He's on it.

Would you also be interested in a spinning wheel that spins straw into gold? ;-)

Just kidding, maybe there is one nearby!

but lets be honest,when Im standing in front of a cherry,
low miled beauty of a 950 loaded with bling, I'll probably
throw my wallet,testicles and shoes at the seller to get it. . :)

If that's the case did you see the 950 in Las Vegas with 3300 miles and S suspension...I think Tony is willing to front the extra $1k!

Maybe we can snag one of those great tags next weekend if they are still around.

Today we were busy making a 160 mile trip out of a100 mile trip to Reelfoot Lake. :-)

A lot more curves than the normal route. ;-)

Did you see any Bald Eagles? Plenty of them around Reelfoot.

First of all i'm interested in anything that turns anything into gold Let's get that trade started immediately! bike hunting will be a breeeze!!..., and the mortage, bills, taxes, no more job, hmm, hmmmmm, hmmmmmmmm, ........... Oh sorry I kinda trailed off there into my own fantasy LOL!

And thank you Tony, for fixing my budget cap That's about how it would go down I assume Other than for anything over 6500 will require a knee crawling beg to the prettier half for money which i'm not above

I've also been talking with this guy http://pittsburgh.craigslist.org/mcy/3605788019.html Although he's in Pittsburg. Only for the fact that i'll be doing training up in Cleveland, Oh in a week and a half with nothing to do on the evenings other than make a 2 hr drive and look at a bike

I got lucky back in '05 and bought a low mileage 900 Monster off Ebay from a Dentist in Pittsburg. Got it cheap because he admitted it wouldn't start after sitting for a year. One carb clean later, it's been humming ever since.

Had my best friend from Kent, Ohio go pick it up 3 days later and store it until I went up to get it 2 weeks later.

So, who ya' training up in Cleveland? Or are ya' being trained?

I saw one eagle and several hawks as we were riding up there.
We went over to the Reelfoot Lake State Park across from Boyette's after lunch and saw more eagles, owls, hawks and other critters.

It was lunch time for the eagles. Glad I'm not a chicken.....

We actually passed Lost Road! :-)
