Dean, she looks great out there!

Thanks again for the help with the tires and leading the charge on Friday. I made sure Chaz got the old tires for you before I split Sunday morning.

Garrett.

^ Under the vid, click Share then click Embed, copy the highlighted code and paste it in the reply window.



I could get the one on PhotoBucket to play on my computer but couldn't get it to work here.

I find that cranking the back roads is a couple orders of magnitude more enjoyable.

Hi guys - I know I'm breaking all sorts of rules by cross-posting this, but I figured it's worth it. My bf's 2010 white F800GS was stolen in Alexandria this weekend. I posted the details here: http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=927260.
If you guys see anything, or don't mind spreading the word, I would greatly appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you.

I doubt that, but I do try. Thanks


Wayne, I PM'd your tutorial to myself so I won't forget again. Thanks


Funny thing about Sarah riding is all the shit I got from the wife about buying the bike. The wife knew Sarah wanted a bike but she got all pissed off every Sarah or I would bring it up. So when I came home with one and I got "the look" (married guys know what I'm talking about) I had to explain to her that it wasn't Sarah's bike. It was mine for practicing my Cornerspin drills. So the kids and I go camping with the bike and Sarah comes home knowing how to ride.

Now the wife is so proud of Sarah riding around the yard and is even trying to figure out where else we can take her for a larger riding area.

I find myself day dreaming about different track configurations I can create in the back yard without killing ALL the grass.
