The $500 in tires was for all the bikes.

I'm with ya' Coates, but if you can figure how I can get them down there and ride them there as well, I'm all ears

HEy boys,

Took a nice little 200 miler up your way with a buddy riding my other bike. He blew a turn on Doublehead Gap Road and flew out into the pasture! Must have dropped of about 12 vertical feet! Good news was he landed it with both feet on the pegs, throttled down and rode it out!!!! Thank the Lord there was no fence on this land! Could have been bad........

Anyhow, got some pics I will throw up later. We got caught in the storm and it got pretty rough!

Okay, that's TWICE I've fallen for that! I won't be clicking on any more of your links for at least a week.

Shit man, sounds like an interesting day. You should have stopped by. I just mounted the TKCs onto the Tiger. Dags flew his bike off that same road. Glad yer buddy made it out ok.

Thanks Billy your the best, but no way in hell I'm going somewhere everyone will be riding without me ripping wheelies all day. Plus I have a part time gig I'm starting Monday until I can go back to my regular job. I will be glad when I have this injury one full year behind me also. You guys be careful, because I will be ready to ride again soon.

Monday will mark one week since my accident, (I still haven't forgot that ride home in the least.) damn near went stir crazy with these four walls, just too high strung for the laid back life, you are too. Get your butt in the truck and C'mon. Further more, I'll bet there's an internet connection at the gig just so we can screw with coates from his favorite state.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! The 950 should always be shod in knobbies! What a machine off road, WOW!

(Pic was taken of FS58 (?) the one that comes out at Doublehead Gap rd)

JDub,

It's an IMS 4.2 gallon. I am sure on the IMS and I am 98% on the size. I just got it a monthy ago, very pleased with it and how it handles the weight.....

Go get one!

I talked to a couple of your coworkers today on Lavista Road. The conversation was fine until I dropped your name.
