I've had decent luck diluting hydrogen peroxide with warm water and adding baking soda (i.e. the skunk remedy).

They boiling water actually did quite well. I just have to make sure they get dry every night. If that means putting news paper in them to try and soak up the water or just getting them in a ventilated area so the dry out. I know there is a full thread on this somewhere here and on thumpertalk. haha.

What he said, except my dog doesn't bite and I already have a good bike.

Seriously though, if you need anything while passing through PA, don't hesitate to call out.

New Fork seals and the Icefields Parkway

It turned out the KTM shop in Grand Prairie had fork seals, oil and neoprene fork "gaters" for me. It only cost me an arm and half a leg. And I had to promise my first newborn.

I made it to Dan's house (derideon) around 5:30 yesterday evening. We started tearing into the 690 right away. The first fork took about 5 hours. The second fork took 1 hour.


Dan and his shop. He has some amazing posters on the wall.


KTM's new "hover bike"


One fork tube apart.


Mud from the Campbell Highway.. not supposed to be in there..


About to put her back together


When you don't have the KTM assembly tool T1402S... you can McGyver one out of a strong plastic bottle and a hose clamp. Make sure the edge of the plastic is straight that is contacting the bushing. Heat up the fork tube with a blow dryer and a few taps sets the lower bushing in place.


Dan's Little girl gave me proof of being in Alberta.

This morning Dan and I rode from Hinton down through the "Icefields Parkway". It is quite and amazing ride. The mountains are so crazy. On one side of the road the rock layers are vertical and on the other side of the road they are horizontal. So the mountains are either flat on top or jagged and pointy.


Jagged.


Flat on top.






Glacier!




Right before Dan had to turn around and go back north.






I think the park ranger feeds the big horn's so you can get a picture with the waterfall behind them.




Lake Louise. So many tourists.. but it was purdy.

Now I'm in Canmore in the Hostel Bear chatting with an amazing girl from Spain... So I am going to keep this short. I will try to make it to Missoula MT tomorrow. Thanks again Dan for the shop space, bed, food and tour of jasper and the Icefield parkway! You have a place to stay in MN anytime you want!

I traveled the Icefields Parkway myself 10 years ago, most beautiful road I've ever been on.




Stayed at the hostel in Lake Louise, nice, cheap and friendly.




If you end up heading down through Kanaskis Country there's a campground that has teepees for rent.
