Some of that....



Not a ride without some....



Yours truley,



Fun, fun day. Cleaning up his morning I did find the rear wheel nicely bent again.
This is really getting old.

Doesn't look that bad in the photo. Put it in gear and it's a good one.

Guess who's calling Woody's for the fourth time?




Damn, Pluric...

You gotta' quit with doing the rim jobs!!!

Gotta' hand it to ya', though... You do take riding your S-10 seriously. What I wanna' know now is when we're gonna' see the M&M stickers on your bike from the big-bucks sponsorship deal?

Funny I was going to ask about that. It really is getting tiring to keep dealing with the wheels.

Slow down? Why did Yamaha make a 100hp dirt bike if you can't use it???

Did I mention how fun the ride was? I'm still giggling about it.

Sorry, I didn't mean to turn you on.

I think I would be better on wheels than the real deal.

What I need now is the small triangle that protects the frame ... can you get it for me and I will duplicate it and send it back to you with a duplicate as a present ... I pay CIF values.
Cheers,
Roberto
PS.- The carbon protectors of the forks are made by Pro Grip.
Sorry I don't know how to find this triangle, also in Spain they den't sell the Worldcrosser kit separatelly.

Well according to Dallara I'm giving them a "Rim Job".

I will be calling Woody's to see what replacement options there are
and Tabasco to get new tires.

To think people tease me about how boating is just throwing money
down a hole. They've never owned a Tenere.

Two weekends ago I did sink my jet boat. Bailed it out, got it off the lake
and an hour later was back on the water. Didn't cost a dime.....yet.

You make it sound so much better than it feels. (Sounded like my wife there)

But thank you.
