Sherco X Ride

I saw one of the TTC guys running around on one of these. I must admit I pitched a tent....in my pants!

I would enter on a Yamaha BW200. Bounce right over those rocks!

Man, I wish I had gone down (but it was nice to have lunch with my mom who was in from Indiana). Can't believe how wet it was, but definitely looked cooler than last year.

Booty Time

Just a reminder, I am doing a boot order with Forma. 1 pair is going to DR.Z, by hook or by crook. Pm for price, as this is a limited time "bro" deal. Disclaimer: I have a pair and have been pleased with them as an adventure boot. Spent all day at the TKO hiking all around and puttering on pit bikes and it was like having slippers on. And they have survived the Hickman county splash test as well as at least one torrential down pour. Fall is only a few weeks away.
You can look at the boots here:http://www.formabootsusa.com/product...venture-detail

Anyone got an extra KLR650 (Gen 1) fork top cap? Not exactly sure what happened (something popped after I had screwed it down about 4 turns), but I am in need of one. No one stocks them, and they want $68+shipping for them.

Is the fork tube stripped on the inside? (I am assuming it is the fork cap, not something else.) Maybe call Joe at Cool Springs.

No, fortunately, the cap is softer and only it is screwed up. I took the other cap and actually finished assembling it without any problem, so I only need the cap.

I'll give Joe a call tomorrow, thanks for the reminder.
