I am heading out to the lynchburg reservoir/peddler river area to do some fishing.

Maybe I'll see some others in the area out for a nice day ride.

So, if what the papers say is true, we're soon going to have bigger obstacles than ignorant cagers in our midst. The noisy orange bugs are a'comin. We should all kick in five bucks into a pool, and the first one to take a cicada in the face wins it. LOL!

(And yes, they do hurt. Experience speaking.)

So, if you want to win, just be the idiot riding through the bug swarm with your face shield open? I say it has to be on video to win.

So on the way to work this morning, I'm in my jetta tooling along in the right lane on 95 when a jeep passes me in the center lane followed by a MC trooper with lights flashing. Jeep then pulls to the shoulder crossing in front of me with the trooper right behind him. I end up having to slow to 30 to avoid them.

I wasn't annoyed by any of this though. My boss who is a bit of a scary driver was in the jeep. I'm thinking I should get him a watch for motorcycles bumper sticker

You are talking about the pre-load adjuster, right?
Yes. I am talking about the lock nut for the pre-load adjustment.; It is kind of weird actually because when I smack it the spring moves alone in the opposite direction. A bigger hammer should help, but I am not positive it will. I will keep trying at it. I will try to avoid using heat with it being gas filled. I have done this at least seven times before on other shocks without much trouble. I gave up on it last night after beating it for a while and moved on to taking the forks apart. I had never seen the insides of cartridge style fork tubes. Pretty cool. I noticed a SHOWA sticker on a fork tube this morning when I walked by. them on the way to my truck Did the 99' DR350SE really come with a SHOWA front end? I know the 98's and 99's had the better suspensions from the dirt model which is why I bought this bike.

barkbusters for the DL arrived today. Just have to mow some grass then I can cuss and spit while trying to get them to fit correctly even though they are supposed to be model specific.

And Sank, way to kill the thread.










Actually, I bet all those FF who went out at lunch managed to not have to come back in to the computer.

I was just thinking about this on thursday... and looked up some pictures of a motorcycle going through a swarm of insects. Looks fun... Reminds me of this time I decided to jump through a rain cloud to see what it was like. Mistake. Those rain drops hurt! I suspect those buggers hurt more.. especially if they hit you in the neck! The rest of me is pretty much protected.

This is a useful item to pack for trips, a small jiggle siphon, jiggle the brass end and it will suck the fuel into the line until the flow starts on its own, small to pack.

I went by the "Training Ground" today. Lots of new "No Trespassing" signs.
