I'm just so glad that highlight reel included my all time favorite. I can (and do) watch it over and over again and it never gets old

After I posted that, I realized Geek would probably say the same thing about me... especially after my face plant in the mud he so artistically-captured Memorial Day weekend

And smart enough to sell his heavy-azz 990 for a smaller KTM, right?

Anybody have an extra KLR throttle housing laying around?

I opened mine up, and lost the lower clam shell for the throttle.


Will post in the RM Flea Market thread too.

Thanks,

Signed, stupid.

My wife told me I had to go..

To the little museum here in Craig to see the Norman Rockwell "323 Saturday Evening Post" exhibit. Was not to enthused, but man did it bring back memories of growing up. So if you are in the Craig area up until Sept 14, stop in to the museum. Here is the article on the display http://www.exploresteamboat.com/news...rican-artists/

Obama traffic woes

Got stuck trying to cross town last night when Obama visited. They shut down the main street (College Ave) thru Fort Collins for 1/2 hour. The motorcade was quite impressive. My daughter went to see him talk at CSU.

On the way into the office, I learned he was still in town today. I zigged through various side streets as they were pulling down the police barricades. I understand the need for all of the security, but man, I wish he would go home now.
