life kinda came off the rails (my daughter broke her ankle and I had a kidney stone) after jgunsett offered me his bike, but I finally picked it up yesterday.

    It was really nice to deal with jgunsett as he was very patient with all of delays due to my woes. He also brought it to Upper Sandusky for me so that I did not have to go clear to Van Wert to pick it up.

    Nothing like a kidney stone to give you the proper motivation to stay properly hydrated!

    Nice Mike.

    We were on the edge of our seats wondering if you had gotten it....I am piecing together a big bike loop right now that is around 200 miles of gravel and twisty road awesomeness and has Peggy Sues right in the middle.....We might have to prerun it next week and break that baby in.

    If anyone is interested in a mint 650 vstrom in yellow with top case and about 40k miles, send me a pm






    Not to shoot myself in the foot but it could use a taller saddle and bars for you

    Since everyone is buying and selling...

    I'm going to be looking to get rid of my work truck soon. 2008 Chevy 2500HD ex cab with 84k miles, gas engine, 4x4, and I can include a snowplow and salt spreader. Looking to sell it pretty reasonable to move it. I'm getting out of the snow plowing business and want to move up to a 4 door truck. If anyone is interested, lemme know.

    It was laid down very gently, about 160 times.

    :lol3

    As a loving owner, I usually broke the fall by being under it.

    was awesome


    NC28 from Franklin, NC to Deals Gap is a total blast. Wayah Rd is really fun too but the road surface could be better.

    We always stay at Fontana Village, right on 28, a little south of the dragon.

    It's a great way to get warmed up for your first run up the hill.

    A friend of mine just moved down in that area: Murphy NC.

    If you follow 74/19/129 south you'll run into it. Gonna try to make it down to see him sometime this season.
