So as not to confuse/arouse Infidel may we call it
the "Male Form" in the future? That might not work either.

He'll still be out rubbing against telephone poles no matter
what you call it.

Yep, I made it about 2 weeks ago, but got busy with work and building a doghouse. I finally got to pull the plug from the mold tonight.

It is still really rough. I have lots of sanding to do before it is ready to make a part.

Did you see this? I know it won't hold natural gas but, we have Pluric for that!

Just as a shameless plug, I just got a thank you package from
Frog's company Two Man Movers. If any of you need moving help,
storage or anything related his company has been great to work with.

I tell our clients to use them and I have not had a single negative comment.

I know, you're thinking "Who are you and what have you done with Pluric?"

Really, he does have a great company and deserves even my praise.

Yo fellow tards. I am looking for a set of aluminum panniers w/ mounts for my 04 R1150GS. Holla if you have the inside track on a nice set for a good price.

Cheers!

You need to PM Harcus. He builds some very impressive durable stuff.

I've got tomorrow (Thurs) free. Anyone want to ride west desert, do some exploration either on adventure (Transalp) or dirtbike (CRFX)?

I'm also looking for Utah rider who may have a 2008 or newer KLR650 (I've ridden the earlier models, want to try out newer one) and/or BMW F650GS (2004 or newer) who is willing to let me take a spin?

Sorry can't help you with riding the bikes but my father and brother both have a F/G 650 GS (07, 10). What I can say is that they both get 65-70 MPG and can easily cruise 90 mph on the freeway with my Ducati. Suspension is the weakest point and I would require a taller seat as the bike is made for SHORT people (I am 5' 10"). Speaking on a KLR related topic, I wouldn't buy another bike with the BST40 carb. All this ethanol is creating all sorts of carb varnishing problems for me. FI is the only option for me in the future.

Yeah screw ethanol and all these green pushing hippie liberals! Although I'm not a big fan of FI. It's just one more expensive electrical thing to break that I don't need to worry about.
