Put me down as a maybe for the ride.

I may have to travel up nort (west) instead.

EDIT: Looks like I can make it. I just have to work until midnight and then git my ass up in time to ride up for breakfast. If I look like a zombie you will know why....

Enough of this stupid rambling about riding, only real riders do that

More important, the original "The Italian Job" (1969) is on Comcast 221 tonight

That is a great movie. I can tell you all sorts of facts relating to the Mini and that movie.

Oh the horror of the Soldiers Grove rally comes flooding back.

After cleaning up the u-turns, pit stops and whatnot, I have 137 miles. For those with time constraints, the previous ride had a 32mph moving average, so a little more than 4 hours ride from breaky up to Grantsburg and back around down to East Bethel. Drop down on 65 a bit to Ham Lake and everyone can blast different directions for home or wherever. Still need a lunch destination but it looks like a fun little Saturday ride.

Flying again.

I'm in an airport. At least I'm going home though. Might see if I can go and get the all new Rustic Road 114 tomorrow.

Hey all, I know it's short notice but, throwing the invite out to anyone that would like to join in riding the DakAL , an 800 mile Dual Sport ride around & through the Black Hills.

www.dakotaadventureloop.com

My Brother & I rode most of the 1st days section last weekend. He had a little mishap & ended his riding season

My RR of the ride http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=918833

I'm planning on going back out next week (end) & finishing the loop. Anyone want to come along? The Fall Colors are in their prime

Hey Triumph people - is there any reason not to buy an '07 America as a two-up bike? Figure a couple hundred bucks for rear shocks, a windscreen, maybe down the road get those hard bags from newbonneville...




07 is still carbureted, right? And were they 790 or 865?
