Fite joins a "singles" group.

So..... the General and I are chatting last week and the conversation does a one-eighty. Still not sure how the Easter dinner menu details suddenly mutated into a comment about old Fite's waist size. Bottom line.... the lady with whom I share a house thinks that maybe I need to start paying a bit more attention to what I eat. Maybe start an exercise regiment, take better care of myself, bla bla bla, shed a few pounds.

So I bought myself an exercise bike!

2012 XR650L
1800 miles
Acerbis 5.8 tank
Rear rack plus sub-frame support
Bark Busters
Bash plate
Headlight protection
Windshield (may not stay mounted)

I'm pretty stoked!
Have been looking for something that can get me in a little deeper
woods-wise than BiggerBird and not bust the bank.

Farkles will include:
milk crate
hip boots
shovel
4H stickie

Can't wait for the snow to go away so I can start exercising!
Fite

Send that engine off to the Wizard this winter, The Cycle Wizard. If your oil temps get high, I used a GSMark oil cooler. That is his screen name on here.
