Seat Reupholstery

Wanted to share this with you fellow inmates. If you need seats repaired, recovered, cutdown, or your in need of new padding. PM me and I can get you the info, for a great reupholster.
I had to have the foam trimmed in the saddle, on my XR650L
Here is the seat I had reworked. The seat was cut down 2" in the saddle, and tapered to the rear. The original seat cover was reused. I am very happy with the workmanship.

My apologies if I'm busting in and interrupting something I shouldn't, But I'm a long time lurker, and am just about to purchase my first Street bike. I was wondering if anyone here would know of a website, or group of people that would be good to ride with for fun.

Not really looking for a group of highway stunters and the like, preferably just some laid back people open to, and don't mind helping teach guys new to the sport. If theres any groups like that here,or anyone knows of sites,etc. of the like similar, I'd appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

Thanks guys.

You just described most of the guys on here. Just keep watching this thread and the other Mississippi related threads and you will see rides posted and where and when to meet.

First off, no apologies necessary and welcome to the asylum!

I'm going to assume since you posted in the Jackson forum, you're in the Jackson area. So I'll let them fill you in on rides, get togethers, etc...

What kind of bike are you looking at?

Ditto what Carabnsol just said. Also, jump in and join the local tag game. It's a great way to start getting involved.
Welcome!

Hopefully you're referring to the latter description.

Washing machine

Anyone need a good washing machine? It is a Frigidair and works with no problems. Our dryer went out and Trophywife decided she needed to buy a new set. Anyway, if anyone needs one let me know and we'll work something out.
