Dude...seriously...$80 case would fix that once and for all.

How many $700 phones you need to wreck before you cave and do it?

He was able to hear me and called "local knowledge" to come help save me.

Only took three large men and a small boy to dislodge the turtle!

Hell, if $80 is too much, just get a $10 Valuables Dry Bag at Wally World like this one http://www.walmart.com/ip/Bear-Gryll...Large/25716626

Anybody want to ride in Cranberry Country this afternoon? I should be good to go by 1:30, and can be talked into riding either the F800GS or the TE450...

drop a line when there is work to be done. The 530 has a rack that I can fit a small chain saw on and I need to earn my keep with more then bud cases......

Chainsaw is overkill, if we can't go over it we'll go around. A machete and a folding saw work wonders though, nothing like fresh singletrack.

Loose Rear End



Not that rear end.

So, I head out with MalayznSenzahn yesterday, early morning in search of some north shore dirt. We're heading up 93 and I feel my rear starting to loosen up a bit. Think to myself, "Man, these chopped up roads really make a bike squirmy."

Get off the next exit, feel the rear of the bike really kick out. "Whoa! Must've hit a little oil." Continue on...for another 100 feet or so.

We pull over, take a look and sure enough - rear tire is completely flat. No tears, cuts or anything visible, but that bad boy is completely flat.

Long story short, I tell MalayznSenzahn to continue on, I leave the bike and my wife comes to pick me up. She wasn't psyched about dragging the kids on a random Daddy pickup.

Later in the day MalayznSenzahn heads back up north with me (this time with a cargo van) and we haul the venerable WR back to Medford. Thanks again MS! You're the man. Reminded me of the help I've received from a bunch of you fellas over the years...Mark, Dave, Hoffmeister.

MS is rocking a 690R. Impressive machine.

Adios Deathwings, hello 606s..

Weren't nothing man.

What the good Brother neglected to mention is that he came over at 545 AM in the morning to help me with a dead battery situation, I would have had just rolled over and gone back to bed had the roles been reversed. In doing so he painted me into a corner, leaving me no choice but to help him pick up mighty WRR later in the day. Jerk.

No I joke, I too have received help when needed from strangers in this community. Just paying it forward.

And for the record I thought he was just showing off is exit ramp power sliding skills.

...aaand I put together a couple hours at the Hodges Village Dam. Finally got to 500miles on the odometer, getting a little long in tooth, maybe time for a new one?

I discovered a couple things:
1. That bike is way more awesomer than I am a rider.
2. Who knew how much fun one could have going an average of 13.257mph on avg.

Yep, just gotta know where to look.

Jaime you should trade the WR in and go orange, I read in another thread that they don't get flats.

Might need some help looking, I'm originally from Georgetown, and didn't ride off road when I lived there. Now I'm in Sandown, NH, and 2 min from the Rockingham Rec Trail...
