The number to call is: 510.473.7247

It's basically a swap meet - but no fee for bringing your stuff.
How bout I'll pay the fee for bringing, and we call it even for selling....

Would be nice to meet up with some locals again :)
Great shot and miss having the Summit Store on my sales route, had that about two decades ago. Good to hear the health is getting good enough to take that KTM out for a spin around Nor Cal. Perfect timing as we have had the mellowest summer I can remember for this area, average temps are perfect for hitting the open road on a motorcycle. Sadly, I am out for this summer and forced to watch on the sidelines with a broken leg and crappy daytime t.v. to kill some brain cells.

At this point, I'm don't know if I'll be riding this weekend, or if so, where. I think a New Idria/Clear Creek run might be on the hot side, though (haven't checked wunderground.com for the forecast, though)
It is looking like perfect weather for a Clear Creek\New Idria run this weekend. Temps should be in the low to mid eighties. If you get further down Highway 25 near the King City Drive, see if you can find the beak to my bike, it fell off about a mile past King City exit on Highway 25. LOL, actually just a picture would be cool of either the beak or the front fender that broke off when I hit the deer would be pretty cool. Boredom is gonna kill me...

Wunderground has stations in the area reporting a forecast of 95-100 this weekend.

Howdy, anyone going to the KTM Rally in Bend

Hi I'm going to the KTM Rally in Bend this September. Are there rides forming from the Bay Area? I'm looking at heading up on the 12th camping then riding into Bend. Take another night to get back.

Some of the crew and friends from Scuderia in SF are riding up. I haven't heard the details yet. I'll be heading up a couple day before the event also.

Thanks a ton for the thoughts of getting well.

Just a bummer that almost two weeks to the hour after buying my new bike I had my first big game strike on a bike and the result was, thankfully minimal damage, a broken leg. The only real solace was the fact the bike never hit asphalt and the long legged rat, yeah I can be petty and vengeful, didn't make it five feet past the point if impact. So in this instance it was Tiger Explorer 1 Deer 0. The situation is made slightly worse by this awesome weather we are having for a Nor Cal summer, supper mellow and just begging to be out there putting on some miles. Having several good forums to read through is definitely a bonus even if it makes me jealous as all hell you guys and gals are all out enjoying some good rides

And to MNB, it looks like I am dead on with my temperatures for the South Counties out of Hollister, should be right around 82 degrees by four this afternoon

It's currently 92 at the entrance to Clear Creek off Coalinga Rd and peak heat of the day hasn't hit yet...

Hmmm. A bit chilly (remember-I'm from SoCal desert, so things warm up at 110). But, in and out of there by now is sound advice. Fellow rider couldn’t make it this weekend anyway. I heard it might cool off next weekend though. So?

Hoping to meet up with someone willing to swap out the small relay or with tool to read fault code.

Alice's, Boulder Creek, Los Gatos all an easy ride.
Steady lights means ABS is normal at that point. Alternate flashing means sync failure or ABS failure.

Check your ABS sensor gap. It's probably not the issue, but it's the one cause for the failure that you can fix easily.
