OH, you've heard the earth shaking sounds of the Princess before. Stephanie refers to the RC173 replica as "The Princess".

Scratch on the MZ, though. Its owned by an attorney from Rochester Hills. Ted called to see if it was Ok with him to take it the 12miles up to the show. He wanted documentation of insurance coverage during transport and coverage while it was on display at the show.

SO needless to say, I said screw it, it stays here.

Might just try and get the SImplex together a bit more and take that instead.

The S-curves of Robinson TWP claim another hapless motorcycle victim: http://woodtv.com/2014/06/05/aero-me...orcycle-crash/

We lose WAY too many riders to a basic lack of riding ability.

According to the posts here, negotiations are still ongoing...

I mean, it couldn't hurt to ask right?

lol....you obviously haven't ever added up the possible Farkles that a Vstrom owner can add to a bike. Rear rack & a set of Givi's could easily cost a grand..... then another $500 in engine guards. (sides & engine)

Thankfully I bought my 650 with a good amount of stuff already.

Cycle Moore is always a favorite of mine. Lots of good riding on road and off around there.

If work doesn't call I'm planning on riding up to Gilmore in the morning. Anyone want to ride for lunch someplace after the show?

Well, since kawasakirob hasn't burned down his workplace yet it seems my schedule for tomorrow is wide open.

I WAS planning on hitting Common Grounds and THEN Gilmore, but I'm up for anything.

I'll shoot you a PM.
