I'm trying to plan an afternoon ride with Pilo in a week or two if you're interested . . .


Weekdays are kinda hard for me right now. Markets heated up and the Boss actutally
expects me to earn the check.

Would the fiche have details that my manual doesn't have?
Im not a Honda guy, but ive never seen a piston pin retainer clip NOT do damage on the way out of a running motor.
Sometimes even the fiche doesnt show it all in exploded views.
If u bought it used it may have been there all along.
If it were me, which its not, Id check the obvious and if i couldnt find where it came from, Id run it.

Bikini Bike Wash??

Got 1,100 miles worth of bugs on my ride, a cute lass cleaning my bike would be a fine thing. When's the next one hereabouts?

I was told this would be Tenere friendly. I was even getting the bike set up
for no sidebags in case there was some fancy foot work needed.

Only tough stuff is Coal Wash in the Swell, and I'm sure i'll have more fun on my XR400. Pluric told me that he was taking his KLR which i think is probably a better steed.

Pluric, you should ask TT and Harcus what they thought of coal wash...

Edit: Since hick is not coming along, everyone is in charge of their own keys! (Hick I know you're lurking )

Does this ride have open enrollment? I need to meet you guys sometime and i might be able to duck out of some familial obligations next weekend and come, or at least come part way.

You're retired. Technically your time isn't worth shit.

I was going to take the Kler, I've offered it to Todd-Squad because he wisely won't ride
his KTM on slab.

TT and Harcus would tell me it's paved just to see the sleeping Tenrere shots. Can't trust
anybody around here.

Unless you're on a Goldwing like Pluric. Check your PM's


Pluric: That was me and the long lost Soewi (sp?) that made you buy us lunch, cuz you were trying to use free lunch to bribe Ryman to come along. he bailed, so we figured you ought to be true to the concept... but Ry never got lunch. Thanks again by the way, and it's one meal per time i help you pick up the monster. Coal wash could get tiring after awhile. Get on Google Earth and look at the wash that runs SE of Ferron. I'm sure your 350 would be preferable here. truly XR400/KTM 690 terrain.

I assume you mean homo-sapiens? Any other meaning would be derogatory and this thread has
never gone there. Well, there was the one time regarding Walrus and farm animals...but it was
well documented and they were the opposite sex.
