Just curious if any of ya'll are doing the March Moto Madness down in Tellico Plains TN in late March. You can ride fire roads, 2 track, single track, or the dang Dragon if ya really want to. My friend Dan at gsmmotorent helps put this on, expecting 200 bikes, great free food, camping, and riding, its a WIDE range of bikes, many ages, many states, but we live the same dream. Email me for info, its on facebook as well, we cant wait!
For a hoot I started a you tube page titled Indiana Kentucky KLRS, I getting ready to post ALOT of DS rides from Indiana to Tn, the vids I have on there now are not my posse, but we will load some soon. Kinda new at this youtube, but I got alot of go pro footage! See ya, Barry
barry i'm in new albany. Bm3moose is in madison. Lots of central indiana riders in the indiana thread but i ride with louisville guys mostly. You all sound like a good group of guys.

I'm going to play with it for a couple months and when it warms up it will be for sale. To fund this:
74 CB450 bobber project I'm working on. It needs a little more work as it came in several boxes. Come on spring!

Great winter project John! Love those twin shocks.

March Moto Madness http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=845864 is an awesome rally. I went last year and had a great time. It falls the same weekend as Mark's "Roll to the Hole" ride this year

Ah yes! I really should look through the Central folder every now and then. Been spending too much time over on hondatwins.net drooling over the older hondas.

Hey dav_dman! I'm Barry's son, the solo WR250X rider in a group full of KLRs. I'm in the Greenville, IN area but work in Louisville. Dad's not too tech savvy when it comes to checking forums so feel free to PM or email me if you want to ride sometime. We're always ready to go.

will do Barry. Have you and Ryan both in my contacts now.

getting mri on my back tomorrow and consult with surgeon tuesday in indy. Hope to have surgery soon and be back riding hard within a couple of months. I can ride now, but not do other things i enjoy, like run with my dog. I'll be in touch before then to say hi but once the weather breaks and i'm healed up then i'm riding every day and would love an hour or two on the indiana backroads on a sat or sunday every week. The g/f has a ninja250 and likes the rides as well.

catch ya later,
Dave

Anybody heard anything good about the Acerbis fuel tanks? I read some reviews here and there. I found a discount through the military and figured I'd try one out. I figure it would help me keep up on some of the rides without having to stop every 10 miles for fuel.
