Just out for a quick test run (and I mean quick) on my new-to-me Blackbird. It is soon to be setup as an ultimate sport-touring hyper missle. My bike obsession has gotten the better of me. Does anyone want to buy a DR650? Anyone? It will be for sale ASAP on websites near you.

And since I just threatened my Mom with sending some grubby biker dudes to her doorstep, I'll use a file tag from last weekend...

The Rich Acres Christian Church sign is the tag.






These taken from her driveway. Please no burnouts! It would be ironic if AmE got this tag as she is not grubby or a dude.

Tell Mom that Rick said Hi!

Man that's a lot of miles. Last month I flew into Providence, RI and picked up my Terra in MA. Road all the way from MA to Canada on the Puppy dog trail which was 360 miles of dirt road, down through VT, over into Maine, and then back down to NC following part of the TET. A little over 2100 miles in 7 days with the longest being about 450 and about 700-800 miles on dirt.

I need to quit being lazy and post a rr from my trip down under earlier this yr. I always get antsy when I hear about others trips. Probably doesn't help that I'm watching Long Way Round on Netflix either! lol. I may need to hit you up for some advice as well Parker as I'm planning a NE ride next year.

Damn Toast, you are on a bike buying spree I've heard the blackbird is a sweet ST ride. Looks great!

Hey now, I can do a pretty good impression of grubby after a few days of moto-camping. Probably won't be able to get the tag first, but if I do, I'll throw in a few extra loud revs just to keep the dirty biker scum reputation intact :)

I heard this one more than one occasion back when the Blackbird was new; "Congrats on getting a Blackbird, sorry about your driver's license"

Those have to be the smoothest engines produced by Honda. I rode a friend's 2000 Blackbird from Wilmington to Raleigh on I-40 and over 10 years later it still puts a grin on my face thinking about that bike.

How much for the DR?

I am planning to leave Sunday 5am and be in Niagara Falls, Canada for the first night. That's @700 miles.

It calms down to 350-400 mile days after that.

I try to have at least one "Epic" ride every year and I have plenty of time to sightsee if I hold my mileage to 400 daily. I don't sleep much......

LOL, I actually could have went for this one all day today but was holding out then the wife said she was going to Greensboro so I thought I might as well head to rich mans land and grab that one. It felt kind of weird pulling up in someones driveway to get a picture.

alright parker, it's all your fault I've had to kill some time today. But throwing up a pic of your trip, and just hearing the talk reminded me what I slacker I was for not putting up a RR from earlier this year. I will post more up later, but I started my RR from this past Feb here if any of you'ns are interested...
