Bitchin ride today!!!! Thanks Eddy and Alex for setting that up . Thanks to Kevin & Mary, Eddy, Alex, and Kurt for the checking up on me with the broken shifter, tailing me and making sure I got home in one piece. BTW: New add to the tail bag tool set, a tube of Quick Fix Epoxy (found at Wal-Mart), sets in 15 Min, cures in one hour, even works on wet surfaces. I'm going to buy a new shifter, but will carry the currnt one for a spare, as I dont think the thing will break even if I hit it with a 12LBS Sledge.

Again thanks everyone, it was great!!!!!

today's Ride

Me & Alethor decided to go on an exploration ride to z area located beteween Mayer & jerome or improvise a ride as we go . I was at z meet& greed meetin' this mornin' to see who dares joinin' us to this adventure so we end up with z followin' Challengers :
me , Alethor , Robin (co-founder SDSR) and Kirt .
we took I-17 to Blk-Canyon-city and we took z off-rd from there to Mayer


After a quick pit stp in Mayer we connected with Kevin & Mary on their Bimmer GS1200R , from there we took s. Orme rd to 169 . Once there Kevin decided to keep on goin' to Jerome where we'll meet at later time his muscle up Bimmer is way to heavy for that typical ride we're on .we took then Cherry rd and we turned left to NF132 , (by z way i planned that ride last year, finally made it) . we were blocked by a tree in our path ( some pics. shown from Az bike week) , so it was easy to turn around it on z right and in z wash , Alethor took z initiative to go first and scout for detour the rest followed . Kirt was catchin' up to me at moments on his blue sweet KLR.

Not far behind Robin ,then Alex , by z way thank u Alex for being the sweep rider u did great job



Me & Kirt waitin' for Robin & Alex & enjoyin' z spectacular sceneries and of course takin' some pics.

By z time we get to Jerome Kevin & Mary had already reserved a table for all of us otherwise we would be havin' late dinner because of z long waiting line ,that's sweet of u guys to do .

After a nice meal for a bunch of hungry riders we air up z tires and home we go . Once passin in Cotton wood Robin had his shiter lever cracked and barely holdin' on so we stop to try to resolve that matter right next to Wal-Mart . Robin went inside z store and come out with some epoxy quick fix for metal this stuff blows my mind , he applied less than hand full of that on z broken lever wait 20 min & it's hard like platinum and i was like WHAT ??
That was amazin' i want some of that stuff but in order to have the feel of ur foot on z lever Robin has to drive his bike with a half set of boot home
z other tennis shoe i kept it as souvenir

Mahalo for the offer!

I figure that if I can get the goop off of it I'll blast a couple of beads on it front and back. Funny thing is that I have used other welding epoxies before and sometimes the they hold better then the original weld. No, I am looking at a couple of different manufactures for extended shift levers for riding boots. I also need serrated foot pegs.

Shift Lever:

Shifter with QuickSteel Fix

QuickSteel Package (Available at Wal-Mart):

Product container

Link to Manufactures website for more info:

http://bluemagicusa.com/index.php/bl...c/products/164

In reading the product package, this stuff can even be used while the parts are submerged in water. I used Brakleen to clean the part and sand paper to remove the paint down to bare metal. I assume that if you had a punctured crank case or side cover, you could also seal it with this stuff?/!

I used some of that same stuff to plug up a copper water line I drilled a hole in. It worked great, even under water pressure.

Guess that means two more things we should have in our repair kits in addition to the epoxy. A good cleaner, and sand paper.

We're going to compile so much stuff, Robin is going to have to follow us around in the shiny new "Rescue Vehicle" just to carry it all.
