What's wrong with the way it looks?


They make delicious Margaritas. Laugh if you will, but you'll REALLY be laughing after two of them.

One of the best I've had. Victoria's in Baja is better, but you have to ride quite a bit further to get one.

Juan's was pretty good Mexican (in the middle of town) I thought the Brewery had really good food...and the beer wasn't bad either. There were alot of locals at Juan's.

Great videos. A bunch of us were there last November for 8 days of riding.
Brings back great memories. Thanks for sharing.

I agree. I stopped at the Love Muffin for coffee and breaky because of your recommendation. It was good. It was the morning we departed to do the WRT.

I've been to Blu Pig a few times. It's nice for a change for sure, however I love mexican food (most people get sick of it). I could eat there every night. haha. I think Zaks was the Italian place? It was ok, but not great. Same with Brewery. Just seemed pretty typical but I don't order too fancy of meals and beer is beer as long as it's cold.

I'm excited to go back if I can. Moab is my kind of place. Lots of like minded people. Laid back. Tons of fun just outside of town. I could live there for sure. Sad that it's under fire from tree huggers and they want to stop motorized OHV use. I love nature and the environment. It's why I do what I do, but I think it should be shared with motorized enthusiasts as well.

Floss!

Torque wrenches at CDN tire are on sale this week starting today. 50% off. ~50$

They aren't snap-on, but for the average garage mechanic they are just fine.

(Edit: They may only be 1/2 and 3/8. It's nice to have a 1/4" too. I just use one of the bendy torque arm ones which seems to work fine for things up to 25ish ft-lbs)

Thanks Shibby. I have a 1/2 that I use for torqueing the wheel nuts and have an adaptor to 3/8. But if CT is having a good sale it would be worth picking up a 3/8 and/or 1/4. No need to use the 2 foot long handle to torque down small bolts.

Their still pretty big. The 1/4" might be on sale too. Not sure. Worth a check.

I also use a 1/2 with reducer. Not idea, but works.

That all looked like clean open road to ride on to me. Even some roads that scoot off the main to test your riding skills in the snow! Haha!

When you read this in the morning, there will be 2 more days, and winter will be over. That's what my crystal ball is telling me. Ha Ha.

wildrose mx park

I called the info line about the condition of the park. Message was from middle of Feb saying snowy and wet. Must still be bad but thought I would check. I plan to take some cones (pop cans?) out to one of the waiprous staging areas and set up some drills to tune up. Will set up the same drills I can remember from the Blackfoot course. Would be cool to have a few riders. Woulld probably truck my bike out so I could carry some stuff. Will post when I plan to go to see who can make it.

Great day for a ride

It's great having a wife that rides. Finished up our chores etc around 1:30, I'm feeling a little blue and she suggests going for a ride. We had a nice little poodle from Okotoks, thru' Millarville, on to Turner Valley & Black Diamond then home to Okotoks. Not very far but just what the doctor ordered
Second ride of the season and feeling good. Bye bye winter blues. Didn't see one other bike tho' on such a great day.

Ground still frozen in my stomping grounds so no riding. Turned a lot of wrenches on my dirt bike this past week, and my buddies 690 today.

Nearly got both bikes ready to ride. Few things to do on either bike, then the Honda will see it's love after the long weekend of riding down south.

I'm starting to get the itch to ride too! It was put off a few weeks by my buddy letting me ride his back-up bike with studded tires.
