Talking Things are looking up

The wife had outpatient surgery Friday which had way better results than we were hoping. She should be fine.

I bought a new chain today. I don't have a chain rivet tool or breaker tool. I was wondering if someone who had the required tools would be willing to help with replacing the chain. I also have plans on obtaining a center stand so the new chain will be maintained a bit better.

That's good news Jeremy. Glad to hear she's going to be okay.


You may check with Chris on a chain break. He went through the same dilemma a couple of years ago I think. Or, as Chris is more likely to do... just sell the bike and buy another one!

If you decide to buy a break... get a good one. Don't waste your money on an el-cheap-o.

I won't swear to it, but I think madstrom has a chain tool of some kind... I'm a long way from having to change mine, so I can't remember what all he has

Side cases

Took a picture at Morton's yesterday of a Suzuki with hand gun boxes as side cases.

I snapped pictures of that same bike when I was there. No room for anything in those things. But they make up for it in comical effect.

Back from the FOJ

at Boyer. Good turnout, some from DE. Temps got down in the mid-30's Friday night, but Sat. eve. turned out decent. Met a lot of new folks around the campfire in the evenings.

Left Madstrom and Tommyhof at High's in Monterey where they wanted to catch breakfast. Twern't hungry so kept on down the road.

A nice w/e.

Two Shays hooked up for a run up the mountain:

I do NOT have a chain break tool. I had a friend come over with a Motion Pro and it snapped two of the parts. It is on my want list though :(

COG FOJ 10 Pictures

Tommy Hof and I rode up Friday a.m. to Boyer for the FOJ 10 event. The weather was spectacular.


We stop in Waynesboro for a break.




The 1st campers. Tommy & Guy


Then a few more showed up.



Tommy and I set out for Helvitia and Holly River State Park. After getting lost a couple of times and riding 200 miles we finally got there and made back to Boyer about 6:00 p.m. Here's a few shots from the day's ride.



The Road to Helvitia:


I could retire here

Helvitia












The road to Holley River State Park:






















We came back through Cass. Where did everybody go??????????






Back at camp for a second night around the Bonfire

I have one of these. I used it on my last chain which was an RK. So far (7000 miles) no problems. You are welcome to use it if you want to come get it. Just PM me and I'll send you my address.

Mickey, here is a link to the article I mentioned about the Balli sisters.

I think I still have this issue if you're interesting in reading it.

MADSTROM, that is one heck of a chain tool. I have nice, but simple, one that just presses out the pins. If that bad ass MF is too hard to figure out you can borrow mine jgiacobbe. I can also bring home an angle grinder from work to knock of the rivets, but I will have to take it back the next day.
