Fargo. Great classic. It was on a few nights ago.... No Country For Old Men is on AMC right now. Filmed in the Big Bend area. Awesome country that BB. We should do a ride there this winter.

Jarod's bringing a front and rear tube, I've got a small tire pump, saw, firestarter, and spare knives on the Dizzer. Steve

No way man. I don't go anywhere without that.

Happy to report the DR is ready to rock. All put back together with a new front shoe. The only point of failure I foresee (as opposed to the dozens I am missing) is the chain. I am bringing along another old chain just in case, but if forced to use that one I would need a chain breaker to pop a couple links off (it's about 2 links too long) so hopefully someone is bringing one along.

See you in the A.M. FF's!

At least the boys from the land of Zee will have the wind at their backs. Have fun going over the Big Mac bridge.

Let me clarifiy that. What I meant was wind at your backs this morning on the way to Cutlerville. What you do in Big Bay stays in Big Bay, right Charlie?

Another toy '91 XR250. A paint job is in order this winter. I figured if the wife doesn't want to ride, I can sell it, assuming I don't get too attached to it.
