We were thinking about LC too so may see you there. We'll be caging since I'm not quite up to safely piloting, uhh, much of anything really.

Sorry guys - I disappeared for a few weeks and have not checked this thread.
I bent the front wheel on my DRZ and my dual sport is down.. LOL My FZ1 is also down so I have been getting some exercise lately ;-)
Sorry to leave anyone hanging - I will respond to the guys who send me PM's. I was so angry/ disappointed about the wheels (not to mention being without a motorcycle at the moment) so I have done zero local riding and looking for dirt roads in my area. Sorry again for the abrupt disappearance.
Hope you guys are enjoying finding some new roads in yalls areas. :cheers:

XR what? Not that I'm looking, but I don't know your inventory.

The thread isn't dead, it is just getting slow due to the holidays.

My daughter is taking the MSF class this coming weekend and if she gets her license we are loading up my parent's RV and heading for Big Bend on the 27th for a few days of Father/Daughter riding. If she doesn't get her license, we are loading up the RV and heading for Big Bend for a few days to two up riding. Big Bend doesn't appeal much to the wife and through in RV and/or camping and she down right dislikes the idea. However the daughter likes the idea...and has nothing better to do.

Been too busy at work or out riding on the weekends to post. The last three weekends in row I have ridden 500 to 600 miles each weekend.

My kid is home, too!! First month long visit since......uhhh... high school. Of course, life has intruded to make it suck as much as possible but...it's still nice to have her home. Would love to get couple days of "no stress" time with her. Your plan sounds wonderful. Color me very jealous.
