Sorry about that, you know how Austrians and Germans have issues. It's a half worn TKC80 that apparently still does the job. What's more impressive though were the small boulders you were throwing from the Tourance keeping up with fullmonte

I forgot all about trying your bike when Lynne brought out the great soup and appetizers, imagine that. Next time.

Thanks again to all for a great first ride with ADV Riders.

Well, since I'm the boss........
Being self-employed generally means that when I have work I have to be doing it, and when I don't have work, I'm trying to find some......especially in this economy. I will be riding down to Florida next week though. Looking forward to that.

The Hill Climb.... & Descent

Here's the footage of Brian going UP and DOWN the hill on his XR650L.

Sorry for the quality, it was from my cell phone.

Boy did I ever have a good time, cut short tho it was. Love them spirited rides! At least, it was certainly spirited for me....

Got several miles from home and had a flat rear tire, so was late for the company. Really interesting slide on a corner that let me know something wasn't right. At least it only affected me and not our great ride - would have hated to take up dirt time fixing the darn thing.

Happy to have met some wonderful local riders. Sorry I missed the lunch and bench racing later.

Drew, what was that site? couchwhat.com?

Riding to Springfield tomorrow to watch some flat track racing - back in a week.

Jane

It was nice meeting you Jane. I'm glad you joined us. I'd like to explore that FS RD 22 up from Hwy 2 into TN sometime, maybe make a full day of it.

The group Drew meitioned is couchsurfing.org

Have a safe trip.
