The only Champions run I found was a golf course, and the logo didn't match. Never did find the school...

Who said the logo had to match... If you found the golf course you were 5 min from it...

Are you saying he's close enough to claim the tag?

If not, I say the weather is looking better and maybe GPS coordinates are in order.

Give it a few. My Dakar should be back together in the next couple of hours - I think I know where it be. Then I have all damn day tomorrow to run one down the road

Ya just gotta love it when a million pieces on the garage floor turn into a motorcycle. Even better when after 3 months it cranks and purrs perfectly on the first revolution after a 3 month break

game on

Now you can quit playing with the minibike for a while. (j/k).

Well, the minibike's more fun when the weather's cooler. As it gets hot, the slow offroad stuff starts getting kinda buddy. But I am eyeballing some new mesh stuff

And I had forgotten how much fun my F is

K, I don't even think I'm gonna bother posting it. I've just discovered a brake issue which is grounding my Dakar AGAIN

DRZ's waiting for me to mount a tire, but I've been in the garage working on bikes for the last 5 days and I don't have the patience to mount a tire right now.

I need to go buy a punching bag

That's quite awesome of you. However, the drive to you would probably take me longer than doing it on the floor. I'm just getting a little sick of working on motorcycles. I thought I'd be riding by yesderday. Then maybe today. Now it's looking like a potential caliper rebuild and potentially faulty floating rotor...on the bike I was planning to take camping this week. I'm just a little bummed that that's off. I'll probably cool down and get to changing that tire here in a few...just having a moment

Tag!



I've been sitting on this one for days because I didn't really have anything reliable to ride...found that out after getting this tag. I'm down to one working bike again for now. Err, should have said I'm UP to one working bike again for now .

New rubber went on today, so I'll be out scrubbing in the new tire tomorrow - getting you a new tag! And it won't be all that far off...hate to ride the Z all day then turn around and ride a really long day on that saddle again...rinse and repeat for a couple more days after that. So it'll stay somewhere reasonably nearby.
