Keep us updated with when you are riding with him and if any of us other FF's are invited.
I believe it went down like this......

Kolob Canyons section of Zion National Park

Just south of Cedar City, immediately off of I-15. Worth the 10 minute detour.

I still have a 19" rear tire here, I got it for free, and it's got at least half the tread on it.
Trading for a kick in the sack, since they are so popular now.
Or a wobbly pop.

Or a whatever. High five.

Also, there is a street ride going down today from Bountiful, up Trapper's Loop and presumably back. Starting at Adrenaline Motorsports, which is coincidentally having some big sale.
I guess they didn't get the Memo about work on Sunday. But then, it doesn't sound like work much.
We might ride, but might not, having a case of sore throats around here.

What happened, did everyone get banned on Sunday?

Looking for a recommendation for a front rim job.
Darn thing is egg shaped and it's really getting on my nerves.
I think I can unlace and relace it all, but getting it trued is another matter.
If anyone wants to offer up a suggestion about where to pick up another rim, that would be good too.

I bought my current wheel on ADVrider, but got burned bad (arrived bent like this), so I don't think I am going to buy another used wheel without trying it first. Having said that, if someone knows someone with a used DRZ/KLX front wheel, it's worth a shot. I can at least see it in person and give it a spin, see it it's straight.

Warp 9 is relacing front rims onto both my & Trailtwister's BADBs this week. Their price is VERY reasonable for the work involved.

Call'em!
