Thanks guys - I'll need to do a little riding to get comfortable with it. That Safari tank is humongous....like a strapped down water buffalo.

Best part is I got to meet good people!

I thought about that one Mark but I don't know how to make them little 2's......

And I was also eyeing those bikes for sale on your website but was worried they weren't broke in yet.....

Yes---the tank is big--------now you can go somewhere
If the fuel injection system is stock-------now you can go way over 200 miles. I think I might have went 270 one time.
I've never screwed with the fuel injection or exhaust------you'll spend a lot of money---make more noise---ruin your gas mileage and gain almost "NOTHING".

To make the little 2 -------lock the caps lock key on your keyboard---------hold down the alt key---type 253-------then let the alt key up----and there you go----------˛˛˛˛˛˛˛˛

We need to see pics! Great news Gary, looking forward to riding with you again soon.
Now get to work on the SBR!
I guess I need to get a mountain bike, since you came back to a motorized one.

I heard about one, that might fit me, last night.. Bill, check your PMs.

I'm in

Yeah - I suppose the SBR needs a little mixing up....I didn't hear too much from last year except it was dusty as all heck.....wasn't much picture taking either....I think I sense a little boredom setting in. It's hard to make a 2-day ride that is fun and do-able for all kinds of riders....which is the plan. Suggestions are welcome besides waiting for a weekend after some good rain....

I think I know what mtn bike you might be looking at......Dale and I were out at sunrise this morning and had a great ride at Lost Valley.....I will probably be at Castlewood tomorrow morning 7 am......got to get out early while the trails are froze so you don't tear them up when they thaw after the sun comes up.

Just saw a bunch of klrs, drzs, and big bmws rolling south on route O outside of Columbia. Led by a a KLR dude sporting a green Mohawk on his helmet. I'm hanging out at my inlaws for the holidays and you guys really got me jonesing for my KLR that I left back Oklahoma. If it was any of you, thanks for passing by, was nice to see some advers out on the road.

Look forward to seeing you at the SBR, don't know how you could make it any better. Ran it twice last year, early April was the best with the dogwoods in bloom

I purposely took a bunch out for that reason......I can't remember if it was 2010 or 2011 with a record number of drowned bikes....probably 2011 when there was a bunch of water. That sure isn't the goal.....I think...
