I've done a few sets of those (on the Subbies) myself. If the darn rubber boots wouldn't crack I think they'd go forever (maybe).

Well before we could get started on the CV joints, a tornado (or at least the closest I've ever been to one) ripped through the neighborhood. Lots of downed trees and power is out. Some minor damage to my gutters and I'm gonna have to borrow a chainsaw, but no major damage and thankfully no injuries at least in our neck of the woods. Phew!

Jeebus Tom! Is that your KLR top box under that tree? You might want to put a little locktite on the appropriate fittings with regards to that axle swap.

Sorry that happened to you Tom... I had just left the Brookside Substation on Rt 4 when that went by... scary stuff. I thought the little Prius I was driving was going to fly away. Let me know if you still need the chain saw. Still have a bunch of people out of power.

Good News - nobody was hurt
Bad News - neighbor's tree fell and hit my house


Good News - only minor damage

Bad News - $2000 for 4 treees to be removed and fix damage to others
Good News - I'm not doing the cleanup, so I will not be hurting myself on some useless non-riding activity.
More News - the neighbor has agreed to pay for the cost of removing his tree from our yard
Even more good news - the new CV joints are installed in Misha's car.

I'm glad nobody was hurt, and the damage is minimal.

When are Y'all heading to BYOB?
