Still fogged in...

Been four days now.

There's a runway in this picture somewhere.

Ron, you better hurry up and get back...you have to leave to go back up soon

That sucks, hope your back for the weekend, looks like the last good weather for about 5 months or so. Still rideable out there! I won't be riding this weekend though...have to prep for Moab

We left a couple of Bell guys stranded in Cat Lake for three extra days. It's been pretty shitty. Better to be on the ground wishing you were in the air, than in the air wishing you were on the ground. Just think of the overtime!

Pretty quiet here...

ZZR-Ron, did you ever make it home? Hope you didn't miss this little bit of nice weather...it's over now

Not much going on in this thread. Everyone give up on riding for this year? I've been prepping the 530 for Moab. Finally changed the front flat tire and put in my "Brand new never used" backup tube...seems it ain't so brand new anymore after bouncing and rubbing in the back fender bag for 6 months. Big hole worn thru it Had to buy a new one and install it instead. Also found that my glue in the patch kit took a hit sometime and was spread out all over the patches...nice Guess I should check it more often.

Fixed everything up, changed oils, cleaned air filter...good to go Can't wait to get out of here and venture south again...4 days and counting

Can't wait...

The KLX is ready to go and just collecting all the other stuff together.

Hope you have a great run.

Tough luck Ron, you and the wife should take a winter holiday this year, some where the riding weather is favourable.

No...I think I'm going tomorrow to pick one up. Phoned about it today and they have one in stock. I guess this trips all about riding...so the bike better start

Good to hear from you again...thought you'd run out of town...or at least flown out

Rob, get the Ballistic Evo, light and plenty of cranking Amps.... cheaper than the stock usually.

Now that I waited so long, I don't have much of a choice in the batteries that they sell here. Could've ordered what ever I wanted earlier...but no, I had to wait Going with the most cranking amps they have...and of course it's the most expensive

Might end up a gas tank short of reaching Moab now...better bring a tow strap BackRoader

New Battery...

Okay, picked up a new battery today and was in luck. They had a EVO Battery in stock...good to go. Now I'll have to spend a couple of nights sleeping in the truck to even out the funds

Coming up fast...
