I'm still here.... on occasion.
And yes as always, I greatly enjoy your prose.
As Cubdriver eluded to, I've been spending a bit more time with my new "riding partner" Pam.
She's planning on joining here soon but how bout I post up photos of her and her bikes anyway?
At last Spring's Bike Show Pam saw the lovely white Ducati Monster 696 and had to have it. She then rode it almost daily rain or shine thru the summer.
You can imagine my surprise and joy when she said that even tho she loves her Monster she wondered if she maybe shoulda gotten a dualsport.
We started shopping Craigslist and found a nicely farkled and lowered KLR out in the Valley that a dad had bought to ride with his son a couple years back. It's an '01 with under 14,000mi. We went up Arctic Valley road for here first dirt ride and she did great. The road had even been recently bladed and was pretty "loose and marbley" but she said she still really enjoyed it. She's very excited about doing D2D.
Happy girl with new bike the day she got it.
And I just gotta say it, we both also really do enjoy an occasional 2-up ride.
