    Chris, I'm with theses guys!:clap

    Bottom line, don't be stupid cuz it's probably going to involve a couple :muuttJust don't bust yourself up again :deal. Like MWS said, "If the alternative is not riding...."


    If you don't try it, you'll always regret it. GO FOR IT!!! I don't think you'll have any shortage of willing riding partners :D .

    edit: of course, if you drop it, they'll probably take pictures before they help you pick the bike up....

    Great afternoon for a little ride.

    Seems like every time there's a big storm there's one less road down at Camp Ellis

    I'm with Mike....what ever it takes to get out there riding. FWIW Honda has released an entire line of bikes based around that power plant...I am assuming it is a solid mill.

    Order the bike, ride the bike....enjoy your life:clap

    What ? - Are you some kind of trouble maker ????

    I didn't even get a chance to check it on Sat. - too busy digging out.
    Had to work until noon on Sunday and managed a go at Moody on the outgoing tide.
    It was pretty good. Head high, some bigger. Fast and with some energy, and the best part was there was plenty of time between sets to get out, which was especially good because I can not remember the water ever being so cold.
    I had a real nice brand new wet suit on and I was getting dizzy just from duck diving.
    The River looked/was really nice in the late afternoon but I didn't go out there.

    And just so I don't piss off the landlubbers - This I like v

    Thanks for the encouragement! I'm convincing myself that the bike is a good idea. When I sold my GS (to a Maineiac, IIRC) I gave/sold almost everything with it, cover, bags, boots, jackets, and so on. So, I'm starting to price out the new bike and the gear I'll need to ride it. Its not cheap, but with some creativity I should be able to swing the whole shebang. So....

    I forgot what I wanted to ask. :lol3. Does that slick Honda have 17s, and if so, what brand are those tires? I loved my TKCs and would like to think about something like that for the NC700 which also runs 17s f/r.

    No . . . I got a few days of riding in while I was in AZ, but that trip was mostly about getting the GS out there and getting ready for the trip that starts next week. :evil Although, the little January blast across the country was kind of fun. :D

    nearly spit out a mouthful of beer at reading that one T!
    (but I am often using the heck out of the jacket on warmer days. It's not really big enough to layer as well as my "regular" riding jacket.)
