It's also a rough crossing. Very easy to get air on. Not that I'd know anything about that.

I think I told you I ripped mine off the subframe jumping the railroad crossing in Crawford...I decided the Strom could not have a center stand for me...but hell I drag the BMWs center stand from time to time

I'm moving towards that idea and raising links. But I scrape the 1150's center stand with some regularity (when it's running).

And when do you want to mount my new tires?

7 chickens, 2 dogs, 1 cat, and a box of skeet. Or a non-running 1150gs+cash on your part.



I might consider trading a Glock 23+ 9mm conversion barrel for it but you're about as Glock poor as I am.

Okay, planning a ride this coming Saturday for a friend of mine but anyone else is welcome to come along. My part will be Saturday morning only and we'll meet at the gas station/travel center thingy at the corner of Hwy 67 and 144 in Glen Rose.

The pace will be moderate to slow due to his bike and street tires. It'll be 90% paved and end at the Sonic in Granbury around noon. Of course anyone can extend the ride into the afternoon if they want and pealing off to Loco towards the end of the ride will be doable for those that want to. Him and I have to be at the Sonic for a church fundraiser we're helping with.

We'll be kickstands up at precisely 6:30 to 7:00-ish.

Edit: As always in this thread the term "pavement" is used very loosely.

I like it but I think a full size and a sub-compact would suit me better. Mostly due to body type and what i can easily conceal. I've got some ammo and magazines to go with it if you're interested.

I hit the centerstand on rough roads, especially the Pandale road everytime I cross one of those little washes. I assumed its just being flung down and hitting the ground and then flying back up.

I thought it was normal.

Ghost and I have no problem concealing anything short of a cannon....... I used to carry a Desert Eagle in a shoulder holster and you couldn't tell I had it with a light jacket on.
