And so it goes. Like buyin' snow tires during a winter storm in march... Clears up for the rest of the year on the next day.

I'm on kid duty all weekend, so tomorrow will probably be 60 degrees and sunny.

MGorman, goonie, or any other bike nut on here....

Anyone good at wheel truing and have the stand to do it? I have a couple 26" wheels that need work, one is laced but not trued or dished, and the other just needs touched up. My brother is really good at it and usually does my wheel maintenance but he's in Pennsylvania and I'm not. I haven't trued one for 15 years, and was fairly sucky at it then. I need to learn it a bit better anyway, but I don't have a stand anymore.

I'll pay a regular shop to do it if need be, but I'd like to learn for my own ends.

I can pay with beer, or dirty magazines, or Dick's jokes....name your price.

I'd be more than happy to give you a hand and show you what you need to do, however, there is that 2-hour driving time zone difference between us and I rarely ever get a chance to run south. I won't be free until mid to late Feb. IF things work out.

Shoot me a PM if you don't find anyone


btw, All this talk about Dick's, My wife likes a little some Dickens Cider every now and then...

I X show

The bike show was pretty good. Got to meet John Penton and sit on the Super Tenere. I think the best bike was the Tiger 800 XC. It was on a pedestal ( which was appropriate). Triumph also had one on the floor sans luggage and it sure felt right when in the saddle.

I drove up to Toledo to UT for a visit with my son today. This morning it rained from Lorain to Sandusky even though it was 29 degrees on the thermometer.Left there and it was partly sunny and 34. Get home its gray and 27,that is what is depressing, it snowed everyday this week in some form.I think the only way the groundhog doesn't see his shadow is if they turn off all the tv lights. It doesn't have to be spring in a couple weeks but a few days of sunshine would go along way around this part of Ohio

How were the crowds up there? May mosey up tomorrow if I can get in a good workout in the morning.

Took the 950 out for a short spin then off to the car wash to clean up some residual mess from my last ride then... It only took 22 years but the Transalp finally received a pair of heated grips. Now if I can get the garage cleaned up a bit, all the girls will get a pre-season valve adjustment and tune up.

Triumph display also had the best-looking girls working there! Sorry, no pictures.
It was good to get out on a winter day and see new bikes, but I guess I expected more out of an international show. I've been to the Dealer Expo in Indy, and the V-Twin dealer show in Cincy, and they were much larger.
The guy I rode up with said it was much smaller than in the past.
Still, good to see new and old bikes.

I did it a couple times, ages ago...I remember the concept being easy, but the excecution hard. I'm sure I was overcomplicating it however. I keep meaning to make a truing stand, I have some DIY directions that look easy, but I never get around to it.
