Gongrats man - Blue is Cool too

Oh boy now you got it all covered.

so the question is "who is riding where, and now what, this weekend.

How bout a nice breakfast run through blackwater....Maybe Sunday....

Anybody else got plans - looks like we've traded hot muggy and wet for hoter muggyer and dry.

Something NON FASTBURN and cooler!

Joe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe she bought you the 990"S" Does she even realize what she got you???????????? That is the shiznit of all KTM Adventure bikes, due to the long travel suspension, more dirt oriented, and just a BAD ASS BIKE!!!!! You know you are going to sell that beast to me when I get ready to transfer!!! You know how rare the "S" models are??? I am beyond jealous!!!!!!!! But honestly very happy for you!!!!

hey froth, that looks like a nice ride?
doesyour purse fit into the little black frames by your rear wheel?
did it also come with a quizinart attachment?

good luck with it and be safe breaking yourself in on it.
i got a bad feeling about this bike and wonder how you'll keep up through the sand???
fbm

wow i looked at it again and it looks like someone hooked a dumpster onto the back seat or is that the a/c unit?
also those mirrors have to go.

Froth,

Lets plan on meeting in Crestview/Antoch Road/HW90 at Circkle K/Tom Thumb? as early as you want Sunday morning then we can go to Holt and up Normal Riley Road and back to Baker for Breakfast then hit the four lakes of blackwater and back home for 120 mile or so ride... you will enjoy...

I too am skeered o dat monster but its really fun so I go slow and feel the love....

All welcome and we can meet at variious parts of the loop. NO dirt for me on the Strom at least not yet.

Who all is in? I suppose swimming could be invololved if any one wanted to take a dip, we cross plenty of places to swim or at least get wet.

This is the same route where we ran across the big rattler...

Thanks formthe kind words! Riggy said you would like it, the guy I bought it from had it Farkled out at the dealer when he bought as a leftover in 09 you name its on there he even gave me the GPS a gamin 276. The guy has never heard of this site!
The bike is freaking tall I am on my toes when stopped, I can barely throw my legs over it! Dude you are welcome at any time to come by here and borrow it for a beast ride, it will fit you like a glove! It is my dream bike, unfortunately I will never ride it to it's full potential!

That big crate is the mini fridge...it came with everything but a pair of balls, and I am having a hard time finding a pair!

Speaking of big balls, Riggy is flying out in the morning! He is going to be missed!
