Thank you for narrowing it down. I’d hate for you to come right out and reveal your choice. That’d be crazy. Can you tell us what tires you’re not running? Good to have you back in the mood. :stickpoke:

I honestly don't remember...so I tried to point you towards the answer. It's the same kind as Griff's. My druthers would have been MC Enterprises like what I had before...but that's not manufactured anymore.

Left out Thursday morning to visit friends up by Washington, DC. Had lunch with Ken the HD Guy on the way then found the torrential rains that have been flooding northern Virginie. But I made it! Chilling, seeing some sights today. Capt Morgan can a-visiting last night.

And I couldn’t. Thank goodness they’re backordered. I did submit my email for notification of re-stock.

Rode mine a couple hundred miles.
It was hot but actually a nice day.
When TS or Hurricanes miss you they tend to drag the moisture away.
No thunderstorms and less humid.
It did get to 93.

Well, I rode it. In the mountains. Jwilly may have been involved, along with a friend of his. Someone got bear shit in their radiator, directly from the bear. That someone is okay, but their bike doesn’t have exactly as many parts as it used to. That grizzled hero limped back to the house. Jason and I continued on to TWOS and parts unknown.

Then I came home and loaded the bike up for a trip to Louisiana tomorrow.

I did Wawa from Ottawa a few weeks ago. Where are you headed? (That was the middle leg of a three day ride from NB to Winnipeg for me.)

Good ride today with Bill Lumberg. As he mentioned the ride didn't start off good for my buddy Steve. He hit a Bear Cub about 15 mins into our ride in North GA. Busted the front fender off his Versys and end up going down. His Olympia gear did it's job and he was fine although i'm sure he will be sore for a few days.

Vancouver... I'll ride to at least Penticton where I "might" park the bike and drive or fly to Vancouver.
It'll all depend on family plans/happenings once I get to BC.

Did my normal Sunday ride on a couple of coastal roads. Then changed the rear end fluid.
