help?

Anybody want to rescue an inmate, and make $100 along the way? Our jeep broke in highland, we are about forty miles from home in woods cross, and I have three passengers, danger girl and two kids. Tow truck can't take us all, and our splendid coverage will only cover six miles, thanks Geico. Call me at fgjdiendj if you are up for it. The jeep will drive onto a trailer well enough, but with a missing control arm, its not so good on the road. We havent got any family here to call, and almost no friends, advrider is the most of it since we moved here this winter.

Scrub that, tow truck is here. Fast this time, usually more than an hour.

Pissed

While all you Bitches were vacationing or breaking down on the side of the road, I was busy xplorin Southern Utah. Couldn't have asked for a couple of nicer days, temps in the 70's, and blue skies.

Saturday did a 90 mile loop from La Verkin, which was a UN free zone back in the 90's. Hit some sandy trails heading down to the Red Cliffs nature preserve.


Hit the "honeymoon trail" used by Mormon pioneer couples heading from Arizona to St. George to get married in the temple from 1872 to 1900. Didnt take any pics here. Dry and dusty, but damn fun.



Then headed up towards the Pine Valley Mountain for some trees and a change of scenery. Beautiful place.


Even GoPro'd a pic of myself. Apparently hot red Italian exotics dont break down like those Jap bikes, go figure.

Let me put about 35000 miles of WOT on yer Ape and see if she's still in the lovin' mood! How many miles on that priss? I wish I could have joined you on your ride! I want your gpx if you got 'em (I'll trade!)

Everything seem's good on my BRP , but I tore her open just to check things... Pluric's KLX is 0 for 2 when it's been out w/ me... I had a KLX 650 that I thought was too top heavy after 5 min on a BRP, so I switched. That's why I won't sit on an orange one or similar ilk.

Owww. At least my fix was free. All I can figure is when I traded the pumper carb out for the stocker
you have to unbolt the rectifier to make room. It must have pulled the wiring out at that time.

I'm beginning to think Kev is a saboteur. It is awful coincidental it only has problems on his rides.

Too damn funny.

Gotta hand it to you Kev, you're the only guy around here who primarily rides one bike day in, and day out. That XR650 has treated you well.

Oh she is a high maintenance broad, and will never make it to 35K, but damn is she a fun ride


No GPX files for this ride, but can give names locations or coordinates of starting points, not too hard to find.

windshield weld?

Anyone aware of a way to 'weld' a cracked windshield? Super glue held for a bit, but it's not working out. Does anyone in town do that sort of thing?

I'm not sure if moving to heber was the right move. The commute to the office sucks.

Where is this cave trail? I've been up there a number of times but not really off the beaten path since I have a GSA. Is the trail big bore friendly? Can you give me directions?

You little %*#@+ Of course I mean that in a non jealous context. Man that does look fun.

Just picked my boats up. Beckstrand Marine put a new motor in one last year and it had an
oil leak. Stood behind it 100% even though the warranty period was over. Didn't even have to ask.
I wish more dealers treated customers so well.

Now if I can just keep the daughter from repeating this......
