Hell Roachy will definately be in for a tire fitting demo, from his last fiasco at the AVR!!

I have some tire irons and can help teach folks how to change tires, or at least how I change tires: cursing and glaring. Should I bring 'em?

I blame the tire on that one (Tourance?)! That sumbutch was boogared to begin with.

Speaking of which I got a bone yard of "Not too bad" tires I went through on the KLR if anybody is running on threads let me know.

Hey, I pm'd you on the 650net site, but thought I'd add here that I'm in Gresham so I can't be too far from you. Should you need anything extra, maybe another grill for the bbq--mine's a simple charcoal grill, maybe a compressor...I could bring anything like that by if you need.

Uhhh, last time your valves were checked you were a rolling "Super Fund" site with all the oil spewing from your twisted valve cover seal....

My cheapest ever KLR farkle was when my muffler fell off. All of a sudden my bike went from pfft pfft pfft pfft to BWAAAAAAAAAAAA and I went all greasy in the shorts.

I pulled into a strip mall and went to the florist, asked for a handful of those green flexible flower wires and kind of wrangled that fucker back into position and got to the bar in time for wings and beer.

The florist was tickled about the whole thing and no-charged me on the green wire.
