That is less than 5 min from our house. Karen's Uncle and another local man are responsible for getting the marker placed on Hwy 93 to mark "Milligan - Ohio's Icebox".

It got down to 9 here last night and is currently 14 deg.

I did like it but just wasn't riding it much. I really am enjoying the NCX though.

Let there be heat!

Flushed my heater core in the truck today with compressed air, was nasty but didn't fix it, turned out to be a broken therostat, not just worn out or stuck, but broken, (damn ford) there is a little round plate and spring riveted to the back of the thermostat, rivet broke causing the plate to block the hole $18 fix, All better now!


Now to find a mechanic or high cliff to fix my bike. I've had it with that damn thing!

you're giving up way too early...you need to fix it, ride it half a season, hole out the piston, fix it again, ride it not even half a season then have it refuse to start for you for no reason whatsoever only two weeks after you last rode it...

only then can you consider giving up on it

If it wasn't my only bike then it wouldn't bother me nearly as bad, but when I miss most of last season and break down every damn ride, this shit is for the birds.

When you are ready for something different, I may know of a KLR650 just down that road from you that could come up for sale sometime.
