It's been two FOREVERS!
« on: March 08, 2020, 07:16:27 PM »
Last time anyone around here saw me, I was on a KTM 950 Adventure. Sold it 13 months ago, and haven't had a running motorbike since then till now.
Bought my best brother-in-law's 2008 Honda ST1300, and rode it home a week ago today.
It's just exactly like the KTM! And I mean, EXACTLY. Same sound, same looks, same weight, same... nah.
It ain't nuthin' like the nine-fiddy,
But it IS a motorcycle, and a comfy one at that. AND!! I can finally put both feet flat on the ground again... at the same time, even.
I'm Mark Medlin, still live in Hoover, still take on too much, still too busy, still working... but dangit, I can ride again.
So there's that.
Tell us where y'all meet sometime, and I'll really, really try to come see someone.
I'm in class Monday, Tuesday and Thursday till 9:30, leaving basically a little time on Wednesday and Friday evenings and maybe steal some time from a weekend.
How y'all been?

I'll try to keep up with riding events, particularly any Gymkhanas in the near future.
About 200 more pounds of motorcycle, so I'm still growing accustomed to tight turns. Smaller front wheel, too, than the KTM 21"-er. But it's a whole lot lower, so I just have to adjust.
If you see me riding this thing in the dirt, please stop and help.
I've obviously screwed up somewhere! 
??? :D
