Kevin ... will take you up on that offer. Gives me a good excuse to check out your shop. Keep me posted when you're looking for saddle time....

Rob and X-Factor sorry about not showing up I hate you guys waisted time waiting for me. I left the house at about 8:45 and went to Bo for some grub. I had some new tire mounted up so was looking forward to the ride. As soon as I turned into Bo the rear tire blew. Called App.DR who was also on his way to meet up with you guys and he came and picked me up with the trailer. We ended up getting the tube changed out and got to Colletsville round 11:30 so yall where long gone. Still had a good ride, found plenty of dead ends but also some really nice double tracks and old logging roads w/ some creek crossing. X I got your number this am so couldn't call you and let you know.
App. DR that a ton for the bail out bro. The foot will be ready to go this weekend wether it likes it or not.

The shop's not much but you guys are welcome to swing by anytime. I'm open M-F 9:30-5:30pm and riding on Sat. & Sundays as much as possible! Of course if any of you meet up with us here one morning to ride you can check it out then too. Can't afford to stock a lot being a smaller outfit, but I can have about anything in 1-2 days from most of my distributors like Parts Unlimited, Tucker Rocky, MTA, WPS, etc...

Can relate to the flat tire. I've got a fettish for deflated rubber ... cause I'm always riding one.

Didnt' slow us down much.... what's with the foot comment. Have you been wiping out again? A sign of true commitment to the apex.

Nah it was just a stupid move in the dirt and low speeds. Grabbed a handfull of front brake comming down a hill and got dumped. The weight of the bike helped twist my ankle and foot in the wrong direction. I really thought it was broke at first but I stood on it and could move all my toes so it was good to go.

I'd like to make the ride to Richlands, but I haven't put a knobby on the rear of my buddy's old XT550 yet. I have cleaned up the front drum brake so now it's more kind of stopping the bike than before. Catch you guys on another ride.

Richland in the mud......puff puff pass....

I may ride up around Roan Mt. May even take the panzer. Give the KLR a well deserved break.

Not really feeling like a Richlands ride tomorrow. It might be a little too H.A.R.D.C.O.R.E after the rain and snow flurries we had this past week.

Me and at least 1 other guy are meeting at the Collettsville store around 11am if anybody else is interested in taking a more leisurely ride. Probably do the Maple Sally/Edgemont/Jonas Ridge area thing and then maybe Old 105 or something. Nothing too extreme. Not really positive but I'm sure we'll ride around in that area somewhere.

Anybody's welcome to join if interested...
