Ridden there several times. Very nice, well-groomed trails. About got killed by racer quads once or twice. I'm not sure if they still ride those in there or not.

Guess that burnout and wheelie down Market Street wasn't such a good idea. Sure looked good though........

That wasn't me, that was RudeDude


I was heading home last night around 1 am, got on 24 W from 27. My rear locked up again ! () Then my engine shut completely off

I rolled to the side after fighting it (thankfully not falling)

Driftdragon was still James' place, but since inspection proved the chain was still on there, I started it back up and kept the bike on the shoulder, riding at 30mph.


Ugh......

~ Hey Shane!

Too true! I'm glad I didn't go down. You know I had just talked to Mac about the TAT trip Wednesday and was committed to going.

Then this I may be jumping the gun tho, maybe it could be just the Carb needs to be re-done.

I'm keeping a better eye out for 200's, to see if I can grab one cheap and switch my stuff over to another one or engine swap.

You still heading to Memphis as well Shane? Or haven't given it much thought?

Wow! That sounds like an old two stroke seizing. Glad you managed to get it off the road.

Hey folks,
I've got a pair of black Frogg Togg rain pants, size M, that are a smidge too small for me. Not worth packing and returning, so they're free to whoever local wants em, or buy Squirrely a bottle of suds. The inseam is probably 32, waist adj from 30ish-36.

I may go pound some pavement tomorrow afternoon for a few hours if anybody's interested. PM for details.

Wicked Cohutta

Had a great high speed run to Conasauga Lake this morning with the Payle Rider. Got some big air a few times like we used to. Passed one Ranger who actually waved and a jeep. Had the woods to ourselves after that. No dust and good traction. Great way to spend the morning. It was our usual spur of the moment ride so no time to throw out an invite. We're selfish that way.

I have, still haven't got the 450 runnin' though. (needs valves) An I'm thinkin' the 1150 might not be the ideal mount for the TAT. At least with me on it. Let me know what happens on your end.
