Will post info on the BBQ date when I get home (in FLA with Mickey Mouse) or maybe another inmate (who happens to work @ WHP) may know the date. Tent space avalible to suitable FF'S/ KLR riders.

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to suggest a northern New England discussion thread. This is great!

I haven’t ridden for close to two months now due to a screwed up arm and hand. The last time I was in the shop wrenching on bikes was January 2nd when I drilled and studded three new knobby tires for the Ural hack. Two days later my problems began. No more riding or wrenching for me. Snow was on the ground and here was a brand new set of studded tires starring me in the face. I couldn’t use any tools so the wheels weren’t coming off the bike and even if I could I wasn’t going to be able go through the bike doing other the service work it needed. BOUNTY HUNTER came to my rescue and not only swapped the tires but rejetted and balanced the carbs, adjusted the clutch, found the source of the front end wobble, and adjusted the drum brakes. He even picked up and returned the bike! Thanks goes out to Rob too for doing some of the excellent service work. The bike was now ready. Thanks to many prescribed exercises and two physical therapy sessions a week I’m feeling better now. Today was a GREAT day for me because I got to ride again! I did 45km of dirt roads and just messed around. Man did that feel GOOD

Glad you're feeling better, Mark, and are able to get out and ride again! Your rig looks like it's in its natural element.

What? He reads this crap?

Sorry, Keith, but that is the most fun bike I've ever ridden. Maybe I should get out more.



Just wish it got better mileage.

Didn't see any of you over at the antique snowmobile show held this weekend at Bear Brook. Started posting some pics over here.



Have a few more to add later.
