I knew I was riding slow on that course, but KR was going so fast it made me dizzy just watching. Amazing.

Simply you wear hard contact lens while you sleep. It reshapes your cornea and during the day you have perfect vision with out glasses or contacts! After 3 years, I love em and will never go back to soft contacts. My doctor is Dr. Byra / Dr. Forche at Five Points Eye Care Athens, GA. http://www.fivepointseyecare.com/

The initial cash outlay is around $1000 but after the first year, it is just a yearly vision checkup. New lens are around $175/ea if you break or need a new one.
Thanks - I'll give them a call and also talk to SpeedyR's PRK guy. I have to do something.

Putting Ducati multistrada to the test

Gumbeaux, Been lurking for awhile, and was running through the last few months of posts and ran across this pic of me on the MTS. Had just gone through about 20 yds of slippery mess and was damn lucky not to have dropped her. I love to take the MTS on FS roads but that day I was being a little too ambitious.

I ran into 2 groups of 3 on that road, where you the guys I ran into later at the BP at TWO?

Would love to join you guys (D.O.G's) on some rides, but not sure the MTS is the best tool. Looking to get into a wr250r for this kind of riding.

Thanks for posting the pic....made my day.

Sam

I pussed out and left last night before the weather came in. If the two previous nights were any indication then the regulars are probably doing just fine. They had not been banned yet either. Hopefully they found more booze before they raided the near by tents and campers! It was good to meet everyone. Got a much warmer welcome in person than I did on here. Lol.
