Be careful what you ask for. I am just waiting for my fork tubes to come back from DLC coating. When I get them back I am looking for a test ride with a completely new setup suspension.

I just remembered that the last time I was on the XR was 12/3/12. Long overdue for a dirt ride.

That would be a handful on some sections, but with skills like you have it wouldn't be a problem

I could be in for a sat ride this weekend, and may have a buddy who would be in also. Keep us apprised on plans.

I'm probably going to explore some SC dirt roads tomorrow with the same buddy. After lunch.

Infidel, you working all day tomorrow?

I welcome any and all couch surfers if you are traveling through Augusta. I even have a well stocked garage for emergent repairs.

I've already got plans to ride my MTB Saturday. I can generally sneak away during the day.
