She does nothing, useless, just wants to get pampered that stupid cow (GummiKUH).

Walmart tank bag looks pretty decent... (I'm not online much lately, hence the tardy).

I did bump in to Jing today, though, which was quite the surprise for us both, I think

oh for sure. You must be standing beside me for at least 5 mins and I was thinking this guy just keep pushing me over and over and over, what is he looking for. Actually, I looked at you once and didn't realize that was you because of the mustache.
So, did you find the stuff you are looking for today?

Puttering around

Bought some nice used KLR parts off a great guy in Portage yesterday (Thnx Rick!). Spent the morning decarboning and polishing up this nice head. Cam bearing journals are in great shape. Supposedly it came off a low mileage write-off. Got the bottom end too - it's somewhere between a 2000 to 2006 vintage. It was dropped during shipping unfortunately, so RH case is missing a little chunk. Am tempted to buy a RH case and all the odds and sods I need to build up a complete 2nd engine... this head is missing cams - hmmm, hot cams anyone?

My spare cylinder is at the machine shop right now getting bored & honed for the 685 kit. Am hoping to have a little more oomph for highway cruising this next summer.





Edit: I carried on working on the head this afternoon and decarboned the exhaust port and mildly ported it. I'm fairly handy with a Dremel, and actually kind of enjoyed doing this. I left the intake port alone - the stock intake porting is pretty nice actually, and hard to improve on, unlike the exhaust.

Local Rider Passes On

Although Danny Delorme was not a member of ADV he was very well known in Winnipeg bike culture. He fell victom to cancer, was diagnosed on Monday and passed away this weekend. Danny was 57 years young.

He was a local bike builder and a fixture at main street Tim Hortons and Canad Inns Regent show and shines. He would ride with anyone regardles of brand or motorcycle type. He was always willing to offer advice or help on any custom build or bike problem regardless of make or model.

He loved to ride. Danny will be missed by many a rider.

Ride in Peace my friend.

Sorry to hear of this Jim. RIP. Life isn't fair for sure. Hearing things like this, always makes me realize the importance of being grateful for the time granted, and to try to savour each and every day.

So, did you find the stuff you are looking for today?

Honestly I only twigged and looked up when I heard you speaking. I was distracted by all of the shiny stuff. I did get what I needed and left behind most of what I merely wanted (and found most of that used later on for less). It was a good day and I spent far too much money.

I hope that wasn't Teasers that you guys ran into each other at I'm sure there are some shiny, expensive things in that place.

Just ordered the Tourmaster Transition 2 Jacket from Motorcycle superstore (sku:98268)

Anybody with a Tourmaster jacket wanna tell me how theirs fit? It seems like a solid coat. I hope I made a good choice.
