Now I have to get an off road bike :silly:

Cool videos , way to raise the bar B)

It's going to be a real nice day around here tomorrow, I think I'll take the day off :dry:

The problem is I have a lot of fire wood that still needs splitting and stacking :pinch: and I'm running out of nice days.

Next weekend is supposed to be a bust. :(

used dual sport bikes can be found pretty cheap, but i think you will find the amount of fun you will have riding a motorcycle will increase 10 fold. small, light and don't have to worry about keeping it clean. you will find that you can explore places that you would never find on a big street bike.

i just sold a dr350 cuz i finally got off my butt and went thru the hassle of plating this beast..



ktm 300mxc! not the best choice for a dual sport bike, but is way light, great suspension/brakes. i can really root around some stuff now and not screw my back up if i gotta pick it up a time or two. and i love two strokes! :woohoo: most people would disagree with me on the choice of a two stroke.. but i believe most people are panty waiste nancy boys that gotta have the latest greatest four strokes with crack pipes to have fun... not me.

Nice Pics, thanks for adding them.
It's cool to see that I'm not the only one with a bridge fetish :lol:

Well I had hoped to hit the plane wrecks this coming weekend but weather looks like it's going to be 50s and rainy :pinch:

Also my youngest son age 20 is competing in a Spartan challenge were they are going to crawl through mud and climb walls Ect... and I wouldn't miss that for the world :woohoo:

Anyways today was beautiful and I got most my work done by the time my wife got home so we went for a ride.

Local plane wrecks.

Awesome photos from everyone! I missed this thread the first time around.

The photo with you and the mrs. in the rear-view is classic.
