    There is a guy on the square in Collierville that has Benelli, KTM, and I think Gas Gas or TM, maybe he is getting Guzzi too.

    The only other xr650r(motarded) I've ever seen around memphis was coming up 55N about 2 months ago doin 85mph on the highway:wink:
    He pulled off into southaven headin east.
    I asked my buddy who was drivin(truck) to catch up but, he
    didnt want to get a ticket.:lol3

    So,do tell,where is this mysterious buddy with the(motarded?) 650R?
    Where does he ride? Did his beloved honda blow up?:eek1
    Does he know he has xr kin:freaky residing near coldwater?:lol3

    Tony,

    It is not a motard. It is plated for street and we ride quite a bit. Well that was until it died. Sad story actually, he was on his way out to my house in Somerville to do an oil change. It must have been a little low on oil and he rapped it out in top gear and boom! It is now getting built at Fletcher's. It is getting cam, valves, head work the whole nine yards.

    He lives in east Memphis and I actually did tell him that he has a "XR Brother". He was pretty stoked! He doesn't frequent this site, but he does hang on TT a lot. His log-in is J_T.

    He should have it back soon. We are gonna break it in before doing the TN section of the TAT the first weekend in Oct. So maybe we can get together and do a ride!

    That's very disheartening that my brothers bike had a heart attack.:cry
    Is he getting it bumped up to a (680?) or keeping it stock?
    So, if that motard wasnt his then...........theres more kin
    around here!!!!!:clap We are halfway to a family reunion!:lol3

    "My Favorite Place" is tomorrow night.

    "Bike Night" might not be completely rained out, it's clearing up Downtown, but I'm sure attendance will be down signficantly.

    I forgot to mention that I had went to the Bass Pro shop while I was in Memphis a couple of weeks ago, and I saw a beautiful white BMW parked next to us when we came out of the store. Belong to anyone here?

    Low turnout. What happened to everyone?

    Food was great. I don't know why I didn't get pics... fantastic presentation. if a bit expensive.

    What I did get pics of was the aftermath. Ol' X left the lights on his SUV (:poser ) on.

    Attempt number one:

    Attempt number two:

    When my friend and I geared up to ride--you know, ride my motorcycle--home, AAA was on the way. Hope it all turned out ok.

    G, glad I got to meet you after all these months.

    AAA had to hook two batteries up to her to get her to turn over. Put the charger on her when I got home and there was a red "trouble" light on when I went out to go to work this morning. Looks like I'm gonna need a new battery.

    The reason the battery's dead is I don't drive my truck far enough (Less than 3 miles a day) to charge the battery back to full after I start it. When I really have anywhere to go, I ride -- you know, my motorcycle -- so often that it looks like I'm going to have to keep a battery tender on my truck to keep the battery topped off. :lol3

    Nice to meet you last night as well.

    Nah, don't.

    AAA got there about 10:30p. Apparently they were pretty busy last night.

    Tony,

    I'm heading to the coast with the family on Friday for the holiday weekend so I won't be out too terribly late on Thursday. Dinner and a cold one or two or three and that should about do it for me.
