    Tics are no problem. Get em at O'Reilly's Auto. $14 + $4 for pit pass. If my son doesn't want to go I'll holler at ya with his tic. I don't have a connection otherwise. Sorry! We are planning to go around 5pm or so.

    Wait, You've got Moosehead as your domestic beer and you drink Coors? I'm worried about your already. Make sure you get proper ventilation when you run that motor in the garage. :D

    Nice bike (the XRL). I just sold my XR650R. Plated it first. It doubled the value.

    I actually took my Moose pack off my front because the flopping was causing target fixation. I wonder if I could just bolt something "under" the fender and not drill holes etc? I just bought a fresh fender with a scratch on Craigslist for $15 so I can maybe experiment. I felt compelled to take extra measures to keep the pack from falling off.

    Oops. I went and did it now. Hey I've been known to drink Corona Light and I've caught lots of shit for that. I guess I drink a lot of Pacifico too. :huh Maybe I need to check my own ventilation....

    Sweet! I get my ZDDp off ebay in packs of 6 or ten or something. All my cams I've tried from him have gone through break in beautifully using this method. Can't wait to hear more!

    They're very marginal in "dirt". Fire roads and dirt roads are no big deal pretty predictable. On the road they are awesome. Stick to everything even in the rain. My brother and his street bike buddies hate it when I chase them through the super tight twisties and they wave me by lol.

    Hey maybe I was hungover when I bought the C- beer... Since when is moose head the official beer. In the west I would say Kokanee is the winner in the beer department.



    Why did you sell the R? Nice bike. I was expecting a guy to come look at my 650R tonight to buy and the donkey no showed :asshat

    I finally got around to making a turn signal bracket for my pig. It only took me 6 months!

    Acutally, making it only took about 15 minutes, I was tired of having it zip-tied to the brake hose.

    I had Avon Pro Extreme DOT rain tires for a while. Very similar treads , but real soft. Good on asphalt , ok on grass or packed dirt , but like riding on two flat tires in the loose stuff. Front was real good. Rear never felt right , harder or softer. 1200 miles and it was done.
