I've got an '08 with upgraded suspension on both ends if Simple's bike is pretty stock and you're of, um, "upgraded" mass like me (about 225 w/o gear). You're welcome to come out and ride it on a dirt road loop I've put together around the northeast of Rochester area. I'll lead you on the loop with one of my other bikes so you can put in some good seat time on it.

Motorcycle Bucket List

Yesterday I crossed one of my first things on my motorcycle bucket list: doing the SaddleSore 1000. My friend Andrew and I and rode up into the thumb, and then around the entire lower peninsula (with a little extra riding around in the middle) and did it in 20 hours. It is amazing what you can do with enough Advil and 5 Hour energy drinks.

Next up on the list is to ride up to the Arctic Circle. Anyone interested? I burned through my wife points for the year, so it will probably next year or so.

I'd be interested.

EDIT: I'd be interested in a ride up to the Arctic Circle, but as a ride destination, not a marathon ride in a single stretch.

LOL I don't think we'll be doing it as a marathon ride. I did the marathon once, I'm good. Thanks for making sure everyone is on the same page.

I have a DID 525 ZVMX chain I need to rivet. Master clip is ZJ clip with a slight hollow point at the tip.

Does any one have the rivet tool I can borrow or rent?

The mini keg is the whole reason I didn't quite make it up the stairs! I learn from my mistakes though and next time I'm going up the stairs with more speed.... to compensate for the extra weight.

Free gear

I am cleaning out the closet. Does anybody want the following:

Troy Lee Designs pants. Adult 32. Orange/blue. Matching jersey. These were given to me by Chris Filmore. He is smaller than me.

Fox pants. Youth 12-14. Blue/black.

Thor pants. Size 32 youth. Red/black.

Fox chest protector. Red/black. Looks like it would fit a kid about 8-10 years old.

Hallman USA adult chest protector.

Clymer manual for early KLR 650.

This stuff is free. So you can pick it up at my house in troy. Pm me if interested and I will give you directions.
