Figured I would post this here in case someone on the forum is looking for work or has a good a recommendation.

I am going to redo one of my bathrooms (some light remodel + tile work). If anyone has a good (decent work, reasonable price, trustworthy) recommendation for someone who could do it I'd be interested in it. I'll gut the bathroom myself but I'd prefer to have someone more experienced do the "install" work. It' a small bathroom.
Thanks

This guy and his crew built a garage for me last year. Name is Martin Calvo, 520-272-1514.

Nothing like a recommendation form a complete stranger!! I tried to find a picture of the completed garage in my phone, but all I have is in-between shots. All in all, it was a good experience. Just like any contractor, you have to ensure that what you want is conveyed completely and accurately, and of course don't hesitate to require things to be made right if they aren't.

Let me know if you need anything else.

Thanks, I'll keep it in mind.

Not very common for a DR650 to lock up, and they're easy to work on. Is a new motor really the best option?
Turns out the bike was shifting hard from 3rd to 4th for a little while. Finally, when shifting from 3rd to 4th, it locked up the rear wheel. The stealership looked at it and found a hole in the case. My dad just wants to replace the entire thing and send his back in exchange for the reusable parts. He has the motor sitting in the garage awaiting its replacement. I'll check in the DR thread for some leads. Thanks guys!

Wow, that's pretty catastrophic!! Never heard of a DR having that issue before.

Good luck with the replacement.

Sounds like another 3rd gear blow-up.

He found a replacement motor on ebay and is working out the details on getting it. I'm going to send him that link to check out the 3rd gear blowout thread. Thanks for that! Definitely sounds like it's the same issue.

Does the trip up cascabel road from Benson to San Manuel really take 3 hours as google maps suggest?
Never been on this road and it looked like a decent loop to do tomorrow afternoon but I may not have the time if it really takes 3 hours.
I was expecting it to be a pretty standard dirt road taken at a pace that didn't make 45 miles take 3 hours. I'm riding my tiger 800.
Thanks

Ya, that is probably pretty close to right. It is reasonably high speed (I have been over 100 on a stretch or two), but there are some blind turns on gravel as well, so you have to be careful. I know it took us at least 3 hours to go from Wilcox to Mammoth, so it might be closer to 2 1/2 hours.

I've ridden it numerous times and I don't think it takes three hours, but it always seems to take longer than I think it should - primarily due to reasons mentioned above - lots of twists and turns and blind corners on gravel and you have to be careful. It's kind of a nice ride - worth doing imo, and there's some other great riding out that way.
