    No offence I do not have any faith in the Big two "Dealers" we have done business (Service work with both)

    But I have 100% faith in Heids Hodaka and BMW over in the Adirondacks, they may be a small mom and pop place working out of an old garage, thier service and knowledge are the best.

    I offer 100% honest service.

    Of course, 75% of the time I also have to say 'I have no idea what I'm doing...'

    Example, diagnosing and replacing a transmission gear (think it was 2nd) in my buddies FJ1100...

    Please remember that while Hunting Season has been open for a few weeks now, Rifle Season for the North Starts Tomorrow. Legal or not, might be a good time to stay away from some of the seasonal roads and tug hill. I do not want to hear of any riders catching a bullet from a caeless hunter who shot across a road, or missed his intended target and the bullet continued onward. I am sure there will be a lot of lead flying tomorrow.

    Good call. Good day to stay home and get stuff done before winter. At least one person gets shot and killed up here each hunting season, let's not make it someone on a motorycle...

    So... You don't think we'll get one more ride in before winter?

    Happy Thanksgiving, guys. May your tryptophan comas offer the same weary contentment you get after a long day in the saddle.

    Sweet! Yer gona love the boxer power.

    I bought my R late last year. It was a LONG FRIKKIN WINTER.

    Just get a hair dryer, point it at your face, sit on the bike and fire it up. Vroom Vroom :D

    We be riding next year!

    I bought a small motorcycle trailer that has been converted to a camper. SO haul the bike up to the daks, Stay in a campground for a WEEK and ride every day.

    If time and $ permit, I will take it south some time this winter for a few days.

    Nice catch Thinker!
