Ojay, that deer impact knocked your muffler clean off!

Ojay, I'm sure glad you're ok. Just last night, on my ride home, I kept reminding myself to "SLOW DOWN", particularly since daylight is diminishing. I hope it all works out for you.

Ted, I don't blame you for selling the GS. As evident by today's posts, GS Riders, seems to draw the wrong kind crowd...

Glad to hear you are OK or at least only roughed up a bit. Sorry to hear that your bike got messed up tho. Sounds like the deer got the worst of it tho. Thank God for his Divine Protection. That is definitely the way I felt after my little get-off. Gave me a new prospective on life. More thankful for all the little things, or at least I used to perceive them as little things. Keep the Faith and keep on keepin on Brother!

Sounds like Charlie, ArkWhizzy and I are "in" (i.e., not much Jeep mechanical help unless it has a bad stator ), plus a banged-up O'Jay.
Anybody else??? No welder and/or strong easy out volunteers?

Let's not make work for you and Ms. Sharn', Doc. All you need to provide is a fire. Each of us can bring our own drinks and something we toss on the grill for ourselves. No menu planning that way, nor guessing who will show, OK?

You might get some if you post a craigslist ad, in Eureka Springs.

I gots skills working on Jeeps, but I'm also throwing a Halloween party this weekend, so I can't help.

I do have a little Lincoln handy mig welder you could borrow if you need it. Also, I have some Brown dog MML I'm not using. Don't know if they will work on your year, but I do know they work on both the 4 and 6 cylinder of my year.

Let me know.

Happy wrenching.

I will ask Ms Vickie to whip up some brownies (No Mouth and Magoo, not that kind of brownie). What's my posting counting now?
