I thought the same thing when I first saw it. I think it's called artistic license. Ought to be a good show.

I know it's Derby weekend here in the Ville but I got an email about the Renfro Valley ride and it reminded me that I keep meaning to ride that. I keep forgetting only because OF Derby.
Anyway, also reminds me about the LBL dual sport ride in September. Think I may try to go this year and take the DRZ. Anybody else interested? Would have to be a long weekend and it's a long ride on that narrow seat but looks like FUN!

Tim I've done the Renfro before and it's a handful. Much fun but I was on my 650L and it was too big. The DRZ would be much better. Most of the riders were on glorified mx bikes which is just what the doctor ordered. Long days and sections can be muddy and very challenging. At least for a 60 year old, unskilled fat guy like me :)

Not tonight unless I get a chance to look at the taillight issue. Be lots of po-po around down there and I don't need that hassle :) It's been years since I went. Where exactly on 11th is it?

Somebody the other night mentioned a bonfire at RetroWrench tonight. James was trying to tell me where it was but I never got clear directions.

John

Retro wrench....
Take Oak to 7th street.
There is a stop and rob right on the corner of Oak and 7th.
Turn right onto the ally next to the gas station parking lot from 7th.
Roll up door on the left.

Umm there is always a local get together? Like downs after dark or whatever with more horsepower?

Retro is where John is dropping his other other other other bike off at to get worked on.

Not Ride Related, However....

I know that most of you hard-core types will be out riding today in spite of the Derby, but I'll be at home w/ a glass of Woodford in hand watching the race. Oh, and having this for dessert -



Trophy Wife's world-famous (OK, neighborhood-famous) pecan pie w/ chopped-up dark chocolate mixed into the filling. Eat your hearts out.

I got the tail light figured out. A bullet connector under the seat had gotten loose. I squeezed it a little and reconnected. All good. Also got steering head bearings in the 450 and getting ready to redo wipers and seals in the forks. It's nice to finally have a day off with nothing to do.

I've seen a couple guys from Cincinnati called the Caveman Riders do this on KLR's but I wouldn't recommend it. Besides if you aren't sending this from your cycle you've missed it.

Check this video from 2012. Not KLR territory especially around the 6:30 mark. I got tired just from watching it

Anthony and I are in Romney, WV this long weekend. A local dealership, Romney Cycles sponsors a camp & ride (2nd year) and it's been fantastic.

Free camping, hot showers, campfires, fed us tonight, WV roads both paved and dirt. We rode 430 miles Thursday, 300 Friday, went on a great group ride today and a long one back tomorrow.

Keep this one one your radar for next year guys.
