I'm at 75% probable

Adam can't go with his new scoot so I'll have room in the TH for one or two bikes if anybody needs a ride down. Well, not just anybody, so please apply via PM . I may have to go to WV on business the 27th~29th and won't know for sure until the evening of the 21st. If no business trip, then I would like to leave on Thursday the 29th AM and return on Monday the 2nd AM. If business trip is on, then leave on Friday the 30th AM and return on Tuesday the 3rd AM so I can get 3 days riding in.

For anyone who might have a two post car lift in their garage. I just saw this cool bike holder. The guy uses a bracket.

Thanks Everyone, I am glad to be part of the Detroit Asylum now. If anybody is ever out this way hit me up. We, as in my wife and I are now living on Baseline lake. I try to get out on the R1200 as much as possible. Once the weather clears up if anyone that lives close wants to hit up a pizza and beer place that would be a great get together. My job keeps me busy a bit a way from here but thats the price to pay.

Somewhere back a hundred or so pages there are probably pics of riding through buildings downtown. Or was that in the old thread that got nuked? Did you read this one from the beginning?

Sounds like you need a power washer. Cheapo 120vac electric ones cost around a hundy. They get the job done. Shop around, I know someone makes one with a beer holder.

Tellico Plains -- tornado damage

Tellico Plains got hit by one of the many twisters that have swept through that area. It looks like the KOA campground suffered heavy damage.
