Mike... NFLD is a definite MUST if we're doing the TLH - makes for a great loop.

1.5 weeks should be enough time - no!?

Hey you freakin leg humpers, good to see the name Uber-Moto without the hate mail.

Haha, sold it before it granaded eh! Good choice, and if my opinion means anything the 450/something else combo is a weiner.

That's probably doable although 2 weeks would be better.

3 weeks if you're on a 450!

Maybe early August?
