Capitol Reef is pretty darn awesome when it's raining!
We were in Moab monday & tuesday, went for a 'short' ride on Wed, then got into Hanksville late Wed.

Wed. was Tom's birthday!!!
He had a fun & memorable ride for his.. um.. 40th?

I had a day off yesterday and decided to put in my new pump. I agree, the new pump sounds completely different and I take it as a good sign that they updated the part.
$213 plus shipping from service honda is a heck of alot cheaper than breaking down somewhere in Mexico 12 hours from home.

I was up there Fri/Sat/Sun on the 950. All the dirt roads were closed. I tried to sneak in to the Burr Trail the back way from Starr Ranch and ran into this. Not fun on a 950. Would have been cake on the WRR. Ended up doing three days of slab.

Hey Gang,


FOR SALE - in the flea market sub forum under parts:

I have another item that I bought for my 09 wr250r but decided to go another route. These are brand new axle blocks in un-opened OEM packaging from Yamaha genuine GYT-R axle blocks.

Go to the flea market section for more photos and information.

This, my friend, is an awesome picture! Great camera positioning. It looks like some alien landscape.

The Ring was being tested when I spoke to them two weeks ago. I am not sure it was ready for prime time as our clutch is a difficult clutch for them to fit.
If anyone actually has tried one of these or knows they are available, keep me posted.
The conversation i had was a really good one and the guy knew our bike well which is a plus.
jonb,

Good to know!

Thank you
