www.littlerockylodge.com hmmm . Something is wrong with our links.

Edit: talked to TXjames. He says my iPhone is trying to send me to a mobile site that doesn't exist. His computer works fine on both links but his phone is doing the same thing.

It's not so much how to stay there but how to get there....this is rather far for my poor little car to haul the bikes.........................

Simple solution: ride the bikes there.

Yard. Don't sweat it yet. I am sure a way will be found to get you and your bike there.

You guys seen the CCM GP450 Adventure? Not sure I'd be in the market for one but it's interesting none the less.

I like it but by strip down I guess they mean rings etc? Doing that every 15k miles wouldn't be to bad I guess.

Looks like a neat bike.

Its an interesting concept. I like the size of it for doing some rougher terrain. My main concern is its based on the 450x engine that BMW produced a while back. That engine was geared towards day riding and frequent maintenance. Not so desirable on a adv touring bike that needs to go at least 3k between oil changes. Perhaps they have addressed these short comings. I didn't read that far...

LARRY......I'd have to start 3 days out...(that would make it my RTW attempt...)



DAVE......I don't get to "exercise" besides talking to Rosie when I walk by..... I've told "ya'll" I'm not supposed to ride alone.....and I am pretty much by myself..................and I want to hear that "or"...

HOWEVER......that odd child of mine.....Ms "I don't condone your motorcycle riding"......actually now says she'll take the BRC since I offered to pay for it!!!!! Wonders do happen!!!!!!!!!!


I have to admit.....I was really mulling this over....going to RTB this year.....a lot of times I feel like the 3rd/5th wheel on the wagon.......just standing around and looking silly..................

I didn't think that you working the front counter last year was too silly. Ghost really needed the help and it was much appreciated. The rest of the time it's good to have you around when we run out of other people to pick on. So you better show up!
