Hey Inky... um I mean Fool Hardy just catching up and back tracking and I see you had a nice little outing. I had a TW 200 I bought new in 94, sold it in 2008 I loved that little bike, never failed me. So what up with the KLR?

Does this mean we will see you on the road still? I thought you were out of commission due to other priorities.

Hi Sam
The KLR is making bad sounds. It had some metal shavings in the oil, and I found the balancer adjustment bolt loose. I replaced the front balancer shaft and bearings, and the front balancer and sprocket, which took care of most of the noises. I put another fifty some miles on it and no shavings in the oil, but its making a knocking sound. After I get a few other projects done in the garage I'll tear into it. I'm hoping its the stock piston slapping in a worn out cylinder. A 685 kit would fix that right up :) I'm taking advantage of the down time to get better aquainted with the little TW. How you been?

Well that (685) should put some life back into it for another 50K probably cheaper than a new one.... M/C that is. I am doing honky-dorry sort of speak. I haven't ridden since mid October had to dive into Moya to get some long over-due stuff done kissed a truck on a blind corner with the DRZ at around 30 mph... you know the usual stuff. giving all my money to my daughter to support her adventures around the country in quest of the right med school, etc, etc.. How about you? low profile there bud. I am going to Death Valley end of February can you come out an play for a week?

To everypone in the Boise PNW area I hope all had a wonderful Holiday and I can see some have some really nice gifts that need dirtying up I got a new camera for X-mas a Nikon AW100 pretty cool. It's all I needed



Oh, and a new helmet an Icon-Iink My Arai is about used up


What did Santa bring you? Come on Boise wake up winter bantering should now ensue.

Don't worry Ed, I'm sure it'll still suck in February. I would love to go to Death Valley with you guys, not sure if I can scrape up enough to fix the engine noise, new tires and chain and sprockets before then. I was figuring it would take me all winter to get the bike back together. Good to hear you're still in one piece

I am in total concurrence! I would like to go someplace NOW with some sunshine and above the present temperatures. Alas it's just not in my stars right now. I heard today from SW that there is a lot of snow down in the Owyhee's right now... but that never stopped you before.
