I'm back ya'll

Ok, I'm back from Afghanistan! I got my old ugly KLR running (on year old gas) new tires, chain, clutch cable etc. I be itching to ride the thing! I also built a dune buggy over the winter with my son.

All the roadbase is awesome...

All the rest for the terra firma is slop for the first four inches. (there is a joke in there somewhere)

Cold, but worth the ride.

Good for you!

The buggy seems to follow along the lines of the KLR.

Go MSH!!!! I rode the pony express and some other stuff in yesterdays warmness... about 5 hours worth anyway.

On a side note, we should put together a google spreadsheet for specialty tools to loan. For example, I have a scotts damper arm puller that anyone can borrow. I'm not talking normal tools. Any interest? The catch is you could require a deposit like a 6 pack or something.

That's what I figured. I was looking for a big boy adventure bike, but I'll have to wait till this summer . The old crusty KLR will have to haul my ass off road till then. How is that S-dime treating you?

Been dry docked in the garage with all this winter bliss going on. This weekend looks
promising to get it out. Maybe do the run MSH did. The last ride the wheels came
back round, that's a good sign.
