Yinz go play. I'm working on, yet, another KLR in the shop. Almost, but not quite, a full overhaul to get it back into shape.

As usual, just waiting on parts now.

Sunday Ride

Why don't we just say 1:00 pm beside Martins on Forest Hill. Its a little chilly today.

Andrew .... Martins is a mile or two west of Powhite Pkwy on the left hand side on Forest Hill. I believe the crossroad is Cherokee Rd. If your coming from the west its just past Chippengham Pkwy on the right hand side. Google shows it in the Stratford Hills Shopping Center.

Mike .... I have the same jack. It picks up my Goldwing no problem. Just remember to set the jack into one of the lift grooves to keep it off the hydrolic pump.

Where do they park and leave trucks or trailers to unload quads? I would need to leave my truck after off loading and don't know if Martin's is cool with that. I've always enterrred from Crestwood ES off Jahnke Rd which is way on the other side of the riding area.

Just pull to the left of martins and follow the gravel road up the hill and go right and over tracks.

THose potholes at top of hill are HUGE and usually filled with water so they don't look so bad.

I'm in! 1:00 pm at Martins, for those of you who have never been there, go to the far LEFT side of the store.

Dan, Sounds good. I'll swing by around 12:30! Andrew and I are bringing the GS's so I need to go charge my GoPro! This should make for some good footage!

I have mine charged already.

On the truck parking, didn't someone say that there was a security guard giving people a hard time at the Martin's shopping center? That being said, the ride from the other side of the area does not take too long.
