Bikes are: 2 05 ZX6R Track bikes, 1 05 ZX6R Street bike, 05 Buell XB9R Firebolt, KTM 450 Super Moto, 01 Sherpa 290 Trials, 94 CR 250, and my daughter's 03 PW 50 (she is 5).
Not much for riding long distances (this old body has issues with the sport bike crouch for more than 3 hours!
) although I go as far as California for track riding (wish I still lived there just for the roads!). I have tangled wit the Dragon at Deal's Gap and the other hot spots in Tennesee and Western NC (that's what the trailer is for *hehe*). Some of the most beautiful roads and scenery you can find!
And luckily I got rid of the snowmobiles last year so the coal season and the bike season mesh perfectly (that was a nice observatiuon you made in your other post). I think maybe I have too many hobbies, and finding this whole community of wonderful coal burning "I can do it myself" types fits right in with my tendency to go bonkers over something new.
I live in NE PA, a little coal mining town named Carbondale (go figure...
). It is a perfect launching place for some beautiful rides through the countryside.
We should get a "coalburners" ride together for sometime this summer. Anyone game?
