    Go to SC to help do some home repairs for the inlaws and look what followed me home.
    A playmate for the Transalp.
    How many more weeks before soccer season ends?

    Sweet looking ride that is the correct color for a proper motorcycle. I like that 800cc twin motor. Very nice!

    Detail please. Cough it up!

    And yes, for anyone keeping track, Evan and I survived our attempt at an IBA BunBurner 1500 this weekend. We essentially ate for 35-1/2 hours while taking rides periodically between the various restaurants for about 1,600 miles.

    Evan will post up some details I'm sure. It was fun but I am TIRED!

    Thanks all. Yes, it was Kalonji's bike from the Flea Market. 2007 BMW F800S. Mid size sport tourer. Looking forward to getting her out on a ride with everyone.
    Though not a 1500 mile butt burner ride :)

    I thought about you guys as I was coming across rt.10 on my way back from Houston on Friday. Wondered if you wound up coming down that way. I vaguely remember hearing about oysters in New Orleans.... :freaky

    OK fellas from last Thursday's Hawthornes meet. I joined.

    I decided to at least start a thread on my trip that I am leaving out on tomorrow. Headed to the beach for my Atlantic water start. My buddy will join me Tuesday or Wednesday and then we will head out. I will try to keep the trip updated with pictures.

    Do people use their names on here or do they just sign their username?

    englishc

    Go ahead and hackle me! Yes I am new to this.

    Welcome!

    I suggest using your full real name, social security number and bank account password.

    Enjoy your trip - post up a link here so we can all follow along!

    The feejer is in good hands. It seems to be having the time of its life.

    Help an idiot:

    I pulled the battery out and lost one of the stupid rectangular nuts that slides into the battery post.
    Please tell me someone knows where I can get another without resorting to grinding down the sides of a nut to slip in there.
    AutoZone, NAPA and Tractor Supply were a no go.
