We will see about the long loop. I have yet to ride this bike further than 100 miles at a time. I dont know how well the seat on the XR and my backside will get along for that many miles. Of course it might not matter if I cant keep @gooddog off the motorcycle.

Clay,
Are you in for 2 more nights in Pinetop?

Freedom is the miles I'm rollin' on!

I think I can, I think I can, ... Although I may have to haul as* back down the hill at the end for appointments I cannot change.

I'm kinda worried that you might fall in love with sweet '12 model when I ride your new scoot. Sorry, Darby, it's not for sale.

Ohh I wouldnt be worried about that if I were you.

You should be worried about falling in love with the XR

You will be able to feel your wallet evaporate between 2nd and 3rd gear!

Thanks for the update Victor. It should be a nice size crowd.


The surgery went well, per the surgeon, the hand is still numb so I won't know more until later tonight or tomorrow. I had local anesthesia and was able to watch him cut on a video monitor. I was there for 2 hours most of which was prep. The actual surgery of the trigger thumb and carpal tunnel was about 15 minutes.

@Arizona Jim

I just rode the 92 loop yesterday (Montrose to Blue Mesa Res. Up 92 to Crawford, Hotchkiss, Delta and home) on the XR. I did ok but I think theres an issue with the seat, my lower back aches a good bit after a couple hundred miles on it. I dont know how well I will do on the long loop from Pine Top. I could always shorten it for myself, ride out 100 miles or so then turn around and ride back.

Either way, I'm still interested in extending this another couple nights to make the trip down there worth while.

Freedom is the miles I'm rollin' on!
