Yeah I passed you in my geezer car, and I saw that Harley blow by you as well. I may be asking for your supermoto rider card back. I think its time for you to go back to riding Ducatis on the street.

Last month my condo & 2 garages flooded I burned up 3 weeks of vacation time to try to deal with the aftermath. As you know, I'm only on line at work, so I've been out of the loop. Been too busy really to do any riding, hopping around more than a one legged man in an ass-kicking contest. I'll see youse guys one of these days.

They all sat in mucky, yucky water about up to my knees.

I took the Monster & 510 to MCC. Mad props to D2 . He jumped right on them & I got them back right away. The new Triumph went to Ken Hall's shop cuz he's doing MAJOR upgrades to the suspension & brakes. When he dumped the oil he said it wasn't that bad. I was really worried about the Green Flinger as I had it apart. The carb, tank & exhaust ended up in the water. I ended up selling it (in pieces) to a guy who buys bikes. I haven't heard back from him if he got it running yet. Soon as I got rid of it, I replaced it with an '09. I've got about 100 miles on it now & I'm happy with it. It's got a bunch of improvements over the '06 model.
