Well... I spent about 6 hours in the garage today. Noah helped me put the Dakar back together. Re-did the fork seals (a-freaking-gin). Was funn though. I let Noah drain the old oil from the forks and it had an awful smell. He said, "geez dad, it smells like a million dogs pooped in the same place."

Was a fun day and I have a practically new BMW ready to go. Plan to change the oil in the Tiger later tonight and ride in the morning.

What, you where 2 miles from my house and you didn't call to come by and check out the Old XL.. How dare you.

and Msrider I still haven't messed with the jets just put the XR400 needle in there. but that seems to have fixed it. Unless I get it super hot. And it gave it more grunt as well.

As usual, I posted a straight forward honest question. I wasn't making fun of you, trolling, or starting anything. Yes, as always, I was late (maybe 24 hours late, who knows) answering your call to meet up. But now a days its just as hard for me to make plans as it used to be with my hell job. My schedule has me rocking and rolling to survive. When the clouds part, I pick up the bat phone and call my homies. So, whenever your clouds clear up, hit me back on the Bat phone. Till then I hope you get some helmet time.

Anti- screw your 5 minute rule!


and thanks for showing me the good stuff last weekend.

Warning!! New guy alert!! Stupid questions may follow!!

So I had to take a ride to Canton a few days ago (in the car) and drove there on 51 from Ridgeland. On the way there I noticed that there were a few dirt roads intersecting 51, some even have street signs on them. Are these public roads or private drives? Should I feel free to go exploring (or is there even anything worth exploring there?) or would I have to be worried about being greeted with a shotgun of some sort? I know some of them are driveways since you can see the houses/businesses from the road but some just wind off into the trees leaving me a little curious as to what's around the corner.

Scratched DVDs

We get DVDs all the time that are scratched and won't play. I've been using Brasso on 'em and they work pretty good. Maybe 1 in 10 won't play after a good polishing. Toothpaste works too, but the Brasso is easy.
What are y'all cleaning DVDs with?
