    Hi Scotty! Rode it on down to Chester via Devils Den but that's about all of the dirt so far. Did get on some gravel while riding Route 66 but that's about it. Planning on riding Route 66 all the way to the Pacific Ocean next! Anybody wanna go? It'll be a blast with plenty of food stops of course and a few museums and old gas stations too. Can't wait to stand on the Santa Monica pier and look out on the ocean.

    After waiting since August for Michelin to import the 17" T63 tires, I decided I couldn't wait any longer. This weekend, I'm gonna install a Shinko 244 set on my F650. I have a 19" 244 on the front that will be replaced after 9,700 miles. It still has tread and I'll keep it as a spare.

    You don't know how lucky you were. One wrong turn and you could have been at Docs.

    YES! That is the trip we are talking about taking next summer - 6th in our "See America Tours". Although we were talking about maybe doing the Wisconsin/Minnesota/Upper Michigan next. But Route 66 has been in the plans for a while.

    they did me real well on my smaller bikes, the xt225, and dr350.

    Hopefully they do as well on a slightly larger bike.

    If I could fit a rear on my GS I would honestly probably try one.

    I was made aware by Gus on our last ride that my brake light was not working so I fixed it this morning along with finishing my sub frame repair.

    An oil change and new filters this afternoon and I'm ready to ride. Anyone want to venture out this weekend (weather allowing)?

    I might be able to get away some this weekend, if I can make some headway the rest of this week.

    I'd like to tag along. When and where - give me time to come from Siloam without having to travel in the dark either way.
