Robin,
I can help you with that.
Don't buy anything.
You and Jennifer come over one night for a visit and I'll load you up with detailed topographical mapping.

Any suggestions about what map(s) I need to get so this will help for numbered trails and regular roads? Or rather, what would you do if it was new to you and you dual sported a lot.

Hey yall long time no talk! I just finished my schooling up a few weeks ago so I'll have some more opportunities to get the old KLR or Husky out. Already have plans for this weekend but I'll have to tag along sometime in the near future.

Welcome to the madhouse.

Sounds like you are looking for a fast burn ride. Please read post #2 for info on ride and meetup locations.

I will most likely ride Sun and maybe again Mon. Be happy to meet up.

Any one else have plans for the big weekend.

Time to move up roll out time to early.

California ride report

I have been in San Diego for the past three days helping the Marines get their act together.

Anyway I have been going up and down I5. Crazy. But what pisses me off the most are the motorcycle riders. I have learned that the dotted lines are the motorcycle lanes. Out here they are evidently allowed to zip between lanes.
I almost hit one and it shook me up.

Btw. Also saw lots of pickups with dirt bikes goin somewhere.

Maybe should have posted in Pee Leak

congrats dallas.... I can't wait until that day comes from me... This summer I am taking LINUX+ online...YUCK!

I did pass my Project mgt and network cabling classes both with A's!


Doug, I, Walker and maybe Morris is going to bham this weekend to visit my aunt (free night to stay and dinner...YUM!) then ride street bikes from there to Sequatchie TN for the FIM Trials World Championship, http://trialsusgp.com/ I have never been.... but I hear they are Awesome!!

I will need a break after this weekend... we have been going for the last 3 weekends, Bermuda then mountains, now sequatchie! Then I have the Hooch coming up in the beginning of June! I could use a dual sport ride for sure to sharpen my skills before I go.

Lane splitting makes me jealous too.... Tried it in my rental car. Good thing I had the off road Chrysler 300
