    I too have an 03 dodge and went for the whole death wobnle kill with Eastern Off Road after 250k. Perfect now and the parts are way mor substantial than stock. Expensive yes but no more butt clenching running 64 weest to good riding.

    New outer tie rods this morning. No more side to side play. Drivers side was pretty bad. It’s 2WD so less complicated. Used for taking trash, getting hay and hauling a horse trailer. Only 133k miles

    Did take the Vstrom out for a spin before dark. A nice cool ride.

    I rode a bit today too. After the initial gear up it was a nice back road day here on the shore. Hopefully this winter is like last. Never needed the heated gear.

    Back riding a year now. CB500x. Did some runs up in WV. Looking for someone to ride with once in a while. If anyone is interested. Out of Williamsburg. If looking for a dirt bike Charles City Dirt riders have used bikes for sell. Love tight twisty lane and half Roads and weekend trips + into West VA if anyone interested.

    I plan an April run myself into the great state of WV. If you want to do a local ride in and around Hampton Roads, Charles City, Surry County, New Kent, Mathews County, King and Queen County, James City County etc etc or anywhere you want to ride let me know. We can meet up. A Saturday or Sunday run locally would be fun. Any day above 50 degrees haha. Going by yourself all time gets old.

    I don't ride locally much, but keep an eye on the thread.

    There is usually a new years day ride. I might get out for that.

    We have to repeat that some day (with a "light" small bike) - was a fun weekend!! Last S500 I again didn't make it to the rocky run area even though we got an early speedy start that Sunday...

    OK then...

    Who's up for a NYD ride?
    Same deal as 3(?) years ago.
    Meet up at WaWa on J Clyde between 9 and 10AM
    Ride up 17, detour around the Gloucester back roads then up to Matthews/Saluda/Kilmarnock.
