Hi itnanti,

With a good crew and a few days we could have it in kickass condition.
I'm interested. Does it start with "V" and end in something a pirate would make you walk?

Itnanti,
Welcome, I ride Sequoia often, PM me some dates that work for you.
You can also watch the Sequoia thread, always something going on over there.

How've you been?

Andrew,
What's up man, so you are gonna start riding again! Cool.

Come on up to Sequoia, I ride up there about twice a month. There are some great trails.

If you do decide to off the 950, Im interested....Hate to see it collecting dust.

I blame these damn dual sport folding mirrors. It's hard to tell what your ktm is all about with the dang mirror always jumping around blurring your image!

With you out of the area I've had to step up an volunteer for habitat for humanity and help frame houses.

In all seriousness doing good. Not riding much but keeping keeping the fire burning. Just got back from a 640/ish mile loop on the xc. Twisty roads mostly.

Any bike Monti gets has a great home. I don't know anyone else who works on their bikes more!

I hope you don't sell it and get into riding more again. I'm trying to do just that. Blue mountain hell I think sucked it outa me. I should have waited for my collarbone to heal more I think.

If I ever do baja I'll stop by.

Perry,
I'm so out of practice. I need to get back in the saddle. The Valkyrie goes into the shop on Monday. The 950 after that. Poor thing have just been sitting. I'd like to take you up on a Sierra ride one of these days, I miss single tracks.
Still not sure I have a home for the 950. It worked for me with you guys, but here it's lonely. I'll give it a season and decide. Monti says they last forever, this one only has 10k and new knobs. Almost a sin, knobs have been new for 2 years.

Lane,
I'm glad you're back on your bike, come on down. Baja is a love of mine. Planning an October trip.

Andrew

You will have to let me know when you take it out on some dirt, glad to see a bike above 400lbs. Btw how much was your carb sync tool? Was it worth the money? I tried to build one last month and the bike seems to run better after the adjustment.

Oh its already had both side cases filled to busting with groceries twice. It'll carry 4 gallons of milk and still has tons or room, (and grins) for the ride home.

But if you wanna use it yer welcome to putt over and tinker with it.

Roughly $65 including tax and shipping. It works or appears to sure is easy to use. Air box lid off, drop it in one velocity stack, measure, drop in other velocity stack, measure and adjust as necesary. Next time I see my brother in law I am going to drag it down for him to play with it vs. his mercury manometer to see how precise it really is. For my needs it appears to work.
