Hotels are comparatively expensive, but a decent solution.

I won't be able to say about that ride in November until we're a bit closer.

definitely worth the expense on these big overnight off pavement rides after 250 miles. i think that room i got for this is $53 final cost.

Hope you can make it, seems like a lot of folks are.

Re: Black Friday Getaway Ride

Well guys, I figure this is a good a place to post it as any. I'm fine riding for the year. DR is totaled. I'll mend. Looking at going lighter for my next bike. 99% sure it'll be a Beta 500RR-S. Looking forward to breaking it in with y'all next year!

What happened? Hope you're OK! On the new bike, I highly recommend a KTM 500 EXC-F dual sport! I have a 2018 & it is hands down the best bike I have ever owned & parts are much easier to find than Beta parts.

Re: Black Friday Getaway Ride

Thanks guys. I'm healing fine. Reinjured my foot, broke a shoulder blade, bruised a knee, and broke a tooth. Oral surgery next Monday for the broken tooth and my wisdom teeth. I'll be really down for a few days after that. Long term everything is looking really good though. Pain is manageable, should get better as the bruises heal. No surgeries to fix bones, it's all going to heal fine.

I really appreciate the well wishes and I can't wait to get back out riding with you guys!

Re: Black Friday Getaway Ride

If I can get my garage back together so I can work on my bikes, and then get the work done that needs to be done, maybe

I need to replace wheel and steering head bearings on the 530. I also need to figure out why the valve cover gasket was leaking oil pretty bad the last time I started the bike.

If I can't get the 530 up and running in time, I might take the GS. If I take a kid with me my chances of being able to get out for a ride go up considerably

The number one rule for this forum!
Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Eph 4:29 (NIV)
Think before you post. Leave out the vulgarity, personal attacks and foul language!

Quote:
"However lofty the goals, if the means be depraved, the result must reflect that depravity." - Leonard E. Read

Lies are fragile. They require constant attentiveness to keep them alive. The exposure of a single truth can rip through an ocean of lies, evaporating it instantly. - Brandon Smith

If you want government to intervene domestically, you’re a liberal. If you want government to intervene overseas, you’re a conservative. If you want government to intervene everywhere, you’re a moderate. If you don’t want government to intervene anywhere, you’re an extremist. — Joe Sobran

It is no crime to be ignorant of economics, which is, after all, a specialized discipline and one that most people consider to be a ‘dismal science.' But it is totally irresponsible to have a loud and vociferous opinion on economic subjects while remaining in this state of ignorance. – Murray N. Rothbard

When one possessed of the Truth suffers from a heavy heart he is susceptible to a more dangerous affliction — the craving for power to eradicate error, to cause Truth to triumph by force. - Frank Chodorov

Where politicians flourish, long history has harshly taught us, people and their liberty wither. Where the state is god and the "public interest" worshipped, individual man will be found bleeding upon the altar. - Karl Hess

The accepted wisdom is that without the state, society would collapse into lawlessness and crime. In fact, lawlessness and crime define the very nature of the state and the society organized by it. - Bionic Mosquito

But the myth of the rule of law does more than render the people submissive to state authority; it also turns them into the state's accomplices in the exercise of its power. For people who would ordinarily consider it a great evil to deprive individuals of their rights or oppress politically powerless minority groups will respond with patriotic fervor when these same actions are described as upholding the rule of law. - John Hasnas

Good to hear! It's hard to find anything negative about them.

Sorry to hear this but glad your injuries not so serious and you're healing. What happened? Street accident?

Yep. I went out chasing sport bikes on the DR instead of riding alone. Won't make that mistake again. Didn't make a corner on 3090 because I was watching the guy in front and not my speedo. Bike hit a tree, I didn't. Frame is bent. RIP DR.

Re: Black Friday Getaway Ride

Got a good deal on a replacement. The Beta was going to be too expensive. I'll get it set up and we'll get a ride going when I'm healed up!
