    ok, i put a vid together of some of the clips. this is just a glimpse of what skinner offers. and it is a very rough edit, don't have the time to make it nice, so just a bunch of clips with nothing fancy. and sorry about the sound, i meant to drop down the volume of the song, but forgot. so you can't hear the bikes very well, but then again can't hear the loud wind either.

    Hey all, let me know when the next hooky ride is (coupla days in advance if possible- need permission from my Parole Officer)

    Questions
    - is an IQ of 82 or thereabouts too high to come along?
    - I like to crash- how close is the nearest trauma center?
    - is a criminal record required for these trips, or just suggested?

    :D

    -IQ..........what's an IQ?
    -Guaranteed to crash, or get made fun of for not riding fast enough. and i think the closest thing to a trauma center is the trenary taverern.
    -if you don't have a criminal record before the trip, you will after.

    That looks like you guys got to have a blast while the rest of us got to see if our bikes even would start....in our garages.

    At least you got to see if your battery was toasted (and still have electricity around to save you) :lol3

    I'm claiming the 175 the starting trooper. 2nd kick after driving up there, and she fired right up. Sure it lost a footpeg......and the tail light.....and we filled the ozone with 2smoke, but she was a lil trooper.
