    I put my kickstand down in the Munhall, Lincoln Place, W. Mifflin area.

    I enjoy any type of riding that is typically enjoyable on a 475 Lb bike.

    Sunday is usually my day off.
    Sometimes I get the additional Saturday off for a 2 or 2 1/2 dayer.
    And every now n then I take a string of days off for some not so local exploring or even a rally.

    Just got back from a trip to upper New England and Maine that beat up 9 days and a little over 3000 miles. Usually no more that one of those a year due to the 2 jobs. Got away w/that by wrapping 5 vacation days between 2 weekends.

    Hey Jeff, if you ever feel like doing some exploring, give me a heads up. I'm on a V-strom, and I'm just across the river from you.

    If my Chain n sprockets arrive in time I'll be meeting some other knucklheads up toward State College this Sunday for a BBQ lunch.

    Your always welcome. Not much exploring on this day trip, but better than sit'n on the couch watchn the Steelers get romped.

    How you fixed for cold weather?

    I live in the Houston, PA and am originally from the South Hills. I putz around on the weekends with the xt225, both on and off road.
    Family and I are looking at some parks to go to this summer or some weekend riding. Would love to ride in the Allegheny National Park. The Pittsburgh DS Campout looked awesome! :ricky<?xml:namespace prefix = "o" ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
