    For those that are not yet in the email loop, I'll be doing a demo after the meeting tonight on a couple of bike set-up items that will be helpful to those wanting to enhance their skill level. Nothing complicated, you can do it in a few minutes in your garage. But they can go a long way in making off-roading much easier.

    Secondarily, I'm looking at a tentative date of Feb. 27 for my D/S clinic. Location & definite date/time will be posted ASAP.

    For the record my ride for the day was a 99 DR650. Nicely lowered w/ special forks & a reworked shock. The motor is the sweetest running thumper I have ever ridden. The entire bike was reworked by a master of the DR650 in GA w/ the intent to make his short wife happy. Was told she wasn't impressed. I don't know where the wife is but I have her bike. Even w/ stock gearing this things is way stronger than any single I have ridden. Many have mistaken it for a DR 350 cause it is so short.

    No, it is not for sale.

    I have been asked about this bike many times....don't really know what has been done in the motor, but it was done right.:evil

    This is a good group to ride w/ & if anyone w/ a DS scoot is looking for a ride then get in touch.

    Wish I could make it to BQF, but I gotta work this weekend. I might get a ride in with CADS on Sunday if I can get everything done on Saturday.

    At any rate, I'll make my way down to The Scrub again one of these days now that the bike is back in offroad-worthy condition. :dg :beer :ricky
