We took off said underwear and tied them together to make a tow strap and Phil pulled my busted KDX back to camp.

To this day I cary a folding tow strap which I have used 6 times....

Oh yea and I still leak when I pee no matter how hard I shake it....
Two guys undressing together in the woods in Mississippi. Prolly happens all the time.

Really, there should be a better way.
It does not get easier... But the Rally Raid filter on the 690.... A new filter chassis that you have to RTV in place?
Easy to change once done though... Now I'll probably need to remap it

Keep The Mapping simple, stupid

I'm guessing the 690 doesn't employ one of these:

Actually...Yes, it does. Seems to run good so far, but lots of intel says as much as 12% more fuel in spots are required. Dunno how much the PCM can swing.

Can't believe you guys dont recognize a pee leak sealing unit! You simply stick the offending appendage into the female socket and push the button on the other end.

Why else would Mug post such a device on this thread....

My daughter is 8. It has been my responsibility to take her somewhere every morning or afternoon since she was born. Today she is gone for a week and for maybe the 3rd time in 8 years I get to ride my bike to work again.

I got to work and discover that I lost the fucking tool kit that I had strapped under my fucking laptop on the luggage rack.

I would go look for it but it's a 100 mile round trip and over half is split lane interstate so I could only look on the return trip anyway.

Fucking sucks.
Fuck.
Motherfucker.

And yeah pee leaks too.

no time to ride

This E-waste scrapping thing is getting out of hand, I was supposed to be retired. Ready to go back to being broke.
This load is from one stop and the jeep was packed too. I had to buy a bigger trailer.


OTOH I'm getting a nice collection of vintage gold chips. I've found 2 of the white ones in the upper left. DEC J11s. They are bringing as much as $109 each on fleabay
Scrapping the old rack mount stuff is an interesting treasure hunt. Found about 40 grams of 8k solid wire.
