Tim was nice enough not to mention my stupidity. The foggy lense thing and not checking up enough before a 30mph or so corner.....well there were friction issues and 40 or so feet later my Wee was quite mad and me. I wasn't really happy with myself. Thankful for good riding gear. Timmy I ended up with a couple friction burns on my knees and no holes in the pants....whacky.

Exactly it's my same method for tightening bolts.......tighten till it snaps and then back it off a 1/4 turn.

Thanksgiving

And a Happy Thanksgiving from the edge of the Yellowwood. Last night I picked up my new (to me) Suzuki DR650 at Thornton's over in Versailles and this morning and afternoon I cruised about 50 miles of gravel roads in eastern Monroe and western Brown Counties. The weather was perfect.

Tim aptly described the bike. First gear is indeed a little tall but the bike pulls very strong from the bottom and is pretty comfortable. Looking at it I figure it is just an overgrown XT225. AIr cooled and carbureted it is just a basic bike. But it seems perfect for running area backroads. I took it up to 80 on a stretch of 46 and it still had some room to go.

I had the shop put on a new set of Dunlop 606's before I picked it up and I was pleased with the way they performed on the road and hard pack gravel. If the weather holds this weekend I'll try to find something a little more challenging.

I keep seeing references to Moto Supreme. Where exactly is it? I know where Cafe 58 is. It sounds like it is somewhere close to that. Can anyone provide me a location and a description.

If anyone is riding around Monroe or Brown County this weekend I'd love to hear about it. I have no internet access at my place (I'm in town at the moment) but can get email on my iPhone. Drop me a line at bmwlou@aol.com if you are heading out this weekend.

In any case, I hope everyone gets in some miles this weekend.

Paul that hero dirt you had us on yesterday had traction.......those sandy corners, not so much. It's still a nice bike just has some character now......I was hoping for more paint damage so I would have an excuse to paint it desert tan

Sunday?

I'm riding Sunday, supposed to be a high of 47. No specific plans, I've got the route for day1 of the Buffaloe 500 adventure route I've not ridden, part of HNF routes that I missed, and I've not been to Moto Supreme yet. I'm flexible.

Don

Anyone have or know of a $1000ish dollar car for sale that doesn't need much work? Need to buy my dad one.
