Yep, but you better be prepared to be gone all day long if you tag along on a fullmonte ride. None of that "My wife wants me home by 3pm" stuff. I've sent people home for pulling that shit.

I was up kinda near there the other day. Any of you guys ever been to Autocyclers between Englewood and Madisonville? (http://autocyclers.com/) Not much DS stuff up there but a lot of bike part and pieces and farkles if you dont mind digging. Its like an indoor boneyard. I was up there looking for TS stalks and handlebar switches.

I have no idea if/when I'll be able to sneak out and get that tag.

Python, this is up in your neck of the woods i think...

W.E. ROCK in Dayton this weekend? anybody?

Rockcrawling competition. http://www.we-rock.cc/



All the bikes that they deem beyond repair get relegated to another big room in the shop to be robbed for parts.

It took a lot of research but I finally found it . If I go get it it'll be late this week. I can't believe it's lasted this long already!
