    I've decided to sell my 2007 DL650. It has about 9500 miles on it and I'm asking $4500.00. Farkles include:
    SW Motech Engine Guards
    SW Motech Quick Release Pannier Mounts (not shown in 1st picture)
    Corbin Seat w/rider backrest
    Suzuki OEM Handguards
    Suzuki OEM Heated Grips (Never got around to installing them)
    Richland Rick Fork Brace
    Givi Shield
    Madstad winshield bracket
    Hyde Engineering Skid Plate
    You can even have the gay JC Whitney top box if you want it.

    Or, for another $400 I'll include this 3-rail trailer

    Thanks for the link. If I do it, they'll be riveted, not welded. I'm more interested in rigid, lockable storage than waterproof storage. Plus, I've tinkered with sheet metal and rivets before:

    Is the baby gate enough to keep the Mongolians out of your den?

    Hey, that's pretty cool. There is a thread around here somewhere by an Av Mech where he rivets together a trailer. Beautiful work. (here it is...http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=546218 )If you don't have Cleco's you might want to get them. A dozen clamps and a plier makes that kind of work a lot easier. But you might already know that, nice helmet.

    I have to be in Celina Sunday afternoon, but could meet you in Van Wert Late afternoon or early evening. Probably anytime around 5pm or after would be best.

    Tig takes some pretty decent skill. Can you weld chip? I just got a Lincoln 256 and a spool setup not long ago.

    Passably, not as well since I started wearing bifocals.:rolleyes I am self taught but that will change soon as my job is sending me to TIG welding school @ Lincoln next week.:clap
    I just have a 140 amp Lincoln MIG myself. Never tried a spool gun, should make it a lot easier even if the welds wont be quite as beautiful as the TIG and filler rod method.

    Radio is just a hobby. Everyone @ WRUW is a volunteer.

    Usually vocational schools or community colleges sometimes hve a program. Lincoln has a pretty good program up here, make a little money teaching people and free advertising at the same time. I have already taken robot training on the Fanuc units they sell. This is just a prelude to teaching ourselves how to weld refractory metals like tungsten, tantalum and molybdenum. That's a whole `nother story and I don't think there is a welding school out there for that.

    Ctec in Newark has a good evening program, but honestly anymore you can get good instruction online - there's lots of youtube "how to's" that cover it all.

    Let me know how that program works. I got mig down pretty good, gas and arc too. Ive tinkered with tigs some.. would just like to hear the pros give some pointers.

    As far as spools go, Id rather have a push/pull. Nothing to get in the way.. theyre just very cost prohibitive. I got the good magnum 250LX spool gun, but a push/pull costs 800 more for just the low amp base model. No spool sitting on top to get in the way or restrict movement though. I cant justify it as a home welder for the price though. The 256 is the 300A box. I'll probably rarely use it to its full capabilities, but shes there if I need it.

    Mig isn't hard goonie. Push alum, pull steel. Straight slow lines with steel, faster weaves on alum. The rest is having a good helmet and watching the puddle. You'll learn when it gets too big and almost burns through in time. Welder settings are pretty straight forward on the machines, but everyone welds a bit differently so the settings can be tweaked to operator settings. I normally crank mine high and weld fast.

    We had a decent ride today. 'Flagger, Mpenner, Brian (not on the board), and myself puttered around to Danville where we met up with SteveB (good to finally meet you Steve!) and we proceeded to tear up some gravel and some trail, until it was time for Peggy Sues. Since there was pie involved, Alan joined us, and then proceeded to explain the finer points of using a clutch to Brian, and amazed me with his awesome Bluetooth technology.... all while going up and down Stone Quarry. I also managed to peer pressure him into following me across a river, which resulted in severely wet feet and two almost drowned WRRs.....

    Only pictures I got....coming down Turkey Ridge and Mpenner being a nice guy and helping Brian pick up his bike on Quarry
