Welcome to the asylum. There are a couple of inmates that were working on a meet and greet soon, maybe in the Guthrie area. Don't know what became of that?

I'll play in the dirt xD, I might have a hard time keeping up for now though. Can anyone suggest a few trails around the area?

yeahyeahyeah...

Soso sawdee Woodsrider. I've been..well, out riding. Either dirt or dual sport. I'll get into town and find a cool place for us all to hook up.

Seems like the main ingredients are: Beer, food, and Beer. Not necessarily in that order? I'll find a good spot and post up. But after the holiday for sure.

Hey Mental and others...

What about getting together at Penny Hill Deli & Subs in Norman Tuesday the 3rd round 6:30 or 7?

We can head up to Guthrie later in September or October...

Beer, Locally owned, high ratings on Urban Spoon, in Norman to welcome the newcomer, and sometimes we just have to make a decision.

We should get together and plan some rides... I'm fixing to leave for Colorado but will ready to go when i get back!!!!!!!

Just a thought

if say your Odyssey reads resting 12.8v .. then do a load test by starting your motorcycle.

if Odyssey passes both tests .. odds are your AGM is fine ..
Hi Cy, well I had the charger on the battery for a couple more days doing some conditioning, and for the last three days it has been sitting at 12.9 after resting overnight. I will put it in tonight and crank the bike several times, I'm feeling pretty comfy about it. Couldn't get the Odyssey to fit in the abs void, so will just live with it for now.

Google shows me two locations for Penny Hill Deli and Subs? One on Lindsey, one just off Main.

We want the one on Lindsey most likely, their site shows the other location is closed due to damage and aiming to reopen on the 4th.

holding 12.9v (100% charge) for three days, then if battery starts your bike. that will do nicely for load test. sure sounds like your Odyssey has made a recovery.

I'll try to make it, though I have to admit I liked the idea of North better than South.
I may wind up driving. The Purple Goose is still in pieces after the Arctic Circle get-off but may be back together by then. If not, I don't think the shoulder is up to herding the Road King around yet so it will be cage time.
