    Hey Erik. Just patiently waiting for my bike to arrive and trying to talk the wife into a helmet cam so I can record some of the crazy stuff I've been seeing here. How's it going back in DC?

    She won't get here until 02 Aug. She's been hanging out in SoCal with her family. But it's a pretty cool place so far so I'm hoping she digs it. You work that deal in WV yet? I sure hope it works out for you.

    Yep I saw the BIG balls SMIB post. All's good here, still have all the booty you gave me, but need to get rid of it soon else I'll look like a hoarder :lol3. Unless a SMIB or CAT wants it I may throw some of it on the free to military thread or dontate to support ADV.

    Looking good Todd; can't wait for the bike to get there so you can take us exploring on less traveled roads. I especially loved that picture of the supreme court located next to magicland! :lol3

    Thanks Denis. The bike was supposed to arrive on 8/13 but now it's been pushed to 9/5. Bastards! Customs will take another 10 days so it's now looking like mid-September.:cry

    That wouldn't surprise me at this point. Our UAB went to Dakar via Dubai for some reason. Not a big fan of Hildrup these days.

    Yeah, Kenya's got it going on these days. I didn't see the path, but that's what the shipping guy said when I asked why it took almost three weeks. We got it a few weeks ago.

    Muscle beach. I guess the new guys start with the car drums and the big dogs move on up to the dually bar

    Hey Brother!

    Looks like an interesting place. No doubt it'll look better on two wheels and from outside the city. Take care and watch your 6.
