    I got tired of waiting for joe to get out of the shower and post his pics from Arkansas, so I ordered some parts, and when they arrived, i fixed my broken bike, went for a ride and took my own pics, and here they are for the world to see.
    creeks are full as you can see

    If you're comming to the Spring Ride and have never been to the farm, look for these, they are directly across the road from farm lane

    I love that GS! Dakar version rules! If I had an extra, what, how many grand do I need to save for one? What is the tank capacity?

    That looks like one of the bottles that was stashed in the grill. I recognize the seal. It's good to have this kind snake bite medicine available at the farm in case of emergencys. I hear it can also help fix a busticated bike. By the time you get to the bottom of the bottle, either the bike is fixed or you don't care!

    Nice pics!!

    great pics Chain... brings back the fall ride instantly, I recognize almost everything. I was looking at the spring ride pics 4/2004 and it looks like this year might be warmer if this weather keeps up...(?)

    what parts did you put on? I have the happytrails brace but haven't put the boots on yet. have you had any overheating problems with them on?

    my dakar is SO freakin' clean... it's disturbing really. :--)

    Its always a special treat when you dump it and it keeps running. Especially if you don't have e-start.

    Nice pics!!

    I specialize in that shit. You find a way to dump a bike and I'll practice it until I get it right.

    I admire your work ethic.:thumb

    Have you ever tried the "stop next to a small tree without putting your feet down, put out your hand and realize the tree can't hold your weight" dump? its f'n sweet.
