Would anyone want a bunch of those little green propane tanks? I have something like 8 or 10 of them just taking up space. I tried refilling them with the adapter you can get at Harbor Freight. It works but doesn't give you a full charge. I'd give them to someone who isn't going to just use them for target practice.

How 'bout them what? You want to make burn barrels and smokers out of little green propane tanks? I don't care what anybody wants to do with them, but I'd prefer they not end up as desert litter.

Hey Tom - Have you started a thread for this? Big bike friendly?

Saturday DS ride

Hey y'all. I am putting a group together to ride a loop from Mayer, out to Palace sta, almost to Kirkland, to Prescott for lunch, down to 5 points, then Poland Jct road back to Mayer. We've ridden this route before and it's pretty and fun. Gas and lunch at 55 miles, total ride distance is about 90 miles.
Plan is to leave from the BLM parking area Southwest of Mayer at 8:30 Saturday (March 8)
I've got a GPS track: PM me with your email and I can send it to you
Dan

Made some progress on the CT70... 4 new wheel bearings, new rubber. The bike has made it off the workbench and back onto the floor. The 100% restoration fund dried up so now I'm just trying to get it back together. Doesn't look like much without the engine!

I don't know how you could tell in that pic, but I'm guessing you mean the milk crate on the back of the KLR.

I don't carry a milk crate! I carry a Zen Moto approved briefcase!

Yes, I had to rebuild the top end.

That's all complete but I need to split the right side off the lower case to replace a gasket.
