    brent, good seeing you there. was wondering what you had in that box. my guess it's from nomadic.

    yeah, now that my guzzi lemans is gone, my eyes start prowling for guzzis. i like the v750.

    great to see lots of peeps checking out the seat concepts booth. lendon is a nice guy, biggie and i were there for 20 minutes or so talking about seats, especially a custom built for eric. also been looking for a rear rack for the xr400 and sc have it right in front of my face. made by nomadic, nice and a good deal....:clap a good handle for my riding buddies to grab on when lifting the bike.....:lol3

    http://nomadic-racks.com/

    [​IMG] :rofl




    later, biggie and i ran on to this guy, ty davis. sounds familiar but don't know him, i know there is a ktm farkle that sito put on the 950 from zip ty racing. rear chain tension adjuster....good stuff

    later realized who he is after eric pm me this linky

    These were definitely demo models. All you needed for a test ride was to sign your name on a line of coke and promise them stardom. Brooke Hogan was walking out of the Yard House when we got there and then went straight to that yacht.

    It would be a whole lot easier if I just put Duy's face on the girl on the left. I don't think Duy would complain if he had his face on that girls body.

    Thinking of putting a ride together this coming Sat out in Mojave. Lior should have my 530's electrical fixed buy then & I have been itching to go play.
    My plan so far:
    Mike's Roadhouse at 7:00-8:00 breakfast
    Head down the road a bit just past jawbone station and park the trucks at the staging area. My plan is to hit some of the fun stuff on the "Nowwhat Loop" and work on some of my rusty skills. This place has a little of everything. I don't plan on being too far from the truck. Head out for a few hours then head back to the truck for a quick lunch and a beer then back out. I plan on being back to the trucks before dark. Conditions should be good with the storm coming in this week:evil

    If someone has a better plan please speak up.

    Nice....rain is coming.....:freaky.....

    Sito...last week Toast and I came back via the wash that runs just west of the "Start Hill" by the trucks...you can bypass the hill completely if anyone wants and take the wash all the way to the back side and then loop around to the tunnel...wet sand and rocks but still easier than the climb....
