He'll, just being able to kick start that cold-blooded bastage on an icy winter morning was enough of an accomplishment for me. The sideways action....I was just showing off for the camera, that's all.

Looks like it might be a nice weekend for the end of Nov.

Anyone interested in getting into some dirt. Maybe a one day trip to St Helen. Monday is looking even better.

Sunday high of 51 down here and 43 in West Branch. Looks like rain in West Branch though, of course all that might change yet . .

Hey Randy, you in for another ride ? I know a perfect place for your 990 Adventure, it'll be great, i promise

I've got some 2 yr old DOT approved knobbies that are up for grabs. The front has about 60% tread left and the rear is in the 40% to 50% range. I put on new ones for this year's U.P. trip so I don't need these. If any of you guys who like to ride gravel roads would like to give the sand a try (on the cheap), offer up a 6-pack of something brewed in Michigan and we'll call it a fair trade.

I might be in for a ride this weekend. Probably take the 530 though, so I have an advantage over Bruno :-)

It probably just needs a little more header-wrap. Looks like they missed a spot.

Sounds like a good deal. But I just ordered them! Dang.
