    I have bubbys staying the night for the party so I won’t be able to go early. Probably about 10-11 for me.

    Things are looking better for me to ride this weekend. How about breakfast at 10 AM at the old town diner?

    I’m not gonna make the start time. Friends spent the night and are still here. I sent mark a text and may be able to catch up with you guys on the road in a bit.

    Oh, and my WR250R was cranking kind of slow this morning and I ended up having to jump start it to get the bike running. The OEM battery was fine starting the bike the rest of the day. It's over 8 years old now! Probably time for a replacement I guess.:lol3

    I don’t think you’ll be dissatisfied if you decide to go that route. Another friend of mine now has one on order as well. I am still pretty concerned about doing any real off-road but know it will Handel it well. I am please with the street performance and gravel road manners. Went south over the weekend and had a good time. Second water crossing on Witt road was deeeep. I was pretty scared after I saw my buddies exhaust fully submerged in water on his 1290SAR. Anxious to get some more miles on the T7. It not looking good in the coming 2 weeks. Might do NEBDR 2 weeks from now if weather permits.

    Me too. It was obviously pretty congested this weekend which was to be expected. Did a lot of southern KY back roads this morning and it was incredible to be honest. I need to take a few days and just ride Kentucky sometime. My Tenere needs new tires something fierce and I can not make a decision. Wish I could find someone to build a set of supermoto wheels for it so I could swap periodically.

    Give me a shout when you have time to do some KY. stuff. I have some great routes of dirt and curvy assfault. I am free for multi day trips or I will give you some routes that you can do. Also take a look at the Mitas E-07 Dakar's. I have no issues with fast asphalt performance and dirt,mud,water.

    We met a xr650l on Stevens Branch, but out of state tags. He was going the hard way. We did the rocky uphill and downhill.
