I ate there yesterday. There's a scoutmob for a free Banh Mi, if you're cheap like me.

Ate at Viet-Nomie's today. Really great food. Will go back.

Drove up as my beloved wanted to give it a try (she does not ride). Eric C. who has been the coffee "chef" at the Georgia Mountain Rally in recent years for the BMW Motorcycle Club of Georgia had ridden over for lunch on his R1200RT. So go to chat with him. Also spoke with Paul and his wife Nomie, who are part of the ownership team. Paul commutes on his BMW every day! Their food truck will be on the roads around Atlanta soon, and they plan for it to be at Georgia Mountain Rally at Hiawassee in May. Can't wait.

I've got new big valve heads, r100 pistons and a new fat exhaust(thanks Fred ) to throw in but I have 2 tests Monday so I couldn't do it this weekend. Next weekend I'll either be putting them on or, if I do that during the week, welding a new crossover. I'm thinking something like this:



Or this:



Like Spencer, I think a Y-pipe like this



would slow the flow so I'll be splitting the pipes and merging them into a single larger pipe.

I've got a Hyabusa muffler coming in....mainly because Jenna and Fred got ZX-10 mufflers and I gotta keep up with the Joneses

So if anybody wants to come over next weekend and play with wrenches and drink beer lemme know. Saturday or Sunday are all the same to me. Lemme know.

Hopefully after this I'll have a bike that RUNS and I can spend my few free seconds between classes riding the damn thing.

No prob.

I'd like to see how you are going to do this ... There is still a pound or three I can take off of my exhaust ... and that is just the place to do it ... and I do have an idea about it ...

Anyone riding this weekend?

I'm booked tomorrow but Sunday is looking good (assuming I get my friends carb rebuild finished Saturday.)

At the time it was stolen it did not have the boxes on. Its running a TKC on the front and Heidenua on the back. It had a couple of orange/yellow bungies on the back.

I would appreciate it if ADVers in Atlanta, Georgia, and the southeast could share the link around to their moto friends and PM me if you by chance you have any info.

Jenna - I bought a tick for Ala Shakes yesterday - missed them at Masquerade but will get to see her up in OH in a couple of months

Dang! We just had dinner with him a week ago. His bike was there too. He was planning on doing last weekends dual sport trip with us. That's some sad news.
Kyle, Spencer and I will keep an eye out!

Man that's gotta hurt. I wouldn't know whether to get pissed or cry.

I can promise you this much. I'll chase down every damn f800GS I see...after I get my bike running again
