Unless you get to kickass and take names and drive fast like johnson357. Thats pretty rad too. You also get to bitch about your shoulder.

I am a lurker - great stuff - keep it up. I need to catch up for one of the rides - just work too much.
I need to get race-tech gold valves installed in my KDX 220 - anyone know of a shop or someone in the area that can do that for me? Any guidance would be appreciated.

Contact Reuben Frankenfeld with 35 motor sports. He just did my fork seals in my Husky forks. Great guy and good prices.

He has a shop at his house not far from Moorseville. He is an instructor for the Kevin Schwanz school.

I didn't know that is where Reuben had ended up. Lost touch with him. I second that Reuben is a top notch guy and mechanic.

That 35 motorsports shop looks fantastic! Great prices on tire changes! $15 includes balance. I need to get their suspension sag set up service. $30 great!

Reuben is a great friend and a super mechanic. Anyone would be well served to have him work on your stuff...

good to hear

I just brought him a set of Ohlins to rebuild/mod for my
'triple-threat' Yamaha srx700 snowmobile.
He is close to my work and will be working on weestrom forks soon.

Frank at Outdoor Purrformance in Avoca.
Only 2 people work on my bikes and he's one of them.
And he's an active member here who rides, a lot.
And he's dead sexy.

Strange that I didnt see anyone else riding in this morning on such a sunny day. With the windchill at -5 I really had to do some talking to convince my DR it was a good idea. That 15 degrees it is supposed to get to is going to feel mighty toasty on the way home, may have to shed a layer.

I was verbally abused cause I didn't ride in today! Way to go AC. Did anything get cold or not get cold this morning?
