Hey guys, I'm looking for the bottom 1/3 of a crutch to use as a tripod leg when changing flat tires on my KLR. I'm not having a lot of luck finding one (or I'm just not looking in the right places). Anybody have an extra they'd like to part with?

I bought a adjustable cane from Walmart to make mine, I think it was $10. Course if I sell the DR I won't need it any more. I'm at 51st Ave. and Bell if you want it, I'ts free.

Sunday Meeting

I was planning on being there BUT, I bought a 1992 BMW GSPD in Colorado Springs, CO. I'm going to fly out of Mesa Airport at 6:00 AM to Colo Spgs and ride it back. I will make the next one.

yeah, but if you get a flat after you left it behind, its a long walk back to get it.

Question

Is there anyone from the Arizona area that will be joining us for the Labor Day ride? What bike are you riding?

No cost to attend the event, you just need to make your own campsite reservations. $10 per night at www.zionoponderosa.com.

I thought that I would share this on your thread since you guys are all relatively close to this area. I hope that that is alright.

This will be a fun event with hundreds of miles of awesome street and dirt trails.

Last year was a blast.

Thanks,
Jesse

Sorry Guys- we are not deliberately snubbing you or anything! Just the "stuff of life" that gets in the way

Unfortunately, it doesn't look good for camping this weekend. We kinda figured this, and that's why we haven't really been chiming in on this- we don't want other people's plans to be ruined because of us

Poor G working like a dog just to try and make ends meet. I hope somebody will throw him a bone.

Did Dave get the V-strom fixed? Mine is sorta doing the same thing.

Great to meet you folks today at Dunkin Donuts. Once it gets a bit cooler we'll have to do some riding!
