    I like it! Of course a good percentage of the bikes there are shaft driven and therefore no rear sprocket, but I still like it!

    What does the latin say on the bottom? Nevermind, I get it.

    "Roll the Bones". Or something about an Ossa. One of those.

    Amoveamus Ossa = (v) to dig out, pick up or lift your motorcycle from the bottom of a stream or lake. Often. Comes from when the legionnaires took their catapults off-road. :deal

    Yeah, I passed there whole crew in a sweeping turn & was going to fast to get behind before jumping the cattle guard. Technical I beat leader to the cattle guard. I guess it was the racer in my making a pass quickly. :D

    I like it. The sprockets fit the theme of riding the back roads.
    Shaft drive bikes still have gears inside the case.

    Maybe so but shafts with oil leaking out of them just isn't as iconic.

    Josh. You are now in the running for a button. Keep working at it. ;)

    My two hairball passes at yesterday's Goatsville meet and greet (3 bikes and a Mustang on 1238 and 3 trucks and trailers on 56) sets a pretty high "street" bar. But apparently you got the dirt part of the requirements down. ;)

    The easiest way to get street cred for your button:
    1) Leave Granbury on 51 going South.
    2) Wait patiently behind a gaggle of pirates until the twisties start.
    3) Pass pirates in twisties.
    4) Arrive at loco, order, and wait for them to show (bonus points if you get your food before they get there).
    5) Bask in their glares (if they'll look at you).
    6) Consume ribs.

    Don't ask me how I know :deal

    There was just me and JoeB (on his cool Husqvarna 650) in our crew, and it wasn't you that really got my attention. It was the one behind you that flew by right on the cattle guard. It was a little close, but like I said, no harm no foul. Something to remember RTB4 by. :D I have a few of those really close ones that flash back in my mind, from time to time, that could (should) have gone wrong. The ones that didn't turn out so good, I can't remember. :huh Those are the things that keep me riding under control these days. That and the date of my birth. :evil

    Yeah, I practice the dirt passes every time I race the 300 at the Hare scrambles. Although, I have many teachers during the race as they go balls out as we drag race done the choppy straights, slamming brakes the last second into the rutted blown out berm. Very different on the slab. I guess that's why I like the loosen of the gravel roads. Sometimes I'd rather be sideways than straight.

    Lol. I think the 950 can handle that. :D
    What about a patch. I'd stitch one on my back right top shoulder so they could see it as I pass. Seriously
