I could finish Doug's crash bike on the other lift before Ron finishes that thing.
Thanks for the pictures. Sprout said you had a good time. Any other rides planned? Have you looked at www.dakotadualsportriders.com
Got a couple hours to kill in des Moines today and might as well go bike shopping. Good dealers in des moines?

For Ducati, the best guys around are at MotoSports on the south side. Doug is the owner. They are normally open until 4 on Saturday.
Aaaaaargh! I got the Adventure back together only to discovery that something inside the rear carb is stopped up. The jets are clear, but some passageway in the carb is all jacked up. She now sits on a workbench at MotoSports. Sooooo tired of wrenching and not riding.
That just plain old SUCKS!!!!!!!!
I wasn't planning on going out today because of the forecast, but it ended up being pretty nice this afternoon, so I got to survey some of the washed out roads..
I've got the next two Sundays free to ride...got some planning to do.
Step one, build an ark.
LOL!!!!! Step two...charge admission when the flood starts.
Step 3: Make sure you provide the animals with prophylactics or your ark will be overun in a matter of months.
Man, that sucks. I feel your pain though. I went to replace the rear shock on my KTM at the end of last year, and I'm still working on it!
I had it so far apart to get the rear shock replaced (I didn't know it would go out the bottom of the swing arm!) that I thought I'd fix the leaky sprocket shaft seal and rebuild the water pump. Adjusted the valves while I was in there. Did some jetting on the carb. Put it all back together and my regulator/rectifier blew - along with all my light bulbs. Replaced all of that to find my capacitor was blown too. Got that back together, drove in some mud and both of my front shocks started hemorrhaging oil. I managed to clean the seals with the ole business card trick. Oh, and I had to replace the front brake lever since the mud made my bike tired and she decided to lay down.
BUT! (knock on wood!) she's up and running now. Hopefully the front end will make it through the summer and I can rebuild those shocks this winter.
Step 4: Overinflate your tires:
I am definitely getting one of these. LOL!!!
REGG....where was that at?
It was on a gravel road just east of Garber. I'm not sure of the road name, but I'm pretty sure the bridge I'm parked on is Cedar Creek. Are you familiar with the road?
A KTM 950 Adventure "Neked"
We finally figured out what was wrong with the engine rebuild and got the Adventure back on the road today. What an "adventure" it's been getting this thing going again.
Congrats!!!!! By the way, it looks as if the Monster in the pic is blushing.
