    Do you need them immediately or just as soon as possible?

    Anyone got a machine shop or a good drill press? Need to drill some big holes in my bar end weights since Yamaha put up a few obstacles to mount hand guards, with nubs holding everything in position on the bars and the grips and throttle hang over the end of bars and rest partly on this screw in bar end. Anyway I'm struggling making headway with the hand drill and cutting oil. I may have a crappy drill bit as I couldn't find my box of good bits.

    Hm, just found this thread, figured I should introduce myself.

    I'm a native cvillian, and ride a DL1000 and my old CBR600F (Hurricane).

    Howdy. I'm a native C'villian also (Albemarle mostly). Check Cat Herders (Shenandoah Valley) for a bit more activity on ADV.
    My local DL650 is for sale (eyesight issues are causing me to have to give up riding) if you know anyone looking for a ready-to-ride '08. I'll be posting an ad on FM soon.

    Hey Ken,

    Yeah it sux. My nieces husband (Guzzi rider) thinks I should buy another Super Enduro and shock the "floater" in my eye into submission. Maybe I should try it :D
    Cataract on the same eye can be dealt with - probably...

    Doc says it's going to get worse before it gets better. Been 6 months, sure isn't better, not really comfortable riding with one really blurry eye. I'm planning on improvement over time, gotta be optimistic, eh?

    Now, back to the regular ADV programming. Anybody riding in the salty warm weather?

    Closest I got was the convertible. Windy as hell out here today. Might have time tomorrow for a little loop. :ricky
