ted, dravin, whomever...

I have a few sets of alpinstar boots size 5-7, that son and daughter have both worn, if and when yours are those sizes...


lots of boots on craigslist, many of them apparently sold by Midas himself.

He had to ride with the pants unbuttoned as he outgrew them. It's tough dropping big money on riding gear when they will be grown out of in months. You can always find pants and jerseys pretty cheap in closeout sections online, I have no clue about boots though.

I thought I had him a KTM 50 SX found but we sat on it last night and he is too big for it! I guess the mx bike shopping for him continues...

If course I'll do fuel check first, but symptoms are the same. I've never done a timing job (and need a good set of feeler gauges), may try it this weekend.
I thought that was your natural speed Did not know you were Wringing it out. You made up for it down hill and received your Flattrackers Certificate

Sounds like your exhaust valves are tight.

Yeah, I noticed that too. But if anyone can convince them that the boots are crap, not worth that much money, and give 'em $15, it's you.

OK Charlie.
Joe, doesn't appear to be the air filter as I have cleaned it, and on the KLR 250 it is not a very restrictive one anyway. I can't even get the sucker started now. I'll try to adjust the valves myself, and after I screw it up, I'll bring it to Bill Eddy's. I want to get it back in top shape (it was running great about 1,000 miles ago) so I can put it on CL. I need to raise farkle money for the soon-to-be WR.

Sweet Doc, I bet you'll love it! The wife and I got Droid X's a little over a year ago, our first smartphones we ever owned. Smartphones are freaking awesome, it would be tough to live without it now. Hers recently started screwing up (from all the dropping it im sure!) so I gave her mine and got a Droid Bionic yesterday, I lurve it. I went with an Otterbox Defender case this time, it offers awesome protection and has a built in screensaver. They arent cheap at $49 but it's money well spent in the long run I bet.

I got the Casio Gz'One Commando. Mil-spec case, already proven by me by dropping it several times. I've proven its waterproofness as well.

I with you Ted, I can't see being without one ever again. Too easy to like.
