Im up for some dirt on Sunday if anyone is interested. I will have new tires on the DRZ. Tomorrow morning I'm riding up to Mortons with the wife to look for a pair of riding pants for her Birthday.

Hey and hi to all.

NoVa rider and i are meeting at the Four Seasons family restaurant across the street from Mortons for breakfast at 0945 this morning.

After breakfast there is a loose plan to ride to wheels off of our GSA's that will more than likely end up on or near Skyline Drive.Im sure knowing the both of us that there will be a meal stop somewhere that serves wonderful food from exotic places such as Mexico or Italy.

All are formally invited for our very informal ride.

If I remember correctly isn't it pretty hard to get a wrench or screw driver on those terminal because of where the battery is located?
