Relic. Need a parts bike?
Thanks for the heads up Gord. I'll keep it in mind but funds are scarce right now. And my efforts are being aimed at getting the Panther project moved along.

AND- best wishes for a speedy recovery Ron. Sounds like you are in good hands; McMaster is tops!

Go figure....

we're finally getting some snow and my sled is broke. Just driving around the yard and the lower tie rod arm end broke off! Fairly simple fix but I have to go thru the steps of getting a part (if they have it in stock) and then taking the old one off (if it will come off and isn't rusted in) and all this in 30 below weather coming tonight and for the rest of the week. Don't ya just feel sorry for me...come on, don't you

7" of snow so far and still another 4" today supposed fall...winter's finally started. Lets hope it ends soon

Just read your post.....X3..... no...X5

Why don't you and Lappegirl, pack your bags and head south for week to Phoenix... there will be a small ADV contingent there.
Mr and Mrs Jimtoe, Mr and Mrs Bentforks and me and Mrs Backroader.

ps: We are getting it again today, howling wind and snow..."white out" on the hiway.

Wish I could but no money right now

As I figured, part not in stock, got the knuckle out after two hours but can't get the stud out of the end of the rod no matter what I do. Looks like I'll be changing the rod also...order parts...put back together....put away for summer

Hope to see you on your way thru to paradise!

-30 for the past couple of days in Sudbury (after a few days of +7) then yesterday they called for a couple of centimeters. GF and I went to see a comedian last night and it had just started snowing when we got there.

Came out to about 8" on the car 2hrs later. Really light powder snow too! This morning, another 4" inches on the car. Now their calling for another 20cm overnight.

I expect to be there unless I end up covering for ZZR_Ron at the mine, which is a possibility....
