Dear thief,

I still have the top box, tank bag, and GPS that goes on the bike. Drop by and I will have them ready for you.
Have a buddy out of state list the cover for you....cheap and see what turns up

There's also the chance, now that it's light, the thief will see what they got
and just bring it back.


Sorry, too soon?

I'm betting kids.....have you gone through the adjoining neighborhood?

BTW, that cover on ksl ads might get a quicker bite......

SALT LAKE CITY — If you love food, and love food with bacon even more, then get your tastebuds to Baconfest.

Friday, Granary Row is hosting their first-ever Baconfest. To celebrate, food trucks and carts at the weekend event will each prepare a "bacon-centric" special.
I'm gonna get some..........

While Hick is riding up to the canadian border, I will post a few pics of his bike being put back together.
Moto Medic came out to our shop to pull the engine and split the cases.


It took him about 3 hours to pull the engine and another 2 1/2 hours to split the cases.


The damaged case.


Parts everywhere.




Got the case welded in Spokane and back to our shop. Moto Medic starts putting it back together. Yesterday, he finished and he and Hick started putting the engine back in the bike.





Getting the carbs on.


Nothing left but the seat.


Bike seemed to run ok.


He should be pretty close to the border right now. Have a safe ride Hick, and see you in November.

I am afraid my weekend is booked up as well. Let's do it some other time.

[QUOTE=Roostre;22163379]Woke up this morning to find that my bike was stolen. 3 dogs and they are all heavy sleepers I guess.

Anyways I would appreciate if you could keep your eyes out for it. I know it isn't much, but I would like to find it before it becomes some wanna-be-orange-county chopper or something.

I'll keep my eye out for it in SLC. Not a lot of Ulysses running around.

Any Utards heading up that way? I just booked my room! I've been thinking of installing a Rekluse on the 950, and I wonder if the vendors all have sales at this event?

Met a few of the I-BMW crowd and some friends from back east in Gunnison, CO. Great riding all around that area and real beer!
