    I think I passed you on I-5 at 12:45 at Talbot Rd. today.
    If time allows Fri., I wouldn't mind going up the Mackenzie (126). Finn Rock store was for sale last year, want to see it's status.

    If your Brownsville friend can go, and my bike seems solid, I wouldn't mind heading out of Holly and take logging roads to Finn Rock, it's been years.

    Where is this 2fer coupon for? What time do you want to meet up?

    I have no off pavement experience yet, so as long as your willing to take your time in the loose stuff, and give me room I'm game. What condition are the roads?

    I'll have to take off my fancy bags....

    You should know by now that motorcycles are to be "Farkeled With" and not loaded up and ridden like some government mule! My God ! Mr.Drifter I can only guess you were born and raised in some backwards town by backwards people ! Please on behalf of the more enlightened and Right thinking world citizens of ADV, I urge you to soul search and reconsider your obsession with"Actually riding" and remember why the Caged F800GS Sings......... Yikes ! Oh and call me Bro.

    Well Erg, after some gut wrenching soul searching, as you suggested, I've decided to sell the "kruat krate" and purchase
    a Vespa! Furthermore I will "Farkle" it to the extreme and ride only to the bar. And yes, I was born in a barn and raised by the same wolves as yourself. I apologize to the good people of ADV for myopically fixtating on riding, please forgive me my transgressions.


    Screw that, get your KTM down here and have a battle of the toutinic bikes part 2...condsider yourself called :evil

    Took the bike around our loop last night, worked great for 1000', then started crapping out :ddog . Things are getting busy, so I haven't tried the jumper to fuel pump yet. Hopefully have time tonight.

    Looks like lunch is the focus, at worst I'll truck it for the meet-up. I have a 2fer for Riley's in downtown Albany, if someone wants to split it. (I could probably steal Littlemak's 2fer also)

    For cheap, Albertson's has an outdoor BBQ on Fri., great $2.50 sausauge dog. I also like Abby's salad bar. There's always Costco too :wink:

    11:30am?

    Had fun riding in the rain today. Came home early to be sure I didn't blow away later.
