    I can try, but I think I would have to remember the ride password to do it. Don't worry, your not missing much, just more great offroad fun that's probably nowhere as good as getting home on time. :evil

    Well call that done, and some time in the next two weeks (right after I put my bike back together (again)) I'll get the role call sorted.

    Nice door. :D

    I got the wheel bearings replaced in my rear trail wheel. Still on the list is tearing into the engine to replace the doohicky, check valves, beef up subframe, and design and fab up a skidplate.

    I think I have time. Better go grab a beer.

    Yes, time for me to get busy on the R too. I need to cut down the seat, swap the bars with the X, new mirrors, skid plate and hand guards. New tires go on Thursday. I sold the X yesterday so my plan B just went out the window :lol3

    I'm sorry to hear you wont be making it and really hope you recover quickly! :cry

    I've removed you from the Lookout City Sunset ride, if things change you'll alway have a spot.







    Isaac, Great photos!!! Looks like you and your dad covered lots of great sights! :clap
    Awesome, I wish I could get my dad out to DV.

    You're productuve. So far today I've gotten about a third of the way through mounting my first aid box and am in the early stages of my skid plate design. Losing a lot of time playing with my four year old.

    Luckily for me he has all of my social graces and great coordination. I don't think I have to worry too much about an over-indulgence in team sports.

    Hopefully today I can at least get the mock-up done on my skid plate. Kinda annoying how Kawasaki let the engine protrude under the frame rails.

    Thanks for that. You were on my list... you saved me a job. Typing with one hand plus a finger sucks :lol3

    I hope we can get together for a ride sometime. Whether it's in my backyard or yours...

    Fortunately my Husaberg suffered a lot less than I did... and the fact that I have a Rekluse meant I could pick it up and rick back to the group after my fall.
