    I know. These days all of you guys are 2 or 3 kicks and we're good to go. I just wanted to take the opportunity to poke fun at the Honda guys. Most of that post was directed at someone's older Honda he was riding, before his recent upgrade....

    Upgrade, schmupgrade... on a cold morning, a big bore single wants to sleep - wether it's a 15+ year old XR600R or a XR650R that's half that age. I had some time to become more familiar with the XR650R on a recent 3-day ride... I've determined that the Big Red Pig and I have a lot in common.

    We're both too heavy.
    We both drink too much.
    And we're next to impossible to get started in the morning.
    :lol3

    Marco lives just North of Mt. Pleasant. I would assume it would be stored there.

    How is the weather Aaron? Are you excited to ride Death Valley at the end of the month? I bet the temperature will be perfect that time of year. I wish I could go!:1drink

    Hopefully it won't be too hot... 80s this week.

    It did rain/snow a couple days ago so hopefully the dust will be at a minimum in Baja this weekend.

    Pioneer Tennessee ride is coming up;

    "This is a new location for us with a lot more off-road riding opportunities. We will have 2 routes laid out for regular dual sport"

    I need a supermoto rim setup for my 500 so i can ride some of those sweet twisties down there too.

    You goin to this Bruno? I'm riding along w/ Jimmie and Deb, but we're going to the original place. I'm bringing the GS and EXC w/ K270's on it. Hopefully, we'll run into you guys down there.
