Great Pic and use for a Honda, I can think of no bike better suited to operate as a tow vehicle. It's heavy, slow, stable, and generally found with a rider with same qualities listed above. AND somehow they always carry a tow strap.

& he's on a honda.
also, he must be faster than the KTM -- he's in front!

It is very much like the tortoise and the hare, right?

IF it weren't for that honda, orange guy would likely be spending the night in the desert. Now which bike would you want, the one that goes fast and leaves you stranded, or the one that keeps going, with plenty of torque (and speed IMHO) and gets you into your nice soft, warm bed at night.

No brainer.

We've been swamped at work lately, but I'll try to ride by and say hi, on my lunch break.

I get off work at 4:30 so I have 2 hours to kill before this starts.

I'd figure the guy on the Orange bike might learn some great skills without the Honda rider... He might learn to sleep in the desert, He might learn to keep his bike maintained... He might even learn that he is better suited for a slow, heavy, air-cooled, needs little maintenance Honda...

You never know what you might learn...

Bring the Honda's out on Sunday's ride and I'll eat my words if need be...

I'll even bring my big heavy slow bike

Yes, begrudgingly! I only hated you for one day! We're actually taking off next Saturday.

Tech 8 Boots, Tucson - A Steal

I offered up a good pair of Tech 8 boots for consignment at On Any Moto, today.

They are size 12, and certainly used, but in good shape (boot inserts included).

I hope someone here grabs them quickly. At $50.00, they are a steal.

They are here: http://www.onanymoto.com/

Dave, you missed a nice turnout at Nimbus...

Hopefully the people taking pictures will throw a few of 'em on here.

It was great talking with everyone and seeing some people that could not make the one in February.
