Traffic congestion is good excuse for filtering.

Light the thread up dfc......dazzle us with your insight and wit. Wow us with revelations of a satirical nature, and sooth us with stories of overcoming adversity. Inspire us to better ourselves, and help our fellow brethren.

In short, quit moaning about it and write something worth reading.

And get me a pint.

Needs more

Anyone got any dirt to air?

Riding season is near - saw my first bike on the freeway today
Dude on a muscle cruiser of some sort with the skull facemask thing - he looked very cool! No like literally cool, like freezing even.

My ex wrote a valentines day column about me and published it on the news website she is the editor of.

I know this because I was home alone and bored on valentines day and checked her twitter feed.

I don't know which of us is more pathetic.

I got nothin. Planning on a ride to Los Alamos in a couple of weeks. That's about it.

Oh, I really like Thimbleberry jam.

And get me a pint.
Daggy (the new BMW club Pres) actually asked me to write something for the BMW newsletter. One of the problems I have with writing is my inability to type, hunting and pecking gets old after a time. there, that's inspiring isn't it?

On another note, my heroic deeds have included much work on the GS as always. The BMW sadists who designed the front fairing/cowl on that bike make it nearly impossible to do anything without taking it completely apart. replacing the bulb on the speedo took two days....

All Bearings have been replaced and the Freeze/Heat Measure/Shim operation will commence soon.

Did I mention the damn fork seals again?

TKC-80's are planned for the KLR250, fun with tubes!

What you all got?

Prop, why don't you take the wiring harness apart again for the fun of it?

I'm not messing with the wiring harness, because this time I'm messing with a fuel cell. I got the performance camshafts into the Bonneville, and the motor still works. Did I mention that I dropped a screwdriver bit down the oil feed tunnel into the crankcase?

Managed to get it out with a magnetic extractor tool thingy, luckily. That was about a month ago.

Anyhoo, ordered various fittings today, and found a cheap duffel bag to hide the fuel cell in. Also put engine bars on the Bonnie, after swearing I would never, ever do that, which are supposedly going to be used for mounting extra lighting.

And the dealer says my new Tiger is on schedule.

Triumph released the accessory list and prices, and boy oh boy a second mortgage looks totally feasible right now.

And I am about to add a GPS harness to the Bonnie as well.

So that's nice.

Watcha writing an article about? Huh? Huh? And when is Daggy going to do his camping seminar? I want to learn to be more interesting.

And what's this about fork seals? You're not using "leakproof" brand ones I hope? In case anyone doesn't know about them, they're shit.

I'm also vaguely thinking about a meet and greet at my place in April. The last one went quite well.

Thanks for that

In other news, restaurant week is the end of the month. Good deals at otherwise expensive as hell restaurants. Anybody make plans? I'm going to Saffron with my sister.

I need something to do on my breaks! Chating with the people I work with is worse than reading about Mikey's love life
