    Cage the Elephant.. I like them.. I may buy a CD.. yes I still buy CD's, even though the first first think I do is burn them to my IPOD, put the CD in a case and never look at it again :huh I guess I am still a digital newb.

    Al I can pull the relay, but I can also check at Razee's to see if they have one, I am going there today for another reason. The DRZ is the exact same bike as the KLX-400 and sometimes they have parts.

    I'm sitting in Seekonk, waiting for my car to be serviced, about 2 miles down the road form Pawtucket Cycle. (aka Poole Motorsports)
    They are a Kawi/Yamaha dealer and Joe, (service manager/owner) is a long time frien, going back nearly 20 years.
    They have 1,000's of parts in stock, had many of discontinued parts for my AT1 on the shelf!! Parts that are No Longer Available, so if you need something chances are they have it and I can pick it up today.

    I already PM'd you my cell, let me know and I will grab whatever you need...

    Great video BobQ... Does that rib protection make me look fat you think?

    It was a little slippery out there.

    Pretty sure it is all the BBQ ribs as opposed to the rib protection. :D

    Rib protection? Don't forget, Red did break one or two of my ribs before. That was a hell of a Camp-n-Ride campsite injury, and my only Pachaug injury so far. I did get a few Vicodin out of the deal to help me cope though. He just misinterpreted my enthusiasm for ditching the Pallet Hag.


    Speaking of Camp-n-Rides, my next one is the last weekend of the year. 12/28 - 30th. See the CnR thread. They're not all Pallet Hags and broken ribs, I assure ya.

    Looking forward to the final CnR of 2012!!! I'll be there!



    edit/addition:
    Not to play devils advocate but my recollection of the *incident* is that you returned to camp by running into the site out of the darkness and sliding in to the chair ring around the campfire face first like you were stealing home base. Redbeard on the opposite side of the fire ring must have made a comment; it's Redbeard after all... Then you moved (ran?) around the fire and tackled Redbeard who was still sitting in a chair.. Redbeard then got up and dropped a few elbows on you like a 1980's wwf wrestler..

    That was a hell of a camp n ride!

    ...but not in for today. Working on the shop and on the house; haven't had time for the basic maintenance, either.

    Anyone got a 40k+ BTU propane heater they'd like to unload for cheap?

    oh my, a HUGE THANK YOU to all you guys :raabia, especially Blue KLR Paul and alcontrast. I'm sorry I was so slow. That was the hardest riding I've ever done (I really can't think of another way to phrase it :evil) and I had a freakin' awesome time. My left thumb is no longer operable, and the bruises, they're going to be a work o' art. I gotta take a lesson in falling gracefully.
