Are their any current WMU students on this thread? I've been seeing 4-5 different guys riding down my street on their dualsport, nice bikes too. Never get the chance to talk to em though.

INteresting ride home. Had dropped into the 40's, which i was dressed for...and then it started to sprinkle a bit. As I passed the colf course and approached the entrance to a couple od apt complexes which are almost acroos the street from each other, I thought I could see something along the edge of of the road thru the mist. Common area for folks to be walking along the road beweet complexes. As I got close I discovered they were 4-legged creatures and just then two deer decided to turn and dart across the road right smack infrpont of me. I did learn however that you can brake-squel the front tire on a Valkyrie on wet pavement and slide the locked up rear around about 45deg. Much easier on my 280lb XR600 than this 700lb + behemoth!!!

For you artsy types Art Prize in downtown Grand Rapids began yesterday. There are exibits all over the downtown district and there were probably a half dozen motorcycle theme exibits. This goes on for a couple of weeks and I'm guessing it will be real crowded on the weekends.

We’ve said it before, but it bears repeating; the GS handles in ways a two-story building was never meant to.

Taking collections for Faye Butler Training please spare some change.

Remember red and yellow make orange.so to think orange is better means you have to use two steps to get there.
