I wish but not in cards for me this weekend. Should be just about perfect.

My small bores are put up on a trailer. If the Monday thing works out and
is big bore friendly I would consider letting a select few have the honor of
being seen with a Tenere. If not I may pull the forks and send them off to
a suspension guru to be ready for next season.

Holy schmoly.....I took a short cruise today up Immigration and over Big Mountain to Mormon Flats and the Jeremy Ranch road....Bikes all over the side of the road.....careful folks, especially on the north side of Big Mountain. There were a couple of young guys on Ducatis and one of them went down hard...those S curves had iced up and then been sanded, which made them slicker than pure ice.....it was obvious that several bikes had been down on those corners......and the beautiful HD rider wasn't wearing a helmet.....they thought he'd live but not sure if he'll ride again......

A lot of BMW riders replace their forks with KTM items. You might consider that. Also, ACE hardware has orange paint in spray cans. ANother good upgrade. Not sure how to fix your wheels or the fifteen other issues.

I'd need a double steroid injection to keep up with you. Rode the Broad canyon loop on the way to Eureka today. Beautiful! Only patches of white in the shade. That's about 6600 ft so much of CC should be good. Perfect out today.

Too bad Jason at Corporate Suspension is so difficult to track down. He has a primary job and does suspension on the side. He is damn good at suspension if you can deal with the difficulty of tracking him down. If you're interested I can PM you his info.

On a more personal note, I'm walking without crutches (have slight limp but it's getting better), rode my Harley for 30 mins the other day. Life is much better

I went through Skull Valley yesterday and stopped to see Iosepa. Then I headed down through Dugway to Simpson Springs. Nice day for a ride.

It was great out there today. Nice temps only complaint was its a little dusty.

You could keep up. All you have to do is twist your wrist.
