Paul,

You know me, I'm in. This might be a little easier if we make it a overnighter but can tough it out if everyone would rather do it in a day. No matter what we need to do it before the weather gets hot.


Julio,

The food was great even it the place is little small but I would eat there again. I prefer most mom and pop places to any chain when possible and usually find much better grub.


Bill

No, but you can sure see your managerial skills handle that tire change.

No, but I did think I was watching Benny Hill wearing orange pants!

When I lived in Germany I watched Benny Hill every Sunday evening with my in-laws. I always thought this skit was just brilliant!

Any recommendations for places to buy Sidi boots near Scottsdale/Fountain Hills? I would need to contact them to make sure they carry large sizes.

I'm not sure which to go for, but I'm mulling over these three:
Adventure
On-Road
Crossfire (TA?)

I mostly ride a sport bike, and only go off-roading rarely. I'm not sure if those boots (I've never owned any) will be less comfortable due to the foot / leg angle on in a sport position.

Well, yea! They are gonna be less comfy, but you are gonna get a whole lot-O-protection and after you get used to them they are ok. Make sure you try the Sidi Crossfire TA's best boot going IMOH, and they have a hinged ankle. I have bought boots in Scottsdale at GO!!! Az. and they are ok to work with.

Oh sorry, I thought I included size. I'm not quite sure, gym shoes I'm anywhere from 12-14 US depending on brand. I have a pair of Shimano Cycling shoes, which are a 47 or 48, or maybe even 49, I don't remember off hand. Boot wise I really have no idea.

I don't really care about walking around comfort, just something I can wear all day on the bike. I'll contact GoAz to see if they can help me out.

I know this could very well turn into a "what oil should I use" debate but if you primarily ride street and rarely see any off-road action then I'd stick with a street boot. The mobility and position of an off-road boat is very restricted compared to a street boot. You'll hate them if you're on a street bike.

Rotella 15W40 it is certified by the Japanese oil standard organization for use in wet clutched motorcycles and certified by Caterpillar and Allison in their diesel engines that cost as much as 50 BMW1200GSA motorcycles.

So, maybe Bill has a point that my ride idea for Saturday might be a bit ambitious. I don't think Jack has too many weekends left. Anyone have a better ride idea for Saturday? Maybe something big bike friendly?
