Good practice and research again this weekend. Big bikes running the desert. I enjoyed the scenery and company. Beemer Adventure, Katoom Adventure, Tiger 800 (very fresh) and the Yammie S10.......

Can't we all just get along.....

What a great day for a ride! Thanks again for picking the routes Walrus an Medic! I wish we could have gotten pictures of us jumping off a couple of those steep drops, they got my heart pumpin!
I'm going to have to put some TKC's on for these kinds of rides, I don't know how you guys are able to go so fast on loose stuff without them!

And, I'm not one to throw anyone under the bus.....normally....but I'm just saying... Pluric couldn't make this ride and no body wiped out, peed on themselves or had a breakdown.... coincidence?? I'll let you guys be the judge!

Got a couple questions if anyone wants to chime in. I'm doing a welding art class in June and have an idea to do some furniture out of a car engine. First, does anyone know where the best place to get a small block or maybe inline 4 engine. Then does anyone know of good sand blasting place or if I could rent time on a sand blaster?

thanks
David

Ran over Wolf Creek this morning... no traffic what so ever- epic speed run! Hit the bottom on the Hanna side, flipped a bitch and throttled back up. Coming back I had to pass a couple pairs of cars - still not bad at all. Temps were 37 coming out of Woodruff, up to 45 mid mountain, and 40 at the summit... about the same on the east side. Didn't get any warmth until half way down Parleys when it broke 50.

Diggin' the new ride!

Congrats on a newer bike.

Theorectumly it's the non servo, thought all '07 were that way? now you're putting mind worms in - gotta check.

Pros: power, high speed handling, extended range, RID is light years better, Nice accessories from PO

Cons: 11 had more cockpit room, Works suspension on the 11 is a gazillion time better than the OEM on the 12 (even though 12 was rebuilt just before purchase), Fastway pegs from 11 don't fit, Sargent seat makes my tailbone numb (Corbin from 11 doesn't fit), Years of getting the 11 "just right"" - now have to start over!

Got 7 weeks to futz with it before I launch to Yellowknife... plenty o' time.

Maybe if Pluric owned a Beemer or a katoom he'd have had a running bike this weekend......

Oww.

Even if I owned one of those my trailer was being used to pick up drywall for the kids remodel.
