And yes, getting old is a beech - and - expensive. Sucks.

That seems like pretty good news. I know I would be somewhat relieved. Today was a great day to ride. I know because I got to go outside today for almost five minutes... Desk pilot signing off.

Guy, you know you have an entire nation of folks who have your back, both locally and nationally with the COG. Please don't think you are facing whatever this is alone. I mean that.

Yeah, it was a nice day, except for the winds gusting to 40 mph here in the mountains. I was rocking it all afternoon on my AWD tractor. I'm trying to start one of those "enduro-cross" courses here. So far I've got about a dozen logs to start the log pit. Just need volunteers to come make the split wood pit, and to haul all the rocks for the rockpit section.

You think I'm kidding? I just hope one of you has a dozer I can borrow......

It 'was' a nice day to ride the bike :)

I have to say it's been a pretty nice fall this year.

Wishing you a nice Tuesday! Maybe we should do a RTE this week? (weather permitting that is).

Karl.

Skychs, ask the service guys if they will swap or trade 29mm shims. I have some shims but need sizes different from what I have. I'd rather just trade than buy additional ones. I sent an email a week or two ago and they never answered.
