y'know what Formula1 needs?

More dirt.


I found that more entertaining than most of the last F1 races combined = I have a hard time when the announcers get all giddy about the race highlights being when someone passes another megadollar F1 car in the pits...

If they mounted a .50 caliber, that would be neat.

I am looking for Kerosene for my heater. The local store wants about $20 for 2.5 gallons which is pretty steep. Does anyone know of a local fueler that will sell it to me in 5 gallon increments for less?

Have you tried diesel to see if it works? the hydrocarbon chains of kero and diesel 1 are very similar.

Pynergy Petroleum in Englewood, you can buy it out of the pump.

I think the big difference is the smell:

No, have not tried it but will if kerosene proves too costly. Ultra low sulfur diesel may work fine without more frequent wick changes. Kerosene is best as another poster mentioned.

OK, need to fly from Seattle out to Denver and bring my DR650 out in a van. Do you guys think I can get it into a Chrysler minivan (rental) without doing more than dismounting the handlebars? Yeah, I know I will be riding in the rain, but it is time.

I have seen guys with the 990's ratchet down the front end before loading in a E350.

My DR is 48" tall and 88" long; maybe someone can measure a Chrysler minivan.

Just take the front wheel off and roll the handle bars down. You may have to remove the rear fender but likely not. I had a friend that flew to New York with his trials bike as checked luggage to be a minder in a world round in Watkins Glenn. So minor dismantling may be required, but always worth the effort.

Is it possible to buy JET A directly from an airport like the Front Range Airport? I have seen conflicting reports.

Pick up a gallon of Klean Strip Klean Heat at Home Depot if you can't find K-1 nearby....and your time has to be worth something vs. schlepping to an airport to find Jet A to burn.

KSKH is odorless and easier to store too

Thanks for the tip. Although, I like airports. Just my thing.
