Sooner or later I'll make one and I'm sure you guys will get some good laughs at my expense, unless of course, I can keep it upright the entire time!


I've been on a few of these rides and if you just "ride your ride" you wont be laughed at to much. Don't worry about speed because the guy in front will be waiting for you at the next turn,and you'll wait for the guy behind you etc. But if you do go down you have to know that every attempt will be made to take a picture . After which assistance will be offered.
But honestly everybody starts somewhere. Every ride I've made here I learned something new,and I met some good people too. I just wanna ride some more rides,and meet more people. Everyone of them have been a memorable experience.

Flash- thanks for the reminder

To lock up the DRZ to a larger immovable object next time we're drinkin' by the fire! Actually, if you can pick that pig up that high I would be awed!!

Those big bikes go about anywhere I do! On the SLAP ride I was really impressed with Money's big BMW. He got thru a washout where my DRZ lost her virginity. I got panniers for it but need to make a bracket for them to load her up for a weekend of fun. Got 800 miles on her with 110 at SLAP so waiting impatiently for another DS ride to get on the schedule..

The wife is going to Denver the last week of June with her girlfriends so I will get clearance from the warden and hope to see you all soon!

Ground clearance and tires could cause you some problems riding with us. We have pretty reasonable fees for pushing, towing and picking up bikes

A nice Fathers Day present to myself

My old '99 KLR will be getting a new motor this weekend.

It is all ready to install with a few upgrades inside



Hopefully I'll get time to put a few miles on it as well. Ken

Is that a hemi?

Looks good Ken...Hope all goes well with the maiden voyage. Is that piston oversized?


The hammer's a nice touch - best tool in the shop.

It is a 685 big bore kit from Schnitz Motorsports. The bottom end is from a 2001 that has about 1200 miles on it. At least I didn't put it together on the kitchen table this time Ken
