spotted

lent my xr100 to a buddy of mine in Mahopac. Had it in the bed of my sst pu when I think I spotted you guys in the Shell station off exit 8 (684) around 2.




went back to the trails and met up with some noob mx'ers. fixed one of their bikes for them, and they offered up a ride on their bikes. been a while since i was on a smoker, but it quickly came back... all in all, did just under a 100 miles. it was a great day! [/QUOTE]

Hey, if you can't find the short (besides the one between your ears), why don't you try an auto-resetting circuit breaker?

cleaned up the wiring last night, and will retest as soon as the roads clear off.

So, was anybody ballsy (stupid) enough to ride today? Around here, unless you were wearing something like golf spokes, it was tough just walking this morning.

Yeah, but then he'd be his own box of parts.

Still lousy walking and roads out there. Coming home last night just after dark, ABS went on almost every time I hit the brakes. Very happy I wasn't on a bike.

Walking the dog this morning, it was like ice, doh.

If you don't have the tires studded yet, there's always other ways to enjoy the ice...................
