Alaska is next summer.

I'm selling my Bandit 1200 and probably going to put some of that money into tweaking the LC4. I'm trying to buy a set of supermoto wheels so that can become my day trip / canyon crashing bike [over the pig V-Strom]. I need to get the vibration under control though - I've very curious to try yours out with that lighter piston. Whenever it makes its way back here, I'd love to get together for a ride.

See you soon for more pizza & beer, perhaps.

That sounds like a great trip. My trip was a good one- we ended up doing less dirt and covering more miles than expected, because it rained a lot, and the dirt roads we rode were pure mud. I'm working on editing down photos so I can put a few up.
We should definitely go for a ride when I get my LC4 back. Would be a great bike to have a supermoto setup for.

Anybody here?

So would anyone else be up for a meet and eat at The Warehouse, in Port Costa? It's a bit of a ride for us folks in the berkeley/oakland area, but that's not such a bad thing. . . . and the place has character, for sure. Maybe sometime next week.

Pretty much any evening works, and there are some fun roads to get out there.

There's a Destination Highways route all the way from Oakland.

Yep, maybe us berkeley/oaklandites can meet at "the wall" (quotes added, since it's no longer a wall) for a ride out there.

Wednesday the 10th at the Warehouse, about 7:00? that work for people?

Cool. I'll bring my new Harmonizer from Grok, for everybody to see and try.

What time at the Wall? 5:30 to bullshit a bit then ride out?
