These next posts may get me banned again for being

I've been very busy with the time off ADV gave me. Quick update.

Took the kids to Disneyland,



Drove 9 hours round trip to get the grandkid something to kick the cousins
Power Wheel asses with.



I had bought her a RZR 170 that is still a little big for her so I did what the
internet told me to do and upgraded all the shocks and added a receiver hitch
so she can tow her dolls in the trailer. I take the job of a spoiling grandparent
very serious. Plus it's fun.

Now for the good stuff. This was on the porch when I got home.



It's from Woody's Wheels. Hmmm, what could it possibly be?



It's now impossible to lose a nipple and I doubt even Jaumev can break one of
these spokes.





I wanted to still run tubeless tires so they have a silicone seal and then a tape
seal around that. We'll see.




Send a wheel in to get straightened and you get a few stickers,
get a new wheel and spokes and you get a hat.



Finish it off with a new K60 for the front and back and I'm back in business.



I watched them moun the rear and on hte balance machine the wheel true
looked fantastic.

I also got a new V Stream large touring screen. Man it looks tall.
Haven't tried that out yet.

Many thanks for not throwing me under the bus while I was unarmed and unable to respond.
Welcome back young man.

So you were saying something about two women at a bar...?

See ya in a week pluric We'll find a way to keep the attractive ladies occupied.
You missed a few.





It was awkward having them push small children out of the way
to have a photo taken with me. One mother got pissy, then she
recognized me. That was close.

That made me appreciate my wife even more. She is ultra conservative and would never buy
a big ticket item. She asked me why I never talk to her before buying anything? I was quite
honest and said "Because you always say no".

The other night I was online looking at nothing in particular. My grand daughter asked what I was
doing and I said "Looking for a new bike." Thinking that would get a reaction from my wife.

All she said was "Yeah that last one you bought has the wheels off all the time. Don't get another
one of those". So I guess I have a kitchen pass again.

Not trying to rub it in. But I am a believer in forgiveness over permission.

I went into a dealer on Saturday and he said to me you really like to ride don't you. How long have you been riding. I said I had my first motorcycle in 78 14 yrs old. This because my father would not buy me one. I had to buy my own. I worked in all kinds of jobs to save up since I was 11 to purchase my first bike. I hated my dad until I realized what he taught me. Thanks Dad!!

Anyways the dealer went to tell me that out of all the customers he sees throughout the day that i am the only one that shows up on a bike in October during a cloudy cold day. ( I just came in after a 6:am ride in the Uintahs and wanted to see if they had something i was looking for).
He said every person that comes in during this day will come in from a car vehicle.
I was shocked. I love to ride. I don't ride for looking cool and have fancy helmets and clothing. I just love to ride. He said he has never seen anyone like me. Everyone usually comes in there car.

So he said a statement that hit home a bit that said i know you have riding in you blood. As most people he sees ride just for recreation.

Anyways I am to the point of getting this Tenere but now my wife is freaking on me.
For those who are married to a non motorcycle luvn wife, how were you able to justify a 14k Tenere?
Give me the secret and I will be a tenere owner.

Did I mention the price of celibacy?

It's really a matter of deciding which you like to ride more.

If Yamaha are going to sell these as a universal fitment for all of their bikes I would have thought they could measure which of their bikes needs the most wire and supply that amount.

Guernsey??? Seriously, do you ever get out of second gear?

Welcome back Pluric.
This thread was too serious without you... and the ladies don’t look at it.

So, I’m sure if someone can test seriously this wheels are you. Woody has a great confidence in his wheels to send it to you!!.
Keep us informed

Well done, and obviously tall bikes are not a problem.
