    Hi guys!

    Would anyone happen to have a chain riveting tool I would be able to borrow one night this week?

    With a deposit for collateral, if you so choose. I break it, I buy it. My 525 chain comes in tomorrow. I'd buy the tool, but I'm looking to sell the bike I'm putting the chain on and hopefully picking up something with a driveshaft.

    Or, I'll show up at your garage and bring beer. Up to you :)

    If you're willing and able, PM me and we'll work out the details. I'm located in just east of Pittsburgh proper.

    Thanks in advance.

    Where are you located at? I'm an hour north of Pitts. You're probly closer to a dealer that would lend it to you for an hour. But I have one.

    I'm in down in Swissvale. I have it in my head that dealers would never lend out tools, but it's worth an ask. There's also a 'Strom owner up the street from me, I can't seem to catch them while they're home, they might have one as well. Was just pinging the radar so that hopefully I'll have this done sooner rather later.

    Well since you're selling the bike. Buy a removable master link. 2 bucks.

    It's a DL1000, I wouldn't quite feel comfortable selling that to someone with a clip link and feel responsible for the ensuing carnage. Not that I'm against clip links, but for something that powerful, that's not something I want to do.

    I just got back from the Laurel Forks weekend. Wow what a fantastic time. I went on two rides and both were fantastic! What a fun group of people too. If anyone can make it next year I sure would suggest it.

    Hey, I was all through Dawson on Sunday [and waiting on trains to pass] hoping to spot you.

    Now I know why I didn't find you.

    I couldn't get freed up enough time for an overnighter at L. Fork, so I went on a day ride in the L. Highlands.

    if you turn left for Lynn run and pass the little general store continue up the road about 10 or so miles there are a few dirt roads that wind around the mountain. The most scenic is the first 3 miles after turning off rt.30 and going between the horse farms

    Hello all,

    New to dual sporting, forums in general, and riding period. Just picked up a new 650l and looking for spots to ride around Robinson/Pittsburgh area. Any ideas?

    Yep. Hang around here, there's usually something going on. Work will slow down for me soon, and I'll be around more. Until then just keep riding and getting the basics down. You're only about an hour from west Virginia, there are a lot of dirt and gravel roads to play on there.

    Yea. Have some acreage in Greene near the border. Haven't had the opportunity to taker down there yet. Was looking for some people close by to ride with. I've seen a few DS riding around Robinson but never when I was on mine. They always look dirty so I know they know something I don't! Lol. :evil
