Firstly, my 2 year old had undies on. So, she wasn't naked.

Second, you'll see someone wearing it while nude next week. You'll wish you never asked.

Since you and Walrus both have one it's pretty much a lose lose situation.

You think?

What happens if BOTH of us wear it while nude? It'll be compounded . . .

I started getting some nerve damage after the trip with Trackhead in the fall and managed to cure most of it. Thought I would put together a FAQ.

I also scored a lot of vibration proof gloves off ebay that managed to get me a bunch free or cheap (though they're not too bad on ebay and amazon). If anyone local is interested let me know...

Yeah, I'm hoping to meet with him tomorrow so I can get a pair before Baja. I hope they fit . . . I have pretty small hands and would like a Medium, but the L might work.



BTW, looks like my TomTom supports Mexico. I'm updating the maps right now and hope that Baja is included. I'll keep you posted. Once I tell you fellas, I'll alert the media. This is big news.

Saturday for those riding from SLC to Yuma (layover in St George); Sunday for those trailering the big bores from SLC to Yuma.

We'll all meet in Yuma Monday morning and cross the border near Mexicali. Most of the fellas will ride for 2 weeks, but I've got young kids (and I run a business) so I'll be gone 8-9 days. I'm going to meet my family in Vegas (in-laws live there) and drive back to SLC with them.

My bro lives in Vegas. He'll have full, unadulterated access to the Love Tractor until I can fly one-way down to Vegas to retrieve it.

I'm not too worried, anyway. Those two donkey dicks couldn't get laid in a morgue.

If only it was true. If I had a donkey dick I wouldn't even care about getting laid. I would just put the
socks back in the drawer where they belong and strut. Kinda like KTM guys once their bikes are on the
trailer. Only I really would be able to back it up.

Getting back to Baja. Ken has got us lollygagging to La Paz. Two of us ride out of SLC Saturday.
Trailer trash make a made dash for the border Sunday and we cross over Monday the 13th.
The rest is up to the open road. Ken does have reservations in La Paz because of there is some
carnival going on and he thought it would help. Two GS 1150s a very clean KTM 990 and the Tenere.

I'm not excited at all. Well okay, I did get the Mexican ins and pesos from the bank today.

Oh, and a new carnival outfit....

I thought that was you but didn't dare ask. Do you have room for such an outfit?

What are other Utards doing for good hard long wearing knobby for moto/ADV style riding that work OK on the street (ie can corner OK, stop OK), but do not necessarily have to be DOT. Basically, are there other options besides the Maxxis Desert IT that also work pretty well in terms of doing a good job but also lasting? Dunlop 606 is definitely out in my book. I have a Bridgestone Gritty ED78 on my bike right now and I know that those work pretty well. Can someone comment on those and/or any other tires that work pretty well?

thanks
