PM incoming.

Didn't you own a Harley before, or am I thinking of Greenfly?

I had a 47 knucklehead on a rigid frame for awhile when I was in another line of work, but I didn't own it. Definitely not a two up bike.

I have 2000 Honda Shadow Aero VT1100C3 that has only 15k miles and I just decided this past week to sell it. Looking to get into more adventure riding.I've owned it from new and it has been a great bike to ride. If interrested PM me for details.

Tourmaster Synergy XL(46) Electric Vest For Sale

Well everbody seems to re-working their winter bike wardrobe. I figured I migh as well too. I just replaced my Tourmaster Synergy XL(46) Electric Vest with a Medium (42). I Bought the 46 from Sprocketz about 1-1/2 years ago. Since then I've lost about 20 lbs and the XL is now just too loose. It's still in like new condition. I paid $140.00 for it. The first $50.00 takes it.

Cool! I'll bet the recent rain will have created a bit of mud. From what I heard this evening from two riding buddies, it sounds like tomorrow will be senior citizen day-most of us in the +50 crowd.
Note to self- Items to pack:
-pplasm wil be there so I'll need a whole case of tear-offs
-Red Bull
-prune juice
-Metamucil
-band aids and duct tape
-aspirin
-Ben Gay
-portable electric defibrilator
-splint material

Michub- Sorry about the lack of notice. I didn't know about the group convergence until I got home from work today. The good news is that the "trails" will be well ridden in for your Sunday ride. Should be easy to follow our route-look for broken plastic and control levers, de-barked trees, etc.

Never heard of this place. Did I read right that it cost $70 if you don't have that pass?
