Where did you guys end up riding on Saturday?

Squirrel - I may try Franklin if you go... but don't want to try anything too tough on my new bike yet. Its a million feet tall!

Sweet! Quite an upgrade for the ole DR.

Laugh Report on my new bike

Oh my gosh!! the ktm 350 is completely different from my DR650! I need to learn how to ride all over again! Full throttle on the DR won't work on this orange beast - I could hardly keep the front tire down. A blast!! I am just bummed Prentice Cooper is closing this week.

May spend the day this Friday at Houston Valley - if anyone wants to come along just let me know.

So, did Danny run any oncoming bikes off the road, make any bad passes in blind corners, outrun the cops, attempt to turn himself into a hood ornament, etc. like he usually does? Or were y'all too slow to witness his "riding style" up close?

Ha! I ride wayyyyy to slow to have found that out Monte. Tim was keeping up with him pretty good on his GS tho. Maybe he saw some action

It was a good day to get a ride in, altho like Doulos, I'm sure gonna miss hitting Prentice Cooper. I think a bunch of people are randomly gonna be up there before Thursday.

They can't close Haley Branch from the Whitwell side can they?

There definitely is a gate there.

Monte I am glad you asked about that luna... umm... gentleman. I was thinking that if he always rides like that and never gets into trouble then I been holding back too much!

After a bit I just decided hell no he is just lucky as hell today.

lmao!

It has been said the good Lord looks out for fools and drunks. I don't think I've ever seen Danny drink anything stronger than soda.

He started sweating profusely when I told him I forgot my tools and spare tube...

until I pulled out the required items from my back pack.
How many sticks does it take to hold up a KLR?
