you know that blue-n-yellow cousin is closer than you think, it's more like a twin brother now.

'lil, I'm serious about the bike, you can borrow it anytime, it's quite a bit taller now is a dirt wheels on it so being vertically challenged I don't ride it as often as I used to

Lol at least she poses for you after a wipeout! My wife dragged kicking me to family stuff today but had her take her car with the kid and I took the bike and all the dirt roads. I love living in the sticks. You gotta let me know you guys are going for a ride I'm just south of you. Gotta take it easy though I have no skid.

You are welcome to the KLR650 unless it sells before then.

You can borrow mine. I won't be needing it. One condition, you have to wear the GoPro the whole time.

Oh, and don't worry about molesting it, it's quite desensitized.

Probably unlikely Mrs Trip and I can make it, but if we did, I think we'd tow with the camper and take them up on the free camping.

Not technically a race, just a sanctioned event. Part of NETRA's Turkey Run series.
