You skeered?

Don't worry they don't let me wrench on them. I just break them. The nice thing is I don't have to pay the maintenance bills. Eurocopter parts are almost as high as KTM parts.....almost.

I ordered some bags yesterday.


Maybe I can carry my junk with me without having a duffel bag strapped to the seat.
I added a tube/fender bag I figure its only a matter of time till I'm going to need it.

They're both tank bags. Just goes over the fuel cap. No reason it wouldn't work. I plan on using the larger of the two as saddle bags.
Just search for tank bags on rockymountainmc.com
The small one is like $18 and the larger is $35.
Technically quad stuff but I don't care. I got a buddy I ride with that uses the smaller set on his DRZ.

That is quite possibly one of the most disgusting things I've ever read.


note to self: Never ever never ever sit in a chair when visiting Lewall.

You obvioulsly haven't read any incest porn story books

Found one in the guard shack at a Navy base while standing duty. I was ashamed I liked reading it.

Someone commented that riding behind that XR of Lewalls it smelled rich. I just bet it did.

Well this is a boring day

Everybody must be gearing up for the 3 day weekend. Man I I woke up in severe pain with my ankle last night. I thought I was feeling ok so didn't take any advil since yesterday morning. Barely could stand to pee. Took 2 advil and 20 minutes later pain was gone.

So my ankle was worse than I thought and Advil is better than I realized.

I have a fat chicks cankle. Would look terrible in those strappy heels Ted wears.

Yesterday I hobbled out to the garage and pulled the rear brake lever and bent it back to a reasonable shape. Cut the balls of the levers to move my perches back out where they belong and sanded the deep gouges down to a reasonably smooth surface on the bark buster that ate gravel.

At least this crash didn't cost me money. And no animals involved.

I think you've done more to that ankle than just bruised it..and quite possibly, everytime you walk on it, doesnt do it any good..

Maybe

But feels okay right now. Was worse when I high sided one into a creek bed years ago and it healed up so I think it will be allright. Was bigger than a baseball.

Gonna cook out with my family tomorrow. I can only take them in short bursts. Than down to Devils Den if my neices want to go swim. They always do so sure we will.

Need some help figuring this out.

My Strom takes a 525 chain and sprockets so that's what I ordered from Motorcycle Supply. I got a Regina chain and OEM sprockets. I just got back from a 500 mile trip and on the way I started hearing a weird clicking sound coming from the rear of the bike. It sounds like the chain is worn out with intermittent clicking from the chain area under load at slow speed like the chain not meshing properly.

So, what should I be looking for? How do I tell what size chain I have? I had Larry mount them during a rear tire change. Y'all think I have a mixed bag of 520 and 525 chain/sprockets or should I be looking for something else?
