Not much on reading Reb, but love audio books, both of the above are available on audible.com, will give Marc a try. Hope he's as good as Vince Flynn.

I'm off work all of May and may be going to Puerto Rico to work for the month of June.
I can't ride as much as i want while i'm off cause my daughter is coming home from college and she'll only be home2 weeks then she's going to the shore to work for the summer so i want to spend as much time with her as i can before she goes. On the bright side,now i'll have a reason to ride to the shore a few times this summer!

Ride tommorrow?

Saw JD Rocks post, shoot him a PM a few mins ago but bet already way out in WV by the time he reads it.

Planning to head out tomorrow morning to 'splore a bit, would love to link up with someone to show me some of the ropes around here. Just moved down from the DC area, and the DRZ400S is demanding I hang on to her as she explores west towards Harrisinburg from Gordonsville tomorrow.

Anyone planning on being out and about from earlyish morning to late afternoon care to join up? If so, shoot me a PM!

Take a look at the Honda XR650R Acerbis Sahara Gas Tanks before you buy one they are pretty big (about 6 gal.) A buddy of mine has had this tank on one of his biks for years & likes it.

I took a very short ride up Union today. Too pretty to stay inside and out was about the closet mountain road I could grab from the office. I hope some if the rest of you got out.



When I got home from work I got after those spark plugs suzuki buried in this bike. Dang they are deep.

Good to see you the wrenching on the Wee. How about coming over and adjusting my valves.

I'll be glad to help you tear it apart, but i'm not quite sure how to put it back together. I dont mind the little stuff like plugs and filters, but I know enough to stay away from opening the engine. Call me though. I would like to watch.

Be prepaired for a few slaps to the helmet. Until Rhonda is used to riding it can be tiring very quickly. Id take extra breaks. My 2 cents. Have fun. Pics or it didn't happen.

Funny I never hit HB in the helmet...
The only time was when I would fall asleep back there
Heck I could do that on any road... Even in the twisties..
HB said I would still just move with the bike...


#1 tip .. Make sure you are ready for her to get on the bike...
Make sure you have a cue for I need to stop...

And have fun...

PS.. I was a passenger for 100K+Miles ..
Then I wanted my own...
