    Yeah, except two years ago while running the OBCDR,
    I bent the front rim so hard on a root, that there was no way for it to hold air without that tube.

    I bobbled and bounced when riding slow on pavement, but I rode her home, and for the next 2k miles, until I bought a new Woody's setup.
    ..... A tubless (Tubliss) setup would have really screwed up that trip :nod

    As much as I love doing wheelies, I think I am going to quit. After doing that same thing on the CR500, I couldn't imagine doing that on my F800!

    No kidding! Guess I'm getting really old, but that was one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. :eek1

    That is an understatement. :lol3

    Solid ice on side streets and drives of Moscow. So slick I had to hold onto the pick-up to get my mail. Need 4-wheel drive to get out to the street.

    Well, I thought I'd introduce myself, and see what ya'll had to say about my plan to move to Spokane. :D

    My ex has moved to Naples, ID and I gotta be close enough to deal with being a dad to these two rapscallions:

    At this time, I've spoken to Lone Wolf Harley Davidson about a job, which is looking good, at least for the riding season. I might be a bit hungry next winter, though. :evil

    Meanwhile, I am in need of an abode. I know next to nothing about Spokane, other than it's a reasonable distance to the kids without actually living in the mountains. Any advice? I definitely need a garage/shed for the bikes (a 04 KTM 9-fiddy and a 99 Buell S3T) and whatever tools don't end up at my place of employment.

    My budget would be somewhere between cheap and poor, and a short commute is pretty important to me. Years of a 50-mile one way commute has pretty much taught me that my time is worth a lot to me. I'm not willing to burn it up on the freeway, commuting. I'm just looking for something simple/temporary to land in. I'll find a more appropriate kid-friendly place after I get settled in and feel better about the work situation.

    Any neighborhoods to avoid in Spokane Valley? How's the commute from, say, CDA or Post Falls?

    Thought I'd mention I'd be willing to trade maintenance/repair on a inmate's bike fleet as part of a rent exchange program.... :deal (I'm a certifiable, errr I mean certified motorcycle mechanic)

    Aw c'mon! I had my bike out the other day! Although, I'm pretty sure Jarred J. saw me in his rearview mirror do a perfect cartwheel over the handlebars right above your house.

    I'm kicking myself for trashing my old tires; I'm itching to try sinking some screws through a pair to make a set of redneck offroad/ice tires. :wink:
