Love to find a new job. Any ideas of one that offers full medical coverage, full medical insurance, life insurance, free career training, allowances for housing and food, and a cost of living allowance for living out of the country, 30 paid days of vacation per year, and a relatively simple method of moving up in the organization, plus guaranteed zero true pay cuts and usually a pay raise every year? Any ideas?

AFD... just tell your boss that you've already obligated yourself to bring a clip board to Nimbus (so you can be the official 'sign in sheet' guy).

I'm sure the boss will understand.



I sent off an e-mail to James Counts over at Nimbus about the parking situation, but have not seen anything back from him. I'll most likely call over there later today to see what can be done about it.

Thumb Nimbus Update

I just heard back from Nimbus, and they will cone off an area by the loading dock for the bikes this Thursday.






Please be sure to thank the folks at Nimbus for accommodating our Tucson ADVrider meet.

With our patronage and thanks, we can turn this into something really good!

Have fun guys. I'm not going to make it back to Tucson for Nimbus and the ride is starting to look doubtful.

Don't give up hope Russ!! Hopefully you'll be able to make the ride on Sunday.

I'll have a barley-pop for you at Nimbus.

MER-

I don't think Russ is afraid of your 'noob ride' or 'dirt touring' ride, or whatever the hell it is...

fuck it... you can set me straight at Nimbus.

Doubtful, but you can try...

Man, I'm rollin' with a rough crowd!

So. Contemplating switching out my 250 for a 400, most likely still an XR. Any suggestions? I like big(ger) power but do appreciate the lightness.
What say ye?

Last I heard, XR's didn't come in Orange and were not known for lightness or power... Maybe you should switch brands

The XR400's are great bikes. I'd totally recommend them.
Hey, is Chris from On Any Moto on this forum? Does he know about the meet up today? I don't know his handle if he's here.
