Found a place to hang the helmets

Some of you might remember that I posted up a while back about being relocated back to VA. The time is fast approaching and happy to report that we have found a place.

Decided to settle in Smithfield due to the proximity to work and other services. Elementary Schools are ranked high (Baby boy is only 10 months so have some time) and closer to friends in Norfolk, Chesapeake, and Da Beach. Should be boots on the ground in VA first week of June.

New place needs to have a couple of small sheds moved. Any who are willing to come and assist, or provide comedic relief, will be blessed with charred animal, beverages, and possibly a dip in the pool; if you promise not to wear a banana hammock.

Cheers Ken

Does anybody know who carries Nolan helmets in that area? I thought Adventure did, but not showing on their website. Thinking about an N104 for a new commuter/street lid, (about time to retire the "FrankenArai") but I have a very wonky shaped melon and need to test fit.

First fill


And yes, I did pick it up with a full tank (granted, I still had some fuel in the tank, but 140 miles isn't a bad first day, especially when I worked my main job and my part time today).

The Rallye has the paint job and comes with almost all options as standard (comes with everything except the TPM and the traction control).
Because it was an unsold 2012, I got it with take-down lights and the slightly (120 miles) used luggage set for about $1650 below MSRP on the bike alone.

Nah, they have plenty of 2013s for sale. 1 - he gave me a good deal on this one, 2 - I want to ride with a coworker who likes to go to remote places and I felt water cooling would be a liability.

Shhhhhh...Don't say that to loud around my Super Enduro. She get's a little frisky and likes to toss me off when her feelings get hurt.

Nice looking scoot man.

Ah yes, the mighty Morton's. They still do there big rider days up there?

Just for reference, in Virginia alone I have lived in Norfolk, Chesapeake, Va Beach, Charlottesville, Madison, Culpeper, and Ruckersville. Madison county has some great roads on the north side of 29. Anybody been over the Blakey fire road? Extremely entertaining after a rain and covered with leaves.
