Looks like you’re in the Sonoran desert. Flowers are poppin! I was there last week and took a hike in the pouring rain. Pretty cool.
At the beginning of last week Phoenix got more rain since 1/1/20 than we did in all of 2019.

...... and my all time favor Central Oregon Desert machine.


I'm a little passionate about my off-road bikes.
A friend has a 690 and an 1190 and dearly loves them both, that’s a fine bike you got there.

The Wuhan Corona virus just hit Nashville, already 615 cases confirmed today, a 22% increase since yesterday. The article I posted is 2 days old.
2,000,000 people live there and 600 got sick.........................................gosh practically wiped out Nashville in the blink of an eye. If only the twenty-nine hospitals and several hundred doctors in the area could manage.

Shut up.

It is quite clear you do not understand much of anything about medicine or disease.
And especially about statistics related to such.

Is it as bad as the media portrays? Probably not. Is it bad for the high risk populations? Darn right and in a city can overwhelm resources easily. And depending, no matter the number of other hospitals, some are just destined to be busier and get a higher volume of traffic.

Those beds likely will be filled by end of week.

This is the joy of living in this amazing republic. The best healthcare on the planet with millions of people working their butts off to make sure they and their respective facilities are prepared to take care of the sick.

Lots and lots of OT, risk, and absolute dedication to taking care of the sick.

It was a great bike, I replaced it with a 2011 300XC. Dan who founded Inline Fabrication (reloading accessories) bought the 450XCF and still has it. (y)

My longtime racing/riding buddy was the US Maico importer and then one of the early KTM dealers. I attended the annual KTM Dealer meetings from 2005-2011 and was the test rider at special KTM Street Bike releases. I've been very fortunate when it comes to motorcycling experiences in my life.

Of all the bikes I've had, this is only one I have now.

We had a few warm dry days and took the kids to the farm. (13 and 11) CRF 110 and 125...kids discovered going up hill they could catch a little air. You would have thought they landed on the moon. Its all they talked about for days. Making memories...it goes by fast. Looking forward to some trail riding this year.

When you first start getting air it feels like your up really high and flying for ever .
But a few good photos and you realize you may have been a foot or two and were in the air for 6 feet .
But the feeling never goes away and you can't wait to do it again !

Sad thing is you will never feel as fast as that 1st day on a motorcycle .
Because from that point on your always chasing more speed and bigger air .
You will never be as fast as you want to be , Nor will you ever jump as high and as far as you want to .
But for some its a life long desire that never fades .
Yea I miss riding !

LOL aint that the truth! My kids thought they were 6' up. My son is full speed and my daughter is more cautious but I was amazed that once she 'felt air' she was riding faster and with more confidence than ever before. It makes Mom nervous...I tell her to go inside, we don't need parental supervision.
