    ...and a bad day of riding always beats the best day of work. Unless you're fortunate enough to work in the powersport industry... and then it's all good, all around :D

    I am a lurker - great stuff - keep it up. I need to catch up for one of the rides - just work too much.
    I need to get race-tech gold valves installed in my KDX 220 - anyone know of a shop or someone in the area that can do that for me? Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Contact Reuben Frankenfeld with 35 motor sports. He just did my fork seals in my Husky forks. Great guy and good prices.

    He has a shop at his house not far from Moorseville. He is an instructor for the Kevin Schwanz school.

    I didn't know that is where Reuben had ended up. Lost touch with him. I second that Reuben is a top notch guy and mechanic.

    That 35 motorsports shop looks fantastic! Great prices on tire changes! $15 includes balance. I need to get their suspension sag set up service. $30 great!

    Reuben is a great friend and a super mechanic. Anyone would be well served to have him work on your stuff...

    I just brought him a set of Ohlins to rebuild/mod for my
    'triple-threat' Yamaha srx700 snowmobile.
    He is close to my work and will be working on weestrom forks soon.

    Frank at Outdoor Purrformance in Avoca.
    Only 2 people work on my bikes and he's one of them.
    And he's an active member here who rides, a lot.
    And he's dead sexy.

    Strange that I didnt see anyone else riding in this morning on such a sunny day. With the windchill at -5 I really had to do some talking to convince my DR it was a good idea. That 15 degrees it is supposed to get to is going to feel mighty toasty on the way home, may have to shed a layer. :D

    I was verbally abused cause I didn't ride in today! Way to go AC. Did anything get cold or not get cold this morning?

    Only part that got cold was my forehead since my balaclava slipped up into my helmet. Other than that it wasn’t bad at all. I definitely had to regulate my breathing because if I breathed too hard my visor would fog immediately. Looks like we have some snow on the way so it will be getting parked the next couple of days.

    Have you ever used the Respro foggy mask, it really works in my helmets, plus sunglasses don't get fogged

    Yeah, even my dual pain visor tried to fog up. It was my glasses that fogged the worst. I have used a mask like that in the past but am a bit too claustrophobic for it.

    The fogging issue is #1 reason I want to get lasik.
