Looks like the space shuttle is flying low.
LOL, thanks. I get that and Storm Trooper a lot.

When you own a 20 year old van, it tends to nickel and dime you to death. Prime example, the blower motor voltage regulator went out, and fried the plug.



Pulled the lift and covered the spot with more flooring. Added aluminum trim so it wouldn't look ghetto anymore. Next up I'm going to build boxes that cover the wheel wells and it will also be the base for the removable queen bed.

I had to look it up. Yea, its North of Asheville. I've ridden those roads before. They're pretty good. I see you're a supermoto guy?

I had supermoto's for 10 years. Here's a few of my old ones:

HMC built 505xc, with dual Ti Akra's:





My 2012 500 EXC (last one I had) Built by FBI:



I had a dozen of them lol. I gave them up for this:

No Regrets.
Nice bikes! Really want to ride the RSV4. Overall I've been pretty happy with my RSV.

Really looking forward to planning another trip to the Smoky's. Here's my RSV I believe at Newfound Gap. Pretty sure I have some Dragon photos somewhere.IMG_7025.JPG

I was into roadracing for a while and then got into supermoto. Started importing MVD Racewear from Holland. That's how I started my business. Then my buddy and I turned a small kart track into a supermoto track in Maine. www.boxshopspeedway.com We run a series with about 6 races a year. And I try and support some of the other regional and the AMA series. Supermoto is a ton of fun.

Hanging out in DC. Back home now. Time to start building a bed frame.

Not sure, but close to around 4k miles on current setup. Man, I can't wait to change the gearing! But she handles like a dream.

I've been building boxes for the bed support and storage. The tops will have cutouts with lids to access my junk. Then the 3 panel bed platform will go on top.

All those screws will be covered with aluminum trim once everything is painted.
