Well I be go to hell. Look at this Big Dawg, another new list for the Northside boys. This thread has been around for a while now.
Looking forward to riding with you all again real soon.
I'll probably wear a paper bag over my head so noone sees me riding with a bunch of windshielded bikes.:LaughAtYou

Hey Guys, I will not be able to meet tomorrow (Sunday). Wife wants to go to church, and seeing as I rode the Forest this morning, I'm in a weak position from which to bargain (not to mention the Daytona 675 that "fell into my lap"). Post the next ride a few days in advance, and I'll put it on the wife's calendar. Lol
See you guys soon. Have a good time. If the weather tomorrow is the same as today, you'll be quite pleased.

Charlie, who did you use and what rubber did you go back with? Thinking of using Polaris again.

Weather doesn't look bad for a Sunday run or at least a meet up.

Need to blow the cobwebs off of my bike.

Later and that's an impressive smiley.lol

Charlie, where is Iron Horse?? I got tires from Discount Motorcycle Tires right down the street from British USA. Nice people and good price. Just call a few days ahead to make sure there have went you want. I like the Avon's better then the Metz. Better mileage and better grip for me. I know some people like the Metz and thats fine. I got 3300 miles out of a new rear Metz, and that just sucks. Got 8800 out of the Avon. A lot of two up riding and a easy throttle cable. I 'm seeing that Bridgestone is making tires for the Rocket now also.

Hey Ken- I think Iron Horse is close to where you told me that Discount MC Tires is !2212 spencer Hwy. They Have a Good spin Balancer & the Old man is Very Good,they will Balance my wheel's and will let you watch them! & it rides Good now! Metzler $256.00 is that good ?Ashley B-USA Also That Honda Moly60 Grease for the spline StuBBs. I got 8000 out of the metz but it had a flat spot on the Bottom. I was Ready to try a Avon before I went with eight weights but it didn't come to that They took it to Iron Horse . And All is Well. I thought you were Darkside! Later Charlie
