Read the paper. It's already 25% off (from 06).

Stuff is selling if you are willing to price it for todays market.



I'll be so glad when this remodel is over and I can get back to riding.

today dirty-diesel (trick XR650L) and I (XR400) rode Mineral Fork, then played on the Eastern side of Gaurdsmans Pass, then Wasatch State Park to ridge 157 to Tibble Fork Res... after a beer we (he) ripped down my XR650R's top end to call it a night. Thanks Dirty-Diesel!... need new rings... go figure.

Had an interesting mission today. A friend's ST1300 died in Kamas. Right next to a Chevron, coincidentally.

Anyway, I was not able to get a hold of the guy that had a trailer waiting for me to use to go rescue the ST for a while, so I send a preliminary text to a bunch of FFs to see if anyone had a backup trailer....

Soon, I got flooded with replies of people offering their trailer. Man, I'm glad I know all you FFs! Just wanted to say thanks for the offers. I was able to get a hold the guy that had the trailer after all and ended up not needing to use the backup option(you guys).

Now I am wondering why that ST stalled. The engine was working, just no power transferred to the wheel when the engine was hot. Once cooled, "some" power could be used, but it wasn't enough to ride the bike up the trailer. Never seen anything like it. Guess those Hondas aren't that bullet proof after all! It only has 13k miles, but HondaSuzuki are the guys doing maintenance on it though.

Go to the basics, fuel, compression and spark.
It would check the fuel pressure on the rail, pull a spark plug and check. Compression should be OK on a new bike.
Check STowners.com, the forums can be a good resource.
or I could always say, should have bought a FJR.

Oh, there's nothing wrong with the engine. It rev's just fine. Just no power to the wheel. I'm sure it's a clutch problem.

Unfortunately, this guys is one of those that are not mechanically inclined. So I'll just have to wait for a reply from hondasuzuki instead of tinkering w/ the bike and finding out what happened. Just FYI, hondasuzuki is a dealership that doesn't really have a stellar reputation 'round here. But, on a bike that is still under warranty I guess you have to maintain it through the dealer, so oh well!

Those bastiges at the county have my tax value up 50% over 2006 and didn't take a nickel off when I contested it.....

Riding slab has been my only outlet.......took a Friday afternoon run to Hanna to check out the Big Ugly Grunts.........and they were in kamikaze mode.......


Just realized that I wouldn't want their 85 octane in my tank.....does anybody carry an octane booster for those times they can't get good gas in the back country?
