the radiator looks like a piece of work, but apparently couldn't be used on bikes due to a flaw somewhere... i could find one but apparently it should be suitable for a dyi death ray water heater.



Being in the giving spirit, I got a great deal on a bit a bling for my baby while i was in warp's shop!



ooh. I'll be able crash on my right side with confidence now! spring loaded swivel thingy w/ grippy ninja spikes!

Haven't ridden for 2.5 years, nice to be back. KTM is gone, living the cheap life and riding the old XR, which works down here fine, and gets me to work.

Endless riding literally right out my door. No slab.

Nice pic, wish I was there instead of this freezing inversion that's enveloping me right now.

Tried to escape yesterday. Front flat caused by past damage.





Called Woody's Wheels. They are going to be closed for the Holidays so I'm going
to have them put a new Excel on it the first of the year. It's been straightened three
times now. It has nothing to do with this type of use.....

That ding has the look of "rock kissing" or maybe "concrete kissing". Hmmm...?

Switching to an Excel means you loose the tubeless attribute...correct?
