Dang! This is the weekend SWMBO wants to visit the kids in Shoreline. I'll wave as we pass each other on the interstate.

FYI if anyone wants to come chill this weekend, we'll be there dyno'ing bikes at Empire and Cycle Gear Friday-Sunday. not saying come buy stuff, but if you want something to check out, swing by, say hi. we're doing discounted baselines and tuning.

Changed the oil twice today on the sherpa...

First time I inspected it, saw there wasn't any need for a heli-coil, and that the previous owner, who I like less and less each day, was just an idiot. He threw some sort of rubber coated plastic washer in there. Was just cracked. So this idiot changed the oil, and instead of using a crush washer, I threw in an o-ring.

Lasted a couple hours before the o-ring popped out and started leaking again. Off to cycle gear to get some crush washers, changed it again. Ran it for a few minutes, and so far no drops. I'll check again in the morning.

No harm in a good oil flush!

Not a single drop. Apparently using the correct sealer is the right way to go. Now I only need a clutch cable and she'll be tip top.

Also got a dr650 tank, going to try to fit that on soon.

Anybody going to be out riding today and going thru Rockford? Just got my SM wheels back on the DRZ and will be taking it on a short ride to make sure nothing falls off. I will probably be leaving around noon or 1pm.

Hey Tim, are you planning on sticking to pavement? I need to pull the Beemer out if it's winter hibernation nest to get to my 12-ton press and figured I may take it for a short spin. The KLR scattered throughout my garage and I should be focusing on that but I really need to increase my riding:wrenching ratio for the month.

Yeah, sticking to pavement. Don't want to get my rims dirty. Gotta be home by 5:30 for Supercross. Live from Houston Tx.

Will ride to the casino gas station for gas, then to Plummer. From there, cut across to Fairfield then back to Rockford.

Sounds good. Where and when should we meet? I'm at least 30 minutes from being ready to head out. I will PM you my phone number.

Just got back from a ride with A19. Rained for at least half the ride. Good thing we didn't ride very far. Thanks for coming along Rick. Bring your rain gear next time.

Had a great time Tim!
Yes, I was unprepared for an actual adventure today.

Anyone looking for a cheap set of "riding" gloves, I was at the Ace Hardware in Post Falls this morning and came across this 2-pack of Mechanix-style gloves on sale for $9.99, marked down from something like $25.00. Thin but strong, padded palms... They are sized a bit small though; the XL is a tight fit on me and I usually fit tight in a large. I don't know if this deal is at all Ace's or just that one, but I thought I'd pass it along.

Looks like a cheap summer glove solution. I'll have to check my local ace.

Feike and I had a good day today. Over 150 miles through Valley Chapel and around Lake CDA. Stopped in and said hi to Live2ride and Bgunn, had some lunch in St. Maries. All and all a terrific day to ride. I'm read for a nap.
