    Yes, a beer theme is prevalent.

    Going to do an oil change today. Hopefully.

    Also, congrats to Minnesota's newest KTM dealer: Crosstown Cycle. :clap

    Wow, I haven't been paying attention, I thought MotoPrimo was still the KTM dealer. Good for Pat! :thumb

    Then just ride.

    Point the bike in a direction, go, enjoy, come back, tell us about it.


    And congrats to Crosstown Cycle. :thumb

    I just washed the Tiger. It looks better now.

    I might take the Zed out for a test run this afternoon. :clap

    Happy dayz.

    I was in Brainerd Thursday and noticed that the dealer south of town on 371 is closed.

    The old Suzuki is awake from it's winter nap. Rode it around the neighborhood for a bit. Anyone recommend a tire gauge to keep in the saddlebags? The older pen type style one I have keeps saying I have 80psi which is BS-i.

    I bought a digital gauge from the parts store. Looks just like the one from SnapOn for lots less dough. I have one in the truck, another near the compressor and another in my MC toolbox.

    My likey digital.

    I use a Cruz tools gauge with a flexible line on it, available from Dennis Kirk, and other places I'm sure. It is not a cheap gauge, but the flex line means I can get it on any wheel, including the pain in the arse sport bike wheels with huge brake discs and no room. It is a well made gauge, I like it a lot.

    EDIT: Basically the same one Pinecone just posted. Pinecone is fabbo. :raabia


    Big Zed runs very nicely, had a nice test ride today, all is well with that bike again. Pretty happy about that. :thumb

    Not sure how long Moon Motorsports has been on the map of dealerships for Motus, might have a chance to see one next year?

    Moon is probably one of the best dealerships to handle Motus. Coolio.
