The KTM battery woe's continue. Rolled her out of the garage yesterday to meet Allen to pick up the tires and click-click-click. Still do not know if Odyssey makes a battery fit so ordered a regular replacement from battery-mart. 90 bucks with two day shipping.

Moral of the story is that will be no offroading for me this weekend...

Cause if the KTM was going to be a handful on these trails I am sure the Buell would be even more so. Gonna try to get out for a street ride tomorrow AM. Post up if anybody wants to do a little street dawn patrol tomorrow?

Cheers Ken

I saw a ton of adventure bikes in Hampton yesterday. Anything going on? Also, I saw an 1150GS and a 1200GS riding together in Williamsburg - I was in a silver Porsche, anybody here?

Riding Dam Neck tomorrow...

Who's interested????

I haven't been in a looooong time. Would love to meet up with a few of you guys and dust off the cobwebs.

Was thinking about meeting around 10 at the Food Lion...

Is the ditch in the same spot??? He he he.

Seriously, if I get one more guy to ride with me, I'm there. I need to ride!!!

If you're new at it, don't worry... I'm pretty new myself. No incriminating videos at least until the 2nd or 3rd time you ride...

Just looking to have fun. Ride at your own pace, help is available if you need it.
