Went from 44 to 47. I was surprised that 3 teeth could add so much to the sprocket diameter.

The vibration was only noticeable at highway speed. It was cyclic: every 1.5 seconds I'd get a half second of harsh vibration, enough to disrupt my vision. It seems to be a thing of the past.

I'll post a couple pics of the new headlight later...

Sent from my #$%&* ''smart'' phone. Any typos are free of charge.

Noob question: What's an Alley sweeper? I know what they are individually but not combined.

I don't know about in Skinnerfield, but in Portland they look kind of like this.

I'm afraid I'd end up disinvited from the man in blue.

Gravel dirt and grass are where you find it. Good concept.

Actually, we came across a couple of them, and they were cool with it.

Then stay home and rifle through your stamp collection one more time.... we'll eat all the burgers, drink all the beer, run impromptu drag races and wheelie through all the mud puddles.

And at the end of the day when we are drunk, dirty, exhausted and in jail...... we will wonder "Ya think Rich will come bail us out?"

I looked a bit at the google maps for alleys today and sent off a Email to the SFMC to see if they'd share their secret on mapping a good sweeper, I'll let you FF's know when I know what they know....

maybe a good old fashioned paper map of the skinnerburg roads would be in order- you know, for paper recon of the area at a local chicken leg pad?

CALLING OREMike; got any decent large size EUG/SPFLD paper maps?

http://ridewithgps.com/trips/34396

here's a fun map of the event 2010...

http://sang-froidridingclub.com/2011...-been-swepped/

and their bit on the 2011 edition...

anyway, maybe I should be working, or riding sounds like a better idea.

I don't have a good map for an alley sweeper, you might ask the chamber of commence for the biggest city map they've got. Might not want to mention that it's for an alley sweeper tho. One other place that might work for some routing ideas to check out would be to zoom in something like Garmin city navigator. Me I just wander aimlessly and turn down what ever alleys I find.

Ohhhhh. Now I'm way in! I didn't see the drag races, wheelies, po po and jail house on Mort's video! I didn't know about the grub and booze...now I really feel like a silly alley sweeping noob.

Please accept my heartfelt appologies for incinuating that you guys were civil. Now I know the only thing civil is the location.

P.S. I will have to ride cause I used up my stamp collection during the recession

This sounds like too much fun. Are lurker girls from the dry side allowed? I can be on my best (or should that be worst?) behavior!
