My bike is still spending its winter vacation in my buddies garage. Got my service all booked for early march... so she'll stay inside and warm a bit longer.

Havn't ridden with any of the alberta dual spot guys, but i have 'stolen' and re-hidden the flash cache last summer. Mostly ride by myself and add my buddys on to that depending on the day.

I've been out but i also have to set the valves on my 640. i did the 450 late in the fall and changed the oil on the 640 while in California but the valves need 2 b set. I just received the tank for the LC4 640 but the other parts will be a couple of weeks. When they come in my bike will be out of service for a while.

I have a DR650, and a broken back. I'm in a brace for 3 months, hopefully will be able to do a bit of riding after I heal up.

macuser - you also might want to check out http://adsmc.ca for DS group rides from Calgary... McLean Creek, Ghost/Waiparous, Cypress, Nordegg, etc are some of the riding areas we head to. Most of the group seems to be on 400-650cc thumpers (I ride a Husky TE610).

The Big Red Pig,

I'm heading out Friday morning, spending the night and likely returning Saturday some time. I'm planning to head out again on Sunday in case anyone's interested.
