    dang. we were up there riding at the same time. I didnt hardly see another soul though...and none of the stupid roads up there had signs any more, just the signposts left. I got so lost....then my chain jumped off so i just fixed it in the middle of the road and decided to head back toward home. cops were out in mass on saturday.

    I think i know where the new "secret" RR bridge tag is but im not positive. guess ill have to ride up and check...

    Yep, but you better be prepared to be gone all day long if you tag along on a fullmonte ride.:deal None of that "My wife wants me home by 3pm" stuff. I've sent people home for pulling that shit.:nod

    I was up kinda near there the other day. Any of you guys ever been to Autocyclers between Englewood and Madisonville? (http://autocyclers.com/) Not much DS stuff up there but a lot of bike part and pieces and farkles if you dont mind digging. Its like an indoor boneyard. I was up there looking for TS stalks and handlebar switches.

    I have no idea if/when I'll be able to sneak out and get that tag.

    Python, this is up in your neck of the woods i think...

    W.E. ROCK in Dayton this weekend? anybody?

    All the bikes that they deem beyond repair get relegated to another big room in the shop to be robbed for parts.
