Waiting on a few parts right now, but otherwise shes ready to go and was hoping to test out Blackwater pretty soon!

Looks like a good forum here, glad to be involved.

Lots of rides to choose from. We are sorta slack now cause of the heat but we are still managing to ride because of the rain which make summer riding a blast.

If its not raining WATCH OUT - the heat will get you before you know it. This is serious business. I "hit the wall" (a term for heat exhaustion) last week and it was not pretty.

Im out for a Sunday ride but I might could make a Saturday Blackwater Ride. Get you n00bs a taste of the state park...

I don't have a clue about the KLR but I do have an assortment of shift levers over here. Maybe we can BEND one to fit. All depends on spline fit.

Any KLR guys out there to help.

R&R Racing

I picked up my FJR from Bob at R&R today. He had it ready on time and based on the estimate I got from my dealer (a dealer that I have a lot of faith in and as far as I know has never screwed me) saved me at least $100.

I'm glad to have a suspension guy in the local area and recommend him highly!!!!!

Barto, if u want I can extend your shifter an inch or so....no problem. You know what they say about BIG feet & BIG hands......big shoes & big gloves......in my case anyway

I'm dropping of my front forks for a rebuild with bob next week based on everyone's reviews. Seems like a great guy on the phone. I can't imagine the difference it's gonna make. I'm sure the 15 year old stock front end is tired.

After I get my forks back I'm gonna do a shakedown run in BW. If anyone of the new guys wants to join its gonna be a laid back ride. I'd be happy to show you around.
