Damn fine. Looks like you even have better weather there.
What bike is this?
Looks like a KTM 990 or 950
My money is on 950. I don't believe the 990's ever came out in that color.
Just don't ask about maintenance
maybe since the sequester hit the crapital of the US
Good luck/congrats on your son's thesis defense. I remember mine, the anticipation of what might happen was 10x worse than reality, great relief when it was over.
That's right. I saw where you start your furlough just in time for LF.
yep I know people in the really really dark n dirty crannies of the Hill, called in a favor
Thanks, E; much appreciated. He sees his dissertion defense as a formality. He's in the final stretch of capping off his research and documenting as much as he can fit in, and putting together his presentation. He wants to do the finest job he can, yet he's not worried about what might happen. He's on top of his game and more versed than any of his panel members on his specialty. Nevertheless, it will be a relief for all of us once he has time to talk to us again!
Cool sounds like he prepped for success. The way it was done at ASU anyone in addition to your 3 advisors could ask questions at your defense and there was a krusty old Prof in the biology department who was infamous for showing up just to ask a barrage of questions to f-with the candidate, nothing was off the table with him, anything from basic high school science to stuff unrelated to your current thesis. I actually liked the guy but had seen him in action and it could get ugly, I dodged the bullet as he had a conflicting engagement the day I did mine. I was a bit bummed as it was a point of pride with anyone who suffered and survived his interrogation.
Oh, I would not be bummed about that! More than likely he knew you were good and figured you didn't need to be messed with.
Haven't tried it yet. New BBQ availability, Columbia furnace on rt 42
That is Mortimersickle's KTM. He calls it a 950/90. That lad can ride!
looks like a good place to take the tag to eat duck.....
I need some help. One of my front fork seals has been leaking so i thought "no big deal. i will read the manual and replace the seals." the book says to use some special tools to pull the guts out of the inner tube, but i don't want to pull the guts, just the seal. Oops. You can't pull the seal without separating the inner and outer tubes and that means pulling the guts. Crap. I can't get the inner tube off.
Who has experience and some time to mentor a novice? An i going about this wrong?
See, told you you could do it! (We pm'd each other about it). Glad George was there to lend his expertise. FYI - I adjust the doo each time I change oil, takes ? 15 seconds?. That way I know the tension is always in the ballpark.
XC Rider - returned your pm.
Just as LXDDLE said, although I found my WRR to be very smooth. I rode it to WV more last year than my 1200 ADV. A headwind and a hill will convince you that it's not a big bike but just wiggle the shifter and it will rip. Great all around bike, best money I spent on it was the IMS 3.1 tank. Low fuel light would come on at 155-170 miles. Never run the tank low, the fuel pumps like to be submerged to stay cool. Never a problem on mine. In fact, in 7,600+ miles not a hiccup of any sort. Solid, reliable, fun bike.
I wanted to get down to one bike, GS was just getting too heavy for me to deal with (sold to an inmate in NC) and I sold the WRR to manfromthestix in Lexington, so it will probably turn up locally. KLR is in-between weight and wind protection wise (hey, no KLR jokes, this is my 3rd one so I know what I'm getting ) and I think it will work pretty well for my general knocking around/exploring. WRR is certainly more capable for rough stuff but I'm not doing much of that. When my KTM riding buddies stopped calling to see if I wanted to ride, I took that as a clue that I'm probably slowing down... or that I'm an even bigger jackass than I thought.
I need a LF countdown clock. Now that the sun is shining, I have LF fever. At least I warmed up the bike today...with only 100 miles. That was ample to see she is running.
LD, we'll be replacing this toilet in the new house ASAP:
I don't even know how to describe the color.....
Candy van needs a new house battery and some power steering fluid before LF.
She's vaccuumed out and full of bowls, plates and cups.
I'll make the third pot of bean soup next weekend and start loading her up.
Have you tried the film negative trick? I have also used a feeler guage anout .004" to "clean the fork seal. Sometimes all it is, is a little piece of debris that gets cleared by this little trick
just use a piece of 35mm film negative instead of the tool in the video. It's worked for me before.
