    Have I got a deal for you FF's! Stuff is packed and I'm on a plane come Saturday. I have some miscellaneous stuff in the garage and it's yours if you want it. But it's a package deal and it you want one thing you have to take IT ALL!

    Scorpion A/T takeoffs (F/R) from my 990. Not new, not bald.
    Tech 8 boots, size 11. They've been abused in SoCal but they still have some life left in them.
    Fox Chest protector. It may have seen the SoCal dirt a time or two!:rofl
    Bike stand
    Tire pressure gauges (2)
    A box of misc levers, a new spark plug, a couple master links, etc.

    I'll be around Annapolis all day tomorrow and Saturday morning. PM me if you want pics.

    Is anybody going to try the 2014 GS Trophy challenge in September? My off-roading skills are not near the level to win this but I figure for the $200 fee, it will be a lot of fun. I'd be interested in sharing a room if anybody is going? Dates are September 20-22 in South Carolina.

    I would assume this has something to do with it



    Apparently that rimlock is made of lead or something haha.

    Yeah, just a single heavy rimlock. Apparently it's so heavy that most riders and mechanics can't be bothered to balance it, though the ones that do say it makes a big difference.

    I've never run a rim lock and don't ever see the necessity myself but I believe I've heard of running two, one opposite the other to help balance the tire? I can't imagine running one without some kind of balancing done. Wouldn't the tire be so out of balance as to make the bike un-ridable?

    I've been buying at Mongers for about 20 years now & have an account. Never seen a motorcycle there. It's a great place and the people are cool. JM played soccer with my son; they made that handy ball complex near Mt. Crawford. We are fortunate to have them in the community. I'll ask for you next time I'm there. I can haul a pretty good amount of stuff on my street bike but I probably won't try using it to get building supplies.

    Oh, I'm sure it's been settled as I'm a few pages back, but that hungry Strom now belongs to Dave (valongbeard).

    PS: Didn't you realize that once you post in this forum, you become a de-facto cat herder? That's what failing to read the fine print gets you.

    Rolling your own - that earns an "A" for initiative! When faced with similar circumstances, I took the items of required weight to the motorcycle dealer and asked what they had for balancing weights. Luckily, they produced sizeable lead weights that simply clamp onto the spokes. :norton

    I know... what fun is there in that? :huh

    Oh well,
