If you have the map, I have the bikes and the Sherpa does need some easy highway break-in miles that hauling my bulk around won't give it. Next weekend may not work as I have some relatives visiting....

The latest google images (probably a year old) show some stuff remaining - I suspect there is much less to see than there was 10 years ago.



Have you been watching this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Closed_for_the_Season_(film) ?

OK - definitely much less to see now - the ball room burned down in 2002 and the destruction of the rest began in 2009 http://sbno.illicitohio.com/chippewa/demolition1.html Either the google photo is 2 years old or they took (maybe are still taking) their sweet time with the demolition.

I'm planning on it. I'm just there for the free lunch.

I'll be helping with photos in the caveman section.

On another topic. I need to put some new break pads on the 950 and all the pads I'm seeing listed are supposedly for street application. Sinerated, carbon, what is best for wet muddy off road application?

Sintered.

I saw you Sunday on I-70 with the 950 in the back. I was heading back from finishing the preride.

Thanks, now X or H, semimetalic?

Was that you with the wheelsport bike jacked up on the rear of the SUV? Yeah, I was glad I trailered down since the new sprocket allowed me to spin the rear tire and destroy another tube. I didn't have a spare but Smiling john was able to fit a 17 in there that lasted long enough to get the beast off the trail and onto the road. From there I borrowed his klr to ride back to the truck, load his bike, head back unload the klr and load the ktm with a flat rear. So I was packing home in shame of being an unprepared rider. Up to that point the bike was awsome and ate up trail at speeds I have never accomplished before.

Evidence of how fast I was going

Rimlock to be installed soon with new tube.

OK, not entirely Bike related, but does anyone know where a person can get a high lift transmission jack (floor model). Need to be able to life 75" or so. I am looking for a middle quality/price tool. Don't need to do heavy machinery cases or anything like that. Just plain old Hondas. If anybody has a lead on something, please PM me if you'd like.

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

The same thing happened on my 690. I found an epoxy for plastic made by loktite. It worked great for the repair.
