Thank you.

I take it that a lot of Jeepers and bikers don't have to work on Fridays down here in south Florida, lol.

I just got some tires put on the Jeep, so I may head down.

I plan on doing my suspension on my own.

Painting... not so much.

Suspension do on your own and save a few bucks. If for whatever reason you don't want to or can't, one of the guys from that jeep club has a shop called Karnage Motorsports. I've heard good things about it.

If you guys end up going, I am on the Speed Four today. I'll stop by for a few and most likely park in the Jeep area.

I can do all the install work on the suspension ...but i need a little advice on tuning the suspension...as she sits now she is a little bouncy on the highway and wanders a bit when you get to the 80's i want to go to plusher springs and am unsure what shocks to use, and things like rubber bushings or poly.

i ran poly bushings in my 70 bronco and the thing was so fucking bouncy it drove me mad..changing some key bushings to rubber solved the issues.

i also have questions about a shackle flip etc that ive not found anyone to answer.

Roco4x4 is another big shop but it is expensive.

I'm not gonna make it to the Jeep meet tonight. I'm plenty beat up and tired after wrenching on it most of the day.

I was just at the Winwood art walk and saw this GS from a fellow rider. Very nice bike.

I've been seeing a couple of adv bikes during my travels and a 'busa that must live nearby that commutes the same places I do. I figured I would pop my head in and say hello.

I work at Pratt & Beeline in Jupiter and live in PSL so if you see a dark red bug splattered ex500 that's me. I haven't done anything but commute lately.

Subscribing so I don't miss anything interesting.

explore the squares off card sound road..stop in at alabama jacks for a snack..or stop in at the valero station in florida city for some damn good tacos.
ride over to Robert is here for a milkshake... ride the dirt roads back by homestead general airport, or explore the dirt over by sw 217th ave.
go find the nike missle base in the everglades NP or the old aerojet test facility. camp at long pine key or flamingo.
bring a fishing pole..catch some peacock bass or cyclids in the canals..watch out for cottonmouths tho....

D00d, that's easily done in a day... do you have a more challenging ride? that's all within 50 miles if you let me lead the ride
