    Hey guys,

    Matt is leaving our fair city for greener pastures on Sunday....seriously, we couldn't make a pasture green around here even if we wanted to.....there's no damn water:lol3

    I've talked him out of packing & taking care of all his last minute stuff to come out & have a beer, or some pizza, or both on Saturday:D

    We'll be at the Me-n-ed's Victory grill on Cedar btwn Ashlan & Dakota @ 2pm this Saturday if anyone wants to join us:freaky

    You too Dave. Will be olympia wa or denver for warped! It would be criminal to take the bike to Chicago. Kinda like a tiger in a zoo.

    Might be able to sneak away for a few - I don't know what the Mrs has in store for me yet tomorrow.

    Do any of you have a one motorcycle hitch hauler for sale or rent? I need one soon and I don't have time to mess with Craigslist as I am stuck out of town for work.

    Thanks, I should have just went on up to Brewer, didn't realize that you guys got such a late start....and duh, you were in 4 wheeled vehicles so it's not like you were going to be in & out in an hour like on 2 wheels:D

    First time Steve had been there. He thought it was a short trail and it is, on 2-wheels! I told him if we got directly to the lake we'd be there a while. Most of our time was spent there and I'm still sore from moving boulders.

    Hello from Shaver. We are visiting from So Cal. I have ridden with a couple of you a few years back and was hoping for some advice. Non moto related. GMC Sierra broke down, right front hub I think. I need to find a good garage for repair and have truck towed to it. Have AAA. Somewhere between Shaver and Clovis. .....Any suggestions for a shop for today, Suday. Or tomorrow Monday the 21st. Thanks in advance Guys. Spyder. 619 887 nine oh 64. Edit issue is not resolved. It appears to be right hub and 4x4 related. I would still like to have it checked by a good mechanic.

    There is a one man show down in Auberry that serves the area. Auberry garage I belive. Across from Castilo's mexican food. There are one or two others in the Auberry area and a Napa as well. I dont think many local business people gouge people.
