I will ride the TCAT across Canada, the summer of 2015. If you are experienced, of good humor and wish to go, let me know. We have time to plan.

Mobil One ON SALE

For any of you guys using the spendy Mobil One motor oils in your bikes, Advanced Auto Parts has them on sale for $8.99 per quart. I just wiped out the Ashland stores' seven bottles of Racing 4T 10W-40 and saved myself $14.00. I went in to get some windshield washer fluid and figured it was about time to change the oil in the ole' DR and got lucky.

Good luck getting something at the show. My buddy went to the last one but didn't get there very early. He was waiting for 3 hours in the purchase line and only made it about halfway through before giving up. I wonder if it will be any less busy today.

I'd encourage anyone who wants a firearm to grab em up while they can. Guns in the hands of honest americans are the last line of defense against a tyrannical government, and it looks to me like we're headed down that road one small step at a time.

Wish I could have made it to have lunch with you all.

Guns are worthless if there's no ammo around. Prices for ammo per case have doubled and the shelves are bare both locally and online. I did find a source (and ordered 4k) for reloading bullets/primers and will share that source via pm if anyone is interested.

Couple of pics on this cold day. Six inmates, four riders. Two manly enough to not have electrics. Visit to Velocity afterwards. Good RTE!



California Burger. I gotta admit, I chose poorly. The Scotts Addition looked way yummier!



More food porn of food porn.

I'm set on ammo, but the last time I was in Town Police Supply last Friday, they had a pretty good stock of ammo on the shelves. Judging from what I've seen elsewhere, they weren't bending you over on their pricing.

Please don't get this thread moved to CSM. There are people who come to this thread to talk and to get away from politics the economy, etc. While guns, food, cars and a billion other topics do come up here we leave the politics out. Believe it or not, I'm sure not everyone on this thread voted the same way in the last election. We all still manage to get along pretty well because we come together on the things we have in common.

Time to practice better marksmanship and not rely on the pray and spray method I guess. I'm waiting for the 10 year old brick of 22s I have to apprciate and make me rich

And while we'e on the subject, I've ordered several items from on-line suppliers over the last couple of weeks... even tho' items were tagged as being "Out of Stock" and/or being back-ordered. I've ordered stuff anyway and I usually had what I ordered within a couple of days. I think that may be scaring folks away.....

Ditto the name of Richmond VA Chatter. Here of late, Richmond VA Dirt Riders Chatter might be more appropriate.

Just a snide remark because this has been bugging me.

Not dirt: I'd like to ride STREET to WV before end-March. I have yet to eyeball Helvetia, try the Hutte, ... I'm presuming camping one night would be involved. (Hm, is the Hutte open year-round?)

They are, but their winter hours have changed. The Hutte is on a winter schedule: 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. and other hours by reservation. 304-924-6435.

I usually camp in The Meadow across the street, but always called the owner, Eleanor Mailloux (since deceased) and asked permission. Never refused, but recommend calling the Hutte and ask JIC.

Fair enough. I wasn't trying to open a can of worms with that comment. I just hope people exercise what rights they have left. I'm more or less apolitical and don't support the trash on either side so I really didn't see it as an overtly political statement. But I'll keep that kind of talk out of this thread if that's how you all roll.

Not to your standards, no. It's pretty clean right now. All but the hard to get to stuff anyway. The chain, oil and filters are the only things I really keep clean on that bike. I get it as dirty as I can every chance I get so I don't see the point in detailing it. Besides, it is so scuffed up all over that it can't sparkle like yours. I could spend 12 hours detailing it and park it next to yours and be very disappointed! I was thinking of putting all new white plastics on it to fix the blue/white mess the IMS tank created but I decided to spend the money elsewhere for now. I hope putting knobbier tires on the Tiger does not lead it to a similar fate.

Somehow I think I missed something here. Were we commenting on the name of the thread? I've been a bit thick today and missed the context and meaning of a few things.

I ride street too. I just keep it on the DL.Actually the poor WR hasn't been out but for a single short 20 minute ride since Christmas.
