    if you just stay on the chip seal rd it will bring you out on Ferguson rd then left till it goes gravel, over the hump and it passes Nichols rd just before the pavement going to Alpine (or Coon rd to Monroe)

    I've been on your route also, it takes a more northern route that Ts off Grimes.

    Looks like your getting that 1090 all decked out.

    Yeah - now if I could only get as good at riding it as I am at decking it out!

    Is this the route?

    The other route that goes out to Nichols Rd - that's on an old logging rail road grade at the north end. Kind of a cool road now that the 3" rock has settled in.

    Worn out that rear TKC80 yet?

    You mean the first map I showed?

    Nope. I think I'm at around 1100 miles, and last time I looked I still had plenty of tread. Thinking about what the next tire will be, though. I've used Mitas E-09's on the KLR and the DRZ and liked them. Might try the Mitas E-07.

    I really like the TKC70 rear with the TKC80 front for winter, then put on the TKC70 front for late summer/fall street rides. These all last a very long time, so the cost per mile is low.

    Ooh... a tire thread!
    Okay, not that, but since I just put a tkc70 on my bike I thought I'd chip in -
    I've been really impressed with it so far. No too many miles yet, but I've had it in a variety of conditions - including snow! and it seems to be a great all around performer. At least for the way I ride .
    I've had one on the front for a while now - I'd have felt more confident with the tkc80 in the mud and snow, but the 70 is working for now, and maybe it'll last longer than the 80.

Things should start approaching normality again at the brewery so I won’t be such an absentee host. In the mean time.....

    For the first time since Barry sheene, a Brit (Cal Crutchlow) is leading the MotoGP!!! It made me think back to hearing stories about Sheene, the undisputed chief badass of MotoGP during his era.

    My how the game , and world, have changed.... Barry was famous for the hole he drilled in his helmets. He used it to smoke one last cigarette on the grid before the race started. What a different age....
