J4S....thanks for the idea on breakfast! Pecan waffle, bacon, and a side of wheat toast.....friggin awesome!

The heated grips are now fully operational and toasty warm. They also updated all the software in the computer since the bike has never been to a dealer for service since new. I guess I didn't get the real information from the PO.

Good chatting with you today Garrett and have a great time camping and riding next weekend!

Ordered some Klim pants today since they didn't have what I needed, hopefully in a week or two they will be in.....oh and they beat Revzilla prices again by quite a bit. I also had a pair of BMW gloves which had a seam splitting and they are going to warranty them....nice! So it looks like I will be getting the new style when they come in next month. I gotta say Morton's is really a great place with super nice staff!

We also found a short dirt road around Fred....as always great ridin with you today Dave-O!

So while Blaster and I were were out today, we stooped at Gander Mtn...I think I found the next add on for my DRZ...



Should help with those deep water crossings.

Have you used this stuff before? How well does it hold up? I would like to spray a few pieces on the HP2, front fender and rear plastic, to finish the transformation from grey to black and am concerned about how well it will hold up.

Silly rabbit, it's not a KTM. You only should have done 2 steps (loosen oil plug and unscrew filter!)...

Actually, like the KTM, there are two drain plugs...

The rest was to clean out the air box and carb...
Then I figured I should check the electrical connections...
Then I found vent tubes with foam in them...
Then.....



It was pretty much disassembled

That looks like way more fun than mowing, trimming, and burning limbs in the redneck fire pit.
