    The trailwing (I think that's the name, however I may have it wrong) is a tire, the post was in response to the request for a DL650 tire.

    Rob!

    Cool man! I'm in no hurry, so I'll just plan on swinging up by you sometime to grab it and buy you some BBQ. I'll have to look at the rim, not sure if it's tube or tubeless. I kind of think it might be tubeless? I'll have to check when I get back home later this week.

    Everything is great on this end, amigo. We'll chat soon.

    Howdy y'all!
    I've been here in Colorado for about 4 years, now, and am in search of some parts. I don't want to pay BMW prices as I am wanting to convert the tail of my GSA to a standard GS style tail (with the under seat lock box and two part seat). I, also, just like junk yards and wandering around them and seeing whats there. That is how I found a good Sachs 125 engine for my Penton as a kid. Never know what you might find out there. So, anyone know of anything? Or someone who might want to trade/sell?

    Cheers!

    I have 2 Primus fuel bottles and 2 Primus water bottles and am looking for some holders to mount them on the panniers. Does anyone have any they want to get rid of or ideas. I seem to have sold a set of panniers with two twin mounts on them not long ago. :cry Silly me. :lol3

    And those were a pair of TT aluminum crap. Great for trips to Starbucks but they bent and the bottles fell out first time riding off-road :eek1. I had to reinforce them with steel angle iron.

    Speaking of rear racks, I need one for a DRZ400-S. Prefer PMB but let me know what you have. Thanks. :thumb

    So my girlfriend is moving to CO from BC (yeah, WTF is she doing?) in May - June time frame. She has two horses, and we're looking to board in the Boulder County area since I'll be working in Gun Barrel.

    Anyone have some property in the area they'd be willing to let us board at? We don't need stables or anything, just a fenced in pastor or something. There are tons of boarding places, I know, but just seeing if I can score a deal with an ADVer.

    PM me if you've got anything or any ideas.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    I'm looking for a new home (for me) but inventory is ridiculously low. Do you know someone in BOULDER thinking about selling?

    My criteria:
    House, Condo, or Townhome
    1+ car garage
    2+ bedrooms
    2+ baths
    Location: City of Boulder

    I'd prefer a 3 bedroom house. I'm open to anything priced under $420,000. If it's on the MLS, I've already seen it.

    Please PM or call me if you have any leads. 303.746.6896

    p.s. Yes, I'm a Realtor but this is NOT an attempt to pick up new listings. I'm looking for a personal residence for myself and I'm tapping all my networks. :deal

    $420,000 :eek1

    How about a mostly remodeled 4 bedroom, 2 bath, with a heated/insulated 3.5 car garage for $200K?




    It's in Colorado Springs though. :evil

    Sounds great, except for that last part. It really needs to be in the City of Boulder. My business is based here and my ties to the community are deepest here.

    I'm looking for someone with a Moto Guzzi Norge who would be willing to let me test-fit the Norge wheels to my Stelvio. I just want to know if they fit.

    Will settle for matte or gloss black, nothing else. Not looking for the Gascan. The Gascan S is the small/slim model.

    They don't make 'em anymore and I would prefer to stay away from Ebay for now.

    Looking for hopefully inexpensive stock muffler for my Suzuki DR350. The local equestrians and law enforcement will really appreciate it.

    Looking for an electric dirt bike for my 4 year old son. Prefer OSET but open to others such as the Razor. Thanks.

    I'm sure this is wishful thinking, but I would like to trade my '11 990 standard suspension for an '08's taller "S" spec suspension. My suspension has around 4k miles on it, and is in very good condition.

    Good luck there. While we're on wishful thinking, I have a KLR650 I'd like to trade someone for a GS1200 :rofl

    On your 990 suspension, you might think about going 2 steps stiffer on the front for springs. It made a big difference on mine. Unless you are >6'2", the longer suspension really makes the 990 difficult to handle, especially if you have a decent (thick) seat on it. Unless you are doing a lot of big hits for a lot of your riding, I think the shorter travel works just fine.

    Hey, it can't hurt to ask.

    Thanks for the tip on the springs. I definitely need to do something as the front is far too soft. I am planning on doing a fair amount of dirt 2up riding, and am going to get the suspension tuned. I was just hoping to save a few bucks. I'm a long legged 6'2" and can easily balance the standard bike.
