Would a ball end allen wrench work? If it's the 6mm I have one you can use.

MAYBE, that would allow a bit more of an angle.

Im thinking of just taking a cheap one, and cutting the short leg down to fit under the clamps.

like this

NZ behind more than 20 sec at the first mark.
At 2nd mark...USA up by 29 seconds...woot.

YIKES....they are catching up....the boats are going 40+ knots! NZ considering a fake jibe...?? Nope. 17 seconds at last mark.

USA wins by 27 seconds! Can they come back from what was really an 11-1 deficit? NZ leads 8 races to 7. First to 9 wins the Cup.

USA lost the start of the second race today, but came from behind to win.

So, despite the stupid penalty imposed last year, USA is now one win from retaining the Cup!!!!
Still not sure I like the boats (get off my lawn) but the suspense is killing me. America needs to win this year.

I wish more countries would join & that it would get more coverage in the prelims....

When is the next race? I've only watched a couple of the races. The speed and agility of those yachts is amazing. I doubt whether much of this technology will trickle down to the weekend yachtie.
Perhaps if they went back to a more traditional design the cost of entry would be lower and more countries might participate.

The next, and LAST race is today at 3:10pm..our time. Less than an hour. Winner today takes the cup.
You can catch it online on YouTube HERE ; or on the America's Cup app.

Gus, the coverage for the Louis Vuitton was excellent this year, everything streamed live in HD, and much of it on ESPN. The Defender prelims were covered less, but way better than in the 80's when I went in person to see them at Newport.
Gus, I know what you mean about the "boats", but the 2 starts yesterday (races 17 and 18) were really old-school match racing tactics. No one figured anyone would try that in a 26 meter screaming cat.

You can get your own personal foiling boat today! I saw one at Newport a couple of months ago. It's called a "Moth":

New NWA Rider

Well, It's seems like it's time to break up the undergarment luvfest going on here. I never knew there were so many Tranny's in NWA....

I'm a recent transplant to NWA (say less than 2 years) and I have had the pleasure of riding most of the motorcyling meca paved roads in the area, but I haven't ventured off road much. I recently picked up another KLR and I am working it over like I did my previous 09.

10cup introduced me a while back when I had my other KLR, but I never got to ride with any of yall. I picked up a DL1K about the same time 10cup picked up his GS and then he upped and moved on me. Again, I didn't get to meet or ride with any of ya.

Well, now that I have the KLR, I have been exploring the Beaver Lake area. Mostly dirt roads, but I did meander on a few trails. What I am looking for is GPS tracks for the other side of the motorcycling meca roads around NWA or maybe an introduction to some of the riding crews around the area that like to explore the gravel, dirt and trails.

Let me know where to start...
