Wow, yes of coarse I would be interested.. I would cover any shipping costs...

Great. I'll swing by the post office later this week when I have time. Glad you can use them.

Chris, I'll be helping a friend respring and valve his 950 forks later this spring. If he doesn't want the old springs, I'll pm you about them.

Gotta say Dave after a close personal look yesterday (gorgeous spring like day) she looked fantastic! especially when compared to the day you first brought it home. Love the new colour scheme, and that new pipe sounds awesome! Great Job Dave. Find a Yellow KTM graphic for that black tank.

Yep, the weather is starting to look favorable for some day rides, hopefully this early spring trend continues... I may shoot down to Victoria in the next few weeks, I will stop by on the way...

No comments on the location guys? Ok its a bike forum but I was taken with the wild, end of the world look of some of those shots, GB. Nice place for riding? Congrats for fixing up No. 2 so well.

Which shots are you referring to? Lots of wild places in B.C. when 90% of the population lives close to the U.S. border, the rest of the province is fairly empty... On Vancouver Island where I do most of my riding the southern half has a 3/4 of a million people compared to the Northern halfs 10,000...The Island is close to 500 KM long and contains thousands of KMs of gravel tracks which opens up a lot of ride options...

I detect a fair bit of sarcasm in Larmie's reply.

I think we are all waiting for Laramie to get his engine back. I hear it's going to develop 120HP, get 100 mpg and only need the valves adjusted every 15,000 miles and oil done every 20,000.

Seriously, Laramie what's the hold up?

We have been mild with above average temps for this time of year, up to 10C during the day... There was a cold snap that came through a couple weeks back and then it just warmed up, nice, I hope it stays...

Going for a ride tomorrow...
