I'll try the Jb weld when I get home. I just ordered up brake pads for it today. Gotta love amazon. I'll be snagging up some new tires for it soon, though that is lower priority as the weather will suck for a little while.

. Have fun.....I guess.

We are going to give it a go today. "Supposed" to be mid 40s and dry. If I only wasn't still feeling the lingering effects of the flu that dropped me this week.

Spent several hours fixing the flat in the front tire of my Sherco. I'd only been shown how to do it twice before but was able to do it all by myself today. New tube and everything! I did have to ask a couple times to make sure I was doing it right but I eventually got it done and it held air the first time! (at least so far) Even found some time afterwards for wheelie practice in the snow.

It was great! I think it may have hit 40. Good practice.

Lots of guys sick lately, and I am still feeling terrible myself. Get over that junk already!!!

I attempted repairing the fork tubes with epoxy. Didn't work. Tried super glue. Didn't work. Gouges are too deep. So I tossed it back together and said screw it let's ride.

Bike needs tires for sure but I did manage to get over a large rock that has been my nemesis for quite some time. I dabbed on the top of it but at least got over it. Should be better come spring time.

You could throw a pair of seal savers on so you don't have to see the damage. Did the exact same thing last year on my first gas gas, used 4 to 6hundred grit sandpraper then applied a two part epoxy from Locktight. Applied three coats in total sanding again in between coats. Didn't look all that great but it stopped leaking. Thru the seal savers on so I didn't have to look at my handiwork.

What else.....went riding.

I think I have a problem. Just can not miss the Sunday ride.

Must of got up to 25F today. Only Handy and I were there. Had a great time and got in almost 4 hours.....well a good 3 1/2.
Just practice turns and some little rocks with a good approach.
Ready for the next ride.

There I was minding my own business.



O Hai, wut r u dooing?




Hey! Hey now, cut that out!






Not that cold, as it turns out, but as soon as the sun went behind the trees, all the liquid froze right up and that was the end of that.
