    Sunday's weather looks so much worse now. I'm going down tonight to ride tomorrow. Don't imagine I'll be around Sunday!

    Anyone down to ride tomorrow? Going to be around peaks of otter.

    By the way, do you happen to remember what road we were riding when you went off the side? I definitely want to run that one again!

    As a hunter I can tell you that the hunting pressure is going to be very high this Saturday, dogs will be chasing deer in most counties so... watch your ass out there.

    The road number is 317a. Man I wish I could go too, but the wife doesn't think the dog and a bottle of whiskey are "appropriate" babysitters. I say bullshit, but she controls the pussy, so she makes most of the rules


    And I voted. That's a cool looking bird, what kind is it?

    No worries guys.

    Thanks to those who came out. I had a good time and for my first time at The Zone I was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. Driving by that place almost every day I assumed it was a shit hole but its actually not to bad. Might do some more events there.

    Maybe he was heading down to Hampton Roads Harley Davidson to swap. He jumps from dealer to dealer to make it. I saw a HD clothing commercial on TV last night. With Santa so that's his payoff. :lol3

    Well, I got clearance from the doc to do some off road riding. I blasted every dirt road in Suffolk and IOW Sunday. Then did a little semi-legal excursion out behind the house. I've never dealt with a major injury like this before. Its really strange to get back on the bike. I have zero confidence right now. I'm sure that will come back though.

    So, I'm still fighting this damned head shake at speed. I thought I had it completely licked, then I jump on the bike Sunday,and its back. Its at a higher speed, around 75MPH, but its back. Riding the gravel at 80-90MPH with the front end going everywhere isn't what I call confidence inspiring, especially with only 1 good arm and shoulder. I think the front tire has to go. I didn't get that wobble until I put this tire on, so I'm ditching it. If anyone wants a Pirelli rally pro 90/90-21 hit me up. It has about 300 miles on it. I make no guarantees as to the tire. But, its free to a good home, just come get it.

    Along that same line, GPR is running a $100 off sale until the end of the year. Anyone have any experience with their steering dampers?

    I hardly see any adventure type bikes. Yesterday I sped past 2 GS's on the HOV heading back to Hampton from the beach. Wierd!! A red 1200 and a 1200 adventure I think (had an ADV sticker on the left pannier).

    Nice change from all the cruisers and sport bikes I see all the time.:D

    Merry Christmas everybody!
