I'm still alive:thumbsup: and I can confirm Sylvain is still alive since we had diner together last saturday:) Helllllo! I'MMMM back! It's been a while since I posted here, but let me say that I was busy for the last year. I got a lower back injury (broken tailbone) in the fall of 2005 and I kept busy restoring my old 78 bmw for the rest of the winter. My son and I rode my wr a few times last summer. I returned to road riding much to the liking of my loved one. In november I got a newer road bike, a 2003 ST1300 with 10,000 kms on it. I sold the 2 other old dirt bikes (1982 IT175 and a 1976 TY 250) to make room in my small garage. I still have my wr and I intend to resume riding the dirt in the spring. The garage isn't getting any bigger but it's cozy . Happy new year.
