"Cats in the Cradle" hits home pretty hard some times.

That is the shitty thing about life.....There isn't a one of us going to make it through alive.

My Dad will be 78 in a couple months. Still riding his GS, Harley and Quad. He is also still bitching that we ride too damn fast, Roads too damn dusty, Roads too damn muddy etc........

Hey all, I moved to Eugene a couple months back, and would be interested in meeting some local riders. Are meets pretty much organized and announced in this thread, or is there a Eugene ADVRiders site somewhere?

Got skype? Get him hooked up. It's not as good as seeing him in person, but it's what I use to keep in touch with my folks across the country.

Favorite/cheapest tire change place

Need to get a couple of tires installed on the Magna. I usually take them to Rod at the Triumph place. They don't have prices on their website anymore but it used to be $20/wheel if you packed them in.

Anybody else in town do it cheaper? Yes, some day I'll likely own a KLR
