Loose bolt along with poor weld on the reinforcement washer welded to the mount.

I just finished up my bike. It started it for the first time in 2 or 3 weeks. It really felt good to take it for a little shake down run though the neighborhood. It's like I filled the front tire with helium.

Just so everyone knows, I'm going to ask that you unload your cars/trucks at the campsite, then move and park in the parking lot. 6 tents and 6 bikes takes up a lot of room. I think it's nice to keep all the bikes in a neat row too, but that's not a concern. Oh, and yes Thad, apparently I have to ask that people don't burn fucking garbage and batteries in my campfires. Thaaaaaanx

Because I work for the government, and therefore know how inept all governmental agencies are, I decided to double check on the fire restriction. This time I called the Pachaug Ranger directly, he said that as far as he knew there were no fire restrictions for this weekend. Now this could mean that he just hasnt gotten the word yet, or it could mean that the person I talked to in Hartford yesterday was wrong. I guess the only option is to play it by ear and see what happens.

Saturday biggish bike/ dirtbike noob ride

I'll be there after work Friday, 5-6pm and I'll be hauling the biggish bike.

Big Bike DropORama :
Some people were talking about doing a little more hardcore than our normal "big bike" ride so that's on my agenda for saturday but we can do whatever people want. For the rougher ride I'm thinking of I'd suggest knobby tires, no panniers, at least a bit of protective wear, and 650cc or smaller bikes.. Bikes like my f650gs or a klr650 are as about as big /least off road oriented as I'd like to bring through some areas. Engine guards/ skid plate would be good too have as well. Let's get out there and break some plastics!!

So, maybe this goes without saying, but I just registered the bike the other day and I've probably only put about 150 miles on it so far.

(tail between legs) Would someone be able to get me close to home if I break it while out there? Hell, even east haddam or hampton would be good, my Dad lives out there.


I just can't get the truck I thought I was going to be able to. ANDDD I dont think the bike will fit in the subaru. And I didn't have time to order a hitch, so trailering is a no-go



Still planning on showing, just a bit concerned that I may not have shaken it down enough yet

That shouldn't be a problem Chris.

I am fucked. Thanks to Razee's forgetting/not/lost/umm/fyyff/FUCKEDUPMYORDER, my new springs are nowhere to be found,
and now the 2 fiddy is apart in the garage, with nothing new to put in it. Stooopid bastids. . . . . .

That's tough. Too bad they don't have a demo bike to lend out.
