I thought Cowboys and Aliens was very entertaining. Not much of a western, but very entertaining. Plus, that one chick is a babe.

Red Hill is the only movie that is instant streaming. The rest you would have to get via old fashioned snail mail Netflix.

I really liked Open Range, but agree that it was helped because Kevin Costner was limited by how much "Costner" he could infuse into the movie.

I wish the movie industry would do more westerns; there are many good "western" books that could make great movies.

I watched "Pale Rider" recently. That movie is kickass. So is "Shane".

"The Outlaw Josey Wales" doesn't get old either. Class movies all of them.

I like them both, but Pale Rider "borrows" a bit too much from Shane IMO. Since we're talking westerns, any conversation has gotta include The Wild Bunch, High Noon and The Searchers. True Grit (new and old), The Magnificent Seven and The Seven Samurai are right up there too. And, for a change of pace I'll throw in Little Big Man and Blazing Saddles.

I love Westerns.

On a related note, whenever possible I try to make it home or to the shop in time to see the back to back episodes of The Rifleman on MeTV. (5:00-6:00) The 5:30 episode tonight was written and directed by a guy named Peckinpah.

God I love westerns.

Have you ever seen Outland with Sean Connery? It's like High Noon set in the asteroid belt.

No, I'll have to look that one up.

"Westerns" don't have to take place in the west. In fact, some of the best take place in far east.

Well the one is a remake of the other, so that is to be expected. But Shane remains a pleasure to watch because of its originality.

EDIT: And although it was a smallish (but very important) part, Jack Palance was fantastic. So was Alan Ladd of course.

I saw that a long while ago. It is a pretty good movie - very underrated as I recall. I never made the connection to High Noon, but it does have a lot of those elements.

I like Sci Fi too, but since we're talking about Connery, let's make sure to never, ever mention Zardoz.

There was one of those "motivational posters" out a while back, it had Clint Eastwood holding a gun standing next to Morgan Freeman. The caption below read:

"When I die I want to be shot by Clint Eastwood while Morgan Freeman narrates it"

It was a good thing I had not taken a drink of Mountain Dew right before that or I would have needed a new keyboard.

Would anyone happen to have a few jets for a 2001 DRZ E laying around that they wish to part with?

I am looking for a 145 and possibly a 148?

Mikuni or Keihin jets? I might have some Keihin Jets in that size, I will look tonight.

Dennis Kirk sells them though, FYI.

I suspect you want this type:

I was hoping to have them by this weekend as my mechanic is coming to visit. Wait a second....isn't Dennis Kirk local?

Google Fu don't fail me now!

P.S. It is the stock carb, which I believe is the Keihin model.

If you order from Dennis Kirk, you will have the parts next day, because they are just up the road in Rush City. You can always drive up there and get the parts too, but UPS ground shipping will have the parts to you next day, being as yer local.

I don't know anything about DRZ's, so I can't help you there, but I bet there is a thread on this very site with that info.

I just mapped their location and from work they are still 53 miles away...UPS might be a better option

Yep, definitely. 7 or 8 bucks or something UPS ground, and you'll get the stuff toot sweet.

Mind you, you almost certainly need some other shit and will be over the 100 dollar mark and get free shipping anyway.

You must need a new tyre for something, surely?

Or some of the many very fine chromed components?
