To save you guys some time, lets meet at the Tim's on St. Mary's at Ward at 08:00. Let me know if you are OK with the changes

Hey Guys, weather north and east of the peg is not looking so hot for tomorrow. StubbleJumper and I are gathering at 5pm for a beer, and formulating a plan...might not be heading to Selkirk afterall. Besides ON/OFF was there anyone else who was going to join us??

Yes, I was planning on heading there too, but I'm up for anything, I personally don't think the rain will be too bad, I'm waterproof now and the marshills area is all sand so wet sand is easier then dry sand.

Talked with Doug today, he said it will depend on what the weather is like. Personally I don't mind the rain in that area but I'm not sure what others think of it.

Talked to Stubblejumper tonight over a beer. Weather for Wpg and north is 90%, Which I could handle, but 60 kph winds I don't want to handle! Will just see what the weather is doing in the morning, how about we connect online in the AM and maybe doug can give an update on weather first thing in the morning. If it is like today high winds and rain, I will be staying put!

Hi guys - I'm in town and don't have a commitment for tomorrow... a ride would be great but I don't need the crappy weather. I've going to finish my drink, go to the garage and try to change the front and rear rubber (got new Dunlops). I'll watch this thread and weather permitting (and skill level - never changed tires before) will see you guys at Smitty's tomorrow. No more stocker for me - finally got bars, skid plate, pegs, and some other goodies . All that went on pretty easy. Not sure about the tires though... any tips please feel free to post.

Yup - maybe too big... chickened out on changing tires after reading 'cause I think I don't have enuf tools ... and I didn't wanna be stuck unable to ride if the weather gets better in the morning. Should probably get spare tubes too. Decided to clean the chain instead. Looks great now and has exactly 40mm of play. Boy that chain cleaner smells good . If it is rainy then I'll give it a shot.
