    I'm going to be out and about in Cambridge soon, and later Woodstock. I'll be riding my 82 Yamaha Maxim and wearing a yellow and black jacket.

    Wave if you see me! ;)

    Any one up for a ride in the London area this Sunday. Prefer morning and more dirt than tarmac. Text me Andrew 226 973 2081.
    I'm running a xr650r.

    Anyone going to the TO motorcycle show on Saturday.
    If your cutting through London, I would be interested in hitching a ride and splitting gas.
    Thx

    Had both bikes out today, 2 hours total. KTM gave me a little issue... Started up fine inthe garage but after 20 mins of riding it died at a stop sign, sqtarter was clicking, but dunno how the battery couldnt be charging, I was higher RPMs. So, Kicked it over, 2 nd time it started, and rode it home. At home same issues, clicking. so guess its going on the charger... CBR had no issues whatsoever! Was good 2 wheel therapy day!

    Any Airhead riders / wrenchers in the Essex County area? I bought a '77 R100 a month or so ago, and think it would be great if there was an 'old school' mechanic type or a super enthusiast around. Maybe I could pick their brains on a fork rebuild or have them do it for me? For a fee of course. (and I'm sure other service and general issues and questions)

    Absolutely! I wouldn't be waiting for paint to dry, or trying to create a hotbox to speed the process...

    Looks like our thread went dormant for a while. Hopefully the weather breaks soon. I've been booking time off from work to get the most of this year's season (EOAR, Michigan ADV Rally, DRCOOL, Fall Colours). There will be others but those mentioned should not be missed! Let's have a safe season and be sure to salute your fellow ADVrider :fyyff

    Mike I think mine did this winter, had it on a trickle - tender for 3 weeks will find out soon... Need the battery that takes the vibes on mine, does your 950 need the same one?
