    Yeah my place is only 2 miles from DN if you wanna haul the bike on a truck/trailer or we can meet 3 blocks down the street at a Food Lion if youre gonna ride the bike down. My place is near the corner of General Booth and Culver if you wanna look it up. Probably a good hour from you.

    It's doing pretty good, I am building it back up. I have been riding street for quite a while. I still have to take it easy on the off-road.

    Thanks for asking.

    Going to go have some fun with the richmond inmates on Sat.

    Take lots of pics!

    I was curious what that trials/technical course looks like. Home-made courses are always interesting.

    Edit: If it's cool, I'm bringing the TW up next time, perhaps we can ride together to a future one. I'd love a trials bike but they seem impossible to find around here.

    You could always take up competitive shooting. Plenty of that to do around here. :D

    I have thought about that but I don't think my desire to do it is worth the price of ammo these days. I enjoy unleashing the fury of my 10/22 for $5 but I start seeing $$$ every time I pull the trigger of my .45. I have started reloading but it still ain't cheap.

    I have been thinking a lot about jet ski fishing. Kind of the advrider of the fishing world. I do enjoy fishing and like my kayak but a jet ski would really give me some range and adventure but without quite as much hassle as a boat.

    A local guy has really taken this to the next level and has even started a tour guide/rental business. Since I have never been on jetski I am thinking of going out with him once to see if I like it.

    I really need to find something redeeming about living here. I am just miserable.

    ^ That looks absolutely awesome.

    I remember when that gentleman's photo was all over the news a year or two ago when he caught that whale jumping out of the water with the cargo ship in the background.

    I wonder how much of one his fishing charters costs...

    The Outdoors show is this weekend here at the Pavilion. He is giving a seminar on Sunday. I will probably go and check it out.

    I'll find out what it cost.

    Also,
    putting this back on the market.

    Cosmetically it is a 3/10 but it has always been reliable mechanically.

    Just put $600 worth of tires on it. Need to get $2000 for it.

    4 captains chairs and still room for a dual sport inside, or seating for 7 and pull a big trailer.

    150k on the odometer.

    Learning good stuff here everyday. :D I'm going to see if the wife is up for the outdoor show this weekend and a jetski/PWC sightseeing tour sometime in the future.

    And...

    I just bought a new to me truck and was wondering if anybody had a folding motorcycle loading ramp they were looking to sell. :deal

    They're always on sale at Cycle Gear. In fact, I can't say that I've ever paid sticker price for anything in there.
