I couldn't finish the ride in the dirt today because I rode the ER and needed to be on the 350 so there are times when that 350 comes in handy and it is fun to ride.... Didn't want to take the ER in the unknown swamp area but Kenny and Rod braved on...... Even here in SF there are a few unexplored areas....

We missed both of you today Oscar and Clark K today on our ride we ended up at Schnebly Redland's Winery had a great beer and BBQ.......Now I have to get the 350 back to running again and yes Oscar come and ride it....we keep putting batteries in all of these bikes and they need some exercise..... So is Scrub happening this year Alan?

Hope to see you guys soon!

Got the DRZ to Orlando last night after running out of gas in Eustis. Now I know at what tank level I will need to fill up.

Jerry, you can use it anytime you want. Just gotta go to Otown to get it. I'm not sure how much I'll use it so it could use the exercise.

I thought that line drawn on the side of the tank was self explanatory.

Didn't think you were home, place looked deserted. Where's the tahoe?

I'm thinking about selling my DR because I only ride it a couple of times a year, but I really like those couple of times, so I'm on the fence.
I've got to dig out my Mz and get it in the shop

Will get with you here real soon for some big thumper ridin'

Second weekend of Bikeweek, thinking it's the 16th of March

JoLinda will be there and maybe even Hailey, she's out of school that following Monday. The guys from ATL are coming with the side-by-sides and I'm probably going to bring ours too. Won't be able to keep up so I guess I need to get a gps too

It's still in the garage with no paint on it. I was probably in the computer room trying to get my netbook to connect wirelessly again.

Travel towels

I've been researching travel towels. Does anyone have suggestions? Also lightweight travel blankets? Travel Smith has a blanket that is 11 ounces. Suggestions needed..... Thanks:)

Aquis Adventure towels. Get the extra large. Best travel towel I've seen, soaks up well and dries fast.

You can get them on Amazon.

Tire pluggin"

Got a screw right dead in the center of my Goldwing's fairly new rear tire

Anyway...

What are y'all's thoughts on plugging motorcycle tires?

Wayne here at Citrus Cycle thinks I should replace it

Dayum! I hated to hear that

I plugged my last rear tire. The plug leaked very slowly, so I finally replaced the tire about 6 months later.


You can have a patch put on the inside, which is supposed to be more reliable, but I have never had a plug come out.
