You should go down that same road at lunch today.

Dropping the Multi off on Monday for some routine service/recall work I haven't yet had done.

Thanks for any insights.
Did you check J&P cycles? Nolan seems like something that they would have, can't precisely remember seeing them there but if it's on their site chances are good you can try one on.

Yea that was me. That was my old 530 Spenser was on. We traded a few times during the ride. He now owns a 350XC-W. Goes way better on it then his 300XC he had.

Haven't been on the forum for a while, I have been burning fuel in the Tenere and the 350. Was able to put 50 miles on the 350 around a Hare Scramble loop and a couple hundred on the Tenere last weekend.

Heading for the Supercross this weekend. Hopefully Dungey can muster something for the other Ryan at his home race.

I thought it might have been. I talked to you after the ride, when you guys were pulling out. I had just gotten my 350. I'm a bud of Layton's and know Jim casually. The name is Mike McConaughy and I've race some of the IERA stuff, Gusse's and D17 in the 50+ class. I've been on various bikes in the past, Husky, GG, KTM but am really liking the 350, even though I haven't raced it yet.

Also compete in trials and we just got back from a 3 day ride in TN and school down there. See you around...

'ello chaps!

Hey buddies,

I know we've probably never met and never will but I lived in the "fine" old state of Iowa until a year ago. I've just finished a video of the Anamosa Motorcycle Museum that I forgot I had. If you've never been to it then check this garbage out. You might recognize one or two of the guys in the video. If you do then you win a prize.

If you don't want to hear some music and part of an audio book about riding a bicycle around the world then you'll want to mute this sucker right away.

So...anyone know of a good local deal on a Yamaha TW200?

I would like to find one for 2 reasons...1. to teach my wife how to ride and 2. to putter around on myself and go explore places the tires on the Multistrada won't let me explore.

Would also consider something similar but my wife is short so a "full on" dirtbike isn't going to cut it.

Well, the bike is in the shop getting serviced and the K60 mounted. Doug at The Cycle Clinic said he is going to talk to his distributor to see if he can get Heidenau tires in. He's impressed by the fact that they are still made in Germany and with all the calls he would like to carry them.

Love the K60's, you will have to live with then for a while, long lasting tires.

I hope so, the last tire was nice(Pirelli MT-60), but at $200 it was nearly bald after 5,000 miles, give or take a few miles. Doug was really impressed with the Heidenau...lets hope he can carry them like he wants.
