I've kept it a secret because its not 100% till I sign the documents....sell my house, pack my sh*t etc etc etc...but things are rapidly headed in that direction....
Mike,
Thanks for everything. It was great seeing you last night. Wish we had spent more time together and ridden more. But now Arizona is a destination. Maybe when we are on the TAT we can link up this summer. Hope the move goes easily and safely, with the bikes arriving upright

The router is working perfectly. Thanks man.

This was China King Buffet. Now it's the same thing with a different name. Was there just a month ago. Food's decent. Costs less than CKB. Same koi in the lobby. :-)

Thanks for all the Battery recommendations for the GS. Shorai is a bit expensive at 180 clams. Looks like a great battery though. I found an Odessey PC535 for 118 shipping included and will go with that for now.

cheers,

Over an hour to get there from here so I will not make it, but I wa going to bring the rotor and a handful of luger rounds in case you needed them. Maybe next time.

The fuel system has to be pressurized. Chuck and I both found out the hard way. We both carry motorcycle specific jumper cables just in case. They are nice and compact and fit under the seat.
I pushed started my Vstrom this summer when my battery died at work. Probably won't work if the battery is stone flat dead, but mine would partially self test the gauges, wouldn't run the fuel pump and click click click when the starter was pushed. I disconnected the headlights before trying to bump it.

I really wish I could join you. Once I get in this new house I should be able to get out more. Too bad I have inspections to do today.

They are under new management and have changed their name. It's now "Hibatchi Sushi and Supreme Buffet" or something like that. And it's $10 a person now. They are open, I promise. I can't make it today though. Why don't we do the RTE lunches on a weekend instead of a weekday? Kinda hard to get away from work on a Friday for me anyway.
