If he's lookin' to tackle all of that. The best input I have is:

-At least he has crash bars.

-the 950 crashes well according to statistics.

-He has a set of stones.

-I wished I had his money.

Haha...I don't have much buddy...it's just that I'm young and single and don't have much else to spend my money on.

Nice Pictures, Josh. I had a swell time hanging out with YFF's Friday evening. The hammock and sleeping bags on the porch @ TWO tops the cake though. Whatever works, right?

Here's a few pics from my weekend. In advance I'd like to apologize for the quality, I've pretty much put the wood to my digital camera. Anyhow, here goes in order.





Dags being bashful.


Josh comes along to ease some of the stage fright.


The next morning we FINALY left TWO and headed to NC for what turned out to be a great ride in my book.


From the gas station we went to a liquor store in NC that doesn't sell beer and took a picture in front of the no loitering sign they had posted.




Dags walked to a beer store from there and got one helluva steal on some beverages.

17.99 per twelve on the best buy sticker.


From here will filled up with lunch at a Mexican dive before making the Kicstand the final destination for the evening. After lunch Jerky sports his new rain gear for a photo op.




Now before all you start commenting let me mention a few facts here.

1-Jerky was the only one who got there dry.

2-As a safety measure, Dags was able to follow the blue dot down the road with fogged glasses and a leaking visor spitting rain on his nose every mile of the way....Even waved him ahead of me once so's he could get behind Jerky. Just follow the blue

Onto the Kiskstand destination.


Flux waving at some "whodats."

As I said earlier, all in all great weekend and riding with some old friends and just to put the icing on the cake, I was able to spend time with a couple I haven't been fortunate enough to ride with yet. Andrew, my pleasure, buddy. Hope to see you and Josh around more.


PS-I may have a few shot's I'm sand bagging.

Back home safe and actually bone dry which is funny considering it poured rain the entire ride home.

Billy- nice pics. I'll have some to come in a bit.

Oh yeah, Coates and I had to abandon B.J. and his Tiger tonight at the Kickstand Lodge. Dags to the rescue should be arriving there any minute now with a truck. Crazy weekend for sure.

Yeah, true. I've met ARod2000 as well.


More than likely, most of them don't know the real meaning of adventure, or, have never had the nads to experience one, right Alex?

I'm waiding in wonder how SR did at the races this weekened. How about Y'all?
