    Hi Dirt Dog. I noticed in some of your signatures you were able to include pictures of the US, Canada & Mexico. I would like to do the same but need a hint on how to do it.
    Thanks
    Brian

    I won't be able to make it up due to an insane amount of work lately. We are in the middle of network upgrades, VoIP, and a merger. Last weekend was my first weekend at home in over a month.

    I did manage to get a ride in to Charlotte and Raleigh in a few weeks ago. I had to go up for business so I took the bike. Spent an hour or two on the BRP enroute from Charlotte to Raleigh. That's one beatiful road when you aren't stuck behind some slow poke. 1,600 miles of riding in three days. Loved it.

    I ordered some Photon Blasters (what a name) from Skene Design for the fronts. I remembered your hyperlights and thought they'd be a good addition to the rear.

    You make it over to Ohio?

    Hey Jon. How you been? I was wondering which hyperlight you installed?

    Hey Jon,

    I have a couple of questions for you...

    1) Do I remember correctly that you once had an FJR 1300? I think I remember you mentioning that once. If so, why did you get rid of it? Were there things about it that you didn't like? I'm thinking about getting one, so any input you have would be greatly appreciated.

    2) Would you mind sometime if I took your DL1000 for a little test ride? Another option I'm considering (instead of getting the FJR) is to upgrade from the DL650 to the DL1000.

    Thanks, and I hope all is well.

    Tim

    Have a good trip. When you get back ,get in touch. Also start putting penatrating oil on the front fender attaching bolts.They don't want to come lose and it is real easy to strip out the allen heads....don't ask how I know!
