    Actually a more road leaning thumper is gonna be my next gig- those plans are subject to change.
    That would leave the 250 for straight woods, the 400 for the mix, and a bigger thumper with some legs for travelin' an such. The LC4 is kinda known to last much longer than I normally keep a bike (what isn't known to last a whole year:D )
    I like the fact that I will have the 250 to beat on. The DRZ is much more fun on my daily ride than it is, and has the big ass tank:thumb What I really would like for my next financial catastrophe is a large thumper to hit the back roads to Jawga, and points beyond...:lurk

    Not a thumper, but maybe one of these or this exact bike would suit you?

    For brother Shaun, who will be the last man in America to buy an oilhead GS. He'll have every bike ever made, but his GS-resistance Fu is strong....

    Nope, it is back in tally at the local Pseudo-BMW dealer.... battered and beaten with only a few hundred more miles on it than it had when y'all loaded it up:baldy Looks like it was used as an MX bike, or at an MSF class.....

    Yup $bob$ nothing screams capability more than a low mile bike in a parking lot 10 miles from the house.
    That fact that you didn't park in the handicap place was a nice touch though.

    Oh...but it has bags on it.
    You must have been on some kind of a long trip,.......... like ALL the way across Leon County.

    bspBOBbsp,

    I knew that y'all would think that I never ride it in the dirt or mud so I spent hours carefully spashing mud on it so I could be accepted as a gin-yew-wine panhandle mudder and now you complain that it's dirty.... :lol3

    I guess that comes under the category of "you can't win" huh? :lol3

    Now I guess I got to wash all the mud off but THEN I'll be accused of being a poser with a clean bike that never get's dirty or trying to sell it at a dealer because I never ride it... :deal

    I can't win for loosin'.... :lol3 :rofl :lol3 :rofl :lol3

    But it was a big puddle... Doesn't that count? :huh :lol3 :huh

    As y'all must have figured out by now I'm usually not too thrilled about getting my pretty bikes dirty, but that day was a bit of a surprize.

    I was cutting through the forest on "Bog Hole Road" as the locals call it.... The maps call it NF-308 from Joe Thomas Road to NF325 and the mud holes didn't look so bad but they kept getting worse and worse. By the time I realized I was actually gonna get my boots full of water and my bike all nasty it was really getting too late to turn around and wade my way out. :huh :eek1 :huh

    So I plowed ahead like a true Panhandle Mudder and got soaked with muddy water and got my bike pretty nasty for my trouble. The last big mudhole going east (Joey probably likes to play in this one ;) was pretty imposing and there was no way around that I could see so I took a deep breath and hit it at a moderate speed.

    When my front tire hit what I was hoping the bottom I realized that I was VERY close to drowning out the bike and I was riding alone as I usually do...
    In my limited experience with big nasty mudholes I decided there was only one thing to do and that was give it enough power to bust on through. The X leaped to the Challenge (pun intended) and nearly did a wheelie as it almost jumped out of the mudhole (Steve?)... :D

    I came out the other side and let out a big explosion of air and realized I had been holding my breath through the whole ordeal.... My bike was covered with mud and my back and legs were as well.... YECH!!!! :puke1

    Some of y'all may like mud holes and actually seek them out and play in them. For this transplanted Damn Yankee they're about as much fun as a trip to the dentist.... :lol3

    I'll take the heat for avoiding mud riding like the plague any day before voluntarily riding in mud when I can go around.... :D
