    Enough about half a bike. Let’s talk about “whole” bikes. As in is anyone planning to ride their whole bike this weekend and get out somewhere? Supposed to be cooler than last weekend, still too hot for dirt bikes though. Just wondering.....:hmmmmm

    Thanks, :D:D
    Wow, what a difference good suspension makes!
    After I corrected a few issues, the Halfrica was even better on the trail & road.

    Go NSFW, your dream is coming true.

    Happy Riding! :clap

    Well there wasn't much in the way of info/ details given out about it. :dirtdog

    That's ok, was too hot even along the beach for my liking. I didn't really put out much effort on my end to make a ride either. Maybe next time, or next weekend since it's looking like my bike will be sitting out this weekend... again.

    Just some FYI for people I ride with and those who I will ride with.

    In 2016 as many of you know I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. I was only 49! After having surgery I am happy to say that 3 years later I’m healthy and strong. We think of this as an old guys cancer, but that’s not true and early detection is key.
    I didn’t know I even had it but a nagging wife made me get a physical with blood work that had a PSA test and I’m glad she did because it saved my life.
    Today I’m doing my part to help spread the word and raise awareness for prostate cancer, to pay it forward so to speak.
    Did you know September is prostate cancer awareness month?
    Most don’t it’s not something most guys talk about but look at October you see lots of pink because women raise awareness about something similar that takes lives so why shouldn’t we.
    This year I’m participating in The Distinguished Gentlemen’s ride for men’s health and prostate cancer.
    If you are able to donate, please do by clicking the link below or copy and paste it.
    Otherwise please help by making sure your Dads, brothers, uncles, friends and yourself get checked it could save a life.
    Please support me in raising funds and awareness for the DGR by riding for prostate cancer and men's health. Go to: https://www.gentlemansride.com/fundraiser/KieseAlbayati173725 to donate.
    Thank you and I will see you on the trails.

    Donated and thank you for for doing this. A PSA , done earlier, probably would have save my Dad's life. He had no other health problems and was still riding his VTX in the last year of his life. I get one every year since he died 7 years ago. I'm 53 now.
