Nice Mike. I would like to see what a lil bike like that would do under my uh... largess. I had a Honda 185 dualsport for quite a while. Really fun in the technical stuff.

PhillyGal 1.... TURD 0. aye? Nice W Philly

I like the camping idea, ..but it won't be for this tag.

Does the 77 have the suspension and other farkles you were planning for the TURD?

Yep...only known problem is the motor in the 77 is toast...PO blew a rad hose and kept driving.
It looks close to what I want...but I can worry about little changes after it's roadworthy

and it's white....not a brownish turd color

I would assume that they'll do lunch at some local joint while they're running around the old stomping grounds. Maybe not. Either way.....

I'm "In" for SMIB dinner, wherever it ends up.

New Seat



Just received my new seat for the 1150. Can't wait to try this out on the in-state Maryland Saddle Sore

Unfortunately, my local shop is really really slow and it appears that it is going to take about 4 to 5 weeks to have my clutch replaced

If you're ever down at my place again or whenever we do some trails you're more than welcome to try it out. I know a guy who's got a little more largess than you who rides a DRZ125 with stiffer springs and some engine work. I'll probably end up getting springs for this bike, but I want to get a baseline ride or two in first to see how bad it might be.

Sucks about the slow shop. You don't think someone else could do it quicker (and probably cheaper) in a garage? Changing out a clutch isn't that big a deal...I've never done it, but wouldn't hesitate to do it myself in a weekend.

Where's it being held? I'll hold the fence and take pictures if you want to sneak in Hell, who am I kidding, I'll be right there behind you

Glad things worked out. It's not an adventure unless something goes wrong Sucks about the tire though...should be interesting to see where that goes.


In other news, this is probably the last time this bike will look this good

Oh man, I'm jealous! Nice ride. You know you can get a season pass at Taskers for $30.

I DID stay at a Holiday Inn Express last weekend in Ashland. I was going for the VA tag at Lake Anna on the way back Sunday, but somebody beat me to it!

Thanks I'm itching to get back out there. I keep forgetting about the season pass...I hope it's not just wishful thinking that I'll be out there enough to make it worth it
