Damn! Hater comes out of the woods... well i hope some of you guys can make it to the next ride. should be a good time as usual. Monti if you want try and make it, I can't imagine costs being high. We always have a ton of food, fuel is never an issue either. I can't think of anything else you would need.

[QUOTE=chip;17895120] Hater comes out of the woods...

Woods is right, I've been in the Pacific Northwest for a month now, with no real end in sight yet. So count me out for this trip. I haven't been on the dirt in a long time, both bikes have brand new knobbies on them. Just waiting. I'm going to have to take them to Baja in the next couple of months or all three of us are going to go crazy.
If I didn't tease Lane about his BMW he'd think I didn't love him anymore. We can't have that. He set that one up too well for me not to swing at it.

Bah... Yer just jealous of my ride.

Home balanced wheel/tire was smoother'n shit to DV and back. Gotta put the wheel lock in the front for the next one and balance the 530 wheels as well. Makes it ride a whole lot nicer on the pavement. Just wish I had the resources to ride/tinker more, im tapped bad now...

C'mon taxman hurry up n'git my paperwork all here! If I can get the damn truck paid in full I just might be able to ride more than 5 times in 2012.

Sure. Only hard part is the wheel weights - I have a box full of the cheap kind that I modify to work on a dirty bike wheel. You are welcome to use those if you like but it aint purdy. The only thing you will need is clear silicone (like what you can get at osh) to help keep em on.

We can true up the wheel and snug the spokes up too.

Don't feel impelled to bring your own - I bought a big ass box of them (several year supply if not a decade hah)

Lemme know... The Mrs. starts loading up my week pretty quick if I don't reserve my kitchen passes well in advance. I know Tuesday is out - gymnastics and the munchkin in tow. The rest of the week nothing in particular going on... Yet.
