I am so sorry the sumo kit didn't work out for you.....I cannot imagine how it would howl on a 950......
How many 690's do you have???
I bet that is a canyon shredder!

Wow. Pretty impressive. I can't believe this is only your second or third batch of beer. Rich color, thick foam and great taste.
Next I have to try those batteries.

Dawn patrol at CC

Riding at CC in the early early AM tomorrow. Right at fork. Look for the ugly white van. Starting to ride by 7AM, maybe back at the van for fuel about 9 or so.

Jet kit for DR650

Hello fellow Utards. Is there anyone out there who is knowledgeable in the carburetor arts and can help me install a Pro-Cycle jet kit? Or point me in the direction of someone/or shop who does that sort of thing? All the usual type of bribes are in play; cash, beer, etc.

True dat!

Apparently the road was set to open Sunday 5/12 but was delayed due to....? It's now rescheduled for 3 pm Thurs 5/16....but the folks I spoke with said no guarantees.....

My neighbor (an FJR guy) told me it was open this morning but it turns out his buddy had to drive back through Henefer in his motorhome.....

My ride was great! Very low water in East Canyon Reservoir to Henefer down to Morgan and looped back up past the reservoir again.....some pretty silly bicycle riders who thought they owned the road.....and the sheep were on the beaches, road and hillsides......pluric woulda loved it.....probably true of most of the inmates in this thread....

Exportation

I assisted in the exportation of a nicely farkled 990 R model from SLC to Reno this weekend. My son Jess flew in Friday PM to pick up the bike along with a few items from the warehouse.

We made a quick test ride up to Guardsman for check out...



And a run to East Canyon. Hmmm, look at this...



With a need to be back at the salt mine on Monday so he packed it up on Sunday & headed west...





Many roads & trails in Nevada & California to be explored.
