Your absence in the "New and Improved 690 Wunderfest" can only be described as conspicous.

Somebody tell you to stay away?

Also, $4K for a bike with a dead motor???

They are better shape than they look. Just need a stain and polish
which for this incredible introductory price I am unwilling to do.





But wait there's more!!!!

I also have this limited edition Hebo Trials cap. Be still your beating hearts.



Just when you thought it can't get any better.... not Ginzu knifes, not a Sham-wow towel,
(though I do have one if you need it that bad), not double your offer for additional handling costs....

Are you ready? Can you stand it?

A complete Cambridge stainless steel flatware setting for four. First caller in the next
360 days gets it all. With the holidays so close think of how much your loved ones would
cherish this fine collection.

I'm just ghetto enough to want this gear It might look and feel good on my 83 SWM Trials bike or just cruising on the Barrio strip

Not likely.......I just don't have much to say.....my 690 survived the three day Moab trip with Ttwister and GKev without any issues........are they whining again........?

I agree that there's a lot of good parts but Hawg still has that nice one over in Reno......and harcus is convinced the future is in the new 500's.......

The 690 "survived" ?! Did it whine after such punishment?! My XR has not cried after 20 times the mileage and 50 times the roost time... I expect home brew wine (from my own kegs!) or I will mention that your awesome 690 only was up to 2 days of GISkev turmoil. Just a thought... pay up w/ the home brew vino or I'll tell the whole webbernet that your 69999990 wasn't into dragging big stupid machines down cliffs w TrailTwister and I on the third day of Moab doom.

PILO ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!

Snow Report

Bikes are tucked away for the winter.Took the sleds out for the first ride yesterday.Four new sleds and one of them made it all of 2 miles before grenading.Went back to town to get two of last years sleds to try again.Needed to stay on the roads still but in places there was two plus feet of new fluffy stuff. Great way to start the year.

Was it orange?



Sorry about your sled. I hate it when that happens.

My neighbor has a netcam on her roof. Here is the Bear Lake shot near the water so you
know the hills have to have more.

Hmmmm....is there chronic in the air...........?

I think the old saying........discretion being the better part of valor applies to the 690.........

Hey mung, you still considering a bigger bike Baja ride? I'd be up for last week of Feb first week or so of March..........

And Kev..........you could upgrade and go orange pretty easily as of today............

So I don't care about no stinking weather. Nothing like and ole man in a onesie.

However. The Postal Service can't seem to find the front wheel to the Tenere.
