Draechon, sorry man! I totally dropped the ball on this thread. The last year has been pretty busy with selling my house, evicting and getting new tenants in my rental, and getting engaged. I'm pumped about all the riding this year. Hope to make it down to Charleston for one of the dinner's soon.

The little Sherpa is great. I got it for Christy to ride. She hasn't ridden it much, but she is good enough to jump on it and ride around parking lots. We have gone on one or two "trips" to get food downtown, but that is about it. Hopefully this year she will be able to really put some miles on it.

It started burning oil shortly after I got it, but usually just on the interstate. Next winter I will tear it apart and figure out if it is rings or valves. I really like it though. I put lowering links on it and slammed the suspension so Christy could flat foot it. She learned on a friends TTR125 that lived in my garage for a couple years. But it is SOOO smooth on the interstate. Smoother at 65-70mph than my KLR was. If you aren't in a hurry, it is a great great little bike.

How you been?

Soooo.....

I want to welcome myself back to my thread I started a few years ago.

I haven't ridden much since last fall, except for every month or so doing the occasional ride to work. Not normally my style.

But I've ridden a good bit the past month. Spent all day today working on the bike and car. I have been having issues with my GPS and USB outlets that run off my FUZEBlock having intermittent power. Turns out the like lock on wire tap I had used to get switched power to the device wasn't seating very well. I swapped it out for some PosiTaps I had lying around. Those things are awesome. Anyways, just a good day in the garage, which it feels like forever since that's happened.

GI-JO-Nathan, assuming you are still in here, I will make you that TNT video soon!

What's up Jesse!
Glad to see you back.
I've been a little ghost around here lately as well, just happened to jump on tonight.

That would be cool to see the video from that day. I feel like I've come a long way since then. And the KDX is doing awesome!

I rode to Navarre FL over Easter weekend to visit my little brother. He is an Air Force U-28 pilot stationed at Hurlburt Field Air Force Special Ops Command. Here's a random pic I stole off google...



I'm pretty proud of him and pretty jealous, he's worked his ass off for the last 7 years or so to get himself to this point. So I wanted to get down there to see him now that he has been there 6 months and congratulate him in person. He is also getting deployed in Sep-Oct timeframe and not sure when he will be back. He is only allowed to tell us what continent he is going to and thats it.


First big trip of the season! Also first time in a while I've done a long trip by myself. I rode from Columbia SC to South GA and camped at the Georgia State Veterans Memorial Park. It was a bit pricey but very scenic.







I think picked up on Friday morning, snapped some pics of the Veterans Park.



I stopped by the Kolomoki Indian Mounds. Also a cool place to camp, but I was just there to see the Indian Mounds.




Very cool and interesting. They are the largest Indian Burial Mounds in the Southeast. The Temple Mound is 57 ft. One of the smaller ones was excavated in the 1800's and a museum built over it.



Inside of an excavated mound.



I got to Navarre Beach around 2pm on Friday, which is in between Pensacola and Destin FL. Hung out for two days at the beach, my brother's favorite pizza joint/bar, and checked out some planes we dream about buying.





Mooney M20


Another Mooney, gosh I want one!



Couple of King Air's, and Jerry Jone's private jet in the background, note the Dallas Cowboy logo on the tail. He has a house in Destin.



Packed up on Sunday and rode 550 miles home. I pretty much road straight through each gas tank (its only about 140-150 miles range on the F800GS). Except for the 3rd one, I stopped in Macon GA for thirty minutes to see an old friend and meet his wife. He now lives in Honduras full time and met her there. They had a wedding reception the night before in the US for all the people that couldn't make it down for the wedding. Didn't snap a pic, but he has a KLR650 that is all setup for riding down there, but hasn't been able to ship it down. If I happen to stumble upon 2 weeks of vacation, I told him I would ride it down for him!

Congrats to your brother!
