I figure he has balls that are so big they hang over each side of the ridge leaving him more balanced than us mere mortals.

If I still had every dollar I spent on motorbikes I would be a richer man but a poorer person.

That's gotta be one of the craziest things I've seen someone do on a bike

New bike

Wife just got her first bike, a 08 CRF 230L! I found it on kijiji just north or North Bay. Nice and clean with 3800km. We took a little road trip on Valentines day to pick it up. A great couple of hours and now the Honda has been added to the stable and is anxiously awaiting the Spring.

Congratulations! That's a good first bike.

I let her in the truck every couple of km.
The 533 "hwy" heading up into Temiscaning Quebec where we picked the bike up was pretty sketchy with lots of snow falling and a rough 50km of nothing. Was a nice scenic snowy drive though and not a bad way to spend a Valentines.

Happily the bike moving kit is pretty well set up.

And I got to use the mood lighting for the trip back

Town of Mattawa was kinda pretty too.

She's going to love it, my wife sold her Vstar 650 and got a 230l three years ago and I don't think she'd trade it for anything now. I may even ride it in the RR

If it's good enough for her, it's good enough for you.

Roaming Rally - Need a 3rd ...well 5th and 6th wheel

Anyone interested in joining in on a team. We need a 3rd rider. My buddy (kinda fast) and I (kinda slow) ride 690s and are looking for a 3rd rider. Failing that, any teams of three interested in picking up two more pers to ride with?
