    Tim,
    Great day but have an afternoon meeting. Might want to check out the MRT as far as Covington and see if there are any problems. Let me know if you find anything.
    Heading for Jax probably on Monday or Tuesday, eat lunch with an old professor on Tuesday or Sunday depending on when I leave. You've still time to change your mind re:Battlefield 1000! My aux fuel cell won't be ready in time for the Battlefield 1000. I wanted to test it out gravity feed before the Cape Fear 1000, but it'll have to be later.
    Ride Safe,
    Robert

    Sat. and Sunday are both going to be above 60 degrees. Anyone interested in a ride either day?

    Suggest an agenda or meet at Brads in Moscow and go from there.

    Let me know your thoughts.:uhoh

    I'd love to go as well but my weekend is tied up helping my son build a kitchen island.

    I'm guessing the time consuming part is renting the jackhammer and digging the moat...

    That part is already done and the wood floor is installed. Only the cabinetry and door building remains:freaky

    Still thinking about it Robert, I may join you for the ride. I have a riding buddy that lives near Daytona whom I've not seen in years...

    I'll keep you posted.

    Doesn't look like I'll make this one Robert, it's the crowds not the ride. I get a little claustrophobic around that many people. Thank you for checking back though,

    Weather for Sunday show 40% chance of rain, isolated thunder, I say we meet at Brads in Moscow at 9:00 am and ride to Chickasaw or Slicks. I am open to any other ideas!

    Sound off if you are going so we know who to wait for.:clap

    Well, now it looks like 90% chance of rain on Sunday. I can not make it on Sat.

    Tuesday, April 16.

    I'll be in Fayette County/Northeast Shelby County. (Though I'm pretty much wiling to meet anywhere nearby.)

    Wanna ride somewhere? Late morning/early afternoon. Let's find somewhere.

    I'm on a V-Strom 650, so mostly pavement or gravel is preferred.

    You can reach me by responding to this thread, PM or by text, 901-237-1007.

    Mike,

    Thanks for getting in touch. Nice ride today... thanks for letting me try the 800GS. Spunky bike, though I didn't care for the dual-sport seat. I liked most everything else. Brakes, engine, steering, and even the bars. Very responsive. Getting back on my own bike felt like sitting on a cruiser.

    Yep, your seat was hard to give up. That seat on the gs is tough and I am trying to solve it without making it taller. Have a Air Hawk on the way and will try that.

    I bet your legs felt somewhat cramped as well, as even mine need stretching after a while.

    I hope my bike runs as well as yours after 100,000+ miles.

    Enjoyed the ride and thanks
