Thanks for moving over, Rusty! I was surprised how many really nice cars were out on some of those roads. We passed a Fiat 500 Abarth on a road that I figured was only for Jeeps. It's tough, too,...

Just pulled the head off my KLR250 - both intake valves recessed into the head. Seats look fine, but the whole mess is filthy with carbon and gunk.

I'm guessing overheating caused the valves to...

I, as the lone sidecar jacka$$, thought the pace of the second group was fine. The Ural has no guts to go up the steep hills, and no brakes to slow it down on the other side, but this ride and last...

Ashley and I just got home about an hour ago. Thanks for putting together a great weekend, Fran!

Picture approval gladly given.

I'm hoping I've got something to ride by then. Ural is still twisted up and the KLR isn't behaving at all. Hell, I might just show up to drink beer.
