    That was the whole idea, shovel out the bike, trailer down and come smell the flowers.:evil

    That sounds good, always a fun ride, about a mile from my house to the start.

    I will be up until about 1 am if anyone wants a phone # or address.

    (Pui) so a shim kit is great but a lot of these damn bikes a lot Of times need diff shim dismeters. I have a bunch of shims for my Fo fiddy, but the Honduh 250R's need a diff diameter, bummer. Learned that the hard way. Working on a 250R right now. Had to buy shims.










    Dear Hotcams,
    I am awesome. Please send me 1 each if your shim kits.

    Sincerely,
    Broke Racer

    I bought it from BikeBandit. After how Westside treated me regarding the KLX fuel tank recall I will never do business with them again, not to mention thier sales staff sucks and are oblivious to everyone not looking at BMWs. I would have dealt with Roundys but they are no longer dealing with Kawasakis so theres no reason to drive all the way out there...

    Is there any (legal-ish) single track or more difficult 2-track down in that area? Nothing is showing up on the Idaho maps, but that usually just means it isn't FS or BLM land. I'd have a hard time justifying hauling the bike down there just for a ride's sake, but the wife has friends in that area she has been wanting to visit... :evil I would stop protesting if I could have some fun too!

    I'm here to tell ya that it doesn't matter even if you have a BMW. They could care less unless you're buying a new one.

    What's up with $hitty Spokane dealers? First Beaudry and now these clowns? Nobody knows how to provide good customer service any more. :huh

    Lots of little urban areas right in town, usually you don't want to stay more than a few minutes then head down an alley:D.
    So stop protesting and have some fun too! Make them take you to Fazarri's pizza, have the Shabam or Shotse


    Some of the farm roads could be considered legalish single track this time of year. One of my favorites , and where I am going to go in a few minutes, is Meyers ridge road out of Asotin, then if I can make it to the top I can go down Couse creek. thetourist and I have had a full days worth of adventure staying mostly within sight of the Lewiston airport on our DR350's. :lol3

    I do use a heated jacket so even those cold pockets on the north side seem toasty.

    If you golf you could ad that in too.

    I bought my 919 there, ONLY because I really wanted one, and it was the last one I could find, aside from one in Rexburg and a "new" one (the headers looked like they were 5 yrs old) in Kalispell.

    I remember walking away from the deal twice in disgust. The sales crew had the worst attitude. I ended up paying way too much for a leftover, but it is a great bike. I've never been back, so hopefully my lack of return business is hurting them. :D

    Is this what ADV comes to in the off-season? Might as well join in! Maybe we should start a "Spokane Area Jeepers" thread.
