It will be fine.....I need to grind a little more off the axle and it should go in without a hammer.

I only have one bolt holding the caliper on but it is in there really tight

After having a great meal with questionable company at Brownies today, I had a nice ride home. So nice that I kept going past my turn off and extended my ride time another 60 miles or so. Had to watch out in the shaded area's for some patchy ice on the back roads, but other than that, it was nice to be out.

My heat was on, but I acted cold...

Nice to see everyone today and it was nice to meet you davec83.

Actually the liner in my new kathmandu jacket works pretty good when I used it in 40 degree weather... But I still dig my heated gear because I don't like to be cold.

I'll just go ahead and give you a hint. The gear I wear was started as a snowmobile gear company, and still is number one in that field, and it starts with a K...



Expense arguments to follow.



but especially the last one

Anyone been on the gravel roads around or in the HNF or Yellowood lately? I know our gravel driveway is a sheet of thick ice. Just wanting to know before I head out that way today.

I wandered Yellowood yesterday a few miles. Not too bad. I was on TC Steele Rd. & Crooked Creek Rd. I didn't bother to venture along the road south along the lake due to it wasn't plowed. I was in the 2WD cage and didn't wanna get down in there and not be able to get back out. If I was on the Punkin' Chucker, I woulda tackled it in less than a heartbeat. Pretty much everything that I hit, though, was plowed and fairly decent traction except for maybe a few slick spots in the corners.

Check out serious snow mobile riders, no heated gear and they ride well below zero temps.
I'm slowly learning what works for me without heated gear, pleasantly surprised with the results.

If you fall over or have to wrastle your bike more often, you'll stay warmer.... That works for me anyways :-)
