    Does anybody wanna buy my DR350? Cam ate into its journals, so it needs a cam, head, cover, rockers. Have sourced them for a few hundred bucks, but don't know if I have the time or money to fix it up. Lots of other projects that want attention even more than it does.

    Price uh.. negotiable? It would come with a good amount of spares, including a 400cc big bore piston, 5.8 gal tank, stock tank, luggage racks, and could come with luggage bags....

    Here's some video of playing at home to improve this post. Y'all need to come play with me!



    And as for racing status? well I raced the Ironman GNCC .. I hit the dirt before the second turn and then chewed my way from about 30th in Vet B to about 10th in 1 lap. Stayed around there till my rear tube blew. First race in a long time without a bib. Going back to bibs ASAP. I was way out of shape as expected and now I'm super sore and not sure if my body will be healed up in time for the Moose Run this weekend or not!!

    The Springfield Milers are planning on coming thru Carrolton on 108 around 10:15-10:30 Sunday morning, solo650. I will plan on meeting them there also, so if you want to meet me there, we can hook up with the group and ride on to Brussels for lunch. They are watching the weather forecast, though, as right now it is talking about possible afternoon thunderstorms.

    That looks like fun. But I'm not comfortable enough to throw my pig of a DR650 around like that.

    ^^^^^^^^ but are you comfortable throwing a DR650 around? Remember it has the noon Smelly approved FCR on it.
