Very well! I am almost done with my projects in Ohio and rehab is going well. Have been riding a bunch. Looking to be back in Maine mid-May and all things willing, I will spend a year (at least) out of ER's and just simply living and riding!

Good to hear that you're mending!

Help spread the word.

Could you guys spread the word on this, if it goes for what I am asking I will be replacing it with a 1200. If it does not sell then I still have a great bike. Thanks.

Too bad uncle sam has it in for me again this year...here's to 2012!

One of each?

If you, or anyone else is interested in going for a ride tomorrow, a couple of us are meeting in Hollis Center at "Your Country Store" at noon for a ride around the area for a couple hours. If anyone's interested just meet us there - we'll be heading out shortly after noon.

Good day for KLR'n it...

I took a short break from chores and G5 resto work for a blast down to Spruce Point and to check out the KLR mods...




Over to Juniper Point...



This is as quite as you will see Boothbay Harbor for a few months...




Traps all ready to go back in the water...





For those that use those roads, the Eddy Rd to the Croos Point Rd to the Mill Rd are in pretty decent shape actually. Little sand of course in the middle of each lane but not too heaved up.

Downtown Booze Bay Hahbah is torn up from the top of the hill to Sea Street...

The fork mods make a difference on the KLR.

I wasted my day trying to fix this. I learned that I needed PB Blaster to unstick some things that were violently rusted in place, so a shopping trip was needed there. The end result of my day was that I got the wheel off easily, the pad case with a combination of PB Blaster and a hammer, the rotor with a lot of hammering, and the previously broken stud with a similar application of PB Blaster and a hammer. The new pad set wasn't the right fit... only half will work, and I couldn't get them in there anyway because I couldn't slide the caliper back in. It appears I need a turn-in tool. I also let air into my brake line. So, now I've got a new rotor and new stud, but more work in my future. This is going to be a drop-at-a-shop thing just to not deal with it.



I should have spent my day playing with what I picked up yesterday. I also wish I could find a place that has Michelin T63 tires in stock. It looks like everybody has no stock for the rears. Thoughts on the Kenda K270 other than it being noisy?
