No problem Brian. I'm trying to call off the hit as I type. Appreciate the offer....although the Tahoe could use a coat of wax...... .

Random Ramblings

It seems we've entered into one of the mystical months with a sacred 5th Thursday. Any thoughts about someplace to meet that is not the RG?

I missed out on the $1600 WR400F on craigslist, did one of you guys snag it? Anybody have a $2000 bike they want to sell for $1500ish?

There is going to be a Tucson Vintage & Classic Bike Show and Swap at the Barrio Brewery on the 25th of this month. Bring out any old bikes you might have (especially you Skip). I'll find a link to the flyer with details and post it here.

Is that the one with the Easyrider Rifle rack?

While I'm waxing the Cheby, could you think you might swing buying me this:

Never been much of a Millwaukee Iron fan, but I'm willing to try anything at least once.

Well, KBB says my YZ is ~$2000. I am selling it for $1500. Alan says it needs new blue plastic before it will sell. Link in my sig.

I saw that WR400 but have to sell stuff first (and want a 4T). I am ready to upgrade from my XR250 to something newer. Anyone wanna loan me an XR400 for a test ride?
A WR250F?
Something else in a 4T with a good suspension and reasonable motor?

Oh, and now I have two people telling me to keep the YZ and just learn to ride it...

So where's the ride this Sunday?

I'm thinking something easy-ish, my body is still recovering from Chiva and my friend Mike (Mr.NoMoto) is probably going to borrow the KLR and come with. He's still a dirt noob, but catching on fast!

I know where there is a 1996? Gas Gas 321 Trials bike going for about $1500ish (not mine)...

So, is Chiva out for you?

I was hoping to do Chiva or something similar but no one is really responding yet...

I am game for something. I might get the DR 350 out and see how she does off road. Otherwise...it's the stable of KTM's. I will be ready to sell either a 450 EXC or 525 EXC after my buddy has made his visit the week of April 19th. However, neither one of them will be $1500, sorry fellas, you want to ride the best...it will cost a little more than 15 bills.

I've got 16 bills on a 450!

Where do you want to take the 350?
I am contemplating paying someone to fix the seals on the 250 before the new brake pads get too coated in oil... I might take the older 250 out (it only surges at <1/2 throttle, and I don't use that range ) this weekend.

Maybe we go over Reddington up the back side of Lemmon. At that camp at the bottom if you go right instead of up the Lemmon Road, you can go up Rice Peak or there are other routes up there I would like to explore. 3 weeks ago there was to much snow to make it to the top, but now I would bet it is getting melted.

Anyone have a friend with a body shop that needs some business? I'm wrapping up my impromptu FL-AZ trip and need to have my tahoe fixed. The only paint work is a hood, so it's easy money on an insurance job.
