    Just word of mouth so far, I thought my brother in-law was getting it so I told rick to hold off posting it. In-law backed out and rick hasn't had time to properly advertise. PM bluethunder (rick) or buckshot92 (nick) for more details.

    Your bike took a little nappypoo....:huh
    And was thoughtful enough to toss the side bag so you can get in to it with ease...

    Glad both you and bike are OK...

    It was great to see you.. :smooch

    After 4 years of Patented Stich' Crotch Leak in heavy rains I bought a pair of AD-1's and have been loving them.

    Officials in a Maryland county with the highest number of motorcycle fatalities are now using a helicopter to track down speeding riders in an effort to reduce accidents.
    Prince George's County's Aviation Unit flies hundreds of feet in the air, tracking motorcycle riders who can reach speeds of up to 150 mph.
    "The traffic lane will be clear and the next thing you know, a cyclist will be coming up so fast that the car doesn't see him in time," Lt. Anthony Cline, Commander of the county's Aviation Unit said.
    Operation Road Runner is an effort by the county to decrease dangerous, sometimes fatal accidents that can be caused by ground pursuits.
    "Most of the bikes can outrun out cruisers, so having the aircraft is a valuable asset," Cline said.
    During a ride along with News4, the unit was able to arrest a motorcycle rider driving a stolen bike.
    "We allowed out officers to back off and conduct it safely and the final result was an apprehension," Cline said.

    Finally got back home this Tuesday. I was on the road for almost a month, a little of 5000 miles on the bike then spent another 2 weeks wondering around New England with my family.

    Guess its time to think about going back to work and start being responsible again :D

    couple of teaser pics until I get the RR going.

    Thought I would share this from the XRL thread.....

    I think we may have gotten a little off trail here. The problem in our modern 4 stroke era has stifled bench racing everywhere. In the 2 stroke days, throwing in a legitimate 2 stroke "like" sound was relatively easy and never lost a step. Of course we had 4 strokes back then but also 2 things were true as well. Most 4 stroke riders did not ride offroad, therefore no great stories or they were still on the trail while the cool 2 stroke stories were told.
    Now I know that not all of us can replicate a 2 stroke sound but in conversation rarely did someone stop you and say, "What was that? Where you on a 2 stroke or 4 stroke?"
    It is a sad sad time, soon there will be electric bikes. All sound effected stories will be lost.
    Please, if you ride a 2 stroke, continue to tell lies about your ride including sounds. If you ride a 4 stroke....maybe you shouldn't tell riding stories using sound effects. (boring). Ever hear a Bicycle guy tell a story...nothing...no sound effects. If you have a multi cylinder bike, forget the sounds, you will never make it right.


    :norton what the heck is Norton for anyway?
