Not riding yet. Santa work to be done. ( Translation = It is too cold & I am too lazy. It was still dark & scary.... )

they are $105 at chapperal racing.

if it lasts 2000 miles its cheaper than a tkc. ( they last me under 2500, and are scary on wet tarmac after about 1000)
I really need to keep one wheel shod with a shinko, or other 'street' type tire for commuting, but I am usually too lazy to swap the knobby for a day run.. haha

My wife wont ride with me, she says " I dont want our children to be orphans"

your a lucky dude!

Kathe and I geared up and went gravel roading up in MO this afternoon. Made the first creek crossing on a slab just fine. Second was a bath. Green snot all over the slab and just enough water running over it to hide it well. Made it about 3/4 of the way across and the front end went away. Got the bike up and we both walked it the rest of the way across.

As we got back on the bike and rode off she hollers over my shoulder; "This is fun". I love this girl.

That is about half price! I have been on the fence, but I just ordered one so it can go to the Keys at the end of January!
Thanks Albie.

You ordered 2? Are you going to have one shooting backward on your helmet?

Carb-boy Mouth delivered on his 99+% guarantee and cleared the generator carb. Maybe I'll work harder to clear every tiny hole next cleaning! Thanks Matt.

Changed the oil in the generator, so it is ready for our next ice storm.

I downloaded new maps onto my computer and one Nuvi 500, but i'm having a heck of a time getting my PC to "recognize" it.

The second one is so that Doc doesn't sneak up on him.

Any time Magoo, seriously.

IM enjoying these beers too, the first two flavors that I have tried,Ive liked ( and thats not normal for me!)


I changed plugs in the beemer, then suited up and rode to Missouri ( after hanging wife's wreaths on the house)

apparently I didnt securly fasten my right side spark plug cover plastic, it blew off somewhere.

STRONG winds, and I was running 80+ mph, so no idea where it went.

came home, got a text buddy needed help fixing flat on his son's razor moto, electric dirtbike thingy, so we wrestled that tube out patched and back in, dang a 12" tire is hard to mess with.

stopped by the hardware store for some tung oil, for some semi homemade xmas gifts. a guy saw the gs parked outside, and pulled over, and came inside and hunted me down, he wanted to know about the older beemers.

He has klr650 and wanted a larger 'adventure bike', afraid of the complex newer beemers, and the pricetag, he seemed surprised that an old oilhead could be had so cheaply.

we spoke for a while, I gave him my card, he said he has heard of this website, so maybe we will have a new NWA member.

got a large sack of turnip greens from my grandads garden now, going to wash them, finish off Magoo's fancy beers, and call it a night.
