    Completely was not planning on riding something that messy and don't plan on doing so again on the wee. The skid plate I have is 1/8th inch steel.

    man, all the damage assessment reports coming in, i had to go out and give the "V649HP" a check.

    nada, except for a motor mount bracket bolt that has come up missing despite loctite blue gel. i'm going to pull all the rest of those bolts and reinstall with red.

    i thought that the low muffler might have a ding or two, but not a scratch.

    Well, that certainly wasn't the intent of my post to solicit business, (honest!) but yes, we can do that.

    What material is your existing pan made of? If steel, I could do it now but it would probably need to be done in a couple of sections. If aluminum, I will need to get that material in. Either one, I would prefer to have a sheetmetal brake at my disposal to properly form the piece.

    I see another tool on the horizon............................

    Seriously, tell me what you have and let me collect what I need to do the job right.... and we'll go from there.

    And, thank you.

    This is all video from the first half of the day. Cameras ran out of battery and memory.

    Cool pic's and videos'! Thanks for sharing! Cool scratches on the skid plates too! You know, GS really stands for bikes with "Gashes and Scratches!" :D

    I guess we will need to come up with something cool for the DL650...

    I called VCU to check on Jimmy and they couldn't find him in the patient information. Does anyone have information on him, is he home?

    Hey guys, I'm down in VB so usually stick to Hampton Roads chatter, but figured I'd post here as well.

    Looking for a bike for under $2k. If you know of anyone with one, please PM me. Dual sport or street bike is fine.

    I went to visit him this past Friday.He's in room 202 in the Trauma Unit on the 9th Floor of the MCV Main Hospital.The lady at the hospital Info Desk had to search twice to find him for me.He's in good spirits but pretty broken up.He was supposed to be there at least another week before moving to a rehab unit.

    As of Friday afternoon, they were waiting for a room to open up on the ortho unit and then move him there and then rehab after they get his leg in better shape.

    lemme try to reach him, I have no idea of his schedule, and seeing as he has been out playing for 2 weeks, I can't gurantee he'll be free....I'll text him up and get back to ya....
