Hi all been a bit, took both the DR and the KLR out today for the first time in a while. When I got back the clouds and rain moved in killing my pool / BBQ idea so I decided to demud the KLR and gotta say minus my cracked fairings and some deep scratches. She almost looks new. Anyway hope everyone is well and if your every in the deep creek area and need a beer be sure to yell.

There are two overlapping tags. The Hampton Roads and the Williamsburg tags.

cross posting from the cat herders thread - was told it could be a group from tidewater. if so maybe you have the near miss on camera...

I was ambling along Old Mans Run AKA Tom's Park Lane (FR 1117) yesterday w/ a buddy around 3PM and almost ran into a group of riders coming down to Little Dry River Road. Luckily we missed and all was well - but I turned around to say high and the group split. Was that anyone from here?

The group was about 5-6 - newer bikes - some Honda XR/CRFs - and Klim Gear.

I only wanted to say hi

Anyone looking for a lightly used Tiger 800?

Ads in the Flee Market and Craigslist. I'm moving with my job and don't want to store the bike for 2 years or more.

If you notice the guy on the black klx had no problem with the tracks or that pesky tree! You all will be happy to know he (I) lives down here in hampton roads!

Figure I might as well introduce myself here as well. I'm back in town for the summer and since this is my first summer with the bike I know zero riding spots in the area. Since I only have a 250 the woods are where I like to be. If you all know of any close trails please let me know! Pavement isn't my friend

Just give it to me, and I'll make sure it's used once per week and I'll return it to you when you return, all for no charge!

My father-in-law had a similar offer for me except his deal included rats in the shed that would probably chew through the wiring and mice that might build a nest in the airbox or muffler.

I can make a better offer. I have a garage, will do the regular maintenance, and in two year won't put more than 30000 miles on it.

I've got all this, and will even autograph it when I turn it back over to you.

Those are all very tempting offers. I'm going to go ahead and consider them a little more in depth before making a final decision.
