I stopped by there yesterday

Hi Dave / Brian, it was great to meet up.

SD and TFL have been working hard on the bike and it really looks very good - amazing really! There's still a few key bent/busted parts though and he's going to miss his wind-screen.

Logistics will be interesting once Dave rests up a bit more and gets underway - but he's got a route in mind and can likely figure something out if you've got something he needs. He's got big plans, that boy!

have fun Dave!

Thanks for stopping by Doug, fun chattin with ya.


Ok I'll make a list of things I need.

The headlight shroud would be nice, but we made a bracket that fixes the headlight from moving. So the only reason to have it now would be for looks and/or to make up some kind of windshield.

My throttle side peg got twisted to hell. In fact the arm that holds the peg also got twisted a bit. I was just going to have my brother put my spare one in a $5 flat rate box and ship it to Mike in Ohio. So I don't know if any of y'all want to bother with getting me one.

Other than that everything is doing good. I think I'm just going to take a 5 gallon bucket, cut it in half and make a windshield out of it. Maybe if someone has a windshield then that would save me some work. I don't think anyone does though.

Thanks for the offer/help guys.

Brian and I went for a ride today in the dirt. Everything on the bike seems to be ok and working well. My injuries seem to be fine enough to travel as well. Brian's arm also seems to be fine, so he will be out riding more often.

Today we all went out for a little hike. We went and found a cool waterfall. It wasn’t all that big, but still pretty cool.




Later Brian and I went for another ride in the woods. Very fun trails with lots of whoops and gravely stuff. We rode into the darkness then slabbed it home.

Well my SD card for my camera crapped out on me. All the photos that I hadn't transfered from the rides with Brian are gone.

I will be entering back into the States today. So long Brian, thanks for everything. Have fun in all that mud from the hurricane. I'm sure those puddles are big now.

Wel.........i kicked Dave`s ass to the curb today......time to cut the cord i said

My wife almost cried seeing him leave........i lost a good trail buddy...no more 10-3am night ridin buddy for me.....which really SUCKS

I really enjoyed the company and ride partner..out on a trail at 2 in the morning is better than sex..... ........

So....i bought Dave a BBQ so he could cook some burgers on the road.......i spared on expense either.........




Here it is mounted on the bike ready to smoke off a coulpe of burgers..





Well he didn`t want it........and i`m out 50 cents.......pretty ungratefull kid i thought.....i`ll remember that boy




And off he goes....promised to stay upright this time........

I`M HOLDIN YOU TOO THAT Dave........




Good luck.....prayers with you......Nice too meet you.......things really worked out good with me being able to finally get some riding in with ya too

Stop by anytime.........Sarah is waiting for Cops to come on....bad boys bad boys,what ya gonna do ...

Ha ha thanks Brian. I will return someday, I still have to make it to Cartwright.

I made it to Ronni's place here in Portland Maine. All in one day too, something like 400+ish miles. It was a good ride full of aches and annoying back muscles.
