    Been awhile since we took a ride , so we done a short one around the local roads . This is the 2015 KTM 690 Enduro R that I just picked up from an inmate in N.J.
    just like new , the idea was to replace the 2013 KTM that I had stolen while riding the T.A.T. made it as far as Batesville , Mississippi and the bike along with a buddy's bike was stolen from the motel , just 5 ft. from the door.. enough on that , I made the trip on my 450 just fine .

    Barb got stung by something all the way through her jersey....she's giving it the ice water treatment now !
    short ride , but it was good to get out together for the first time in a couple months.

    Watch out now , she's got a new ride !!!
    I just got the 350 EXC lowered so she can almost flat foot ( with riding boots on) , taking a test ride around the back yard..
    I think she's going to like that ReKluse once she gets to ride it some.. looks like a 350 mini-bike

    Hello friend - I was wondering if you could tell me about that tarp/frame you have for your trailer?

    BTW - I enjoy reading your posts. :-)

    I bought some tarp frame corners , ect from the internet that fit conduit pipe .
    made the frame to fit a 12 x 20 tarp , top pipe on trailer goes through eyebolts I fastened to trailer frame.. tarp fastened with ball ties... makes a great area for shade
    takes probably 20 minutes to put up , after doing it a number of times , but I think it's worth it considering the size ... It's went through some hard rains and wind
    without any problems ... when it's real windy , I stake the corners.. think I'm going to do the same thing on my shop above the end doors , works great , IMO
    thanks for asking
