PTFE grease looks like KY

Don't go too far from the truck!
I'm not too worried about going far from the truck. Most of my riding is right outta the house.
It would take a L O N G time for the tube to break down if it ever even would. We'll see.


Fuck the Yankees!

CPB and I were just out at Precision giving the Explorer the once over. Loved it. The one thing we picked out that we didn't like was the hoakie Triumph Side Bag system. Looks really vulnerable on a tip over or worse. It seemed like the plastic mounting tabs on the bags would snap right off. You'd hope the side cases would give you some protection. SW Mototech seems to have solved that issue. Nice work Twisted !

Anyone riding tomorrow? Days like this will start to becoming hard to come by.

I went by there today and stopped for a while to check it out. Those guys really are amazing. I wish I was half the rider this guy is:


I think he's about 8.

I also got the KLR pretty well stuck when I slipped into a rut. I had a hell of a time getting it out by myself.


Turned out to be a pretty good day....

That cider is 14% abv, it'll kick your dick in the dirt.. I've heard that twistedShawn is going to have a real fun bike in the near future, color = orange..


I wish my DRZ was ready to ride today. Beautiful weather.. I took the F650 out for a ride to grab the RI/CT tag and I couldn't help but think today could be the last really nice weekend day of the year to go blasting around on trails.. I'm hoping for another winter like last year though.. we shall see...
