    I've got a new toy to set up, and it has no plate, so Walker Valley or Taneum, or...?

    I might be able to Dan. I've got a quick work trip, returning Wed. night. No known plans Thurs evening. Let me see what the family says. I'll get back to you by tomorrow sometime.

    What time were you thinking? The later the easier of course. I suppose we have light such that one can ride until 9 or 10.

    A husky?! Sweet! I would go, but I sent my cylinder out for bit of repair. I'll be ready for a ride in two weeks though!

    The wimpy weight-lifter's substitute for horsepower is featherweight. I plan to drop the suspension by about an inch to come a bit closer to the ground.

    This is an attempt to put a seat and larger tank on a trials bike. Right about 200lbs dry, or 50 lbs less than a 390. That's a lotta dogfood when it's laying on top a ya.

    I'm flexible, as usual. If we head east, early is better simply to miss out on all the commuters heading to work. Mega-miles is still not in the forecast, but 30-50 is doable, I think.

    Unfortunately, Upper Mad doesn't open until Friday, that would be a fun trip.

    The paint wore off the frame, so I sold it because it was so beat up.

    Well shit. Wife just informed me that I have a dinner obligation that night... apparently it's been on her calendar for a month, so I can't bug out. Damn. And no ride for me next weekend either-- camping with the kids. I might go mad if I can't steal a ride somewhere quick...

    You're preaching to the choir here, as you know. Standing by to learn the results. Take note of how it rides in water for me, will you?

    Mark has a long way to go to catch me on the lifetime list, I think. Like Jack Benny, I'm 39 years old, and I've had a new one every year so far.

    Wow that didn't take too long. I guess your test ride at Whidbey made an impression.

    The ride convinced me that I'd have less trouble keeping a pipey 125 running in the mountains rather than keeping out from underneath the 'berg :rofl

    I really need a way to buy two inches of leg length offa you. You can spare that, can't you?

    I think I'm less likely to break my leg (again) if I borrow some leg length from Brian.

    Boot looks perfect with the exception of a huge KTMSticker

    165cc's is planned as a Christmas present (I'll see if the hint works with anybody, or end up buying it myself). Apparently a Keihin carb is the hot tip for a little better low end, too.
