No . . . I got a few days of riding in while I was in AZ, but that trip was mostly about getting the GS out there and getting ready for the trip that starts next week. Although, the little January blast across the country was kind of fun.

Ah, I thought you were headed right to MX. I can't wait for your next RR!

Yeah Tinman's wearing your jacket, Tslapper has a pair of your boots, Rich ended up with your dirty grundies...and I kept the rest.



Shes been a good ole gal.

Oh good, proof.

I told you I didn't want them if they belonged to a dead guy.

nearly spit out a mouthful of beer at reading that one T!
(but I am often using the heck out of the jacket on warmer days. It's not really big enough to layer as well as my "regular" riding jacket.)

I'm still kicking. I loved that GS, seeing her again makes me, well, dewy-eyed all over again...

2twisted, I'm happy to hear the bike's been good to you!

I just bought a pair of used boots in the flea mkt (they may be a bit small in which case they'll be posted right up again) and I'm looking for a good XXL adv-style jacket. Any spares out there?

Spring seemed to work last time...not sure if people have "stuff" to get rid of though.

I am kind of surprised that regional gear thread didn't do better

I've got a few things to get rid of, and a spring meetup just to BS and maybe do a little riding would be great!

Kind of like a spring cleaning for me.

Take it all out, drive it 75 miles, dust it off, drive it 75 miles again and put it all back.

Put all that stuff in the bed of the truck and drive fast enough and you'll save the dusting step

It's a good reason to rotate stock

I know it would be a different vibe, but what about posting other places about the swap meet? Maybe some suckers (er... buyers) would come if it was from outside the ADV crowd.
