Dave,

I just replied to your pm. I found a pic of the ramp I'll send you tonight when I get home from work.

Thanks, but I'm passing on the ramp Russ. It's back on the available list.

Hey, no problem Dave. I thought it might be a bit light for an R100GS.

Yesterday I road up to the professor's house in the Tortolita Mountains.

I only know one drunken redneck's story about this place.

Any one have the real story?

Just put a CRF250X and a Kendon three rail, stand-up trailer in the flea market, if anyone is interested.

After my arrival back in Colorado last week, I rolled my TW out of the barn, serviced the carb. and fired it up. Found some time yesterday to go for a ride, a little over fifty miles, seven pavement, the rest was dirt, sand, rock, snow and ice. Climbed up to about 9,800' elv. I forgot how fun and capable the fat tire is.

Yesterdays ride

Does anyone know of a local place that can machine my warped front brake rotor on my Xchallenge? I have access to a lathe but I don't really see a way to chuck it up squarely without making a fixture to utilize the rotor mounting hole pattern. Thanks

Just my opinion, but I wouldn't waste the time to take material off a motorcycle brake disc. They are already thin as all get out so taking off more material just means it will warp again real soon. I would be purchasing a new disc.

With the motorcycle being low mileage and the cost of a new rotor near $160 (limited availability from other sources) I figured it's worth seeing how a machining job works out.
