The official page link

I have had a great time every time i have been. There are folks from all over, with little bikes and big bikes. I've talked this up to lots of folks on the list, and now i'm letting you know it is time to sign up. I have vacation days off from work, and will sign up my self in the next day or two.

let me know if you have any questions...

Pedro over and out
Thanks for the link to the official page, finally got it to open with your link. I've been trying but failing to open that page for a few days now. (As have several others) Don't know what the deal is but it won't open for me from any other link I have seen.

Having said all that. I've been wanting to do this ride since I missed it last year but it is the same weekend as the Austin MotoGP which I have already signed up to work. I'm tempted to back out of the MotoGP but I probably won't.

How are your repairs going? I saw a DR650 at the dealer the other day and thought it might be yours.. But had Bridgestone tw42 tires.

I installed my new rear tire yesterday. Have an Acerbis 5.8 gallon fuel tank on the way to remedy the two fill ups a day blues.

I did another valve adjustment yesterday with lots of useful information from rustytigwire. I think i had the exhaust valves too tight and that is what was giving me trouble. It ran much better on the interstate today than it was before. I'm going to buy the Acerbis 5.3 on Friday and a seat concepts kit as well.

Is anyone up for a meet and greet on Saturday? The weather looks pretty promising. I've never checked out Draper and it'd be pretty cool to grab a bite and check it out.

I'm planning on going to Draper saturday or sunday to try out the new suspension.

Plus, I have a pneumatic stapler you are welcome to borrow to install your seat concepts cover it you want. I've never had much luck using the hand held staplers.

Saturday, the week was supposed to be crap. I've been wearing 4 layers, none windproof so my commute has been less than pleasant as well.

I have been really worn out and the cold commute hasn't helped. I actually drove my truck today!

Ride to Work in the Cold?

Its ok if you drive now n then. Cold can be brutal.
Since we all have to work (most...some?) some days or other how about this?
We should start a thread where we work so the riders with days off can go by and wave howdy ha ha and inspire one another.
