    I'd rather do that than the BMW Fag rally at biltmore (I think its the same week end and near the same place) I already planned on being off , Maybe we could turn all the fire flies loose on the BMW fags...:lol3:lol3:lol3


    EDIT:
    Oh wait, We're not gathering fire flys are we... we are just a gathering of tree huggers and hippies, never mind then....:D:rofl:evil

    No seriously, I'd still go:deal

    I'm a BMW owner (well actually mom owns it, I just get to enjoy it), there's a difference.

    not all BMW owners are fags, But all BMW fags own BMW's..:deal:deal

    Knda like the harly guys.


    I tend to hang with the cool BMW crowd..
    Enduro dan
    GS waeve
    Splits lanes and sawing logz (and their group)
    DenisSMS (former BMW Fag):lol3
    ammocanGS

    are a few that come to mind

    and anyone else that isn't emersed in being so brand loyal that they insist there is nothing beter than their particular brand (IE BMW FAG, Harley Guys, KTM dudes)

    Its all about the riding not the Brand....

    It's that you ride, Not What you ride.

    I think I proved I am far from brand loyal at this point.

    I have opposite plans as you tomorrow. I'll have my kids until late afternoon tomorrow. If plans change, let me know. I'll be out on two wheels tomorrow late afternoon/early evening.

    Okay. I'm planning on dropping my kids off around 3-4pm in Benton. I'll then be back home around 4-5 and heading out very soon after. I'll text you.

    I'm thinking about heading to Lake Ariel to try Kundlas BBQ. I've heard they're fantastic.

    Moving the lights up to the nose tripled the output. It's still not as bright as on the Klr. But I think it's the fact the vstrom has suck great lights to begin with that the contrast is not there. I might reshoot this video where I did the Klr video. The trees really show how much light they give out. This video was in an open lot.

    Sounds good!

    Hmmmm. This is making me consider moving my lights from the forks up higher. I've actually been thinking about buying one model 60 to mount on the nose with the high beam bypass. It might make sense to move all of them up there. Besides, they'd be more protected in a tip over. Every time I've dropped my bike I've bent the mount. It was no problem bending it back and the lights were undamaged, but keeping it higher under the front fairing would save me the hassle.

    The higher they are the better they work. I can now say this from experience. Before you spend any cash, try yours higher. They work great.

    IIRC they had just sunk something and it was crowded the surface wasn't bad put about 10' down it was bad.
    I use to recovery dive and I quit when I found a kid the same age as my daughter in the under tow of a dam on the Perky at Goodrich dam in Oaks. I was safety diver after that no more recovery for me.

    I'm PADI certified Open Water, and it's been years since I've been in the water.
    I pretty much have everything except tanks, compass and computer.
    I have a dive light, but need to get a battery for it.
    No clue what the difference is between primary and secondary dive lights though.
    I actually have two HEEDs (Helicopter Emergency Egress Device), which are basically spare air tanks.
    I'd be interested in the refresher course, depending on when and where.
    And I'd be interested in the advanced course as well provided I get the refresher and can get off from work.
