  1. Oh, and almost got killed today. The closest I have ever come, even closer than the car that spun out in front of me during rush hour in St. Louis. Running pretty hot on 212, so very twistie, but not running super hot as I am 2up with a boatload of luggage. Very blind hard right hander, I am left side of my lane trail braking into the corner and start to lean and bam...there is the front end of a fucking 18 wheeler right there....and yea, he had a full trailer in my f'ing lane. There is no shoulder. Throttle off, ease on more brake and dive to the white line...that's all the room I can give him. A few more inches to the right and I am going to wreck. Debbie tells me there was only 2 or 3 inches between my mirror and the side of the trailer. And yes, trucks are prohibited on that road. I U turned got the plate and called him into the State LEO's on 911. Fuck that guy.

  2. No, my opinion hasn't changed. I still think there are only three kinds motorcyclists. Those that have a a Goldwing. Those that want a Goldwing. Those that do not yet realize they want a Goldwing.

  10. Most likely going to replace it with a 17-18 Kawasaki Versys 1000lt or repurpose my V-Strom to a more street tour and pick up a Honda CFR300Rally to keep my dirty riding needs met.

  13. Drained the final drive, greased the splines, and put it all back together. Not too bad for a bike with over 50k miles.

  14. TTR125 is a great choice for a bike to grow into. Even old fat guy capable, at least in my experience. As for the n+1 theory, I still see some unused floor space available. You're not done yet!

  15. My guess is it's more about the tires than the wheels.

  16. I wouldn't mind one as a 4th or 5th bike, and I know I would go customizing on it. It's screaming for wire wheels. That all said as a ride to put miles on, no thanks.....

  17. Wow, You brought back memories of the good old days for me. Yes, the Moped Gangs in Germany. There license system would only restrict 15YO's to under 50cc's and at 16YO to 125cc's. So they were all over the place. I was 24 YO on my second tour over there and had a Yamaha XS1100 cafed out and this gave me great respect with the Moped Gangs. The 80's I was stationed in Bad Kreuznach-8th. ID. Thanks for the memories.

  19. Another great day. 441 out of Cherokee to just before Gatlinburg. Then the river road over to Townsend. Foothills, Dragon then down 28 to Franklin. 28 north of Franklin is very new, caught zero traffic...it was a blast. Plan was to go back up to Cherahola but we ran out of time. Took 64 all the way into TN. Great road, not a twistie mountain road but a very senic haul ass sweeper kind of road. The TN side is beautiful, and looking at the map there is some serious riding over there. Like 30. Tonight in Athens TN. Tomorrow over to Rocky Top the fun way.
