Glad you're OK. At least there was no tail light to break. Don't ask me how I know.

Nice work Danny. You didn't even have to get your butt off the seat. We know you don't like standing...

i wish i could join you. I have a nephew's birthday and a friend coming in from out of town. I don't think I will be able to ride. I want to do a winter ride/ camping in the next month or two though.

If you use Smugmug, they have a free camera app that can auto upload pics. Take the pic and it's uploaded to your choice of smugmug location. Just checked the settings, you can also upload to Facebook, Twitter, tumblr, flickr, picasa, photobucket, & YouTube

Camera awesome is the app name

Hmmm. I know of a camping cabin that is empty. Has three beds, but we could fit another cot in there.

I'd give a free bed and some great moonshine to anyone who could bring me a brake lever for an '09 CRF450X........ do not ask why I need it. See previous posts.....

Break. Break.

I just walked out of my local DMV with a title and LICENSE PLATE for my CRF450X. Whoot whoot! Now all I have to do is install the Baja Kit and get it inspected. It might not be the right bike for slow trails and the farm, but man it will be a KILLER super Motard. Looks like I'll be searching for an extra set of wheels for street tires too.

No suggestions from me. 56 was messy west of 29 last week. Doubt it would be any better this week. There are 4 directions. Maybe we should try a different one. I'm not horribly picky on lunch, just prefer to avoid thai and Mexican and ... well OK I am picky.

Somebody else pick this time.
