Thanks for the offer of the shims.
Just bend it back!

I had mine sticking out too far and it wouldn't lock and hold the bike (after my kick-fest while it was on the stand on it's maiden ride with me). I found out the threaded holes aren't so great (the bolt had partly loosened and then stripped the rest of the threads). I ran a short bolt all the way through and it sits fine now. With loctite.

I am not supposed to ship motor oil to the UK with my personal belongings, any interest in buying some discounted Motorex(?) 20W-60? If I decide to not seal them in a bag, in a container, in a box, in a crate and send it anyway. I have 8-10 bottles of it.

Until I can afford to get my suspension done right, I am going to avoid intentionally throwing myself around on the rocks. Have fun guys and gals!

Sunday?

Thinking of a revisit to Devil Mountain - Southwest of Green Valley. A dual sport ride - can pop out in Arivaca - or not.

Can trailer a couple of bikes down to Amado if anyone wants to go.

Can't kick the habit......

After four weeks of throwing the WR around, I was smoking again this week. With new gearing and a few other tweeks I rode from the barn at 2:15 pm today heading for the trails. 7 miles later I was looking at this tread on the side of Poncha Mountain.








Going down the other side is always interesting.




















Pushing across the Continental Divide trail was nice this time of day. Then I arrived at the junction for Greens creek trail.






Greens always looks sooo inviting from the top, but.......





It is tasty ST for 7 more miles.




















Becky, might recognize this piece of tread on the lower section of Greens.


54 miles barn to barn, a little less than half was ST.

It was a long month of kicking the habit, the shakes have backed off and the best time for riding mountain ST is now!
