    I'm trying to "multiquote" here.....let's see if it works

    Jack I got every penny out of that poor Tiger. That poor bike took a beating and kept coming back for more. I sent a bunch of pictures to the new owner before he bought it just to let him know how well I've taken care of her :lol3
    Just wanted full disclosure and a clear conscience.

    Tom I think that DuPont Trials was the lat "group" ride I had. I call Headcheck sometimes to see if he wants to ride around the block but that's about it ....for now.

    Hope you're knee feels better.
    You could've come up with a better story than kicking leaves around a camp fire drinking bourbon :lol3

    The dirt racks are very nice for the price. They look to be fairly strong.

    The past 2 weekends I have done the Ricor Intiminators in the front forks, added a fork brace, changed the brake pads (front and rear), and added the stainless steel brake lines. After all of that, Monday morning I'm getting ready for work (running late of course), I've got on all the riding gear, bike has everything packed on it, I hit the starter and get one big "click"....and nothing. Mad dash to get out if the riding gear and into the truck. I think I have a blown fuse but I don't think I will have the time to look at it till Friday night. AND the tail box is broken really good now....

    I had this morning off so I thought I would look at the bike. It seems that when the battery cables are loose, and you push the start button you just get a big click an nothing else. Cleaned up the terminals and tighten the cables it runs fine....well it runs like a KLR anyway.

    I use so much Lock-tite that I'm thinking of buying stock in the company.

    Since the topic of heated gear has been bounced around lately, I thought I'd share.

    Just got these today and gave them a "garage" test.

    Powerlet glove liners. Get the controller these things will cook your hands off if you direct wire them.

    These have a Lycra type material; stretchy and thin. Very comfy and allow you to pick the over glove of choice.

    For the past couple of years I've been using the Gerbings gloves and vest. Gets me through just about anything but the leather is so soft and thin I doubt they would stand up to much abrasion.

    Nice heated liners. Mine are a bit thick, limits the gloves you can wear over them.

    Yeah these liners are thin and effective. Don't know how they'll hold up over time so we'll see.

    Seeing all that beer on the other threads sure is making me thirsty. :D

    For your viewing pleasure. Tom, next time your near Wales you'll have to give it a go.
