Don't think I'd enjoy riding with the Capitol gang on the KTM 450.

There are a lot of pissed off people that "let" me ride through their backyards to try it.

I hung out with Mrs. C, Kent and Eric in the tower most of the day. Texted you some pics of a sweet little BSA and a red Duck. Both nice rigs for sure.

Saw a good group of Dual Sports heading in Saturday when I was leaving. Anybody on this thread?
Heck,I would have right turned into A53 if I thought you were home.You mentioned a trials meet in Virginia,so I just saluted the mailbox when I went by.

You could'nt see my big butt from the tower??I stood below it for a long time Sat. and Sunday..Hate I missed ya,It was my annual "out of town trip".

Greg told me back in March that they were trying to pick up KTM at the dealership.

Soooooooo
I stand corrected.
While my bike was trying to do an impression of a forest fire, (I wrapped the exhaust, and that Shit smoked something fierce at first) I met two guys that are riding from 15 minutes or so North of WF to the Virginia border via power lines.

I mentioned some guys were talking about it on pigs, they laughed. Said 450 s were awful heavy to pick up from the mud along the route. He said they usually start riding by nine or so, and ride until dark.
If I can get free I'm going to tag along on Saturday, and plot it via gps

Much appreciated. I'd like to get that track from you, or better yet, we plan a little lite weight DS ride on it sometime.

Hate I missed you Boss, but really wasn't looking for anybody. Did you bring up your vintage iron?

That seems more reasonable. Once you get to Henderson or up that way, it opens up a lot. I've thought about exploring it towards Butner a couple of times. 540 Toll monster kinda screwed up the going south from Raleigh routes.

I'll go with you and even carry your extra tools and some extra gas seeing as your little orange putter doesn't have any place to put stuff and it'll be a distance ride.

Have a brand new set of knobs all mounted up on spare wheels that could use the ride. I can also record/plot the route and host it up on my website if it turns out that this thing really actually exists and is legally passable.

I'm sure we could get one or two raleigh ds riders to join us as well.

Speaking of legal dirt - has anyone tried to ride the dirt road that parrallels 64 from Wendell to Hwy 95. From what I see as I'm passing that way there are miles and miles of it. Haven't taken the time to explore it yet though.

Yep, but it's not as legal as you might think.

400 stayed home,it's due for crank bearings.Seeing all the cool old iron did get me kick-started into splitting the cases though.

There has been a rash of disappearing bikes in the burbs up here too.

Thieves around here are lifting the bikes onto skateboards and rolling them off to a location where they can do some heavy lifting without anyone noticing.

Just cause you lock your steering column and maybe even put a lock on the rotor so that the wheels can't spin doesn't mean they won't be able to wheel them off anymore.

I've used the skateboard trick to move everything from a hot tub to refrigerators. Never occurred to me that someone might steal a bike that way.

Bad guys have gotten smart. We need to get smarter.
