You want some honey mustard to go with them chicken strips?



Chicken strips eh? This coming from the trailer queen who trailered his bike to a road rally in WI? Hard for your bike to get chicken strips from the trailer. :)

Haha!
Actually went to see how grandma was liking the nursing home. Luckily there was also a ride going on. And the trailer has been tore up since last summer. We threw them in the back of the truck.

We need to get these SM bikes to whiteland for a track day. I've been a couple times. It's a helluva good time.

Mine has seen dirt. Although not as much as I'd like.

A noble cause for g ma. I've done that ride from Indy to central Wi via back roads. Long but doable.

Ever tried to find a set of 18/21 dirt wheels?
I got mine from Wheeling cycle supply in WV for 350 shipped.
They were used but great condition. He's always swapping and trading wheels.

The amount of time it takes me to get to dirt riding plus swapping wheels isn't worth it. If I were to get more into dirt riding I'd get a true dirt bike.

What gearing do you have on your DRZ? I have stock rear sprocket but 16 tooth on front countershaft. I'm thinking about going back to stock 15 countershaft. But I do like how it rides at 70 with the 16.

I don't even remember. Just got new chain and sprockets too but haven't had the SM wheels on since. I think 15/38. I'll check tomorrow.

These were from another inmates smugmug at the finish in Cabo... but I knew you perverts would like the checkered pants girl....actually there was 3 of them every day, I hated it, disgusting

The guy in the middle is also and inmate (mainroot) not sure if Nate on the left is. This was day 3 finish in LaPaz.

That is Mike another inmate on the right and in the middle is Dakar finisher Octavio Valle (probably butchered the spelling) Mike had met him when he rode in the Rally Mang. assit seat at a Dakar with Jonah Street. Mike was 10th overall and high finisher for our group, he also is the guy behind the Rally Navigator software, which makes it easy to make roadbooks from google maps. This was at Day 2 finish in Loreto last time I smiled that day, I crashed hard from some dehydration issues.

All the guys in the group supported by Baja Bound helped each other make it to the finish be it with medical/recovery aids for dehydration to parts and just a helping hand. A young kid from CA that was riding a Baja Bound bike was the over all M/C champ and just a great kid, unless you were a rear tire then he was abusive to you. This is a link to part of a video that they showed at the end of the Rally at the awards dinner.

I'm glad you made it home safe and sorry to hear about the fatality. I love riding in Baja and can't wait to go back again, it's a special place. I'd like to hear the stories sometime.
