So I'm starting to get skeptical and think perhaps BMW has just gotten cheap on their qualifying course and has just gone and borrowed a mountain bike course. Or, they could just be leaking photos of a MC on a MTB course to scare everyone. Third option is they are just that freakin nuts and have a pretty well written liability waiver.

My Nuvi 500 works fine with gloves on.

Ride Sat Morning 14SEP

Hey guys,

Im trying to get a few people together for another ride this sat morning. I know one person who is 80-90% commited to going besides myself. It would be great if we could get another local, since the two of us are still pretty new to the area. I am going to try and ride from memory where ddlewis took me last weekend, unless someone would like to volunteer to be a "guide".

Thanks gain to ddlewis for showing me around last weekend, hopefully your side cover comes in today so we can ride again soon.

Let me know.

Klim

I'd use something like QuikSteel epoxy putty, or similar product, for that repair.

Comes in a stick you cut off a slug, knead it with your fingers to mix it, then apply..... inside and out.

You will need to make sure ALL oil is removed from the cracks and crevices before application. Also helps to clean/rough up the surfaces with a wire brush..... thinking Dremel type tool.

I saw a fella put together the entire bottom end of a KLR engine after destroying it in a rock garden on a DS ride up in PA several years ago. Rode the thing back home to VT.

Needless to say, I carry a stick of it with me all the time.

That's frustrating the cover has not come in yet. Since you have a little bit of time I would check around to see if there is a fabrication shop or steel shop around that could weld up that hole. It would be stronger than JB weld or quiksteel and more permanent. Especially since you are riding to Tenn in week or so. The only issue with that is finding a place that would weld it together fast and affordably. Just a thought.

I remember years ago seeing a welding stick called Aladdin that used a torch. In a magazine they used it to fill a hole like that.

How about the US Air Force? I hear that they are projected to be short by over 700 pilots by 2015 due to the repetitive deployments during 2005-2011 in Iraq/Afghanistan. It's cyclical...it would be a great time to jump in as a young man, do 25 years and retire as a full bird in your early 50's. If he only did 6 years and left as a Captain, is would look great on his CV.

Do they let you fly if your near sighted. If he could fly he would go for anything. A scout Cessna.

You guy have not been riding Mud road. It was dry last Saturday. Well at least the long sections of red clay. The big puddles are still there.
