So with the purchase of some Yamaha rear drive oil I came home and changed out the drive shaft oil. Break in on the S10 is officially done. Just in time for snow, but it's okay! I got heated grips today also.

I had some intereting news on the V-Strom from IP. Can't wait to see the results.

Anyone here interested in some truck tires? I have a set of 4 Goodyear Wrangler 235/75R16 off a ˝ ton pickup with around 20,000 miles on them.
I also have a set of 4 BF Goodrich Radial Long Trail T/A 245/75R/16 also off a ˝ ton pickup with around 40,000 miles. I have some pics if anyone is interested.

Quit my job

So after 8 year of exposure to the ultra left wing types I could take no more, so I quit. If anyone is in need of a taxidermist keep me in mind.

Best of luck to you. My cousin is a taxidermist, I never realized just how much work it was until I saw his shop and all of the projects he had going.

I like the website, I can see already you're much more organized than him. His turn around time is well over 6 months sometimes. It's a hobby for him, he has another job also.

Finished up the add-ons to the GS and have some take offs that I can get rid of. Thought I'd post em here before putting em in the parts forum:
Touratech 60c mount (non-locking)
Touratech 27xx locking mount
Garmin 2730 with 12V cord only. It doesn't have the fuse holder or any of the AC adapters or the car mount stuff.
Factory low seat for 09 GS. Not sure what other years it will fit.

The current prices for the mounts are $100 for the 60c, $200 for the 27xx and $300 for the seat.

I figure 50% off is a good place to start. If you're interested in the 2730 make me an offer since I have no idea what it's even worth.

(FWIW the 2730 appears to function normally. It did everything I asked it to at least.)

If you want some pictures let me know.

Ughh... I'm not ready for this.

Speaking of, anybody have a stud gun? I've got an old beater CB550 I want to try studded trackmasters on.

19 front, have both a 16 and 18 rear. More than likely i'll run the 18 for more tire selection.
