great ride last night

DSrider night rides not for the faint of heart...Riding late into the night and up the parking garage on a steamy Fresno night, it was even a little chilly on the way down the mountain. Next time lets go through the fence and see if the new and infirmed can keep up. Hot syrup and pasty pancakes even tasted good, I am not quite sure about the torched hash burned browns. Uncorked is the man of the hour, I hope he is "fresh" today, I will be expecting a full ride report, and Im not talking about the motorcycle.
The new guy just got a taste of the fun there is to be had at the helm of a quick and agile dual sport. Mix that with a group of psycho friends and you have a potent dose of adrenalin creating experiences, I hear he may even cut back on the viagra now. Here is to tax free breakfast, welfare gamblers that pay the difference, and how. Pocahontas would be proud.

Hey all-
Haven't been around for awhile. Just read some recent posts and am jealous. I'll need just a litttle time to get the head gasket on the Berg but haven't had ANY time for anything but work lately! If this continues I might snap like Chapman did at U.T.Austin in 1964(?). Or I could resort to the zombie-creating combo. of Benzodiazapene and Prozac .
Cheers

Heya Tom,

Sorry to hear you been down. Know how that is, all I gotta say is get the hell out of HUSAHELL. Ya I got the bike running... But that regina cam chain, well i think it snapped. Either that or the counter balancer exploded. Either way my berg is DONE. I drug it over to Wilson's, after wrestling with them for a while it sounded like they would give me 1.3k in trade for my berg (OUCH!) and I still owe 3k. Almost took em up on the offer... But that is only for a trade in. Soooo I would have to roll off the lot with something. The only thing they had that I sorta liked was a street legal 2007 KTM 450. All said and done I would have to finance 12.5k and the bike is only worth about 8k :(

It looked like an ok bike... But I could just imagine the freeway being an absolute nightmare on it. The wife even left it up to me. She made a great point tho... I am liking the road some more then before, and the rides are a bit far for a 450. So looks like I want an LC4 640. Since those are damn hard to get yer hands on, not to mention a HUGE price tag, I am going to have to dig myself out of a hole first then sock a few thousand away for a new toy.

Looks like it will be a year or two for me. I will keep in touch though. In the meantime, if anyone wants a project bike (currently NOT running) I will sell for $1600. You all know what is wrong with it.... Buyer beware it is a nightmare.

Michael

why not a dr used?? if I didnt get such a great deal on the cd I woulda gotten a new dr 650. better for the wallet than the orange but I see where you're combing from. you'd barely need to wrench on the dr wickeans more time for the wifey and riding. Steve might have a bitchin loaner bike for you. I forget her name..... bertha?

I meant the scooter, and I went for a ride out to bass lake, and man is my foot on fire again! all along the top of it to my ankle feels like it's in boiling water. I'm gonna ice it and elevate and zone out on the TV. Good day for a ride!

old railroad grade

rode last night up through Auberry, cut through Jose Basin and up to Shaver the back way. the weather was really nice and cool. Sorry about your ankle lane you would have liked the ride. Bass Lake? did you visit the scene? I found another lookout, but there was a gate. Musick Mountain lookout. I wonder if it is open. Scott got a chance to break in his DR on 17 miles of dirt.

I'm back from my riding my R12S to Montana. Great ride! OK for Saturday's ride, I may need a spot to meet you off the blacktop 'cause I'll probably trailer my lil Husky 250 or ride the drz there.
Thanks
Tim
