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.
Enough talk about your rectumizer... Trying to wake the Walrus?

[QUOTE=GISkev;18787519]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!)

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......

Nope, that's either Honda or Kawasaki red. Can't go orange on this one. Damn it.

There was a small circlip in the oil just before it went.

Has your PN-40 gone haywire yet? I burned through two of them in two years. Going to return the last one to REI and maybe get a Garmin.

Not yet but I haven't had it long. It was cheap so if it does no big deal.

haywire ^^^

I've had my Garmin Rino 530 Hcx pair for like 5 years, and a strength and weakness is that it has a battery pack that's built into the unit, so free floating AA's won't vibe out. one pack last 3 full days, so I just take one to swap out. Mine looks like its been through a war, electrical tape on the antennae, perma-dust encrusted everywhere. I plugged it into my laptop and it glitched out and died, and garmin is replacing it for $130 since it's out of warranty. I thought that was quite reasonable considering what it'd been through. They retail at $500 per, but i got em online for $350 each, and I'd say they paid themselves off the very first time my grrrrrl took a wrong turn in the winter during twilight far from nowhere.


What?! No advice on welding a windshield?!

You may try some clear strong epoxy, but the epoxy will discolor and weaken with UV exposure.
