Looks like I should say "subscribed", but that sounds official. As usual I'll be lurking until I'm educated.

This Sunday...

PM me if you want to ride this Sunday in (almost) central CT. East Haddam, CT if you want to check the location.. I'll reply with some details..

I was thinking this Sunday would just be a few riders but there may be substantially more than a handfull now. That's fine. I just try to keep my local trail rides rather "low impact" if I can so as to not piss off the locals.... We'd be riding some of the stuff we rode on the second (harder) day of the Devils Hopyard Camp-n-ride as seen in this video but there would probably be a good deal more single track as well.



That is assuming I have a decent work-around for a failed starter relay on my DRZ... If not I may be riding my F650 after all!

Cage the Elephant.. I like them.. I may buy a CD.. yes I still buy CD's, even though the first first think I do is burn them to my IPOD, put the CD in a case and never look at it again I guess I am still a digital newb.

Al I can pull the relay, but I can also check at Razee's to see if they have one, I am going there today for another reason. The DRZ is the exact same bike as the KLX-400 and sometimes they have parts.

I'm sitting in Seekonk, waiting for my car to be serviced, about 2 miles down the road form Pawtucket Cycle. (aka Poole Motorsports)
They are a Kawi/Yamaha dealer and Joe, (service manager/owner) is a long time frien, going back nearly 20 years.
They have 1,000's of parts in stock, had many of discontinued parts for my AT1 on the shelf!! Parts that are No Longer Available, so if you need something chances are they have it and I can pick it up today.

I already PM'd you my cell, let me know and I will grab whatever you need...

Great video BobQ... Does that rib protection make me look fat you think?

It was a little slippery out there.

Pretty sure it is all the BBQ ribs as opposed to the rib protection.
