Time and date are perfect for me - I'm in.

I'm the one on the east side with the sold sign.

Last I heard you can bring back 2 boxes with no questions asked, but you'll get a little briefing on the flight down about what you can bring back. Safe travels.

LOL if yours is anything like mine I agree the damn thing could wake the dead. Took like 20 attempts to get it running, ( The jets in it are not good for the winter) And on the center stand with the choke on it was walking backwards out the garage LOL

Not sure if it was just because it sat for a while or not, but I put the charger on the battery for like 10 hours and trickle charged it

Hey guys, long time since I checked in, work seems to get in the way!

I'm up for a local get together, Tec Roadhouse and date works.

I'm over just off West Belle River road, BR.

Just took the CBR1000RR out for a spin, needed to get a little charge on the battery and need 4.5k rpm to do so, or trickle charge it in the garage.. more fun to ride it.

Took the KTM out for the first ever ride..... OMG the vibrations compared to the CBR were insane. LOL OMG and the riding position and turning very differnet. THis will take some time to adjust to LOL.

Yeah I think it has Supertrap exhaust on it. I was like OMG it vibrates soooo much more then the CBR lol. Im heading to the states tomorrow afternoon, or id say pop over with it. I was seriously looking at the GS800F as an option before. I am the 2nd house form the corner on Puce and Monarch Meadows. You would see my VW Touareg in the drive if the wife hasnt stolen it for work LOL. I get the shoitbox red cavilier thats near dead, and the crap purpleoven van with no A/C LOL. Even though the VW is mine, somehow it seems when you buy 2 bikes in 1 year, there is some sort of fine print stating the wife gets the good car. /psshhh !

if the touareg is there though pop in ( after noon of course LOL ) I need sleep after a night at the fire hall downtown LOL.

Ièll swing by if Managment lets me take my balls out of her handbag for a few hours! Yes, im in the dog house, no idea why, but just gotta suck it up!

If anybosy else is interested every year i usually head into the US to either rent bike and do something stupid or trailor down. This year a fgew of my buddies in Atlanta are planning on attempting SOME of the Trans America Trail from Memphis west to as far as we make it. Ièm planning on trailoring down to Nashville and leaving my truck and trailor at a work buddies house, rifing weat to Memphis and meating up with the other idiots. I thhink the plan is June 19th to 26th. Obviously for us northerners we need to tack on 14hrs drive to Nashville either side (i did it in Oct last year, folloerf b y 3 hours to Atlanta, almmost killed me).

Having said that, its going to be a whole lot of fooking fun, anybody else interested in joining in, sharing gas, trailor blah blah......

None of us are gurus in off road, im like a duck in handcuffs so dont worry!!!!

Speak up and maybe we can discuss over a Hwy22 Timmys, Johny Shotz, Twiggs, Techumseh Roadhouse or my drive chat!!!!!

Ant yes......ièm a few beers into it tonight.....after all it is Friday....

hehe Im debating the WV adventure podcast run, may 12-13 and 14th if ya like. Dunno yet for sure, and trying to get the 29th off for the EOAR. I do plan on doing th TAT this year if time permits, if not hten maybe the TCAT or the Nortern Quebec to James bay run or something. Im up for anything really. Even Mexico (baja) a friend is running a course for DAKAR down that way in April, if I can scrape up some cash and Time off. Dunno, alot of aspirations this year, but im still a Dirt noob.

I get alot of time off even during the week, so anyone bored, hit me up, I will ride dirt or street, and dont mind Long hauls. I love long drives/rides. I blame all those years in the army SSF for that!
