The time that you would say "Uggghhhhhh", but still get up and go riding.



So, what time would that be for you?

Ok, is his early enough?

Road ride(s)?

Dirt biking done, now for some lazy girl road ride. My little calorie counter/energy watch said I burned 2865 calories on this mornings little jaunt. At this rate I'll get all petite and frail.....even more delicate than I already am. Waste away to nothin' I tell ya if I'm not careful.
Honey bring home some Bob Bons.


So a road ride anyone?

One day this week (tomorrow or Thurs) I am going to meet by bro for lunch. Either day is still open right now.

Cathy, I should be going to work tonight (I'm currently on call to work in the yard - 1st out), so I'm hopefully game on Thursday. Sorry, but that's the best I can say for now... not being able to plan shit (like sleep and riding) really sucks ass!

Let me know if you want to shoot for Thursday or not.

Honey bring home some Bob Bons. And more Gatorade.
Vicky thanks you for not leaving her husband in the desert to die.

I found a solution for the shatty Husky kickstand. Only $139.


One idea is tight valves?

Is that Bob Buns or Bon Bons or Bobby Bonds? Please don't waste away Ms. Cathy.

Well... my night of "Building America" has come to an end. Unfortunately I'm already 4 times out on the extra board.

Cathy, I'm gonna catch a few winks and I will see where my spot on the board is when I get up. Doesn't look like anything short of a festivus miracle will allow me to ride tomorrow though.

Shsssh, be vewy vewy quiet, we're hunting wabbits

THIS BOARD HAS BEEN WAY TOO QUIET.............

As you can tell, I never found any BON BON's (althought I did learn how to spell it), however in spite of that fact, Pauly and I are going for a little street ride tomorrow. This will be a "Sporty" bike type of ride, but of course any plated bike can come.

We may or may not wait for you, but we will wait at the end of the road so you don't get lost. We're nice that way.

Here's the deal, meet at 0930, that is 9:30 to all you regular watch types. My watch has an extra zero on it

All other ride details will be posted on the TUS ride thread, just click on my siggy at the bottom here, and you're off.

Post up here, or we may get a wild hair and pull out of the meeting place a bit early.

.
I don't know anything about YOUR valves, but they are easy to check and adjust. You have the TE250, right? I have shims in my garage, I can probably coordinate for you to get some without my wife freaking out

What is wrong with your stand? If it is the auto-retract you can't stand (), then you can replace the bolt for ~$15 and make it just a normal stand...

Cafe Husky really should be your friend.

I think I confirmed it was the coolant temperature sensor, a known problem with this bike.

Kick stand sits directly under bike and won't hold it up.

Thanks for the offer of the shims.
