Yes, I'll be on the 530. I did an easy break-in ride at Spec Friday afternoon. It's just not the same riding alone.

I'm going to advertise the WR450 next week in. The min I'll take is $4500. I just put on a new CRD skid plate, GRP V4 damper mount, (damper is now on the 530), and new FIT hand guards. There's not even a scratch on the bike,,,it looks brand new. I think the WR (now dialed in) is a better/faster woods bike than the XC-W, but I love the suspension of the KTM. Plus I can't take being the only non-orange bike anymore.

I will spread the word to some of my hard core Yami friends who have been looking for a plated WR.......

Out is good!

Picture this....
you are riding and just where Dallas' jeep is you stop and that litte hole is nice and full and from the ground around it it looks like a few inches deep. Just plow through the middle right.



why puddles scare me... give me a creek or a river anyday...

Ride safe

I ran into Courtney and Melvin at West Marine yesterday and invited them to come too.

Right now the forecast is for scattered showers 30%. If the chance of rain increases to 60% or above, we may reschedule. I will post Satuday night by 10 pm if this happens.
Rick

It's on fellers!

Weather looks good.

I am leaving my house around 5:30 and will head up to Brewton to meet Madhouse , Rob, Dandy Dan and whoever else is coming along at the Wow Wingery at 7 am. From there we will head to Reton for breakfast and meet Frank.

Who's in?

It was great having Phil along today. He rode like a vet for sure. After Phil split off in Burnt Corn, the rest of us headed north to Beatrice to pick up 265 north to Camden.

I waived Steve around and Madhouse followed with Dan and Cathy hauling ass 80 mph up and down, through turns. Rob, Frank and I were coming over a rise when a deputy sherriff pulled out in front of me....talk about decelleration!!!!

At Camden Steve, Dan and Cathy decided to ride 41 and head home as they all had to be home early. Frank left for home after we stopped for a drink at Hardees. After that Madhouse, DFR and I made a dash for the ferry (making it just in time).

After the ferry we rode 29 north to cr4 which is a dirt road. Madhouse took off while Rob and I weren't far behind. I'm really starting to appreciate the dual-sport bloodline of the Vee.

When we got to Pine Hill, we were all still full from breakfast and decided to keep on truckin. Once we made Lower Peachtree, we picked up CR35 which is one of my faves and boogied south. Tony wanted to show me the west side of Clairborne Dam so he took the lead and quickly steered us onto a nice dirt road that was probably seven miles long. We hauled ass down that road on our Vee, Wee and Tiger-eee. All three bikes love the dirt roads.

After a quick stop at the dam we rode to Perdue Hill where we split up and headed for home. By the time I hit Repton, I could see a huge rainstorm ahead so I stopped and donned my rainsuit.

It was quite nice riding through the hard rain to Brewton. Once in Florida, it became the sunshine state so I removed my rainsuit and rode home.

410 miles in 10 hours. Hung out with some of my favorite people and made it home safely.

A good day!

Dang WR, I only rode 356 miles. The only rain I got was 5 min. after we split up. It was just enough to make the road steamy. Thanks for the great ride guys. Here's some pics.
