    Lots of rides to choose from. We are sorta slack now cause of the heat but we are still managing to ride because of the rain which make summer riding a blast.

    If its not raining WATCH OUT - the heat will get you before you know it. This is serious business. I "hit the wall" (a term for heat exhaustion) last week and it was not pretty.

    Im out for a Sunday ride but I might could make a Saturday Blackwater Ride. Get you n00bs a taste of the state park...

    I don't have a clue about the KLR but I do have an assortment of shift levers over here. Maybe we can BEND one to fit. All depends on spline fit.

    Any KLR guys out there to help.

    I picked up my FJR from Bob at R&R today. He had it ready on time and based on the estimate I got from my dealer (a dealer that I have a lot of faith in and as far as I know has never screwed me) saved me at least $100. :clap

    I'm glad to have a suspension guy in the local area and recommend him highly!!!!! :D

    I'm dropping of my front forks for a rebuild with bob next week based on everyone's reviews. Seems like a great guy on the phone. I can't imagine the difference it's gonna make. I'm sure the 15 year old stock front end is tired. :rofl

    After I get my forks back I'm gonna do a shakedown run in BW. If anyone of the new guys wants to join its gonna be a laid back ride. I'd be happy to show you around.

    Man how time goes by ... The last time I rode the puddle road was Turkey Trot 2 :eek1:eek1:eek1

    Hey all you n00bs out there. How about a ride Saturday morning from Karrick Lake (preferred cause of breakfast at Mickeys) or Hutton Unit (closer to Pcola)???

    I would be in for starting at the Hutton Unit (see post #2 for directions)...the earlier the better as far as beating the heat. Anybody else in?

    Can I still be considered a n00b since I haven't ever started there before?
