Now the real question is how much play time do you have worked into your schedule to go out exploring? Found any other riders to go riding with?
Thanks Denis. Yeah, I figured why wait on hitting the Dakar pavement? Lucky for me a local expert driver was more than happy to help me out with that.

RaiderRed is ready to fire up his bike again and I'm hoping we can get out and about this weekend. One of our buddies is going to look at a couple bikes this weekend so he'll have one soon. One guy at work has a 1200GSA and another has a Kawi 250 with supermoto tires. And another guy has a woodland camo Ural on the way. So, we have a good little crew so far.

You got that right Scotty. It's sitting outside right now, inside my apartment courtyard, covered and locked with a big freaking chain! I also have a big freaking anchor for the chain and will be installing that as soon as I can borrow RaiderRed's hammer drill. You don't think the building owner will mind a few holes in the concrete and a big, red anchor do you?

I have every intention of getting out and about this weekend. Pics to follow.

Sweet Mother of Pear, Looks like the next few weeks are gonna be a blast!! Time to start planning a trip out of town. I'll bring the French/Wolof-English dictionary. Wanna visit some of my Peace Corps friends out in the bush?

That's awesome Todd; looking forward to the pics!

Damn this thread is a emotional rollercoaster and it has not even stretched its legs yet.
I can not wait for the riding and pictures. Have fun and be safe.

Yeah Steve, I could have done without the roller coaster. But it's here now and I'm a happy guy.

Thanks Lance. Looks like all those stickers on the tank are going to bite the dust. I think Garrett is going to send me a few SMIB stickers so I can keep representing. Time to find some alternate sticker locations because the tank is off gassing.

Denis hooked me up with two Cat Herders stickers but I want to put them someplace special around here so I may be begging for more soon. And I don't have any BWDR stickers except the one on my helmet and no DDB stickers at all.

We are heading back to Saly next weekend and it looks like we might take the bikes. The last time we were there we took a quad tour and RaiderRed marked some great points with his GPS. So, our plan is to hit those trails again and I'll try to get some good pics off the beaten path.

Of course, the first thing that came to my mind was unshaven Peace Corps gals. Apparently the clown and I are on the same wave length.

If you want some more, PM me with an address and a count and we'll get you squared away.

Hey Denis. Thanks man. I'll ping you when I've placed the two I have. I'll be looking for a cool place to take a good pic. I'll eventually plaster this place with cool stickers!
