Zen Moto on Shipping Wars

Hey! Has anybody on here been watching Shipping Wars on A&E?
http://www.shippingwars.net/?page_id=18
I was watching one from a couple nights ago and one of the shippers was hauling a couple motorcycles from back east somewhere to Phoenix. When he unloaded one of them, there was Dillon standing there in his Zen Moto T-shirt shaking his hand. Cool stuff! So your a reality show star now Dillon?

Just a reminder that Dual Sport Desert Daze is just around the corner (March 8-11) and the deadline for ordering a t-shirt is February 15th.

If you want an event t-shirt, check out the STUFF page at www.dualsportdesertdaze.com.



Looking forward to seeing folks there.

It's about time you replaced the original plug in that bike. You should get another 100k out of the new plug.

Usually it is the threads in the head stripping out when you over tighten the plug. What torque did you use to separate the threads from the rest of the plug? It was supposed to be 12nm not 120 foot pounds.

Thanks Eddie, you always have a way of putting a smile on my face.

Glad you made it back safe.

Let's ride!

Hold on! What's missing?? Oh, the kitchen sink.
Is it a catch 22? Carry more stuff for when the bike brakes or carry less stuff which lightens the load and less strain on the bike causing less breakdowns. I don't know.
