Went pretty well. Got both bikes done and re-measured and the clearances were good.
I checked my doo earlier and we are doing Chris' right now

Cdn Tire flyer - mc oil & chain lube on sale

Cdn Tire has mc oil & chain lube on sale in todays flyer... not that the Beemer crowd is concerned about ensuring chain lube is always handy - funny, whenever I think of chain lube now I'm reminded of GermanPickle (Tobi's) video - "Where is it?" http://www.advrider.com/forums/showp...postcount=8427

Mrs Backroader and I went to WSL this evening. Had a dog and a visit with Gerald. Apparently Jom Toe arrived shortly after we had left. I gather Jim rode the little Honda.

Yep I rode the S65 to WSL. Gerald was glad to see it again and is hoping to see a few more vintage bikes out next week.

Unexpected visitor

Got a call from Dan, I guy I met years ago at the Gimli RR track. He was on his way from Thompson MB to Pine Bluff WI, near Madison, to hook up with the friends of Peter Egan (from Cycle World). The "Slimy Crud Motorcycle Gang" puts on a rally this weekend.

http://www.slimeycrudrun.com/where/

Dan picked up a nail yesterday and got delayed. Wildwood changed the rear tire on his RT. I offered up my place for a pit stop last night. Great fun shooting the breeze with Dan over supper at Smitty's, then an evening of bench racing and watching the Qatar motogp, along with a few rums...mmm

8am this morning, after breakfast we set air pressures and checked levels, etc.

I lent Dan a balaclava and off he went into the 0C morning. Have a good ride, bud.

Chain oil

Pickle I just watched your video about chain lube. Does that mean "HumVee" is
your "dealer".

Anyone have 3 well nuts and fasteners for the stock '08 KLR windshield that they don't need. There is 4 in total. For some crazy reason I lost 3 of them.

If you have, drop me a PM, phone call or email. Mucho Gracious!
