Any old bikes in this section?

The old school rally is set up for April and I want it to be in Meadows of Dan so Barbie can ride it. The other locations are too far for a new airhead rider. Why don't you join us?

I hope some of you guys will be interested in this. I have been to two and they are a hoot.



Don't worry if you have new stuff; this crew welcomes everyone. You will see some really great bikes at this rally. Last year I saw two pristine old Guzzis. I know a few of you guys here; hope to meet more of you since my farm is in Surry County.

I voted for Meadows of Dan. My KLR should be old school enough to go

The weather gurus are talking about 5-6" of snow in the CLT area Sat nite.

I'm thinking about a trip to the hardware store for some sheetmetal screws.

I went for a ride yesterday on my four wheeler. The ground is real soupy up here in Troutman. We had like 4 inches but its all but gone today. I was thinkin just good knob spacing would be appropriate. No real need for screws unless you plan to wait for the streets to freeze over and ride on them. Good Luck, that sounds painful to me. (Ouch) I have Kenda Enduro tires on my 400. The rear does okay in mud but the front seems to pack too easily and stay packed. I was thinkin about puttin my full knob back on the front for winter wetness. Hasn't been a problem till now it has been so dry. Be interesting to know how the screws work out on frozen pavement.

No luck at Home Depot

I didn't have time to hit a real hardware store.... maybe tomorrow.

Yep....it depends on how "icy" it gets. That last snow never even stuck to the street down here, just an inch or two in the grass and the change to rain melted it pretty fast.

The low temp for Mon is forecast to be 14*... I'm thinking everything would be iced up pretty good after that...I'm off work Sun-Mon... and if they don't plow my neighborhood I could enjoy being a real menace.

I'm not sure that I'll have time to look for any before heading to work this afternoon.

But here's what the "real" thing looks like. CLICK HERE

**NEW** 5/8", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" length screws have changed from a #8 shank to a beefier #10 shank. The larger diameter shank adds greater holding power. (3/8" & 1/2" remain #8 shank)

You can use them on your shoes too!!



Not just for dual sports...click this pic.






But you are right about the screws not being the thing for pavement......for mixed travel a few studs would be the way to go.


This pic from the "studded southern NH" thread here in east is what I've been dreaming of........
