Does anybody live in the Appleton, ME neck of the woods? There's a CRF 50 there that seems to be in great shape that I'm interested in for my 7 yr old son. But, it's a long way to go from The Loaf to check it out. Was wondering if I can buy one of you guys a couple six packs to go take a look at it for me, and give me the thumbs up or down?

I'm in Appleton, but T is a way better judge of bikes than I am. I'd be happy to check it out if he can't though.

I love wiring. Always have. One major trick of the trade is Posi-Locks! (And Posi-Taps, and Posi-Twists, etc.)

Based on the crunch, crunch, crunch, I'm gonna guess 3 crabs.

Charger dongle....? is that really what they are called?


Yo IC...its March still. That 80 degrees spoiled us all. Any other year I can see the postings for a 40 degree sunny day.
"Its coming !" , "The sun has some heat in it!" "Snows melting!"

a fickle bunch are we....

oh yeah....Its coming!!! Tracks are open this weekend for those of us that enjoy that sorta thing.
