I saw that video. That guy is NUTS. How in the sweet mother of pearl did he loft that front wheel on that huge bike?

Mmmmm....

What a fab morning for a fun commute looking over some handlebars! Weather was cool, if not a bit brisk.

Filled up the new thumper, just cleared about 1000 miles since I bought it. Taking down about 73MPG on the commute. However noted, chasing village idiot #1 on hooligan bike via I-495 last weekend MPG dropped considerably!

Out and about still.

Dreaming of trips for next year (translated: Reading Cannonshot RR again ) You might give this a think:

Fits like a glove..



Now to figure out what to pack in it (besides spare tail light covers )

Nice to see you got the tool tube mounted!

So I went to Eagle Bay for some laps on the short track....weather was almost perfect! Did about a half dozen laps and just played around a bit, I kept the village idiot under control since I was running solo. Dave....I know you like the 606's because you get really good mileage out of them but considering I thought I was going to have to get off and push the DRZ out of a mud hole today, Trakmasters will be going back on when I finish wearing these out. The 606's just weren't digging like I thought they should. It sucks being on furlough and not getting paid but I sure am getting a lot of stuff done and having a bit of fun as well.
So when I finished up and dropped by Morton's to pick up some parts and what did I see sitting out front but an HP4 and a F800GS Adventure....both looking pretty sweet.
