Well I may need to come down to ride for a weekend if the snow doesn't start piling up! Could you ride some Sat/Sun combo? Any mountain biking to keep my grrrrrrl entertained or is it too soft for a pedal bike?

70 mile continuous single track (Black Canyon Trail) that is awesome and all non motorized.

My schedule goes through February 15 now, only weekend is the 8,9.

I wouldn't change any plans for your one free time slot, but that might be workable if your grrrrrrl wanted someone to hike around with and my grrrrl would be ok w/ trading off with a kid backpack while the boyz were out with their toys... an epic pow storm could change my thinking, but hey...

I just put a set on my VStrom and love them so far. Only about 500 miles on them and not a ton of off road. I'll get to it if it ever thaws out in GA.

Are they loud? I've heard some people complain about them making a howling sound once up to speed, but haven't tried them out yet. I run the Anakee 2 and have really liked them, so am planning to switch to the 3 when it's time.

Toyota Mechanic?

So quiet here.....I'm looking for a referral for a toyota car mechanic. College car is one of the '97 3L models, automatic with low miles. It needs a bunch of TLC and I'm not a dealership patron for a car like this.

Any of you FF's know an independent who is reliable and gets 'er done?

Gotta bottle of Ken wine for the winner....or a sixer of PBR if that's your flavor....

Knolls will likely be thawed out by this weekend if anyone wants to go sand surf!
