    I'm only looking for like $300. With a slightly different sized spare. They were gonna go on my tacoma but it needs a lift and bump stops. And I started riding bikes and stopped caring about the truck.

    I saw that on the news the evening it happened. I figured you would have heard about it sooner since it was in your back yard. Either you or Magoo or Sweetfeed would post up here. Sucks to see a rider crash even worse it was a former police officer.

    RIP rider. Saw that on the news.

    Sweets moved back home to Beverly MA, about 6 months ago, where she has a new Sweetfeed location and continues to rock. :D

    Sucks she's not in NC anymore. Glad she's doing so good. She sure can cook!! The newest article I saw says the rider lost control on a turn and went over an embankment. At least he died doing something he loved. Hope I'm that lucky.

    We are having an open practice Saturday, gates open at 1200 an there will be some food available. Come check out some motorcycle Flattrack action or run a lap or two yourself. The track is located at the intersection of Hwy 20 and Hwy 87.

    271 Victory Lane
    Tar Heel, NC 28392

    910-258-2272

    We will also be out there Sunday after Church playing music on the front porch and the track will be open. There is also 35 acres of land to putt around on to see what you can find...I know a mud hole will be easy to find!!!

    I won't be on the bike this weekend at all. I highly doubt the Uly would do any good on flat track :evil

    Leaving tomorrow for the CVOTC Axton, VA Trials event. It's a combined Trials competition with the Metrolina club out of Chralotte, and the biggest one of the year.

    You guys jump on the bikes and come on up Sunday to watch. We'll be there tomorrow for a play day (practice on the old trials sections not being used and a cook out). Competition starts at 11:00 Sunday.

    Check out the website @ www.cvotc.org for directions and more info. Will have at least 3 AMA National Champions there, and one of them is a 14 year old girl. :eek1

    Dang, I pulled a Rugby. I was putting the crash bars on the Terra when something didn't feel right. I rounded the threads on the tip of a bolt....that goes into the engine. :banghead:

    Now I'm driving all around looking for a special grade 1000 italian bolt. :mad:

    Red Italian bolts are just as hard to find as Orange Austrian ones. I now feel his pain.

    Haven't seen weather like this in a very, very long time. Normally we have droughts, now we have floods.
