    My coworker looks at his Duc like a supermodel. Nice to look at, fun to ride, and a pain in the ass to deal with everyday.

    Those mivv exhausts are pricey. I looked at the one for the grom and was near $500 for basicly a slip on.

    rain starts tonight and I need to store a ton of stuff in the shed.
    the Sporty is due for maintenance, not fun to work on it in the shed.

    Yeah, I've heard the rain is coming to CA. Hope it's not so much that it causes flooding the wildfire areas.

    Our first Pacific storm is due in Thursday, they are using the term ''significant'' for rainfall.
    Here that would mean 2-3 inches, elsewhere an inch or less.
    rain on a fresh burn scar, yeehaw!

    I used to have a 1986 XR-600R. Damn fine bike. Bought it new back in the day. When I ended up selling it, I got as much for it then as when I bought it.

    One heck of a stump puller, and yet it could still do 100 mph. :rock2:
