    Great Pic and use for a Honda, I can think of no bike better suited to operate as a tow vehicle. It's heavy, slow, stable, and generally found with a rider with same qualities listed above.:bash AND somehow they always carry a tow strap.

    say what you will, but i'd much rather be the lead guy in that pic...
    & he's on a honda. :clap
    also, he must be faster than the KTM -- he's in front! :lol3

    It is very much like the tortoise and the hare, right?

    IF it weren't for that honda, orange guy would likely be spending the night in the desert. Now which bike would you want, the one that goes fast and leaves you stranded, or the one that keeps going, with plenty of torque (and speed IMHO) and gets you into your nice soft, warm bed at night.

    No brainer.

    I'd figure the guy on the Orange bike might learn some great skills without the Honda rider... He might learn to sleep in the desert, He might learn to keep his bike maintained... He might even learn that he is better suited for a slow, heavy, air-cooled, needs little maintenance Honda...

    You never know what you might learn...

    Bring the Honda's out on Sunday's ride and I'll eat my words if need be...

    I'll even bring my big heavy slow bike:evil

    I offered up a good pair of Tech 8 boots for consignment at On Any Moto, today.

    They are size 12, and certainly used, but in good shape (boot inserts included).

    I hope someone here grabs them quickly. At $50.00, they are a steal.

    They are here: http://www.onanymoto.com/

    Dave, you missed a nice turnout at Nimbus...

    Hopefully the people taking pictures will throw a few of 'em on here.

    It was great talking with everyone and seeing some people that could not make the one in February.

    :D

    I did a driveby of the nimbus. Was gonna stop by, but I was in uniform and can't really go to bars in uniform..so I had to head back to work. It looked like quite a rabble. Hope ya'll had fun.

    I got my money's worth, for sure: Tool Holding water carrying snake storing potato-cannon grenade launching tubes. RAWK:D.

    Likely NOT going to be able to make Sunday (wife's class doesn't get over until 1000, etc etc) but Sweeny just held forth about a Patagonia loop on Saturday so y'all have fun!

    Nimbus was great. Nice to see so many fine rides and meet some interesting folks. Only one curb jumper, though. :clap

    I KNOW there were photo takers there, so where's the proof that a bunch of fine DS's showed up, swapped lies and kicked tires????
    :huh
