That's why I PM'd him and we talked on the phone. No need to start a war over why the BMW is better then the KTM. One side note, the KTM I sold was black; its faster then the stock orange KTMs.

You should park them facing away from the wall. Then they will look like they are ready to go for a ride.

The way you have them now looks like they are being punished.

Lol that's because they keep making me fall off. If I can finish a ride without doing so, perhaps I will reward them

Campground for Frederic

Anyone know the campground we will use in Frederic? Happi Days has a strange note on their site saying the diner is closed and the campground is no longer a business, but folks are welcome to come on a first come first serve basis.

There is another campground there called Trails Campground.

Thx,

Randy

Randy,

I called them a couple weeks ago and talked one of the owners of Happi Trails. He said the diner is closed, however the campground was open, but not being run like a business. I took it as you can camp there, however very limited services. He also said that I was lucky to catch him as it was during the week. I think you would have better luck talking to them on the weekend. Made me think he is working somewhere during the week.

I don't think it's the bikes Randy. I think it's the big hand fulls of throttle you grab. Roll it on, roll it off, throttle control.
