"The first ever Sip and Dip Festival is coming to Fayetteville this weekend.
The event combines the Northwest Arkansas Cheese Dip Classic and the Fayetteville Foam Fest into one.
Both will be held at the Washington County Fairgrounds on Saturday, May 5.
The Cheese Dip Classic is from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. and costs $10 to get in.
Proceeds will benefit the Single Parent Scholarship Fund.
Festival-goers will get to taste a wide variety of Amateur and Professional cheese dips from across the area.
Right after the Cheese Dip Classic, the Fayetteville Foam Fest kicks off.
That is from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. and will feature more than 200 craft beers, including several locally brewed beers.
Tickets to that event are $30. Proceeds will benefit Feed Fayetteville.
Tickets to both events can be purchased together for $35.
For more information visit www.cheesedip.net or www.fayettevillefoamfest.com."

If'n I'm drinking beer tomorrow evening we're gonna call a cab and stay in Magoo's spare bedroom. Oops, Martha says she got us a hotel room. Gonna be an expensive weekend I guess. No riding for me ..... She says I "owe" her....hmmmm pay back is a Son of Gun.
YEAH sippin and dippin tomorrow. $35 gets a mug and all thge drinks and all the dip you can handle. Apparently a problem for me. I live , 2miles from fairgrounds if anyone can't fiond da way home.

ed. will show up if I aint daddyin.

Until I started using Sea Foam my DR's pilot was plugging up if I let it set more that 2 weeks...now it is never a problem....that damn ethanol will go right thru the filter and make jelly then get hard as an old bois d' arc fence post You could hang a pipe rail gait from.

Looking at street bikes as we speak. BUT, streets are straight as a string. Guess that's why just blowin through the ff*in desert is most fun....

Wayno, you realize it is not the ethanol that gums up and hardens it is the less refined peto product. The ethanol is actually a octane boost. Takes more heat to ignite. So when they add that the gas processors don't have to refine the fuel as much to get the octane rating they need. When the less refined fuel with ethanol is put in you tank its "fine". But the ethanol will evap quicker then the gas which evaps better then the petro sludge bits which the ethanol help keep thinned out. Once enough ethanol and gas evap from your system the tars start sludging back out. So if you never had troubles with 87 octane before the eth addition and you can only by fuel with eth try the high test 91 or better and see if you have the same clogging issues. Thought here is to get 91 with eth addition they have to refine the petro to the 87 or better to get 91- Don-t remember the numbers from adding octane boost.

Charlie, they didn't happen to have a rear wheel assembly, minus the axle now, for a DRZ did they?

Not a salvage place. More like a vintage place.

Good job joe. Now imagine Doc is going to try and will be going around with a kilt that won't go up over his butt. No one wants to see that. Just because you had to see that when he was changing all those flats doesn't mean you need to subject the rest of us to it.
