Well, they were great guys, gave me a tour of the facility and everything....well worth the trip (I could have handled the transaction by UPS).

I know where there is a 1982 CB 750 K two tone blue Looks nice, needs Carbs put back together, the guy has the new parts bought, he said he had $ 1700 in the bike and new parts, I bet he would take $ 1500 for it. Bike is in Burns, let me know if you want a number or just take a look.

Was about as fast as BLT

Little damp over in ol' Hickman Sunday

Pre-walking a path somewhere around Beaverdam Rd



Descent along Joes branch Road was a 6" deep creek for a couple hundred yards to the normal creek crossing. The crossing is normally 50 yards wide 12" deep.



It was flowing chest deep 30ish MPH.

The roads in Hickman really took a beating from the rains on Sat.,lots of washed out holes, ruts, & missing sections of roads. I'm guessing the parts that were still under water look even worse.

Holy Cow - Thanks for the update.

If you're not going to the LBL ride this weekend - Hickman should be a SUPER FUN RUN !

Could be the "once a year" conditions.

Heavy rains can really put a whoopin' on the roads.
