BJ? Surley you jest! My daughter has a violin recital Saturday evening so I can only ride out Saturday morning and turn around to get back in time for the festivities. Mainly asphalt for me so I will be on the Super Tenere. May as well be comfortable

I am thinking about coming a week early for SLAP and staying at your place. How much beer you got?

I'll have to watch you on some of those forest trails on the Tenere to see how it does. Good to see that your going back to SLAP, I am sure you will be taking the WR down there for that. Me, you and Rusty will have to get tear it up again this year to bad that old slow Drunk Uncle isn't going to be able to make it..

SBR update.

Ted,
With RJ and the fiddle recital, day one on the SBR that might be a bust. Day one is the best single track.Save your kitchen pass for SLAP.

I've ridden the SBR many times----I've never seen one inch of single track ?????

Single track is a trail about 1 ft. wide with the handlebars barely getting between the trees sometimes. And is impassable with a 3 or 4 wheeler.

At least that is what it is for us older guys who grew up racing dirt bikes before there was such a thing as a 3 wheeler or 4 wheeler.

But I see that word "single track" getting thrown around a lot anymore by younger riders who've never lived thru that.

Just didn't want to mislead anybody about the ride.

Yeah Big Dog, I thought I missed something, I didn't see no single track. Mater of fact I didn't even see any "off road"

Old illinois bridges

I just wanted to say thanks to BigDog for the GPX file with all the old bridges. I mapped out a nice short ride sunday and it was great.

I think he was referring to getting your bike out of the parking lot at the Elbow Inn.

I'm in need of some legal advice after being involved in a hit and run accident on my DRZsm last night. Luckily the girl was caught and arrested for DWI. Can anyone make a suggestion for an experienced motorcycle accident attorney in the STL area?

Thanks for any suggestions, things could be a lot worse, at least I'm able to type this message today.

Glad you are ok, I'd think any lawyer would be drooling over this case, unless the driver is broke.. Very possible..
Did she at least have insurance?
