If it wasn't for all the rocks, roots, trees, hills, mud, ruts, logs, sand, and lack of tar, I'd be a damn good off-road rider!

We used to try to get up Bluff Head in North Guilford when I was younger. To my knowledge none of us ever made it up. Back in the 50's my stepfather used to ride hill climbs there on street bikes. They would tie leather straps to their wrists and to the bikes for some reason. I looked for info on sanctioned events there but couldn't find anything. He's 85 now so who knows!

Didnt give a date just a general mud season closing. Found another website that said "typically. January 1 through April 1" Guess i dont need to worry about it

I'm at 2:30.

Won't be able to go with you on 5/1, there's a change in my work schedule because of coworker's vacation time. I have wednesday off that week.

Thanks guys. For whatever reason I got someone who didn't like me or the bike.His first excuse was that it didn't have 2 vin's on the bike, then he said the engine number doesn't match the vin on the frame (Which I confirmed with honda is the case and also confirmed the engine i have is the original engine mated with the frame form the factory.) However whatever he pulled the bike came back as "off road use" and so he said he won't give me the check. What a prick!!!!!

As I understand it is their job to make sure the vehicle isn't stolen. I have a copy of the PO's registration in Maine which was current through Sept 2012.

I do have the receipt that I went and paid the $10 so I am just try to bring it DMV and see if they will now give me the plates. Unless the overzealous inspector put some kind of hold in the system on me.

HE really was a complete jerk.

Fingers crossed, otherwise I will try and register it back in Maine at my friend's house.

They have the same thing on personal watercraft now, but it's a little more refined.

Makes sense! How do you quote just a part of someone's paragraph?
