I wouldn't mind doing a maintenance day if I had my parts....alas, I don't. I need to measure the valve clearances still on the KLR and then get the right shims.

I can help change tires/tubes if anyone needs help.

And Sherry, I'm game for B-fast.

I too would be up for a maintenance day. I need to check the valve clearances on the WR soon.
I could bring the press if there is a need for it.

I'm not able to make a breakfast meetup this weekened.
Have fun and ride safe.

Hey Paul, let me know what size shims you need. I think Brad has some left over from his old "KLR" days.

Looks like breakfast tomorrow (Sunday) is off. With as much snow that fell today Airheadbruce posted he is staying in bed all day. And he was calling all of us wimps.

Maybe we can all get together some other time.

Dillon called me about 9:00 yesterday to tell me it was off....thankfully I would have driven all that way (5 minutes) to find out no one was there.

I ended up spending the day in the garage. Got the KLR buttoned back up. Dillon talked me through a couple things over the phone. Got my CR buttoned up, should be up for sale soon.

Overall a good day of working on bikes.

Sorry I didn't call and let you know that Airheadbruce cancelled for some odd reason.

Thanks Dillon for taking up the slack.....

Jr., glad you have your KLR buttoned back up, an unbuttoned KLR sounds a bit kinky.

Damn nice day today -- great for a SPRING ride. Hope a bunch of somebody's were able to get out and enjoy it. I had to take the horse... The KLX wouldn't start. Not from lack of trying trust me.... Back on the Tender. Was hoping the 50* weather would entice a turn over. No go. However, I am never at a loss for things to ride...

That's a bummer! My driveway is still a sheet of ice...I tried to get out a couple weeks ago and didn't make it 50 yards before going down. At the rate it's melting I should be out in a few days...maybe even able to ride to the motorcycle show at the fairgrounds next week. Wasn't a bad day, I mounted the rear rack on the bike and took care of come details associated with the IMS tank. Good to go as soon as the road is passable.

We got out for a quick ride.

After church, on the ride home, Nanc suggested we take the hack out for a drive!! It took me all of a nanosecond to say "you bet"! I had the instrument cluster pulled off and apart on the workbench, but had it back together and bolted on the Beemer in less than 15 minutes.

The ride went really well. Nanc loved it. AND, as a special treat on the way home, we ran into Dean and his son on their hack. Dean has a 550 Honda matched to a homebrew chassis (better than my Squire's) that he built and with a real coffin mounted on it for a chair. He and his son followed us home and I had a great half hour chat with them.

So Dean, if you are reading this, thanks a bunch for the great time this afternoon! Hope we can drive out together to the Harvest House on Green Bluff for huckleberry icecream and fresh baked pie this spring and summer.
