Thanks for all the quick replys on the reload'in

Scott, I'd be intrested in your old stuff... PM me what you want for it. Dont want to spend too much, but you can't find any ammo anywhere so it would be nice to be able to reload if it came down to it. I have no need for the .32 though.

Beer? Review

As someone who makes great sacrifices in order to enjoy mass quantities of beverages like Becks on the cold dreary weekends of winter (is summer any different? Uhhh Hmm) I think it is time to come back to Planet Roanoke and try out a more locally favored beverage you may have run over from time to time on the side of the road under a 581 overpass. I'm thinking of making a quality video review of the Steel Reserve 211~! now last time I had one of these types of beverages it was the "Jungle Juice" a couple summers ago. I remember sitting on the chest freezer after work Friday sipping this stuff and halfway through it was time to recycle some. I almost fell over once on the ground walking. I was temporarily a Zombie! You wonder how the zombie apocalypse will start? I think one of the keys to either defeating or just going ahead and joining the zombies, is to consume some of the potions that create them! I'll post the review once complete on the gilerd77 youtube channel! I hear from a coworker the 211 gets the job done!

Rubi -

I have two Dillon 650s, a Forster Co-Ax and a Redding T7 turret press. I started with a Rock Chucker but couldn't keep up with the 1,000 rounds a week I was shooting (IPSC). I quit counting reloads at half a millon, have shot competitively since shortly after I got out of the Marine Corps in 1968 and have an entire shelf full of load data. You can get a Tong Press (lee or Lyman) that will load everything but they are painfully slow. The Rock Chucker is a very good choice as is the Redding Boss II. If you think you might load large cartridges - like the .45-100 or the .375 H&H, get either the Rock Chucker Supreme or the Redding Big Boss. They have larger frames that will accommodate the longer cases. My preference for a non-progerssive press is the Redding T7 turret (RCBS makes a good turret too). RCBS also has a new single stage called the Summit that looks promising. A MEC Jr. is a good shotgun press unless you want to start shoot Sporting Clays, then you'll need something bigger. If you have any questions, ask. I load, and have data for: 9mm, 9mm Major, .38 Super, .38 Special, .357 Mag, .40S&W, 10MM, .44 Spcl, .44 Mag, .45ACP, .454 Casull, .223, 5.56x45 (yes, they are different), .300x21, .308, .30-06, .375H&H, .45-70

Wolfman Racks

Took the new XT to a buddy who has a welder......

These are the Wolfman Racks for a WR250R. We cut the legs and rewelded to make it work. Just need to reposition the rear turn signals to not interfere with the dry bags.







There is a powder coating place in Waynesboro that has treated me well in the past so I will be taking them off and heading over there tomorrow. Went to the range and shot a few rounds with the .45 before my hands got frostbite. Got home and the UPS guy had showed up. Small Pelican case and rear rack..... pictures soon!

I moved the rear turn signals on my old XT to the tail light housing.




Gets them out of the way and looks like they came that way from the factory.

Easy mod to do. You need to remove the tail light. Put them where there is enough room for the nuts and a washer on the inside of the tail light housing. I might have squared off the washers to fit inside.

I think I drilled a hole in the fender for the wires and had to lengthen the wire. The hardest part was getting the washers on and the nuts started on the stalks.

Thanks Wayne! That looks nice. I was thinking about doing that OR making brackets OR buying new smaller blinkers OR....

I bought a Pelican case to hold tools, cell, wallet, gun, etc when riding but I've already discovered its way too small! Need to figure out what to do.

Sorry Kevin. I'll be back overseas in April. I get home just a few days before Camp Cow Crap.

Tank bag? I like tank bags for cell phone, wallet, and other incidentals that I need to put my hands on quickly & easily. Keep the Pelican case for things like the gun, etc... that may need to be locked up.

I have a tank bag that fits really well on the Ducati but I just don't like how it sits on the XT's tank. I ride with Kevin so waterproofing is a must. The Pelican case is waterproof and lockable for gun, tools, and the little charging set-up I'm making for Scala G4, cell and iPod. The case will also hold my clear (or tinted) visor for my helmet. And by securing it to the rear rack I can still install and remove the drybags pretty quickly. I'm alway open to new ideas though.

Sounds like you might need a new tank bag for the XT and keep the one you already have for the Duc!? Maybe the Giant Loop Fandango or Diablo.
