I might be ready to go by then, might not. Every time I do anything on the bike I find something else wrong. And Cycle Gear is having a hell of a time installing my tubeless system on the DRZ.

That having been said I have a couple questions. How difficult is Reddington? I just started riding offroad, and my skills, frankly, suck. Also, how remote is reddington? I just got the DRZ, and I am not done going thru it to make sure it's up to my standards, so I can't vouch for it's 100% reliability. I haven't had any issues that make me think it's going to be a problem, but I also wouldn't take the bike on a multi-day trip to Baja yet either.

Are they putting a Neutech Tubliss system on your bike? I've done it. It's not rocket science. Chances are if they are having a hell of a time they are going to fuck something up.

It is, and the issue they're having is that the rim lock hole isn't big enough for the tubliss stem/rim lock. And they won't drill the rim. So I had to go down there and drill it wider myself.

As it turns out I won't be riding this weekend, I ordered a new sprocket, they told me it would be here by today, now they're saying Tuesday. This is ride now on ina, not CG.

Ridenow is the worst dealer on the planet - I know! Had a DRZ400 and after a couple of visits would not let them touch the bike again.

PM me and I will let you know about a couple of really good shops in the same area.

Yep, they should know that going in. States it right on the instructions.

Really sorry to hear that Allyn. I do enjoy trying to keep up with you.

I wish it was more exciting.

Holding a chainsaw out singlehanded while trimming some trees I tore a muscle/tendon in my right fore arm. Apparently it's "tennis elbow". I prefer the term lateral epicondylitis, it sounds more manly.
