I have helped you with lumber. Talked about bikes a little. I only get to ride to work when I don't have to get the kids at day are after. There two big for the side cases and too small to ride on the back. Haha. Names Doug by the way.

One more plug here. Hopefully it might save someone some grief.

I picked up some Rustoleum Never Wet this weekend. Youtube makes it look awesome.



Unfortunately, my results weren't as expected. I dipped the boots in the pool and they came up completely dry to the touch, but it looks like I have been dancing with smurfs. Oh well. I can deal with it. Just thought I'd share. I shouldn't have to wait long for some rain to try them out on the road.

Been seeing a lot of Never Wet demos. I'll be curious to hear how it lasts.

Saw one demo where the guy took his iPhone apart and treated it and then dunked it in a bucket of water.

I don't think I'll be trying that...

Don't get clever and try it on your wind shield.

Fixed. They nuked it since I forgot the price. Rookie mistake.

Too heavy (for my abilities) and not enough suspension. But again, for what I do, it is often sufficient. A great fit for the most of my riding.

But as a single bike kinda guy, I love my Wee.
Spoken like a true believer like myself. My father in law just today bought a KLR 650, and as I was talking to him about it my mind is saying. Could have got the wee. (he was deciding between the two) But I guess this way maybe we can swap for a little variety. :)

There must be a planet in line some were. New Cycle World in the mailbox and the wife made brownies. YES!

Hay I'm sure someone on here has taken the road that goes up to reddish nob since they have paved the WVA side. How is it?

Same road, just a lane and a half of smooth blacktop now.

Twistie fun, narrow, light traffic. Watch for gravel in every turn. If you want to push your bike through turns, stick to 250 and 33. If you are trying to get to the fast dirt on the WV side, run this road. My perspective.

When you ride it, be sure to stop and check out the old USFS spring part way down. Somebody help me; 1/3 from the top?

Yes, it's about that far. On the left going down the mountain. If you're paying attention to the road, you'll blow right by it. It's easier to spot coming up the mountain.
