    Boy - you guys have a bunch of water, for sure.

    Nice and dry all day today up here. Sunny, and in the upper 50's!

    Tomorrow will be even nicer. Finally.

    From Sandlick, a really small town close to the southern West Virginia border. I have been riding in these hills since my early teens, just spread my wings out of here in the last couple of years. You can see pics from the link in my signature. I look forward to meeting you all in the bush.

    It was a great time, and a HUGE learning experience. As I said, hadn't been out of this patch much. Where you from?

    H&M is a really nice get-up. I have been taking the wife and a few friends to Logan to stay for the last five years, 4-5 days. Motorcycles, ATVs, we all get along. Two of the parks are close enough to home that the wife can ride the ATV from here. Let me know when you want to go, I will do my best to help you on accommodations and such. O, and we musn't forget about the outlaw trails. :evil

    Damn you got it made. First you get out of Kitchen duty, then head to the mountains. Have fun and be careful. Nice day for the trip. You should take a rod and reel. They stocked the crap out of that place last week.:evil

    Just took some, excuse the mess, the garage was my wood cutting, drywall snapping, paint mixing area while we redid the house:deal
    Its all stock for now mods to come after I settle back in. I think I have it under control now as far as help goes (unless you have 600 board ft of rough cut 3X1 for my trim you want to deliver:lol3 )
    On the other subject,, I do live close to the H&M system but have never rode any of it. HMMMMM thats odd you say? Well there are so many other great trails around my area I just haven't went and bought a pass to ride that area, but I will someday. Ride down anytime call me I know of a place that has this pie you speak of, bout 25 miles north of me.

    The lighting sucks in these pics and its dirty Ill get better ones soon.

    Its even cleaner in person, those pics suck. Yeah cases, ram mount, and nice fastway pegs. No I dont think it was ridden much at all 4k a year is what it averages out to. Thats gonna change I have had it 3 weeks and put 1k on it just around town and home from Louisville. I need to spend about 2 grand making it the way I want it but its a great bike now. It is what I was hunting for a year and a half. I got lucky and found it at a dealer near Dads house as a just traded in unit, so Dad went and looked it over and made a deposit.
    See ya soon.

    I saw someone on a new Tiger at Seneca yesterday. At least I think thats what it was. Orange/Red color. The rider was wearing a high viz jacket. Anyone from around here?

    Nice day for a ride. I went out Laneville road and up onto the Sods with intentions of heading North toward Scheer and swinging back home through Davis. Got up on the Sods and the FS gate was closed so I ran down to Jordan Run and around though Seneca instead.

    no problem, I took Monday off last minute and after doing some stuff around the house just couldn't resist going for a ride. I think it was about 2:30 when I started. I also met Bill (wvgreenhorn) over the weekend, he came up to Timberline on Sunday to pick up your doohickey tools. I agree that the roads are pretty bad. 72 between the Dryfork River Road intersections is really crappy. Luckily :rolleyes its an election year so a good bit of the paved stuff should be great by November.

    Big negative on the turn signals. Guy has never pm'd me or replied to the thread. Guess I will just order one from the dealer. You ever find a front headlight shroud? I have been keeping my eyes open looking for one but haven't seen any.
