    Anyone wanna make a buck the easy way? :evil

    Ahem ... seriously. I'm thinking of buying one of those bike lift tables from Harbor Freight, but have no way of getting it home. It's around 8' long and the damn thing weight about 300lbs. Not gonna fit in the SLK. So ... if someone has a decent back plus a pickup truck, and wants to see their wallet $30 heavier for 30 minutes of work, let me know. (I might even throw in a beer or two!).

    I'm thinking sometime next week, after work. Assuming they have it in stock. HF is on Broad near Parham, and I'm Northside at the corner of Seminary and Bellvue.

    PS: Unless anyone has a better suggestion for a lift table that's inexpensive and doesn't require dedicated compressed air. My back isn't going to take anymore of this on-the-ground crap. :-(

    :clap:clapwise choice there, those lifts are the cat's meow, and are worth the price, glad you didn't get persuaded into a Big $$$$ one, the HF unit fits the bill for 99% of the world....:clap:clap

    I think I should NOT have had the Dickies two meat platter before riding :lol3

    Two Meat platter with sliced brisket & pulled pork with decent coleslaw and tasty beans...

    I did not eat the whole monster backed potato, but what I did have was very tasty.

    It was much warmer than I thought it would be, just beautiful

    Had a great time. Met a new guy named George who had never heard of ADVrider. Hopefully he will join up. He was on the KLR and he can hustle that beast through the woods!!!

    Good seeing you all!!

    Fun ride and nice weather.

    The guy on the left was riding the crap out of the blue klr! Told him to sign up on adv, he'd fit right in.

    Hey guys, still lurking around pretty regularly but not posting much since I haven't been able to get out much with the 1 year old at home. Starting to heal up pretty good from a knee scope I had 3 weeks ago so I had to get out and play a bit today. Cut a little trail through the woods on my property only 1 acre :( and had some fun this afternoon while the little one was sleeping. Enjoyed my little bit of saddle time.

    Watching you stomp it into gear gave me flashbacks of high school. Jimmy Ellis used to come by and do that to his Can-Am.

    That dude with the KLR is George. I've been riding with him for a while. In his mind, that thing is a 125cc 2 stroke. Ride it like you stole it...
    And there's another place in Chester that's a little more technical if anybody is interested for sunday.

    Yeah I followed him around for a while and he was just slinging it between the trees and roosting out of the corners. He is NOT worried about dropping it and it is set up with all the crash bars so it fares well when he does.

    I told him to get on the board as he WILL fit right in.

    Lots of fun today. Feeling it now!!!

    I know the feeling man! I have a couple little ones too, and squeeze rides in when I can. I haven't ridden dirt in a few years since I lived in Arkansas. Would like to try it again if I can avoid killing myself.

    Thinking the same thing. Sort of. DR too heavy for regular dirt bike stand, for me to lift by myself anyway. I just want something small though. Like this:

    I'd be up for tomorrow after lunch. Chuck also posted about potentially going tomorrow. Don't see being able to get away today. It is the wife's birthday.

    Sounds good, we can shoot for tomorrow after lunch...We're up to our ears right now in Christmas decoration boxes, the kids are going wild. Gabriel, who just turned 7, has a tough time understanding that it's still four weeks away! (Shhh! A Tony Hawk BMX bike is already in the tool shed hidden under a tarp and my daughter's pink iPod touch 5 should be on the UPS truck soon! :evil)
