I will if I can get the new stator installed by then. Still waiting for it to arrive at the shop.

Not in yet! WOW! I would be pissed! Then again I'm about as ADHD as they come. What side of town? St. Augustine area we've grown to know so well, or you thinking something in the oposite direction? I wound up pulling out those rim locks, still need to do my highway test though.

I'd be on a big ol' R1150GS with street tires. Better give me the name of the pub in advance.

I think Jessie said he knows someone that has property off of Hecksher. I'll have to give him a call because I haven't heard from him in a while. Otherwise maybe we'll cruise down A1A to St Aug and stop at my bud's shop for lunch ().

BTW on TT they recommend using Loctite on the bolts that hold the stator down. How long does that need to cure? Like 24h?

PS: PirateJohn, if we go to St Aug the shop is Local Heroes on Spanish St. If we ride at our spot off US1 it'll be The Rooster. If we go somewhere off of Hecksher we'll probably wind up at Sanddollar by the ferry. If not one of those we'll end up at the beach, drinking on the porch.

Welllll check that out! That is EXACTLY how I pictured my first dealings with the sand!

The Sand Fleas already warned me about my big pig and sand. They told me to stay away from the Ocala NF until I could bring a real bike...

Sounds like a plan! Let me know when/where and I'll try not to get lost getting there!

That was a photoshoot that BMW did in the Ocala Forest a number of years ago (2002 I think - it was the intro to the Adventure).

Long story short, no one could ride one of the big pigs in sand, especially with street tires. At this point in the game I had already "retired" and was taking photos when the factory guys and a few other guys with good insurance (or plenty of spare parts) gave it a try.

Guys, what time is the ride? I may not be able to do an early ride 'cause Buddy Vitt (y'all may know him) has to drop by Sat. AM to do some repairs.
