Hey!! I resemble that remark!! Just for the record Vic always "checks six". And he has a black belt in common sense, self preservation, and some kinda sigmoid thingy.


Plus, Master Vic has ridden with and is well acquainted with FBM and some of the vile, heinous, and depraved acts of debauchery that have occurred "on the rez" and takes all necessary precautions--which are many and varied--there are no guarantees about whether any animals or liberals were harmed during the incidents... (yeah, I know--no video--no proof)

BTW, I take great risk to my person by bringing this to your attention, since FBM is a known assassin and could cap me and my progeny on a whim--


Damn Chuckleheads. Just when you think it is safe to...

Next time we will have a different route. Got a good one worked out. Sorry we missed the "Tunnel Creek" section today. I know where it is now!

Good stuff here. This is what I call the West Speed Road... that stretch will allow you to go as fast as you want which is why I pulled over and let you fast healers blaze out front...

Any of us who have cameras know how long it takes to download, review, edit and post these little clips. Thanks to all who take the time to do it.

So you got a nice shower and I know Reidinitaly got a good one earlier.... his was clear water... you got the KTM blood wash... orange all over....

Its a good bike to learn on. However, I predict you will not have it long. I get the feeling you are a fast learner...

That sounds familiar. Skid=mark said he knew several guys who "HAD" one...... Thought about it for a minute and imagined just like you indicated, probably a good bike to re-learn how to ride, coping with the gimpy wrist and compromized confidence after the mishap. In my mind's eye I can seeeee myself riding like I use to, and am optimistic this li'l blue bike will be like swimming with a dolphin. Once my mojo comes back (was very competent before, but never a really super dooper fast or top notch rider) hoping the learning curve will be quicker. Then maybe step up to a more studly bike.
In the mean time I'm really amped from reading about the WRR. Crawl then walk. Trying to get as far away from the weight and power that I use to love about my 990, that nearly makes me wet my britches since the rebuild. Friggin embarrassing but who cares right?
Thanks for the encouragement Vico1.
Picking up "blue" one this week, trying to get caught up in the shop first. You'll probably get sick of hearing about it (bike). I have around 500 pair of foamy ear plugs, can give you a handful.

Read w/Caution

In the early 20th century, an inept physicist speculated that the human body would suffer adverse effects if it were to exceed the 100mph threshold....

...this is my 100th post, hope no one's head exploded.
