Once i wake up, i'll take the old filter off and look at it for a long time. I'll appreciate the fine metalurgical work that's gone into crimping a tin can onto a steel hub with metric threads-- fuckin' Wright Brothers domain. Ummm-hmmm.

I'll then take a Swing-Away can opener and split the old filter 'canister' from the mounting base. I'll remove the paper filter media and clean the can out. Once clean i'll pack in the cheesecloth, put the assembly in a vise, and tack-weld the canister back to the base. Maybe i'll let it cool off, maybe not-- i like to keep the bike guessing as to what i'll do.

After another nap i'll install the recycled filter, knowing in my Bavarian heart-of-hearts that i kick much fabricating Ass.

i must be doing something right, as my 1100 is a ballsack-shift from 108K

YMMV, of course

Had me goin there for about a nanosecond Mug.

Scott, are you doing that thing again the 1st weekend of Dec? The one we missed last year and I think the year before, because we were in Savannah for the IBMWR Low Country Boil?











Yeah, well, we'll be in Savannah again this year.

See ya in Tally - fyi those dates I couldn't remember 15th to 22nd. Buttery Nipple night is the 19th.

Scott, I'll go riding tomorrow, I doubt I'll take pics or write stuff but I'll be riding....Just use your imagination it'll probably be better than my writing or pics plus the crashes are much more vivid and gnarly.

Shaun, you should take the day off and go riding with us.

I rode all afternoon in ANF and Talquin Management area Monday after fiddling with my bikes all morning... Miller BMW closed and forced me to become my own maintenance resource again...

The weather was gorgeous as it has been all week but here comes the weekend and all the rain... That's Tallahassee I guess.

Loose sand is scarce except on heavily used trails and the weather is GREAT.

Now if I could only figure out how to change my blinker fluid and check my muffler bearings. That one's not in the dang manual... Might have to call Scott...

Y'all get out and ride. The weather's been the best we've had since about April and the conditions are nearly perfect.

Too bad Buzz is selling all his bikes and trucks and getting a little car... Wonder what happened to him? Just sayin'....

Not much to write other than an awsome 200 mile mostly dirt ride thru Gulf, Calhoun, Washington & Bay Countys.

Good stuff Ogre-- would you be willing to tell us where these forest roads are in the counties you listed? I'm always collecting dirt routes to stitch together to make a Trans-Panhandle trail

Ogre, a heads up on your tag. They can fine you $1000 for that, and suspend your license. I would mount it horizontal to avoid issues with the police.
