    Hey Shez, Skip will be at the Red Garter tomorrow night. Me too if I don't miss my flight home. Hope to see some of the gang there.

    Sparks Cycles on Grant has a decent yard. Just tell them before you go in :)

    I might!! I'm off to rescue a bike that just threw a clutch cable, but I've got some mx boots that someone gave me when i bought an xt from him. They're either 12 or 14. Will post update shortly..

    K, it's a set of Fly 805s in size 13. Only used a couple of times, but got left out in the heat for awhile. would you happen to have a KLR clutch cable?

    I'm going to camp that night. I don't think my son will cover more than 40-50 miles.

    I have a clutch cable off of a Suzuki that I have used on the KLR when I broke mine in Texas. Not a perfect match but it got the job done

    I'll keep that in mind. Might be able to jump in, but I'll probably opt to replace the valve cover gasket, clutch cable, and check the valves shims and/or valves.
    Or check out my new DR350 motor and get it up to snuff and on the bike. So much motor, so little time..

    I am planning on leaving around 10am. Will be going down hwy83 to Gardner Canyon rd. Aprox 2-3 miles in. I'm going to camp with my son. If anyone wants to join us for the ride or camp you're more than welcome.

    I am planning on riding the power line/Tangerine/ Tortolitas area on Sunday. If anyone else wants to go and time allows we can do an out and back to Park Links Rd. My day is pretty open so I can ride in the morning or afternoon if anyone wants to join in. If it turns out to be an afternoon ride I'd like to hit the dirt by 1:30 - 2:00 so I can get a few hours in and not worry about darkness.

    Sunday is no good for me. But if you have tracks or a heads up where this ride is I'd appreciate it. That's not far from me at all.

    Someone had asked for nearby camping ideas a while back:
    Last month I did a little moto camping trip to the Payson area, and took the old Globe-Young road. I found myself thinking it would be fun to do an overnight at one of the campgrounds on that road, and mess around on the east side of Lake Roosevelt for a day. Nothing too challenging, but pretty, and would make for a nice little overnight, I think.

    No problem. Post up when you're heading out. I'm sure we could get a few more on here to camp. End up with an impromptu rally.
