    I rode the DRZ in a charity poker run yesterday with a bunch of Harleys and had a blast. Everyone was super nice and a couple told me they either had an "off road" bike or wished they had an enduro.

    Had a killer day in the woods yesterday.

    Me and some smellas went to Livingston.

    The best woods riding conditions you could ask for.

    the company could have been a little better but - you take what you can get :lol3

    I'm planning on hosting a ride out there through Sloans on May 5... as some of you know, there is potential to win gift cards etc with our dual sport rides...
    SO mark it in your calendar to be there and I'll get more info to you soon :-)

    Hmmm I didn't realize. Well, if anyone doesn't want to go that far north they can can come south and have a little fun for the day :D
    We can always do it again at a later date if no one wants to come down, well play by ear. :)

    1993 Honda Nighthawk 750. Came with two windshields, Hondaline backrest, and soft saddlebags. I'm gonna get the legal stuff taken care of today and ride it down to the Brewhouse this evening.

    Where is this suspension service? We'd love to have a good service somewhere local to Nashville area. Fork seals, revalves, etc. - all the stuff I hate to do.

    Nice choice for a commuter.

    Best thing is, it has hydraulic lifters!

    Just remember to use 10-40 oil in it, the lifters don't like 20-50.:wink:

    And if you wanna get froggy in the twistys...you might wish for dual discs and better fork springs.

    A 600 F2 or F3 set of forks would slide right into the yokes on a Nighthawk.
