I'd love to - but it seems that working Saturdays ... every Saturday ... is a requirement of my new job

I get off one day a work-week, and have every other Sunday off. Such is the life of a new car salesman in south Florida, but I've been in the business for years through my family, and it's satisfying to be back in it (although at a higher-status dealership than the little one we had).

I should probably have considered motorcycle sales, huh?

Have fun out there, and let's not have any more oil leaks!

Let me know..(Mambo, SpeedR, Ginger.Clark-Kenski, )...I can leave Sunrise....Sat. around 10:00 ish....... I will be riding a street bike so loop road is ok for me but no sand or real off roading Sat. If I get over there early enough I may poke around Jane's Scenic......

Andy you are planning on going up earlier correct? I have a Dr. Apt. Sat. at 7 a.m. so cannot leave so early....PM me if you decide to go over later in the day......

Also Fener6 the old guys that do the Hare scrambles will be there......most of them are Wanker's too......

Oscar you can ride the Boxer over to the Seafood Depot (Jan. 26th) if you want...John had it running this weekend....If you are not working..................If you are working.....you may want to pop over for a visit Sat. Late evening......

Kenny----I still have that blue chain in the garage if we ever connect and if you still want it......LMK

Definitely NO MORE BROKEN CHAINS or OIL LEAKS..........I am still getting the oil off the ER and have washed it at least 4 times since the event..........

Now for this weekend....anyone riding around the Arcadia, FL area......I am camping with a group at the Peace River Campground...Shelter #1 and we are going to go fossil gathering and possible canoeing.......I am going up on the bike Friday night and returning Monday. Stop by if you wish or come and camp with us.....we usually do the primitive camping there but this time we are a group with kids so went for the tents around a Shelter......stop by if you are in the area.

I once sat on what seemed a 1" lower (by special order) Corbin on a dealership's used DR650, but something was really, really off about it. It was as if someone used a new Corbon outside, but stuffed it with a cheaper foam inside. It was nothing like any Corbin I've ever seen, nor like the Corbin I own for my other bike.
Seat Concepts seat installed!! Feels really good on a short little ride, big test will be this weekend.

Hi All! It was definitely fun riding with you guys in The Squares this past Saturday. Not sure if it was fun or not plowing my heavy KLR through the sugar sand though! I really thought the D606's would do better than that. It was a workout, cant wait to do it again!

I switched out everything to street mode for this weekend. I'm doing the American Legends Motorcycle Rally this weekend. It's 1000 miles in 24 hours for cash prizes. Should be interesting to see all the full dress cruiser and Goldwing guys faces when I pull up! I know something they don't though. My bike gets nearly double the MPG than they do and I've already been cross country on this machine including a 1000 mile day.

Next weekend, I'll see you all at Dania. Looking forward to those old bikes and vendor area again. Last year I picked up a book by Carlos Caggiani that outlined his travels on a motorcycle trip around the world from South America. Awesome read!

Need help

Anyone near wpb able to help me sort out a ktm 625?

The valves sound way off from the knocking noise it's making. Not sure if there is anything more to it. Other than my gratitude I can repay with beer, liquor, wings, pizza....tacos al carbon???

Just want help from someone with the right tools and knowledge.
