I would like it to be straight and running but does not need to be perfect, I am planing on doing a lot of upgrading, tank, stator, lights, etc..... I am looking for cheap, I know they are harder to come by, but I know in my heart someone has or knows someone with one they no longer use and has parked and forgot about. Please PM me, so I can relive my boyhood!!
Thanks all and keep the muddy side down!!

Doesn't exactly fit the bill, but it's cheap!

Saturday

If anyone would like to join in, a few of us are meeting up for a ride in the Cohuttas...starting from the Cisco, GA side. I'll be leaving out of Rome around 10a.

You DO know about the gate closures up there until the 14th of this month, right? Scroll back to the previous page for the Cohutta map of them.

Thanks, FM - the route I'm taking is north of the map on the page before. Hopefully there are no gate closures up where I'm headed - though I don't recall seeing gates on these FS roads.

Hi Mack,

I may join you if that's alright. Just as long as there is no ice. About 3 weeks ago I managed to break in the 1190 real good. I dropped her on each side while riding on the darn ice still present on FS roads in the upper elavations. I actually forgot how heavy these bikes are to pick up. Especially when you're lifting while slipping on the ice....Anyway the 'o' 1190 is not so pretty of a gurl anymore.

Aw man, sorry to hear it. I want to see it in the flesh before you finish it off!

I don't know about you guys but I'm overdue for beer & wings someplace for a bike night. (I tore down the 690 last weekend to adjust the TPS so I'll hopefully be back on 2 wheels in a few days )

You're welcome. Are you guys going in at the stone church across from the red gas station on 411 at Cisco? If you have an eta for that spot, I might join you.

When the weather warms, and it doesn't get dark til' nine, I'd love to put some faces with names. It's about an hour and forty-five minute ride for me to ATL.
