Good motogp night @ foxden

Biker, I just got the NUVI mounted but so far look nice and worked well for the evening ride over to Barboursville. Much nicer than my old Magellan Crossover.

Tilak, I think he may be back in town in a few days soon. I believe his computer is down . I know he wants to sell that tire so keep on it. I'll mention it to him if I get a hold of him.

I just heard from Skippii, and he's just busy making some new arrangements. As I understand it, he'll be in NC visiting friends for a few days and then back around here first of next week. I'll pass on that your looking for the tire. I know he has lots of other bike parts, odds and ends, that he'd like to liquidate if anyone is interested

This looks like a good one also.
Wow! The Harbor Freight trailer at $299 has even the Lowes model beat.
It does look like the "flatbed" trailers are the leaders in low price. My problem is lack of storage space, so the trailer-in-a-bag concept is appealing. Of course saving $800 is also appealing. Truck's getting old in the tooth so one thought is to unload it and just get a 5x8 trailer in it's place, which could be used for bike as well as general duty.

Good advice from all... and thanks PSU for look-see offer of your bag trailer. If/when I get serious about it I'll probably take you up on offer.

Man, you guys are having way too much fun!! Sounds wonderful; maybe one day MY son will get into motorcycling... (we are planning to do a backpacking/camping trip in the near future, at least) Thanks for putting out the invitation; we've got things going on over the weekend so we can't join you this time, but one of these days hopefully. Enjoy and be safe.

You have a yard don't you? What, are there covenants where you live?

I like to keep my trailer next to my other trailer beside my camper across from Skippii's old wrecked Ninja and the old appliances I have scattered around for the neighbor kids to play in. But you mostly can't see any of it because the grass is so high.

(I made a lot of that up...)

Been a while since I've seen some of you ff's. I would like to hold another Cat Herder dinner on Skyline Drive some evening next week. Pot luck style, meet at Swiftrun Gap and ride a few miles then stop and cook at an overlook. What day works best for folks

Or we could meet at Hone Quarry or Reddish Knob

Bike or car if you care to bring someone.

Covenants in Possum Holler? Are you kidding??

But I do have limited space to "hide" stuff, with what little level ground we have inaccessible across a small creek and wooden pedestrian bridge. And I hate leaving stuff to rust in the rain.
