the spray off your front tire is getting you dirty. Scooters have valanced front fender and legs skirts so your high heel and stockings stay clean and dry

Wow!
Oh, I've fallen a couple of times on a couple of bikes - including the XT - but nothing major. Had 8 emergency vehicles respond to a spill I thought no one saw! 8 Emergency Vehicles! Plus a cop! And a traffic report!!! For a freakin' scratch on my elbow!

slow down there, Billy - I'm making no promises that the road will be open when we go thru there. Everything was still there. So who knows.

Yeah, I know where it came from... just amazed me as to how much of it ends up on my legs! Wouldn't want to show up to a formal event with wet and dirty pants. And I didn't want to put the rain covers on my boots cuz - it wasn't raining! Oy!
Now I need to dry them out.

hey h8chains, any idea what time you will be at the bottom of indian canyon on friday? maybe i can meet you there.
hiya dale...sorry i missed your post.

i would guess we will be at the bottom of indian canyon off soledad around 12:30 - 1PM. the 600 mile service doesn't have to be done at 600, pick a less exciting day to get the gs served.

and maybe instead of heading back up, we hit that mexican restaurant in acton???? just a thought.

Edit: WOW! I guess I should've read the full thread before commenting. Razr, I also love veggies!

John,
Save some jerky for Baja.
