:shock: :shock: Is that the new Tiger 1200 I saw at Rod's the other day while picking up Slodave's used Tiger 800??
:shock: :shock: :shock: Is that Rick Rick's new, "To the Dark Side with Slodave" bike??? :lol:

Slodave would say, "Nice"! :thumbup:

I'm so confused...

If it's not yours, why you posting a pic of it?

Looks like a KTM 1190 Adventure, can't tell if it is an "R" or not.

And Dustpan, what are you doing picking up SloDave's Tiger 800?!?

There was no place to stop on either side of the hwy at .4 so I opted for the .8 instead. (safety first)

My plan was to get all 4s. But sometimes the road just doesn't cooperate the way you would hope. You gotta be flexible!

Pretty soon you can turn around and sell it as a 2003 with only 10 miles on it! 10 REALLY hard miles...

Crap. When I took this in Siletz, I thought I was being clever. Then I discovered another phone booth photo of a "44." However, my pic has two working payphones. I'm amazed that Siletz would have a situation where two folks need to use a payphone at the same time. Anyway...

Haha. Even if you got it to work, I still would have recognized the connection between the phone booths and Siletz.

So you like that Zero you test rode?

Absolutely liking the Zero. Handles well, and is very easy to get the hang of. Give it 400 to 500 miles per charge, and it will be a new world of riding. Hopefully they'll get the range up, and get the price down.

Let the Enfield stretch it's legs today.. Hard to park at mile 44 past Oakridge on the way to willamette pass. Lots of big trucks going by too.. Maybe not the safest thing to do but I've been thinking about it for months, and finally had the time to do it and remembered to do it at the same time. On the way back I was about a quarter mile from the end of the oakridge 35 mph zone when this guy in a red truck blows by me doing about 60.. So I gave it the gas, and darned if the old girl could catch up to this guy. He must have seen me in his rear view mirror, because he took off like a rocket, I estimate 100 mph or more, and I couldn't touch him all the way down the hill--until I rode by the weigh station and... There he was with John Law on the side of the road waving his arms while talking to the guy. How satisfying is that? anyway heres the pic:
