    I've always had good luck pricewise on that stuff from Dennis Kirk.

    Some people report better prices from motorcycle superstore etc on occassion, but I've never been able to beat DK pricing, even with the 5 dollar per tyre shipping cost.

    Pick up a tire for me too?
    I need a rear BMW tire. I should have had Leo's put one on in C/Falls.

    Tell me what you want, glad to pick one up.

    I think I'm going with BT023s. I liked the 021 and the set is $230.

    Get Bent had the gnarliest schedule, I figured I'd get my shit in order and then wait for his schedule to clear up.

    This chain thing presents some challenges, such as removal of the old one. Getting a new one with a clip style link, but that old one has to come off somehow... :uhoh

    I have a chain splitting / rivetting tool. I'm sure others do as well.

    I say pick a day and have at. I got the gsm tires changed but the KLR needs eventual love. My to list for that is:

    Chain
    sprockets
    lube swingarm

    --secondary tasks
    tires changed
    progressive springs

    on a side note I am considering trying that ride-on goop in the tubes. Thoughts?

    Actually, no... not since Mouse decided I needed to busy myself with training a new puppy in my spare time. Make that ALL of my spare time. :bluduh

    I understood that the drowned phone was exhibiting premature battery drain. Can't you just replace the battery in it?

    And then, maybe, I don't know, not drop it in toilets or something?

    I was going by what your wife told me. So in that regard you are correct.

    Perhaps you should try inserting the phone into your anus?

    If you are unable there are several people who would be happy to assist you with that.

    I am not one of them, though I would probably laugh about it.

    I understand many of you in the engineering field spend much of your time with your heads up your anus, but how you think that would repair a water damaged smartphone belies any common knowledge.

    Did you learn that at university? or perhaps boarding school?
