Hay Kliff. I picked it up in Aiken. The OTD price with an armored jacket & full face helmet was $3200. It still has 2 years on the factory Warranty .



Why are you getting rid of your side car rig?



Now lets see if I can figure this picture thing out:

Yeah ... got rid of the PO's stickers.





When it was still at the shop








On this last road a deer jumped right out in front of me... pretty cool stuff to see on a first ride.

Cool. Yup, Aiken is my preferred multi-line dealer too.

The sidecar.... well I originally bought it for severral reasons, to keep myself riding, and to exercise a post operative back, and execise my heart. Then Dad wanted to do some riding...yadayadayada. I know riding a 900lb rig in the woods sounds stupid, but it has built up my back, knees, and heart to the point where I can once again comfortably ride the street on 2 wheels, so I'm ready for the woods too. It's only got 10K on it(6000 miles) but that has been a bunch of exercise sessions in one year. It served me well, and has made me well. But I wanna return to 2 wheels, so the War Wagon has gotta go. Can't afford it and 1 or 2 more bikes.

Where are those woods pics...Sumter? Man...we gotta go ridin' when the DR gets here. Gotta get all limberred up and re-toned for 2 wheels before we strike out for N.Ga., to run some of those DOGs down....LOL!

Great looking bike too!

You didn't happen to notice, in Aiken, if they had any...uh....BIG riding gear...as in maybe XXL jackets....did you? Gotta get a Camelback too. With the hack, I just threw the Gatorade in the sidecar....uhh, that won't be hapenning on the DR.

Man that sucks about your back, but glad that you are good to go on two wheels again. I was looking at a rig just like yours so that I can take the dog along for the ride. What kind of MPG were you getting?

Aiken was sooo much better then THAT place in Augusta . The staff was friendly, they had more then 3 bikes for sale and the gear selection was pretty good. I did notice that when I went in on sat to finalize the paperwork the amount of jackets and pants they had on the racks was getting smaller by the min. I actually had to order the mesh Joe Rocket pants on-line from a place in NJ.

The first dirt road (the one with all the pine straw) was actually right by the Dam ( forget the name of the boat ramp). I went in about 1/2 mile before I relalized that I had almost no tools with me and limited experience riding...so I turned around.

The second pic (looking over the handle bars) was in Sumpter. They have tons of gravel 2 lane fire roads that lead off to who knows where. I used to Mtn bike in that area and I know that there is a 5-6 mile single track loop (un-sure if motor bikes are allowed) but I'll check it out this week. I also found some VERY detailed maps on-line that give all the nitty gritty about the fire roads.....but then again I might just ride and see where it leads me.


As far as a CamelBak's go... I use the HAWG and I love it. It carries 90 OZ of water as well as rain gear, tools etc.. Just make sure you get a cleaning kit with it. Gatorade or any other non-water beverage will turn the bladder into a science experiment in no time.

So... where else is there to ride trails around here?

We were able to ride the range and training roads on Ft Gordon, A guy I know, Rob Crisp, worked out there part time, and showed me around some...then one day he said it had been shut down to M/C'ers...shortly after that, Rob's bike got stolen...and I ain't heard from him since.

"Me and my monkee" knows some areas up above Thomson. PM him, see what y'all can get going. And I'll keep trying to find Rob. Should be plenty of dirt an unimproved roads down below Wrens, over toward Avera...again, I'd like a partner with me on rides like that though. Rob also told me about some dirt just across the river, Hwy 28, on the right hand side...but I never got over there to check those out.

The War Wagon averages about 25mpg, a single wheel drive, LIGHTER, rig, like Dad's Troyka, will do about 30mpg.

HAWG huh....I'll check it out. Thanks!

I wanne be an AARSE

Andy Simons here. Located in Trenton, SC (between North Augusta and Edgefield. Highly qualified to be either a dumb AARSE or an AARSEhole.
Current bike is a 2005 F650 Dakar. I am too old for single track but I don't mind riding a few hundred miles to explore woods roads.

Welcome aboard you ole AARSE, glad to have Trenton represented! And don't feel bad about not doing single track... all I'm looking for are fire roads, dirt roads and the occassional fire break.... nuttin' too tough, just out in the country away from pavement, cages, and road signs...LOL!
