I just shimmed mine. I bought a full set of 7.48mm shims. Wish I knew, we could have traded some maybe.

Hope you get it worked out.

If he's talking KLR shims, yours and mine (9.48) wouldn't help him. They are about the size of a quarter! and expensive!


See y'all tomorrow!

Yep, KLR shims are 29mm. I am haphazardly slinging crap into my old Jeep. Maybe I'll show up with half of the stuff I need. It still wants to cut out when idling, I am hoping it's just old gas and some fresh juice will fix her up.

Is there any kind of game plan for tomorrow?? If it's not raining to bad in the morning I'm going to try to head up there for a little bit at least.

Bummed --> Kinda

Well, I'm not there for a variety of reasons. I relayed on to Troy.
Anyway, yesterday I was quite bummed. Today I'm still a little disappointed but the weather has me less so. Looks like the shitty weather has arrived for the weekend. Hope y'all are careful and (somehow) stay dry. Pitch the tent on high-ground. Expecting a lot of rain. Looking forward to some of the stories!

Good riding today, 14 riders here.

It is raining, hoping it will clear up some for Saturday

Well, it's dry this morning in McKenzie at 07:10, just 40 miles west of LBL.

It looks like it might still be drizzling in LBL. Looking at radar, it should blow over by 07:45 or 8:00am.

Hope you guys have a fun day of riding. I'm heading to work.

Had a great time riding with you guys today. Wish I'd been able to stay the whole day though, the weather was just getting good when I had to go. Hope the rest of the weekend is just as good.

Made it home and unpacked already. What a great weekend! Troy, 2fast, and SandalScout planned and executed a fantastic ride 'n camp. The weather never slowed us down. The roads, well..... slowed some of us down. LOL There's never a dull moment with the ADV crew.

I'll write more later. If I get me horizontal, I'm gonna sleep for hours.
