    That photo was taken 2 years after I had purchased my first ever motorcycle, which Suzuki kindly financed for me, the every faithful DR 200. I also have had a 2003 SV, candy blue, which I was not prepared for. My "road" bike is the Honda Hawk 1981 model, CB400T. The Hawk has been quite awesome enduring some of the torture I have tested on it.

    2011 ~
    The poor lil DR has over 16 k on it now, (as I was incorrect previously) been to 4 different states on & off-road. Not much, I know, but I do what I can :p
    The Hawk has been to PA & to the Noog hometown, back last October.

    The first set of photos will be from the 'Early Years' of the DR's adventures. It might take me awhile to post as I'm horrible about doing things at all, it's a wonder I even have a job :p

    This is one of the most awesomest photos ever of capturing the DR after a day of chaos!

    Yes, before I had gear, before I changed the rear fender to the DRZ 400. That was also the day of the gigantic dent on the rightside of the tank :/

    Those are just the preview pics. I need to collect the ones from the PA trip and commentary on those as well. :p I hope I don't get banned or in trouble. I'm just catching peeps on the past.

    Your off to a good start. Keep posting. The Smokies are a great place to ride. I could spend all summer on my steed.

    Caught in amongst the purple butterflies, I didn't spy any poop in any shape or form.

    [​IMG]

    Towards the end of the ride, or so I thought.
