    As much as I love doing wheelies, I think I am going to quit. After doing that same thing on the CR500, I couldn't imagine doing that on my F800!

    That is an understatement. :lol3

    Solid ice on side streets and drives of Moscow. So slick I had to hold onto the pick-up to get my mail. Need 4-wheel drive to get out to the street.

    Well, I thought I'd introduce myself, and see what ya'll had to say about my plan to move to Spokane. :D

    My ex has moved to Naples, ID and I gotta be close enough to deal with being a dad to these two rapscallions:

    [​IMG]

    At this time, I've spoken to Lone Wolf Harley Davidson about a job, which is looking good, at least for the riding season. I might be a bit hungry next winter, though. :evil

    Meanwhile, I am in need of an abode. I know next to nothing about Spokane, other than it's a reasonable distance to the kids without actually living in the mountains. Any advice? I definitely need a garage/shed for the bikes (a 04 KTM 9-fiddy and a 99 Buell S3T) and whatever tools don't end up at my place of employment.

    My budget would be somewhere between cheap and poor, and a short commute is pretty important to me. Years of a 50-mile one way commute has pretty much taught me that my time is worth a lot to me. I'm not willing to burn it up on the freeway, commuting. I'm just looking for something simple/temporary to land in. I'll find a more appropriate kid-friendly place after I get settled in and feel better about the work situation.

    Any neighborhoods to avoid in Spokane Valley? How's the commute from, say, CDA or Post Falls?

    Thought I'd mention I'd be willing to trade maintenance/repair on a inmate's bike fleet as part of a rent exchange program.... :deal (I'm a certifiable, errr I mean certified motorcycle mechanic)

    Aw c'mon! I had my bike out the other day! Although, I'm pretty sure Jarred J. saw me in his rearview mirror do a perfect cartwheel over the handlebars right above your house.

    I'm kicking myself for trashing my old tires; I'm itching to try sinking some screws through a pair to make a set of redneck offroad/ice tires. :wink:

    Sorry neighbor..."riding" a couple of hundred yards and then doing a cartwheel over the bars isn't my idea of riding. :rofl

    I was out for over an hour up around Milsap and was finishing up my ride with a few rips up our road. I was so numb at that point that I was losing limb function. I'll blame it on that, more than the fact that I was stupidly trying to baja it over the 3' solid plow berms. :D

    I hope you enjoy your move to the area. If you are going to work at the Harley dealer look in Spokane Valley for housing. It's not a bad place to live and would be close to the Harley shop. WA doesn't have a state income tax where ID does so you might want to think about that if you are thinking about ID. There are advantages to living in ID too though.

    Good luck and be sure to join us when we have get togethers.

    Spokane has lots of wonderful folks, especially those that ride. Jobs can be scarce at times, but those two munchens of yours sure like worth moving here for. I'm on the far north side of town, so would be about as far from the Harley shop as you could get. But I do want to wish you safe landings and hope to run into you soon.
