Another solid effort Jason. I must have been just a day ahead of you guys at Featherville & Dollarhide. No hint of closures then, but the smoke was crazy thick.

What a great report! You have a great eye for pics. That picture of your wife and your bike wedged in the rock should be published in a magazine.

BMW Maintenance

I just found out that the guy that has been doing my BMW stuff is not doing it anymore - I'm really not fond of Big Twin - isn't there a gent that does BMW stuff out of his garage here in Boise that is supposed to be pretty good??

I'd sure appreciate some hints.

Thanx

Tracked one down and it did the trick no problem. Thanks for the response!

Back in the Saddle!

Well, it appears that all the repairs are done (sans 1 bolt for the bar end) on my bike. Anyone ready to ride? As I already mentioned a while back I plan on using 8th street as my "Road to recovery" ride but once at the top I'll go anywhere.

How about this Friday night or Saturday day?

Note: This isn't supposed to be a death march but just a fun spin around the Boise foothills so I can get my riding groove back.

Heading to Copper Basin this weekend for some dirt biking. Anyone else going that direction? If so, may see you up there.

Question Homemade Hall Sensor Do Dad I Could Borrow?

Howdy--

I just installed a new Hall Sensor in my 2002 1150 GSA, and now the engine won't start, which is leading me to believe that I need to time the engine. This (http://advwisdom.hogranch.com/Wisdom...ll_sensors.pdf) outlines a way to build your own Hall Sensor timing device, but it seems like a ton of running around and work to build it. Therefore, I thought that I'd put a shout out to the local Boise ADV community to see if anyone had a Hall Sensor timing unit--and if so, if I could borrow it to time my Hall Sensor?

Thanks everyone.

Mike

If I even knew what a Hall sensor was.... Good luck!

Today has been quite the emotional day for me. Some of you that follow my thread have probably been wondering what some of the cryptic posts have meant and why my riding and writing has suffered during the height of riding season. I'm finally ready to go public with my new business venture.

Today, I quit my job in aviation and am now full steam ahead with the Backcountry Pursuit. The Backcountry Pursuit will be Boise's first and only outdoor adventure gear consignment shop. Think "used REI." We will take people's items in on consignment and offer them for sale. We are looking for any type of equipment that falls under the umbrella of outdoor/backcountry adventure gear. Backpacking, hiking, trail running, camping, kayaking, rafting, skiing, snowboarding, telemarking, climbing, mountain and road biking. Any and all equipment, apparel, and soft goods associated with these sports is exactly what we want.

In addition to the above sports, I am happy to announce here that I will be taking anything associated with adventure motorcycling and motocross. Helmets, Jackets, Pants, gloves, boots, goggles, protective gear, tank bags, GPS units and mounts, and any other thing you may need to take your motorcycle into the backcountry.

Start going through your piles of gear in the garage and closet. Figure out what you want to make some money on, CLEAN IT really well, and bring it down to the store when we open.

I am hoping to ink the deal for the property on Tuesday, so I'll have an address. The timeline is as follows; September 24th to October 11th I will be at the store to take consignments before our Grand Opening. Grand Opening is Friday, October 12th. I'll be offering a 10% discount on my consignment rate for any items consigned with me before the Grand Opening.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to call me on my cell at 208-995-7060. Help a local rider get an awesome business off the ground!!! Make some money on that stuff you don't use anymore and have the opportunity to get some great deals on some stuff you've always wanted. This is great way for you to "Trade up". Sell your current riding jacket and put your money towards that Klim gear you've been lusting after.

I hope to see you all in the shop!!!

Ooh!

I was wondering what was going on, I thought maybe you were laid off!

So did you sell your too big for you klim pants already or they the first item to go on a rack?

Good Luck!
