Trust Fano to derail a perfectly good derail.


Now back to my stuff. While waiting for the Mayan revenge I loaded up the
grandkid and drove around the hood. No Rapture, no comets, no earthquakes, WTF???

GS in the SNOW today

I saw someone on a nice GS riding on the roads in Layton this evening in the full on snow storm! Very hard core, I'm impressed.

Hit me up if it was you. I just moved back to Layton from Cali but have yet to get my GS up here. It likes the warm weather.

... but I was out on the wee-strom, but it's a short commute, and not in Layton... the roads usually don't ice up if its snowing, so corner carefully and don't tail gate!


dirt bike valves done and jd kit in tonight. I need a bolt then i'll fire it up tomorrow. spark plug suggested uber lean, so hopefully riching it a bit will be the bees knees. Not much experience w/ carbs, so this is kinda fun.

Bought a 2 stroke last week kind of on a whim. I like it but not sure it makes the most sense particularly when the 450 can do most of what the 2 stroke can fairly easily.. So seeing if I can sell it, runs great for anyone interested.. Guy selling it to me was so confident he even gave me a 6 month warranty...

I can't remember but I think it was $2800. After that I bought the kick stand, wired up lighting, cleaned it up a little with used but decent plastics off the 450 and I also bought it in Wyoming. Front forks were also revalved with fresh oil other than 40 miles on it last week. As a result, I'm OK getting what I have into it but thought I would try a little higher for now and am in no hurry... In my book I think its worth it versus the others for sale out there right now, but maybe I have that wrong. I guess we'll see and frankly I'm also OK maybe just keeping it too...

Southern snow report:

Road trip results are solid snow from SLC to the four corners area. Farmington, NM is a low spot without full snow cover but once you gain elevation again, snow cover all the way to Cuba, NM. Some of the prairie is windblown snow but most of it is deep, axle deep. Passes like Soldier Summit are packed snow with snowplows unable to keep up, same conditions around Monticello. Lotsa water out there in the open spaces, just looking for the melt.

This will line up to be an interesting spring in the rockies.......

It is the same one. Its worth $2800. Was just asking because he was going to trade for my 03 525exc if no one bought it but obviously someone bought it.
