Sidecar

Just throwing it out there that I am looking for tub to attach to my Dakar, or a complete sidecar set-up to trade for. If anyone hears anything send it my way.

Enjoy the week.

Drew, Sorry to hear of your untimely get-off. I am so glad you are not seriously hurt. That is a crazy road all right. I think sometimes all of us forget how tricky it can get (when you add tourists in cars to the mix especially).

I'm just reading this now as I've been in Cape May NJ without normal computer access. My son the Coastie had a seizure about 10 days ago. He was life-flighted to the trauma center in Atlantic City where he had surgery the next day to remove 90% of a brain tumor. He tolerated the surgery very well but there are many more steps to take and things to learn about what's ahead. So for the meantime my wife and I will be down on Cape May hanging out with the boy. Except for the giant scar and stitches on his head you'd never guess he had such a thing happen to him. He never lost his sense of humor or his sarcasm for a minute. Less than 24 hours after the surgery, a speech therapist was asking him a battery of questions to evaluate his ability to think. At the time he was hooked to a zillion machines and was heavily medicated. She asked him, "What are three things that are usually white?" Without hesitation he croaked, "Snow, paper, and presidents." My wife and I were on the floor laughing and although his face was all swollen you could tell he was smiling. We hope to be back with all of you in New England sooner than later. Keep riding for us.

I'm a little sore in a few places, and I have a rashed bike to fix, but I came out of it relatively unscathed.

Ohh, and the car I wrecked trying to avoid didn't even stop.

I am totally laughing my butt off! She is totally stoked. She is already scheming ways to get to places where she can ride it - not an easy thing in the city
I am so glad she is enjoying it. She can always come back and ride around.

Holy hell... I'd need a new wetsuit after a wave like that...



NH has some great surfing beaches. sandy beach breaks with real gradual bottoms. You can walk quite a ways out, which keeps even the big waves very gradual and easy to catch. Few rocks, too.

But then, head height waves are rare for the most part.

I just read her your thoughts here Dave. (She has her own account here, but hasn't developed the habit of logging in)

At first she laughed and nodded, but as she was standing at the kitchen counter pouring a cup of coffee I heard her mutter, "I don't know if I will EVER be able to go at a leisurely like THAT..."

Seriously, I nearly spit out my own coffee.

Perfect!

Don't be surprised if we do, but while she lives in S Portland, I live in Buxton. I have a LOT of dirt Roads within spitting distance from my house too. She will just have to come out and visit.

Warm fall day and a motorbike that gets under your skin.

Wish I had a real camera. Phone camera has bad lense.

Can't remember seeing a blueberry field on fire like this one.

nice pic of the field but when I saw blueberry fire I thought you saw the burn buggy going across a field which is also quite impressive in the evening....

Nope, sun bright between the clouds, came around the corner and the field was absolutely lit up red!

Amazing enough that it got me to stop riding for a few minutes.

The DRZ has a new home, and a much smaller little bike can live in my garage as a "hers" bike. LadyJ has not ridden in over 10 years - until this afternoon that is! She is already asking when she can ride it again. She's is not legal, but I fully expect to spending a lot of time watching her ride around parking lots and fields for the next little while









Bottom line....

Totally worth it!

Woot!! Another female rider!!
