Will you make it back for the LBL200?
Probably, but the DRZ is still down. Parts should be here though. The cam chain has been sitting on my front porch for a week or two, now. hehe

Sandalscout, what mounts? The chain tensioner plate on the right side is missing. Are you seeing something I'm not?

Dang, that's what I get for looking on my phone. I thought that the lower shock mounts were bent upward, didn't even see the chain tensioner problem. Glad you got back on the road easily.

Oh and one question: besides IHF are there girls aloud in the hot tub
DR.Z likes hot tubs...dudes or no dudes!

If ya'll ever have a drought, just give me a ring. Done 4 trips to TN in the last 10 months, all of which have resulted in an abnormal forecast for potential rain.

I'm thinkin' of riding the MS river and OH river levees this weekend. Anyone else with a big DS up for some new sights and gravel?

'll probably run up to lower Illinois for some apples, too. I know a great orchard about 30 miles north of Paducah.

Heavy wall of water fast approaching - guess I'll skip the breakfast run this AM. I don't mind riding in the rain but this will be a heavy front line. Too much lightning.

Yeah, I'm sitting here monitoring weather radar.

I might go since I'm close and the big front won't be here for a couple of hours.

Just because...

Got out today to test the new front suspenaion, quickly found that the rear shock is going to need some work now that the front end is working well. Was planning on riding tomorrow, but I've found a few niggly little things that I've got to get sorted out instead, in order to be ready for LBL this coming weekend.

few little things = front end falling off
