    Have a good ride today you lucky bastards! Its beatiful out there now. I rode to work in Cranston this morning (brrr) and will be camping down in Westerly tonight.

    So I'm still interested in a ride tomorrow (Saturday, 4/7) say 10 or 11 am meet at Middle of Nowhere diner or Twisted Throttle? Who's in?

    Mrt10x, I should be able to get you some $$ too!

    The KTM is getting a new center case gasket and the KLR is in the middle of front suspension upgrades. If I can finish repairing the just failed Husqvarna lawnmower transmission and get to finishing the KLR, I will be in for Saturday.

    I am still in for the ride on Saturday (4/7) . I can come down anytime to any location. 10AM or 11AM..<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    However it would be great if we meet at 11:00AM ( since I will be coming from about 60-70 miles away). And I haven’t seen the new Twisted Throttle building so I would be interested in meeting there.. <o:p></o:p>

    Is tomorrow a dirt or street ride? I'm on a Tiger 800, with limited dirt riding ability.

    I don't think I've seen a strictly "street ride " done thru this thread. The question is...are you willing to drop your 800 ?.............:eek1.....on your leg? :cry

    Turtle, where did you get your headlight stone guard from?
    Trying to source one for my DR350 with zero luck.

    looks to be a popular big rig item. dimensions are close to the DR350 headlight size.
    Fits Freight-liner models, there's a freight-liner dealer in East Providence.


    but i still like the stainless steel cookie rack idea.:lol3
