Pulled the fuel injectors of of my GSA and shipped them off for service.

Anyone have a TB Synchronizer? I can ride to your garage and pay you with some PBR or something?

Washed the KTM & while prepping it to ride ONF tomorrow I found out I need front and rear wheel bearings! damn KTMs

I replaced both front & rear wheel bearings about 1000 miles ago.

Guess I'll ride the XRR tomorrow.

next time you pick up a set of wheel bearings pop the seals Off and repack them with some decent grease. they seem to come with barely any grease and the grease That's in them suckS.

Yep, I read about that.

BTW... in case somebody is in need of wheel bearings... Pivot Works offers a lifetime replacement on their bearing kits. I'll try them out being the OE KTM bearings didn't last long.

Went out, trudged through the snow to my enclosed trailer, opened it and stared longingly at my F650GS. Spring thaw soon please?

Went to Cousin Vinnie's, Leesburg, FL yesterday. Some incredible chicken wings, and everything on the menu I have tried is great. Nearly all backroads between here and there with some scenic places to stop. Been there several times recently, its also close to a shooting range.

Made it over to the Corbin store this morning just to look at a seat for the Concours...discount during bike week. Now I have a Corbin trio. Went for the Mercedes grade leather...WOW what a difference!!! They installed the seat and are shipping the stock seat back to my mountain home...
