Good for you! We will look forward to the 20th...

That ride is starting to develop into a real DS thingy...

Super clean!

I've been looking for a fixer-upper DR350 for awhile.

No magic button, but then again it's not expensive, and needs to sell asap.

1993 Suzuki DR350 - $550 (Pell City)





1993 Suzuki DR350. Bike is cold natured and does not have electric start. To much for me. Carb was rebuilt but needs adjusting. Oil drip coming from somewhere. Does not smoke. Looking to sale or trade. 2five6 four04 78twofive Need to sell ASAP !

What did you get after you sold the BMW 450x to Doug K.?

Waited a while then purchased a heavily modded DRZ, which I loved, then picked up an 07 450EXC. I hated it at first, but my friend cahoona7 hooked me up with proper suspenders, so all is good. Only ridden a few hours with new shoes and suspension, but really like it now. Still have SE and GS.

No time to ride until after April 9th, then ready to ride this summer.

Cool.
Morris has invited Roy, Melvin and me to his place in northern Georgia for a week of dual sporting in the tri-state area the middle of April.
I'll be dusting the spider webs off the DRZ tomorrow and prepping it a bit for that ride.

Debating on buying Dirt Bagz, Rolie Bags or maybe the Giant Loop thing cause we'll be doing several overnight trips away from Morris's cabin and need to tote extra stuff.
Gotta decide quick.

If It helps any at all I LOVE my GL bag. If you wanna take it for a spin let me know. I'm sure I can work out getting it to you in time...

Thanks Shaun,
Suppose to have a group huddle and I'm gonna pin Morris down about how long we'll be away from base camp (1 night...2? ) and that will help me decide.

If its just some overnight loops, then back to base amp then I should be fine with just a few items.

Thanks for the offer and I just may ask you to use it.

No problem. They are kind of spendy so I'd rather try before I buy- though I don't even do that with bikes, so I wouldn't take my word for it

It's a quality piece of kit, and I'd buy another based on my use so far

Thanks Vic!

No campin. Traveling lite. I imagine if I take a couple pairs of panties, a toothbrush and some socks then I'll do OK. Still gotta get the lowdown from Morris.

On another note, Reggie just sent me this.
Its our ride in Cheaha when Apperson bought that new 690 with 0 miles and thrashed it immediately.
Kentuck doesn't look that bad on this movie that Reggie made:



Maybe it ain't that bad, but when a dozen or so people have spent a bundle on showing up for a ride that's nearly 300 miles away,,,,then its sure good when nobody gets badly hurt.
Certainly no time for racing since it ruins everyones day when there's a injury.

Been a while Dirty! Weather's looking good and with the recent rain, conditions should be just about perfect. Unfortunately Uncle Bill's is closed as Rick pointed out, so we'll need an alternate plan for lunch. Heard from Dan W, he may show up on his TransAlp.
