Thanks Jeff.

Responded, but figured he was more in your territory.

Timing was off by a day. He would have been in deep poo if it was yesterday........ or, perhaps he's still in deep with the left-overs.

Good job!!!

Good job Jeff, make him EARN his Bike/Pool Hall shot glass! Unfortunately, I think the roads south of us are worse and covered with ice!

Don't listen to him.

It wasn't the CBPH, it was one of it's hanger-ons that did it.

Mea culpa.

Who knew of a dirt/duel sport with a centerstand?

You're a bad ass Tom. And good on everyone who helped him out. This place is always proving itself to be a really great community.

twist the tines so they look like a "lamp plug", and insert it into the harness plug to tie the 2 wires together,
when I got the wrecked bike that ended up as COGZilla it was tricked out like that....

New Boots

Todd ..... you suck! Don't get sun burned .... the first burn of the winter really hurts. Alcohol makes it feel better.

Jeff .... Thanks for all that you do. Great job. I need to talk to you about fixing my headlight on the GS. The adjustment mechanism is broken, one of the swivel balls on the inside broke off. Grrrrrrr Its a sealed housing.

Boots
I need a new pair of boots. The BMW Allarounds have been great boots but they are worn out. I need waterproof and more protection. I have some nice Alpinstar motor cross boots but they don't fit inside some of my pants. I prefer to have the pants over the boots.

Does anyone know anything about Gaerne Balance Oiled Dual Sport Boot? I think I have seen them on a couple inmates but I can't remember who. I hear a lot of good things about them. Any other advise is appreciated.

Waterproof ..... protection ..... under a pant leg ..... comfortable.
