Met guy w/ '99 DR350. Came home w/ an empty trailer. The search continues........


As I was examining the DR, a fellow came up and joined our conversation. Turned out to be inmate SingleTrack Jeff. Nice to meet you sir!
Great meeting you sorry you went home empty handed. But sometimes that is better than a bad deal.

Great meeting you too.

Yeah, the condition/price matrix just didn't quite work out. Once I saw it in person, his bottom dollar and my top dollar were several dollars apart. I also cringed when he told me he always washed it w/ a pressure washer.

Oh well. He was a nice guy and likes his bike, so no harm done!

I was Hoping to watch online and not drive to Niceville :(
I read that thread the other day, that's what inspired me to ride, I stare at it from the condo, had no idea you could ride it or it was that big.
You guys are very lucky!!

Hey gang. Rusty Jug is coming this way and we were gonna hook up for a BW ride on Monday 5 Aug early. (the plan as of NOW).

RJ - you can hit Jackson Guard on the way back since we have to go through Niceville anyway to get to Blackwater.
Then we can ride Eglin the rest of the week.

Anyone who can get away during the week you are welcome. Typical ride over wide improved roads, never getting over 30MPH, max fork travel = 1".

We can finish the week with a great local place to eat to tell the tall stories that week! I need a good sending home meal with the locals! I'll do the same if you make it to Missouri! The Show-Me state!
Plan to eat a few of these that week!

I'm from cattle country I need to indulge in seafood country!
I had those back in March when I was down, I can't get enough of quality ones!

I guess we must have more than 1" of travel once in a while considering the way my tag has taken on the shape of my rear tire!!!

Would love to come but not sure about the weekday ride. Will try as the date approaches.

Any weekend rides planned? I'm sure a lot of us would come out for it.
