    Haha. I have some strawberry 2 stroke oil I run in my golf cart. I bet that would taste awesome. No Turkey inside I rode to play paddle tennis yesterday and had no Idea I had to bring the roaster home!

    I don't care if it was tiddly-winks...if you got to ride your motorcycle on Thanksgiving, you're cool in my book. Sure beats the hell out of eating way too much, drinking too many beers, then shouting at the damned refs on the TV who can't seem to tell when a running back's knee is down. Yet another Thanksgiving ruined by the Detroit Lions.

    It's only natural! haha


    I don't know man, Tiddly-winks is kind of pushing it. I'll let him slide on the paddle ball thing, but we have to draw the line somewhere for him to retain his man status. :rofl

    Well, I take back my last statement. Looks like it's all dudes, and they are into it. Could probobly make that a career too.

    If you can slide an XR 600 sideways through a corner, cloaked in Carhartt's finest, and take out 5 riders, you're one cool mofo :

    While carrying my lunch in the cooler-sack on the rear fender :lol3

    He'll, just being able to kick start that cold-blooded bastage on an icy winter morning was enough of an accomplishment for me. The sideways action....I was just showing off for the camera, that's all.

    Anyone interested in getting into some dirt. Maybe a one day trip to St Helen. Monday is looking even better.

    Sunday high of 51 down here and 43 in West Branch. Looks like rain in West Branch though, of course all that might change yet . .

    Hey Randy, you in for another ride ? I know a perfect place for your 990 Adventure, it'll be great, i promise :D

    I've got some 2 yr old DOT approved knobbies that are up for grabs. The front has about 60% tread left and the rear is in the 40% to 50% range. I put on new ones for this year's U.P. trip so I don't need these. If any of you guys who like to ride gravel roads would like to give the sand a try (on the cheap), offer up a 6-pack of something brewed in Michigan and we'll call it a fair trade.

    I might be in for a ride this weekend. Probably take the 530 though, so I have an advantage over Bruno :-)
