Bags and 12GS tank removal

Sorry Eddy
Your second in line. Finally beat you to a sale. . I need those for my DRZ.

My shocks for the GS are in the mail. Does anyone have a MX video, advise or can actually help me take the fuel tank off my GS? I have heard you do not have to take off the tank to install the front shocks but I need to reroute some of my wires and remove a bolt I dropped into my tank last year. I have a heated garage if that helps.

Ha! I think I beat you both with my PM. He should start taking bids.....

Chuck, I'm here all weekend. I'm putting new braided brakelines on my GS. You are welcome to come down and use my shop/lift. I can show you all about removing the tank, and changing the shocks. I've got Ohlins on mine. You might want to see how the rear reservoir line is routed.

Four wheeling the Grimselpass

Have done this pass many times, but never like this guy. Hope this isn't 205.

He even chases down a motorcycle and passes it at the end (4:00)

I had 20/650 in both eyes with astigmatisms as well. I'm 44 now and wore glasses for 28 years at the time of the surgery. No regrets. I've just now picked up a set of readers for very in close work, my arms are still long enough so I don't need them for reading yet.

BTW, the procedure was very fast, long assembly line type of deal he day of surgery. The lady that did mine had done 20,000 procedures. Most every one was under the laser for a few seconds, I had a full 50sec for each eye. I actually saw smoke coming out of my eyeball, that was somewhat disconcerting. It took me right at 3 months to be fully healed and have 20/20 vision.

A $99 S.P.O.T. would have had help there in a few hours! A week alone in snow!? She must have watched a lot of "Survivor Man". Me and my boy love that show! http://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/12/07/brother-finds-sister-alive-week-after-and-boyfriend-vanished-in-mountains/?intcmp=trending

(I almost just passed out, my last patient, a 24 year old young man had never heard of Pearl Harbor, had never heard the story that I told him regarding the attack in Hawaii and had never heard of Nagasaki or Hiroshima... WTF!? What are they teaching these kids!? How great community organizers are? I guess my daughters kids in 50 years will have never heard of 911..
Remember Pearl Harbor, 3,684 killed or wounded 71 years ago today...

I'm out for riding this weekend, a bunch of out of town family coming over to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary! (amazingly, he still treats her like they have only been married a few months!) Sadly, this is one of their last few.

I did a WTE at City Dogs on Cary. It was pretty good.

That is only like 15 hours one way for you. You should go get it and stop in town to see your old buddy's here in VA on your way there and back. There are 48 hours in the weekend so that still leaves 18 hours for sleeping, eating and getting in trouble.

Personally my weekend is already full.
  • Re-plaster and paint ceiling of bathroom, all the cracked finish coat finally came down Tuesday night. base coat is fine.
  • Buy a dining room table and chairs. The dresser and end table in there now won't do for Christmas dinner.
  • Buy couch, sofa etc so that there is seating when family comes to visit.
  • Move all the random things being stored in the living room and front room(see reference to Dresser and end table above).
  • Oh and leaves, lots of leaves.

Missed You FFs

Well, is an RTE that is comprised of two people still an RTE? Or a date? :-)

Only Blooch and I showed up. Good eats, BTW. And Mike, I have a semi-clean shirt for you. You will be attending next week's festivities? (Especially since you picked this one and bailed. LOL!)
