Re: Norway ...

My bike really doesn't ride well going over water. And the Atlantic ocean is a really big ocean.

Yep we are getting dirty this weekend. A little change of pace.

I will do a recon tommorow since its 10 mins from my house and let everyone know the conditions, if we dont get any more rain we should be cool, with this hot breeze out here in MChenry county any water should dry up real good. He starts riding around 9am. What time you guys thinking about going?

Oh well know the difference, DRZs RUN and never Break! Euro Bikes - All you have to do is look at some of the finer euro Engineering marvels like the YUGO, Peugot, VW bug, Etc... Thats why i stick to jap bikes.

Joe, You have no idea. To compare your non starting Euro bike story to bills is like comparing a 1 day trip to the county jail or in Bills case a 10 yr sentence in Pontiac state Penn as a 110lb feminine White boy who takes it in the can - Everyday!
