Paging Mr Stoughton....it looks like Mike will be in need of your welding skills to fab up some sweet racks, cuz there's NO WAY he'll be able to fit two tool boxes, an air compressor and the mosquito supression system on that thing.

Nice score Mike. But you're going to need a seat. That KTM is no DR in the "comfort" department.

I bought a Seat Concepts seat kit and it is the most comfortable I have had on the DS bikes.

59 degrees on Thursday.

I think a Thanksgiving day urban trail ride is in order. I need to be done by around 3:30 in the afternoon though.

Post up if you're in.

Might as well just roll the bikes on the front lawn and burn them before the wife does (riding on Thanksgiving #$#?!!),,,,but keep me posted. Weekend looks clear but cold.

Report: Wife tried to set fire to house, hubby's motorcycle
May 23, 2012
After Jennifer Ann Schofield got into a feud with her hubby over the phone, she decided to keep the home fires a-burning in a rarefied manner.



After hanging up the phone, the 39-year-old Samsula woman knocked over his motorcycle in their garage, tied a bandana to it and then lit the bandana. She then also set his bedroom dresser on fire, according to authorities, reports The Daytona Beach News-Journal.

And his ride was only over Memorial Day weekend............
