    new bike road trip

    bought a ninja 650r yesterday. on a 4 day weekend trip to eureka springs and assorted locations.


    what a great bike. comfortable quick and nothings has dragged the ground yet.


    arkansas mountain roads should be a blast. most of the folks going are in later model VW's (scirrocos etc.) fortunately though, i'm not the only bike, a ducati is in the group too.


    if the hotel has wi-fi i'll post updates later.

    Cool. I want pics of the new whip.

    By the way, I meant to ask you Corey - do polaris atv's use 7/8ths bars? Got a deal on some alloy trailblazer 250 bars and want to know if they are going to work. Thanks.

    its a six speed speed w/ fairly close ratio. basically pick a speed less than 110 and you can lug it as you see fit.

    Sounds good Corey. Like the bike, even though its not really my thing modern sport bikes are growning on me, looks good and looks like a lot of fun, esp down hwy 23 and back up 71. That's a fun filled afternoon. Stop at Turner Bend for a sandwich and put your feet in the water.

    I need to talk parts with you as well. You got a couple things I'm lookin at mainly small stuff, lights, stays, grips, etc...but we'll see.
