Nice pics! Looks like you guys had a great time. Will have to join you one day.

I finally got a couple hours to myself today, stopped at the DE City park during my short ride:

Dang Hack, that's one clean Nighthawk.

A couple more pics from today.

We almost had one of them fancy Harley boys along for the ride. I guess he decided to get a sausage, egg and cheese croissant that Wayne highly recommended.



And a trio of Stroms coming down the road...

Hey All,
I saw a mention a couple days ago of a few DDBs heading to Laurel Fork this year, but didn't see a list of exactly who... I'm going to be heading down there for some riding on Friday, but I'll have to continue heading south Friday night or Saturday morning for some family obligations (batism/god father for my niece). Is anyone here heading up on Thursday for Friday riding?

Oh, and is anyone interested in riding around the C&D in the next couple of weeks? I'm going to be putting my new knobbies on in the next week or so and want to try them out.

Stirby, Badcold and I are going on Friday. At least that's the plan but all things are subject to change around here. I hope Laurel Fork is open that weekend

Wanna add about Laurel Fork. There will be some guys there earlier in the week. At least one SMIB that I know of, he's mostly harmless just approach him with a beer and a cigarette and he will be your friend for life.

I guess the Strom is an inferior ride. The Hawk didn't need no stinking knobs.

Any way to identify this particular SMIB, or should I just go around handing beer and cigs to everyone?

As for tires... I'm trying the Michelin T63's as they've gotten some good reviews and are cheap as hell @ $55 each end (Motorcycle superstore)... Actually, I think I got them a little cheaper in the fall, but still pretty cheap.

Very cheap compared to a TKC80. This may be my next tire. Thanks
