    RiderIN, thanks for the feedback on the PN-60. Have you used it yet to follow routes? I feel like I could use a few pointers there. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    Fun day of riding today...rode down to Cafe 58 with NickG and met up with oPaulo. I had my heart set on some pie but they were closed. I was on the Wee and Nick on the 800GS. Paul was on his 400 and talked us into doing some riding at Moto Supreme. He was nice and took us on the easy stuff since we were on the piggies. Nick should have some video up soon and I think Paul took some pics, I of course only took one because I was too busy sliding the Wee around in the perfect dirt conditions.

    Yes rode the Wee up and around the moto track and a couple other longer climbs.

    Happy Thanksgiving to all! :dg

    I think I may try to get down to MotoSupreme this weekend for some practice with my race bike. I'll tap into the system here and let you all know when I plan on going in case anyone wants to join.

    Tim was nice enough not to mention my stupidity. The foggy lense thing and not checking up enough before a 30mph or so corner.....well there were friction issues and 40 or so feet later my Wee was quite mad and me. I wasn't really happy with myself. Thankful for good riding gear. Timmy I ended up with a couple friction burns on my knees and no holes in the pants....whacky.

    Exactly it's my same method for tightening bolts.......tighten till it snaps and then back it off a 1/4 turn.

    And a Happy Thanksgiving from the edge of the Yellowwood. Last night I picked up my new (to me) Suzuki DR650 at Thornton's over in Versailles and this morning and afternoon I cruised about 50 miles of gravel roads in eastern Monroe and western Brown Counties. The weather was perfect.

    Tim aptly described the bike. First gear is indeed a little tall but the bike pulls very strong from the bottom and is pretty comfortable. Looking at it I figure it is just an overgrown XT225. AIr cooled and carbureted it is just a basic bike. But it seems perfect for running area backroads. I took it up to 80 on a stretch of 46 and it still had some room to go.

    I had the shop put on a new set of Dunlop 606's before I picked it up and I was pleased with the way they performed on the road and hard pack gravel. If the weather holds this weekend I'll try to find something a little more challenging.

    I keep seeing references to Moto Supreme. Where exactly is it? I know where Cafe 58 is. It sounds like it is somewhere close to that. Can anyone provide me a location and a description.

    If anyone is riding around Monroe or Brown County this weekend I'd love to hear about it. I have no internet access at my place (I'm in town at the moment) but can get email on my iPhone. Drop me a line at bmwlou@aol.com if you are heading out this weekend.

    In any case, I hope everyone gets in some miles this weekend.
