Thanks and thanks for helping me get it running! My B no likey hot weather. The Down draft Weber gargled some gas and came back to life. Will need to look into that problem a bit more before venturing back out this summer.

Awesome garage, Guy!!

I changed a tire this evening using the NoMar that would have been near to impossible with regular tire spoons. These things had the stiffest sidewalls I have ever encountered and the mounting scheme I came up with worked flawlessly with no problems whatsoever. No bolting to the floor necessary. It's a keeper!!!

May as well make it hot. The tacos are gonna be, ummm... zesty. Rich's salsa is going to be hot. It's gonna be hot outside. Why fight nature?

Speaking of Sunday's Get-together... I haven't received many responses. I hope everybody knows that this open to all ADV'ers within ear-shot. Yeah.. even you tidewater fellas.


By the way, Guy,
Nice job on the No-Mar mount. That is EXACTLY what I pictured when you described it to me. Glad it worked!

Come one, come all.... just let me know if you are indeed coming so I can get a rough count. If it's hot, humid and nasty outside I'll try to have some moto-tainment for us inside.

Hope ya'll can make it.

I am going to try....of course lots of stuff that can distract me.


But that does sound like fun!

You got it, and appreciate the comment on the mount. I was a little nervous about it, especially when the manuf. told me it wouldn't work. Just call me hard-headed.

I just ordered an accessory for the changer that I wished I had last night working with a thick, stiff walled cruiser tire. Should make it a little easier the next time around.

Man, I would love a chance to meet ya'll, but that's the R-BMJW-R meeting-n-riding day. Have a cool one (or a hot one, your choice) on me.

Maybe I'll get to meet some of you yahoos at Mortons on Friday. I'll be the idiot n00b who hasn't been offroad much before. Just look for the pile of bike/rider off to the side. LOL!

Thanks for the invite Tony, but we'll be in the mtns for the next two weeks. Would have loved to come. BTW, we are about to start picking some of the hops. Not a great crop, but they are getting bigger and starting to flower. Porbably will have flowers on all four types this year; vice just the Cascade last year.
