Powerwheelz is a great little shop. They are small, so they don't have a ton of different sizes/types of gear in stock, but they'll meet or beat most online prices for stuff they order. What are you looking for? I was thinking about stopping in there on my way home from work today.

She's got a near-new takeoff Shinko 705 in 120/90-17 (KLR size) on the floor for $35. If I knew for sure that I'll keep my KLR for another year, I would buy it...

Question Maine Newby

Looking for some experienced rider(s) who know the trails around Ellsworth and can help me pick up my 1200GS when I drop it. Food, lodging and drink provided for traveler. Good conversation and teaching opportunity for a retired CEO who hasn't done nearly enough. Also, does anyone know of a off road course for new riders?

Yeah. Thanks. It's way up there. I think that's why the price is right!
