i did this along with some other stuff. i hope to finish up the new cables tomorrow and clean up the wiring and have her back on the road for thursday night.

oh yeah, stators on the DRZ's go about every 15-20,000.... i'm on my 4th one now ( one only lasted two rides)

Post up in this thread next time you guys are coming this way. I haven't been given the all clear by the doctor yet but I've been feeling OK.

Be careful out in lehigh, the sheriff depth has been cracking down big time out there. I got pulled over a couple months ago for just driving my jeep down the road. It was clean with no dirt or mud and the cop started harassing me about trail riding. I almost had to ask for his supervisor to come out.

Will do bro. Glad to hear that you are feeling better.

Thanks for the heads up about the coppers. Thankfully no problems from the constabulary on this trip.

Fran, Rob, and I all got some riding in yesterday. it was great riding weather other than the hour or so we got rained on. we just rode the Levees to Clewiston and then rode out to Dinner Island for some trail riding. was a great day that we finished off with some great steaks and drinks.


It's raining on us here a little and it continues for about another 10-20 miles.


stopping for a break


the bikes... have i ever mentioned how much i like mine? that bike has taken me on some great trips and i have had some fun on her.


my ugly mug at the Tiki Bar






Trails at Dinner Island


we drew a crowd.. it's hard to tell but they are all staring at us. check out the super white one in the middle.


end of the ride, except for my 20+ mile ride home. it was good time.
