Thumbs down cheap skate- FAIL

Well.... I can't half ass anything... TWO pages of parts on the way...
Head, and top of the jug are FLAT now- no doubt. Machined and lapped flat.
Weisco Pro-lite and a fresh bore getting served up. Reeds, new intake (cracked) new head, and cylinder studs going in, all the drive gear, bars, grips, bars, levers, bark busters, brakes, plastics, filter, gaskets, tires, tubes.... Might as well get a JD kit coming too at this point.

Oh, and the Rally Raid filter kit for the 690 is installed- MHO

Tried to follow that same credo on the LT1 opti. EPIC FAIL!

I'll order one of them fine pieces of engineering when I come back nice and rested from a M/C trip out west.

I woke up late so I couldn't make it with y'all. I did ride down to 301 and notice it was dusty and deep sand. Now the oil and filters are changed so I should be ready for next time. Maybe after a good rain!

We knocked out 192 miles, and the dust was there, but not as bad as I expected. I think it would have been intolerable for anything more than two bikes, however, cuz we were able to ride side-by-side lots of the time.

For the 192 miles we had a 39 mph moving average -- which included farting around some in the CBD of Carrabelle.

All in all a good ride. BTW, the old bridge just north of N30.14362 W84.87294 can be bypassed on sides cuz of the drought. One could ride right down the center too, if one wants to brave the erroding dirt piles on each end. But being able to get across the branch at that point give access to lots of ANF in the NW.

No Sumatra Gas

Sumatra gas station is still "out of gas". I suspect that the little store is on its last leg. Most of the stock is sold out, it's pretty slim pickins'. And what there is sports the aroma of amonia. (!)

I got me a diet coke and hauled booty.

Sad Maybe THE DEALER needs to roll in there and scoup the place up. If the fuel tanks are still usable the location is SWEET!
