Kudo's to Ram Mounts

At some point during the process of taking a sand nap and having a 400EXC driven up my ass, I discoved that my Ram Mount had a factory defect. Well, thanks to Ram Mounts lifetime warranty, a free replacement is on the way. So, I got that going for me.

Why don't we (all interested) ride over and check it out.
Ed's Seafood would be a nice touch too.
Hate to miss this, especially if there's TAT discussion, but I need to catch up on some things around the house.

I probably won't enter an ass kicking contest anytime soon, but I'll be fine.

Must be a 1%er ride.

14300 euros = $18813

Fook, the fee rides around here are a bargain.

Your Beemer would have been a hit over there. Sorry you can't make it.

Talked to Melvin about running the TAT next spring at the BMW Pensacola swap meet (picked up some killer deals on a Bomber jacket and jet boil thing) and this is gonna be fun.
Good chance we can time our end run in Arkansas to intercept Diann with the big trailer. Overflow riders could rent a car to gang-up for the ride home.
Would be nice,,,,but not a big deal if the trailer thing can't happen.
Our butts would probably be happier.

Its a long way off.
Plan/dream and let it be known for suggestion/tweeking.
Interested so far: Melvin, Brad, Bob, Dallas, Brett, Rick, me.

No mention of them giving up their luggage though.

Tony, I'd like to hear some details on the TAT ride, but it sounds like you're going to have a full house

NO NO NO! Come go with us!
We pair up and meet at the hotel each night for days re-plays and bullshit session.
Pick you out a riding pal and go with us at your pace.

No details/date yet but looking like late April thru May to avoid the rainy season.
Mini Trail said something about the best time to go a few years ago.
Gonna have to ask him again since he's done the old route and lives up that way.

Isnt that 75K and not 175K....

Sounds like clutch. If so. Is that a standard wet clutch like most bikes? Understand we are dirt bike guys are look at manual only as a last resort.... and sometime not even then...

Looks like a piece of cake to fix.



This fella fixed it in no time and took it for a spin in less than 6 minutes.
