    College towns are great, aint they? Just got back from riding trails in 70 degree weather, and the suns shining hear on the coast. Ajay, just for you I dislocated my thumb when I busted my ass hiking around some of the steep trails. Looks like Im grounded for a bit.

    I do not necessarily want anyone injured, I don't agree though that the fun should go on without me.

    Did you get that thumb x-rayed ? You may (probably) have a fractured scafoid bone as well... sorry, but just saying.

    ...since it's not, let the dislocation serve as a warning. No more vegan, "sports" like hiking. We don't "hike"... we "scout out" locations. You weren't wearing any hemp were you ?

    Brought this home Friday. Been wanting one for years. Moving house this year, so decided this is the time.

    New Car Mate 6x12' trailer (inside 73" high).

    Still have my 3-rail bike trailer, undecided,but I'd like to keep it. My Subaru won't pull the enclosed (but Wifey's car does just fine).

    The factory mechanics did a decent job disguising it, that is true. Clever use of RMZ platics and decals but unmistakably a WhiRR. You could clearly hear the genteel queef of the exhaust when he was jumping the quad. I clearly spied the single radiator as he scrubbed the finish line too.

    This is they they call it "the show".

    Word has it Stewart was tired of the 5 speed on the DRZ he usually rides indoors. He had to change countershaft sprockets after riding from the pits to the starting gate, you know, before going "off roading".

    DeCoster tried to get the factory to build a one off works 6 speed for #7 when he was at Suzuki, but the engineers said it was better with 5.

    I had klim make limited edition hemp jerseys and pants with "my farts dont stink" embroidered across the front. I only use free range local organic gas and oil in all my bikes as well, and my helmet is composed of the most pure of intentions generating from the perfect alignment of my chakras along with a spritz of the ball sweat of the most devout himalayn monks that only live above 20k feet.

    I was scouting, as Im still a dirt learner I was riding the steep and rocky "more difficult" blues and wanted to see what the "most difficult" blacks were all about. Steeper and rockier from what I gathered while tumbling. Im usually an ace at falling as i perform that trick regular, but for some reason my hands thought this would be a good time to try and break my fall. It was not.

    Nice !

    Found a deal on a 6X12 V-nose tandem (electric brakes.) Still undecided, Rebster is down but I need to pay for a tig set-up first. I could ditch the Sportster and just about pay for both... I know how the Regrets Committee (henceforth referred herein as, "The RC")will vote. :D

    The fuel mileage of towing an enclosed is a concern... I am a KLR owner after all... but the new Taco does have the tow package, dual coolers, 7-way round hookup (with under dash brake pig-tail), Class IV receiver etc. Can't really let that goodness go to waste.

    Of course the Sportster goes,any bike that doesnt get mentioned in the 1st 300 pages of a thread,is obviously not the star of the garage.

    (The Shriners are usually looking for them though)

    Just a lowly 3inch Arkansas quartz crystal. Not near enough energetic resonance to ward of the spirits that inhabit OHVs. It was an Ipad, thank you very much, mounted right in front of my face on a modified harmonica mount. I was uptdating facebook with pics of mount shasta's aura at the time.

    I'm all about motorcycles... more so than most, but is this REALLY the right place to be posting stuff like this K-man ?

    Well, I was handling western rattlers and soeaking in tounges, and soaking in a big steamy tub of cow shit ayervedic style before the ride. Even tebowed before I got on the bike. The kelp wrap must have been whats missing.

    Sorry. D-tox and kelp. Got it.

    I went to the gym today. Got a good lift in, then soaked in the hot tub for a while before going on about my day.

    I see what you did there.

    TOTALLY OT, but did you soak those friction plates in oil prior to install ?

    Yes, I did. I was taking pretty pictures for a writeup I'm going to do for the wrr website, so I put them in there dry just for that one photo.
