Wouldn't say I'm good...but I'm learnin. Been in touch with JDJ for recommendation, so I have a pretty good idea what its needs. This model of carb is OEM on SX 525/625's. Other than jets/needle its pretty much a bolt on.

The USPS and UPS people are bringing us a load of goodies to be ready and waiting at the UPS store in Ogdensburg, probably on Tuesday this week. Anyone else planning a trip there soon?

We've got an IMS tank, cap and Pingel tap for Stephanie's DR, seat cover, side case armor, Cardo G4 radios, lightweight tents, gotta get ready for Ontario Ride 2012.

So I did get out for a short ride today. Saw three other bikes and they were all cruisers.

I just went up the old River road through Burritt's Rapids to Andrewsville and back for a nice little loop. Bike ran really well, just a fun time for sure.



Canal system is looking pretty dead right now, in sharp contrast to the Summer>

I went and got the WR out of storage today. I had put both bikes away before leaving on my business trip 2 weeks ago. But now that I'm back, and with no snow... I plan to keep riding to work at the very least.

I did the same thing a few years ago with my GS400 in Papineau Labelle...three times.
Busted my windshield, bent my bars and almost had a heart attack pulling out of the mud.

Mind you, I was going much faster.

I think it's time to put the liner in my jacket, and change my vented summer gloves for my insulated cold weather gloves.

I thought I was the only one crazy enough to be riding this week but Quantis rolled by my place today on his better half's new Ninja 250.

Are you managing to work or off on sick leave?

I am off until January 30th.
I'm loving every minute.
Work is four letter word after all.

Good to know you're having such a good time. At least your injury didn't happen at the start of the season.

if it would happen at the start of the season, I would have found a way to ride anyway.
I have two feet after all.
As soon as I install the new exhaust on the bike, I'm taking it for a ride in the underground parking.
Cast or no cast.
