Day and time?

Carrying your bicycle on the motorcycle to do both kinds of riding?

Last week there was a guy that was carrying a mountain bike with the wheels off on his motard in Wisconsin. I was thinking, that dude is hardcore

I'll pm you my cell.
Probably sat and sun late morning but can do other times.

Just got my drop seat post

and a new set of Thin grippy pedals
I rode a bike with a set of these last week and it felt like they were glued to my feet.




I can't wait to try this stuff out.
Yes the race is called "Do the Rock" and is usually in the fall. We ride part of last years course.

Yeah, I've seen a Valkyrie with a bike strapped sideways to the backrest.

The trails were in awesome shape at RockCut this weekend!
Monday Andrew came by and rode my spare bike, we did some light riding then we went out later for some bumpier riding.
I think I murdered my legs

That free track day was awesome. I love the torque on that Triumph, I'm so happy I didn't wrinkle it up on the track.


I'm considering Palos for Friday if I can move my quads by then
