Chris started and Bryan lead. The ride and seeing you all were so nice on such a great day!

Dave, Roger, Chris, Shaun, Bryan, Steve and myself got together at Texaco on 149 & 105.

We took SHNF fire road from east side to west side, took back road toward Outlaw Trax, then went into Bryan special, which I had no idea where we were, but great as always.

As we had only 4 to 5 hours to ride, we skipped lunch and rode as much as possible. Finally took official potty break.

KLR has one of the largest gas tank, but Chris's has even bigger one.

Roger's new DRZ. Looks fast & light.

I put wind shield and 16T front sprocket. This was the first test on DS ride. Those worked fairly good and improve gas mileage for 10%.

Of course we took the jeep rd. Only "a little bit" muddy.

Steve's new XR with street biased DS tire. Sliding rear while going through the mud, but looking so easy with him.

I am no longer wanting to trade/sell the KLR. It will NOT have the mermites and anything else not needed next gravel/dirt ride. It's a pig enough as is.

We need to work our way over to the Brenham/ Chappel Hill area next time. I love that area with the rolling hills, I should have more time to ride next time.

Yogi, might as well order up that orange bike soon so we can ride up north.

I am hoping to have plans this coming weekend, but the next I may be free. Few days notice is always a good thing

sfeakes rode a 06 525 and WOW it ripped! Followed it all day. He also has the motard rims. GET IT!

KLR for commuting trips and something like that for what we did Saturday, I'd be in HEAVEN. Oh and I almost took out my tib/fib with those mermites on. :lol:

I don't think I will be able to get free for any riding this weekend. I am going looking for a new truck.

Did your Wifey sell your truck in the garage sale?

BTW, good riding with you guys Saturday.

Not a done deal yet, they came and test drove it and they are trying to get their finances together still. Hopefully in the next couple of day's.
So did you get the wee strom?
