I think it's a hobby for people to ask if your bike is still available and then not respond after that.

I did sell some jeep tires that I have been storing for 5 years for some reason in about 20 minutes though .

I have around 21,000 miles on my Tiger chain that I just changed it wasn't over the stretch limit it just had several stiff links, my KLR chain made it to around 17,000 before I changed it same issue stiff links.

Better now its amazing how having a bunch of metal taken out of your back can make it feel better

I'm going to try going for my first ride since the surgery today to see how I handle that so I may be up for a ride this weekend.

Yeah, my KLR has 14K miles on it and the chain is shot. Links binding up and starting to eat the rear sprocket. Going to buy a good X ring chain and drop one tooth from the front sprocket while I am replacing both front and rear sprockets.

Hmmmmm. Food close by , too. Not my call that's up to Joe but it would be simple. Hotel 8-9 miles away. Opening day of dove season is making it a bit tough on the motel hunting. CircleT is booked with a two -night minimum and a up-charged rate.

Shredded the farm sounds pretty bad ass. If we are doing a RMAR re-enactment I need to order a air filter. And bring 2 gallons of oil. And some waders.

Just had a guy come by and look at the CBR. Said he would have the money Saturday...Who gets money on a Saturday? Another guy from Dallas might be coming down tomorrow night to pick it up, will find out in a bit.

Got another guy from work going with us on this ride on Saturday, he is on a 990 as well...so that is three 990's! Who doesn't want to come ride with 3 990's? People pay just to see more than two 990's in one place at these 'rallies' and you get it for free! Maybe even a 950 SE? Still planning on Loco for lunch if anyone wants to meet there.

Oooh! Cash money. Knock him in the head and keep the bike. Isn't that the preferred Craigslist way?
