I've seen several discussions about the 244, the 270 and some IRC model all being almost identical. Search around, there are a few posts about it.

Anyone know of a good shoe repair shop off the top of their head?
I have a busted eyelet rivet on my right boot that's been bugging me.

I have Not used them for any repairs but the customer service I have received on a pair of Red Wing boots I didn't buy their has been exceptional.

Nick and I are riding west tomorrow. Not sure where or how far, we are staying out west and not returning until Monday afternoon. I am sure we are doing some twisties and dirt.

Anyone want to run out with us just fire a PM...

Hey...who did I see riding a maroon F800 on Meadowbridge Rd. We were saddling back up on our bikes in front of Pad Thai around 2:45

Blooch- let me know when your riding back we might meet up for lunch or the ride back.

Hey Todd, Were you riding on Good Hope Rd on Saturday Afternoon on your way home to Willyburg? Saw 3 Adv type bikes careening down the road. Looked like a guy, girl, and kid all in a tight group.

That was us...I like running Diascund Reservoir-Good Hope-Stage-249-Old River-then Old Church Rd to Mechanicsville Turnpike when I ride into Richmond. With the weather as cool as it was and Nicole had my heated gear and controller, Nick and I needed the twistier roads to stay warm.

Need to look for a men's medium or small heated Gerbing liner or jacket with a controller for Nicole. She has the pants we bought from Chuck last year.

Did a little cleaning and maint on the bike today.. r-n-r the tiny backlight bulb on my speedo that was burnt out and finally hardwired in my GPS to switched bike power.. been running around for > year on rechargeable batteries. pure ass laziness.

During cleanup I happened to notice the tab on my subframe that my left side dirt-bagz frame mounts to is mostly cracked and on the verge of breaking off. It's a wimpy little thing to begin with, I think it's original job was to hold up a turn signal so it's gone above and beyond. Need to weld something better on there or at least some gussets to sturdy it before I do any camping. Guy check your PM's.,
