I'm in for a 1/2 day. No particular ideas, though. We might be able to get up into the area behind Pony, but it's a bit far away. I'm easy, whatever you guys are thinking is cool.

Got a call from Brad and he'll be off line for the evening so he asked me to say :

Anybody who wants to go for a ride meet at Tyll's house (416 N 21 Ave, Bozeman-570-9841) tomorrow (Sat 10/18) at 11am.


We'll leave from here and follow the first inmate that leaves the driveway where ever he or she (friggen wishful thinking there) leads. We'll be back around 5ish.



See you then!

We ended up just running up Olsen Creek and making a cup of coffee on the firing range.

But it was out and about on the bike for a couple of hours. Nuthin' wrong with that.

Hey Bozones,

Missed my chance to meet up with some of you guys this year, looks like riding time is about over. Hope to change that in the spring.

I have a question I'm hoping to get some insight from locals. This fall I bought two Wee's in Iowa, flew out rode them home. One is for my wife but it may take her a while to get riding. Bikes are identical 2006's with about 3K a piece on them fully farkled (if thats possible). Actually, one is lowered for wifey.

I'm not a wrench guy. I will be learning as needs dictate but for now I'll be paying for maintenance, tire changes, any other issues. A few things I do pretty well, wrenching is not one of them.

My question: best motorcycle mechs around? Where do you take your bikes? If you have any insights I would appreciate your thoughts. Since its a small world, feel free to PM as well.

Hey, I'm up for beers and watching ADV movies this winter too if anyone is interested. Duke

Hello from Helena

Here are some of the tires I mounted this summer. Sort of a stick it on the wall sort of survey. Stop on by during the summer and I will show you how to mount and balance your own tires as I do them. Sometimes we have visitors from odd countries stop by here. It's only 6 months till spring.

Planning Weekend Ride

Weather looks like it will be good, my buddy and I are planning a last-ride-of-the-season trip.

leave Sat AM
ride somewhere on as much dirt as possible.
camp out
ride sunday
end up back in Bozone sunday nite.

I am aiming either to head roughly southwest of bozeman, towards dillon...or to go north into the big belts and over to white sulphur etc.
I have been plotting some routes that are subject to snowline. bad 4wd dirt roads are about the worst I expect to encounter.

we both have KLRs so 200 miles between gas stops is possible.

anyone want to come along?

btw, you guys gotta read this trip report. It's the best one i have seen yet.

as a result of that RR, I am packing ultralight-assault-mission-style. giddyup!

Cheap,

I would very much enjoy learning how to do it. Its certainly worth some good beers, scotch, whatever. Will be very interested to connect in the spring as I need to get some more dirt oriented tires on my bike. Duke

Hey Duke,

I don't have a Wee, but do have a Suzuk DRZ that I take to Summit Motorsports when I need service that I can't (or don't want to) perform myself. They have been good so far

Thanks. Summitt makes the most sense as they sell zukes, but, I have lived places where services like this were highly variable and personal experiences were important. Just wanted to make sure there were no horrer storries floating around. Duke
