Chris, I'm with theses guys!

Bottom line, don't be stupid cuz it's probably going to involve a couple Just don't bust yourself up again . Like MWS said, "If the alternative is not riding...."


If you don't try it, you'll always regret it. GO FOR IT!!! I don't think you'll have any shortage of willing riding partners .

edit: of course, if you drop it, they'll probably take pictures before they help you pick the bike up....

Great afternoon for a little ride.

Seems like every time there's a big storm there's one less road down at Camp Ellis


Not much happening over at OOB

Go for it.
I'm with Mike....what ever it takes to get out there riding. FWIW Honda has released an entire line of bikes based around that power plant...I am assuming it is a solid mill.

Order the bike, ride the bike....enjoy your life

What ? - Are you some kind of trouble maker ????

I didn't even get a chance to check it on Sat. - too busy digging out.
Had to work until noon on Sunday and managed a go at Moody on the outgoing tide.
It was pretty good. Head high, some bigger. Fast and with some energy, and the best part was there was plenty of time between sets to get out, which was especially good because I can not remember the water ever being so cold.
I had a real nice brand new wet suit on and I was getting dizzy just from duck diving.
The River looked/was really nice in the late afternoon but I didn't go out there.

And just so I don't piss off the landlubbers - This I like v

Must have been great to get out. Got a ride report from your last westward venture? Us 9-5, M-F chumps need vicarious thrills.

Thanks for the encouragement! I'm convincing myself that the bike is a good idea. When I sold my GS (to a Maineiac, IIRC) I gave/sold almost everything with it, cover, bags, boots, jackets, and so on. So, I'm starting to price out the new bike and the gear I'll need to ride it. Its not cheap, but with some creativity I should be able to swing the whole shebang. So....

I forgot what I wanted to ask. . Does that slick Honda have 17s, and if so, what brand are those tires? I loved my TKCs and would like to think about something like that for the NC700 which also runs 17s f/r.
