Since they met more than their goal, Tink should drop them that pic and see if he can be interviewed. That would be so rockin'

Got in for the Mortons Off Road clinic!

I'm impressed with the lack of flooding in VA. Of course, now that I said that, and the rivers are still rising...

Maybe you even want to throw some cash towards that non refundable entry fee I paid...
As a thanks, I'll throw in a bitchin SAM splint, so if this happens to you, you can just stabilize it and ride on like the champ you are.
Procrastinators up!

I keep looking at them as a possibility for a return trip.
Important to note that there is a $500 surcharge if you want to take the bike to Prudhoe Bay

Poor Dorito has suffered intolerably my abuse for the last 60K miles. As Cool Ranch build is nearing 90% complete, Dorito will be hanging up the off-road tack too; yes she'll only be wearing street tires from here on out. But as I ready to mount the next set of tires, I realize there are a few pairs street take-offs that I can burn up. Then I realize that there between the 3-4 sets takeoffs remaining, I may never buy a new tire for the bike...before she goes down the road.

What an odd thought.

BTW, EOD3MC we left something for you in Accokeek! Maryland ABC tag

Thanks RFlagg!

I just wanted to thank you, a while back we had a discussion about changing out the low beam bulb. Mine went out recently and I had the most trouble ever....to the point that I disassembled a fair amount of stuff to get it changed. The damn clip which retains the bulb actually came out from behind the retaining screw. What a pain it was....I guess I shouldn't have said it was so easy as I think I jinxed myself, but this wasn't my first time changing the bulb so I don't know what changed.

Canada here we come!!!!!

Starting the preps on the HP2 for Canada! Found a loose bolt on the skid plate, replaced the front brake switch which was sticky, replaced the license plate bulb, replaced the air filter, cleaned and re-lubing the prefilter for the snorkel. Probably start changing the tires tomorrow.

Enjoy the rally!

Do you still have interest in going to Ecuador to ride this year? Dana are still in the initial planning stages and trying to figure who has interest.
