looking for a place to stay

Hi,
I am sorry if you find this post inappropriate here but I'm out of options.
I am a traveling nurse and trying to pick up a contract in Newport News hospital.
I had no luck finding a place to rent for 3 months.

What makes it difficult is that I travel with my dog, Amber, very friendly German Shepherd ( loves dogs, children and motorcycles). So private rent is my only option. It can be a room/apartment or house with parking space since I have a trailer with bikes.
I travel with my dog and motorcycles- difficult to separate ;)
Please, let me know if you have or you know someone that has a place for rent in that area ( for 3 months or more if contract extended).
Please, send me a message and let me know if you can help.
Magda

Ride safe

Got the day off and the evening to myself, thinking about taking the KLR and finding some trouble to get into. Maybe go grab that tag from the tag-o-rama. Anyone interested in riding this afternoon/evening?

DAAANG is Evil...!

So I'm sitting in the Batcave this afternoon ,pondering the
future of the universe and fact that I have no brake pads when in thru the front door with an inch to spare,
comes the devil himself on his Red Beast ,up the ramp on the
bike lift, then a quick cut to right to miss the wheel chock,and out to back door
while screaming some profanity with grin I could see thru his helmet.

My best advice is to just use the poseur excuse and say "I'd like to go riding
but my Wife won't let me". Trust me on this ,it's all true.

I have a Scorpion EXO 900 convertible helmet my dad gave me I am offering for sale or trade around here first. It is a XXL. He tried it on a couple of time one with a pad in the top and it never fit right. The visor has never been put on. Nice helmet it it fit me I would keep it. So cash or something I may need of equal value. PM me. I will be around after late afternoon Saturday. After Sunday if I get around to it I'll put it up on the flea market. $150



Oh the v shaped pad in the pictures is a camera case pad my dad tried as a spacer in the top.

Oh, and BTW guys, we are moving come 15 SEP. I took orders out in AZ working with Indian Health Service. We will be living a few miles from Monument Valley. To say that it is isolated is an understatement. Its in the middle of nowhere but 3 hours to the San Juans, 2 hours to Grand Canyon, 2 to Flagstaff. Going to get myself a nice plated trail bike soon enough. It's going to be a fun adventure.

I've really enjoyed my time here in Hampton Roads and meeting many of you guys...but it's time to move on down the road!

I looked at it and actually rode it before I bought my WR450. It has a Georgia title, as do all his vehicles. He's a young Marine type.

The bike was in ok shape. Don't want to turn you off on the bike, but here's why I didn't make him an offer. He told me how he rode it out in California... I think he said 200 mile trips and lots of 6' whoops. He's a pretty big guy at 215 plus, I would guess. After he told be about the whoops he rode I found a crack in the subframe. Not sure if that's related or not. Also, on the inside of his exhuast I found some rub marks from his tire... maybe related??? as those two surfaces should never meet. I asked him about it and he claimed innocence. I didn't want to deal with it so I didn't make him an offer. He was, at the time, fairly firm on his price, although I didn't push at all. He claims to have $1K in the title process alone. Not sure about that.

After a test ride (this was before I discovered the subframe issue), it didn't seem to have that off the line snap, but I don't know. Maybe jetting, maybe sitting for awhile. The suspension did feel really good. The front brake was great, and the back wasn't as good.

It seems like a good bike, but his price is about a $1K too high, IMHO.

His brake and clutch levers are both sawed off to a two finger length, btw.

That's about all I remember. If you want, give me a shout. four four 9 -ninety 3 eighty.

Jon
