With Spring coming, it should sell in the fleamarket

Oh don't strain yourself on repairs. Just give it to me. That way you won't have to burden your schedule with it. Just sign the title and I will take care of the rest. I will even pick it up for you.

Then you will never have to worry about it again.

I listed the Uly on the flea market last night. I have a guy in IL that's willing to trade for a Ducati ST3. I gotta find one to sit on so I know if I like it. The bike looks awesome.

Looks like its sold. My buddy is picking it up this afternoon. It took him 2 days to stop grinning after the test ride. I wish I had the cash to have picked it up.

I was seriously considering it but did some research and found they require tight maintenance schedules. Plus parts aren't easy to get so I will pass on it. I wish I knew how to paste links because it's a NICE bike.

Mmm

Trust, can't help with the tap & die, but a couple of buddies and I are going to MMM. We're trailering up also. What kind of cage are you taking up??? We'll be in a late model, white Ford F150 crew cab. I'll be on my Beta, friends will be on KLX250 and Husky 650 Tera. Might be able to link up with you if you like.

I'm planning to do MMM at the end of the month, and even though I'll likely have to trailer the bike out (7 hrs on the DR350 stock seat, plus tire wear ... ) to TN, I want to get things fixed before then.

I may be able to make the trip out to MMM if I can get off work. I would be riding out Friday morning. Planning to ride my 800GS. I should know by mid week and it would be nice to link up if I do.

Next Sunday is the 1st CVOTC Trials event of the year up in Lawrenceville, VA. Should be a good one, as guys ride the rust off from the winter.

Coords: 36.708132,-77.826982

http://www.cvotc.org/joomla/

Also wanted to mention that we're hosting another 2 day Ryan Young Trials clinic at my place on 12 - 13 April.

Spectators are welcome. Come meet a 6 time AMA/NATC National Pro Trials Champion and learn a thing or 2 about bike handling and Trials. Spectators can probably even get a little peg time while riders eat lunch on 1 of 8 rentals that Ryan will be bringing.

We'll be hanging after the clinic on Saturday evening and opening the redneck moto drive inn if you want to stick around. Ryan usually hangs out with us and talks thru his Trials DVDs.

Dust To Glory always gets shown at the ride inn, as well as other moto hits.

For him to come there again so close in timeframes, he must have really enjoyed doing the clinics there or you pay him an awful lot ;)
I'm going to see what's on my plate that weekend and hopefully I can come watch.

Chad, Yes we do pay him well, but it's also the only weekend he has open.

I prefer a fall clinic because October wx is usually a great time to be riding. However, with a Spring clinic, riders usually leave with a list of things that they can work on throughout the riding season.

Clinic is completely sold out again with 20 riders.

Hope to see you.

Outback Hare Scramble

Another great hare scramble at Outback is in the books. It was GREAT seeing everyone. I have to say that one was one of the toughest ones yet. It was super fast in some sections I thought my bike was going to start swapping I was on the throttle so hard in the highest gear I had, then there were other sections where you felt like you were riding the latest jack hammer technology - thank god for that kidney belt. Roots that saw witness to about six riders in front of me kiss their rear tire as it came around to meet them. And yet other sections that had mud holes that were swallowing bikes whole. I swear I saw some bikes with just their handlebars showing. With careful line selection and of course thanks to those courteous people that were kind enough to mark the deep holes with their bikes so others could avoid them, I managed to stay out of the worst of it.

I am sore right now though! Tomorrow will be worse. :loll

All of our crew managed solid finishes and we had some of the finest cheering sections ever in attendance at any sporting event, ever!

Looking forward to the next one ...
