I would like to try the Mex place in Fennville. Maybe they have gluten free burritos?
Me too Goat. Been too long since we've ridden together.

Come this fall I'll have all sorts of time (kid in school) and I'll hit you up.

Not one word about the condition of the biker? ATGATT? Helmet? Cutoffs and tennies? Pony tail?

Well, if Charlie hit that pedestrian with the Valkyrie there'd only be an ugly stain left in the street to that scenario is out.

Wow, that is 4 miles west of my house, Rockys that is.

If I hit her with the GW Hack, I probably could have flipped her up in the air, right into the sidecar!!

Notice the last line of the report:

"The pedestrian may have been drinking, police said."

Boy how many times you see that? Usually its the other way around....drunk driver hits pedestrian.

Drunk or not, hope she and the rider are both ok.

KLX is getting washed right now. First real rain up here in a while. The Kalkaska trails have been really dusty lately. Hope it quits before I go home.

It's a win-win

Well, give Pete (epix) a call, would probably go pretty cheap right now, might be more once its able to move under its own power.

Lol, not that it's a "Girl's bike", but I wonder if that's his GF's ride. He said she bought a TW on her own.

O well, good luck Charlie and Pete.
