Engine light

What a bummer. First real ride of the season on my tiger xc and sure enough the engine light stays on! Full of oil and charged battery. Seems to be running ok but I guess I gotta bring it all the way to Blackfoot now. Only 1600 km but I guess just too many sensors....
:(

I thought this picture was of "the governor" from THE WALKING DEAD. Before the eye patch of course.
Fun looking ride by the way.

The snow is an excuse for......

....doing maintenance. I changed tires today so I am ready to go south into the US Rockies on May 23 when I get back from a trip to the coast (not a MC trip this time). David

As we all know, next weekend is May long... It's very traditional for myself to go for a bit of a tour in either McLean or the Waiporous area to have a gander at all the dudes who got their mom's SUV buried to the windows, the drunk people who burned their campsites down the previous night and the general carnage that the forestry officers and RCMP have to deal with... LOL!

Either Saturday or Sunday I will be heading out somewhere, but not both days. I promised to go 4X4'ing with some friends on the day I'm not riding. I'll more than likely truck it out there with a 450 as I'm still waiting on spokes to get my 990's rear wheel laced up. Depending on who's up for what day will decide when I go really... What ever is easiest for the most people, ;)

My May Long weekend was cancelled, most recently due to a shut down at work.
I should be up for future tours.

For a stark white Canadian the choice is easy to make.

Dito! Ice on the MacKenzie broke yesterday so riding time very soon. Safe trip and take care of that bike.

The mx boot is not very different from an air cast. Maybe a bit lower on the leg.

Maybe I can't be so smug about Honda reliability to KTM riders. My starter is pooched and I had to bump start it for a short ride yesterday.
