Cool Tom, the only part of concern is the driveway getting into and out of the property... it can be tricky.

Sounds like our plans line up with each other, let's make it happen. Who wants to head down with us? Like I said, my trailer will accomodate one more thumper, and if we get a 4th person interested, we could take my truck instead of Tom's Burban and stick one in the back. Willy B should know what his plans are in the next couple of days, and I am hoping he can head down with us as well.

We could probably fit 30 bikes on YOUR trailer.

I wonder if they make D606's in a 265/70-16... Oh wait, crap, then I'd need to trailer the "burb" down there...scratch that!

Flux dude, you got internet on your mower???

That would be like you guys going and not be able to eat or drink. Not going to happen. I sure would like to roost up some sand with that trucking thumper, and the rest of ya though. I haven't rode in the Fla. sand in at least 23 years.

Nah, this week I got everything done in 2 days. Hopefully work picks back up in the spring. My work schedule is weird. In summer, spring, and fall, I bust my ass and pull 6 day work weeks quite often. In the winter, I get to take a break, and historically I have worked 3 or 4 days every other week, and take trips and do shit around the house in between. But this year with this lovely economy we have lost double the number of accounts than I am used to. I had 80 customers before November. We expect to go down to 50 or 60 in the winter season, but this year we dropped to 35. Good thing my wife knows how to save money I reckon.

So, this year I have been busy painting the house, adding tile under the kitchen cabinets, and other such shit. Right now I'm trying to make a skid plate for my Tiger....
