Just got a call from Craig (you met him at the RG) he wants to go to chimney rock Sunday morning with my trials bike.
That's where I will be.
Saturday is free at the moment.

Strike a pose

I will be in Florida, either flying or walking the line with a picket sign that says "GO KTM".

Saturday ride

A couple of us are riding in the morning. We are meeting at the Marsh Station staging area off I-10 East. If you need instructions PM me. This is a medium difficult ride. There is some high speed gasline with jumps, we go by a cool old mine and into a wetlands area and loop back to the cars. About a 2 1/2 hour ride. There are some gnarly little rock climbs which are not for the faint of heart and a nice little water crossing. We are meeting at the staging area at 7:30AM.

everything but the rotor puller, I think, which i'm guessing is the thing that you need...
here's a good video if you're going to DIY http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26oSOrvv_e8

I have tools... but apparently there's the special offset wrench and then the puller, which is nothing more than a bolt that's threaded long enough to push the rotor off or some such. I can make an offset wrench, but I still need to know the size of bolt to get. Just thought someone here in Tucson might have the actual tools. Thanks for the video! That'll be a nice reference.
Thanks!
Chad

How do you compare this ride to chimney rock with the hill climb. Always wanted to ride into this area but this weekend is not going to happen - family man.

I wish you had a GPS.

Completely different type ride. The climbs are short, steeper with rock stair steps. I do have a GPS, 60CSx. My buddy is going to send me the track as we did this 2 months ago. I think this is a neat ride as the area in the wetlands actually reminds me of the Midwest, it is muddy and there are trees.

I had 'em, but recycled them as soon as the doo was done. If you check over on the drink the koolaide forum (www.klr650.net) there's a traveling set of puller & offset wrench. Or you can just call Mike at Eagle Mfg. He's pretty quick about shipping & it's just over the hill in San Diego.

His is the only puller I'd use, btw. The other ones have a reputation for stripping out, can doo bad things to the rotor/flywheel. While you have it apart, check for the deep hole defect on the idler gear shaft (in the generator cover. ) And be sure to count your idler gear washers as you put it back together, there are 4 of them.

Now back to our previously scheduled nap--I've been doing motor home brakes and I think I am suffering from a little sunstroke.

One of the guys in Phx has a set. He has brought them down for tech days. If you search for the last two tech days his name should come up..I can't remember it off hand. If you need the bolt, let me know.

Any hammock users in the Tucson area?

I am VERY interested in buying a hammock for my camping trips. I've looked at Hennesey, Warbonnet, Speer, etc. I've studied the forums on Hammockforums.net.

What I would really like to do is to see a hammock or two before I make a blind purchase.

Anyone in the Tucson area mind showing me their setup?
