To all P-cola riders, you should be aware that there is indeed a gentleman amongst y'all! (all y'all?)

SingleTrackJeff helped me IMMENSELY by providing test rider, financial, bike pickup, transporting, and storage services for the 2008 WR250R you may have seen in the Pensacola Craigslist.

Having Jeff to check out the bike and pick it up for me made it easier to decide to buy the bike sight unseen, from a seller I didn't know if I could trust. I'm still taking a risk that the seller will forward me the title, but I'm confident all will be OK.

The point is, Jeff, you're a gem! THANK YOU! I'll see you in a couple weeks when I can drive up from St. Pete with my trailer.

Thank doG for advrider!

Actually this is NOT new news. Jeff, in spite of his denial, is indeed a gentlemen and scholar.... and he know how to ride a motorycycle.

He told be the story of when he checked out said WR... I can just see these youngsters (early 20s) thinking... does this old man really know how to ride a motorcycle?

I think he resisted the urge to show em how a wheelie looked but he did show a little controlled breakskidding....

Hope the bike works out for you...

Kudo's to Ram Mounts

At some point during the process of taking a sand nap and having a 400EXC driven up my ass, I discoved that my Ram Mount had a factory defect. Well, thanks to Ram Mounts lifetime warranty, a free replacement is on the way. So, I got that going for me.

Why don't we (all interested) ride over and check it out.
Ed's Seafood would be a nice touch too.
Hate to miss this, especially if there's TAT discussion, but I need to catch up on some things around the house.

I probably won't enter an ass kicking contest anytime soon, but I'll be fine.

Must be a 1%er ride.

14300 euros = $18813

Fook, the fee rides around here are a bargain.

Your Beemer would have been a hit over there. Sorry you can't make it.

Talked to Melvin about running the TAT next spring at the BMW Pensacola swap meet (picked up some killer deals on a Bomber jacket and jet boil thing) and this is gonna be fun.
Good chance we can time our end run in Arkansas to intercept Diann with the big trailer. Overflow riders could rent a car to gang-up for the ride home.
Would be nice,,,,but not a big deal if the trailer thing can't happen.
Our butts would probably be happier.

Its a long way off.
Plan/dream and let it be known for suggestion/tweeking.
Interested so far: Melvin, Brad, Bob, Dallas, Brett, Rick, me.

No mention of them giving up their luggage though.

Tony, I'd like to hear some details on the TAT ride, but it sounds like you're going to have a full house
