In case you didn't know, Olympia is based in Hendersonville. You can go there and they'll happily give you material for patches. I went to a seamstress in Hendersonville to get my jacket patched (don't ask) and it cost about $50.

I'll see if I can find her info if you're interested.

Norm
Thanks Norm but I already called Olympia and have contacted the local folks that do their repair. Just waiting on them to call me back.

No, that was taken at the Horsepasture area off Hwy 178, just north of Hwy 11, it opens again in the middle of March.

I'm still trying to figure out how to copy and paste, as Mel mentioned, it didn't seem to work for me.

Okay, so maybe it is my computer that won't let me copy and paste as easily as said, now I'm gonna try it from a PC that acutally has a mouse.

Nice pics hojo...

Don't know if it will help or not but here's the keyboard shortcuts I use all the time instead of right clicking the mouse...

Once you highlight the item you want to copy & paste...(Ctrl + C = Copy) and (Ctrl + V = Paste). If you use them enough you'll get used to the key stroke and it becomes a lot faster than using the mouse.

Yea, thanks for the tip but my problem is that I'm (still) learning this Mac (laptop). My son just told me that I need to push 'control' then right click the mouse. So I'm gonna see if it works by showing you the conditions Marc and I ran into last Sunday while trying to ride up to Hurricane Creek Rd, we ran into too much snow going up the Saluda grade and felt it would be wiser to get off the roads.

Nope, still can't figure it out on this Mac. I get to the photo and hit 'control' and right click the mouse, which gives me the option that allows me to copy image. However, when I come back here and try to paste ('command v') it just gives the url.

Wow , that sounded awful. Better a low side than a high side but still. Glad you weren't seriously hurt. Thats a wakeup call for all of us. These cold winter mornings with cold tires, maybe a little black ice, little too confident of a lean...it can happen to any of us.

take care

Mudslinger

its not a low side but hey , don't feel bad , we all fall sometime!

Well, I think she's getting used to me coming home from time to time and talking about laying the bike down but most of the time it's the DRZ . All said and done...she was OK with it but she said my daughters were NOT going to happy when they heard about and she's right about that. "I'll let you call them and tell them." She said. I said..."I'll just tell them the next time I see them." Yep, the daughters are going to give more of a hard time about it.
Taking the suit to be repaired Saturday and it'll be back pretty soon. Only have to replace the right front turn signal and all will be well....unitl nex time.

Hey Scott, does this look familiar? Make you just want to cry?
Give you the heebeegeebies?
Mudslinger...That's just nasty...hope it wasn't cold when that happened.
Looks like the kind of puddle you need to hit going bout 25 or 30mph and hope the gyro in the wheels takes you through! I'ts always a good thing to be able to laugh about these "incidents".

It looks familiar all right except its a miniture version of the mud lake I took a bath in.
One of the first things Clockwatcher told me was to "go around" the water. He is right.
Mudslinger....its good to have somebody that has shared the experience. Mud Puddles....you don't know how much fun it is until you try it!

Yeah, but what makes it so bad is I stopped, got off and walked the puddle with a stick to determine "quality" of puddle( just like they taught us in BMW off road coarse). Then proceeded to go thru too slow and I didn't "look ahead". So I was doomed from the beginning.
But your right..I jumped up laughing. It was a blast! Mud and dirt are still softer tha tarmac!
Why would you want to return home "clean" ??
I gotta get back up riding with you guys!
