One of these days (before it snows) I just might have to do that. Gonna be around this weekend? I could be convinced to dig the motor bike out of the garage, dump some fuel in it, and stop by.

Unless you have gotten on an airplane to some far away land.

On my to-do list. When I put tapered bearings into the the ST I didn't have a torque wrench big enough for the steering head nut.

Friday, Oct. 4

I have to use up a comp day and thinking about exploring gravel roads south west of Red Wing on some .gpx routes from Powershouse. Hopefully the weather will hold and be nice. Home by dinner time if anyone wants to play hooky....not that I condone that sort of behavior.

Laugh high time for pie time

Hi,
I don't have a 1200GSW (yet) but I do have homemade raspberry kuchen
that I made for my wife's birthday today. It's kind of like custard pie with
raspberries on top (and I added an outer ring of wild blueberries for the heck of it).

A healthy piece might be available for a GSW owner who wants to show off
their GSW. I'm in W. St. Paul which is really SE of St. Paul.

Bob
wanna be GSW owner.....

My grandma made the best kuchen and I miss it greatly. Many memories of arriving at her house late after a 4 hour road trip. She would be asleep, but there was a freshly baked kuchen on the counter still slightly warm.

Sadly see made it from memory and we never found a recipe after she passed. My family occasionally attempts a few recipes we find on-line. Never been able to reproduce hers though.

I don't have a water cooled GS or any GS...

Are there any short+fat members with extra gear they don't use?

I had plans to get a full Stich but its out of the budget sadly :(

Anyways I am 5' 6" and 220 and looking for a jacket and pants, I have everything else. Dirty, tattered, smelly, etc all fine Cheap is the name of the game. I would rather spend my money on killer lights and heated gloves. The rest will be spent on gas and beer

A good jacket and boots would be fine. I was thinking of the Tourmaster Sabre 3 jacket for $150 bucks. Boots in the same price range too. I don't wear the armored pants much. Black jeans for cold weather. I was looking for some old fashioned black leather jacket, don't care to look like a power ranger all the time. Stich looks like expensive as hell Carharts to me....

Heated grips can be done for $30 bucks.
