I checked Menards and Lowes and neither of them had them. I found them online, but they get pricing when you have to pay over 5 bucks to ship a couple dollars screws.

coming in late here, on the damned fone so its hard to read all the posts and see if you found them. if its a mik, theres a good chance there is an inch size thread that works well. ive replaced allmost all my mikunis screws with ss inch. good to put just a dab of antisieze on the threads so they dont gall. the socket head caps even work with a 5mm hex key iirc. might be a #6 or#8 screw, i cant recall, just bring one in and get the in. size that looks the same.

Henryville

FYI: Goodfellas restaurant has re-opened on the corner of US31 and IN160 in Henryville, Indiana. The restaurant was destroyed last year by the horrendous tornado. The restaurant offers breafast buffet Friday/Saturday/Sunday. The restaurant offer burgers and pizzas during the week and weekends. It is mostly known for the pizzas; supposedly they are good pizzas but the restaurant doesnt deliver out to my place, so I havent had one-but other people in the area swear by them.
The place could be a good starting point for weekend rides or meet-ups.

WTB- mini bike rolling chassis for big people or go cart rolling chassis (off road) . I have a nice 340cc 11HP honda engine that needs a chassis.

Fly and Ride

Flew up to Minneapolis Tuesday and picked up a 2012 Ural T with 155 miles on it. Left Minneapolis at 2pm Tuesday, rode down the Great River Road to Lacrosse WI where I cut across to Madison. Spent the night at a friends in Madison and left early Wednesday morning for Indy. Cut through middle of IL on highways. Then to Indy through Danville IL.

625 miles 4 states in 27 hours. When I pulled into the driveway at home I was greeted by the 4 yr old boy jumping up and down yelling "MY SIDECAR, MY SIDECAR!!"

Still have the DRZ for me, but now I have a family cycle!
