    Contrary to my signature, I reluctantly volunteered to help my sister move some stuff. Since I'm the only one with a truck. Besides, the 990 just got upgraded and is still at ESP. Sorry, I'm out this weekend:cry

    Yes, a Sunday DS ride in the greater LA area could be good.

    Indeed. Can't ride Sunday (that's an old post) but I'm heading out with Earthrider for a hill climbing class on saturday. We're meeting at Ventura BMW Motos 8AM. I really like laine's classes, especially on the Valdeez. Come join us.

    Isn't there a fee to join Laine's class? I think they are doing hill climbing, which would be good practice.

    Welcome home. I'd be totally up for a dirt ride this weekend if your plans change (wife bails) unless I get the 690 Duke I've been drooling over this week.
