Gotcha

And it doesn't snow in the East anymore.
Some kind of warming trend.

As far as shutdowns go, hell if I was riding and planned to see a National park, I just ride around the barriers, but that's just me, I'm a loose canon at times.



Sent from the basement. Hey Ma more meatloaf.

Cool2 Shake up!

I know it's a shocker, but I'm changing up my little inventory of bikes.

My R80ST is for sale. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=927056

My F800GS is becoming a R100 GS.

Sorted!

Pics of the R100 GS?

Always thought that would be a great bike. Is it a GS or a GSPD?

For what it's worth, I'm pretty sure that the Billings Farm is funded by the Rockefeller Trusts.

When I just looked at their website, in big bold letters it says that they are not affected by the government shut down.

Take a look.

Rhino, how long are you going to be up here?

So it is. The farm is apparently across the street from the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historic Park and under separate management, according to the Wikipedia article on Frederick H. Billings

Kevin, (or anyone)

Any idea where that forest is, that they mention as the oldest forest in the country?

It sounds like it would be fun to explore.

Rhino, Hi1

Well I was going to say that my barn is always an adventure to explore.

I think a few people could back that up.

Are you coming up for the wedding at Cascades?

Good to know.

I watched the whole thing just hoping to see someone run over the piece of crap with a truck and finish the job!

Nope, can't say I have any real sympathy either. If it were me that he pointed the gun at, after the cop shot him, I would have a hard time restraining myself from finishing the job. Imagine the adrenaline going through the dude that was "bike jacked".
