    Hopefully BMW of Atlanta will be able to replace all the hardware you lost or cross-threaded during the 6K service. :D

    Wow. 4 pages and I haven't posted anything worth while. :uhoh As I'm not a lazy git like Antware I should get rollin' here...

    When we woke the next morning we found cheap bastard Data Daddy fitting his KLR with a Wal Mart Corbin. These guys will do anything to save a nickel :rolleyes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After he finally fitted the seat with a few Wonder bread twist ties and some used gum, we headed off to the track to watch the abomination that is the Daytona 200.

    We got there just in time for the real race (Superbike) and as it was DD's first time worshiping at the altar of Big Bill France, we walked along the fence to experience the machines as they flew by the start finish line.

    [​IMG]

    I think he was impressed :lol3 The crab on the other hand? Feh.

    [​IMG]

    A friend of Linzi's stopped by with his woodchuck.

    [​IMG]

    The crab whooped both their asses and sent them crying to mommy :razor

    On your marks...

    [​IMG]

    Get set...

    [​IMG]

    Snooze!!!

    [​IMG]

    It seems the little feller was so tuckered out from all the phone calls to his little friends that he couldn't keep his eyes open. It was ok, he didn't miss much. The Buells all exploded, my friends bike kept having problems and my boy Duhamel was running away with the show.

    Until...

    Zoiks :eek1 He remounted and finished 5th. Not too shabby. It would have been better if he could have taken out Mladin when he crashed. Twat.

    Back at Kamp Kraut it was time to tun the cocktailometer up a few notches and see if we could get DD back on his feet. This would call for something big. Real big...

    Tab Energy Drink for Wimmins! :freaky

    Not only was this shit so bad it was almost undrinkable, but DD still went to bed at 8. Whatta puss :baby

    Time to check out some of the high dollar machinery and farkle that turns up for one of these events...

    KV's Tigger was sporting the latest in navigational equipment.

    [​IMG]

    And the KLR contingent was not to be outdone. He even had the latest software upgrade. Most people are still running V2.05

    [​IMG]

    KBM scored a ride on a tasty 'tard.

    Big big thanks to Jeff and Kari for hosting Kamp Kraut every year. You guys are truly the bestest and I am humbled and honoured to know you both and very thankful to have the opportunity each year to get to spend time with you.

    Daytona wouldn't be the same without you :thumb

    Sunday morning the castle was packed and the bikes were pointed south. Next stop Key West for a little sight seeing and some R&R. Not much to see but slab until you get to the keys...

    So there's this one Key called Deer Key. It's called that because it's infested with these little dog sized deer called Key Deer. Go figure huh? Well there are speed traps and flashing lights and signs and 23 different kinds of shit to make sure you slow down form the already glacial speed limit to something close to molasses in a Kapuskasing February. It seems the little bastards are almost extinct. As far as I'm concerned if they are too dumb to get out of the way of a Buick doing 35 mph perhaps their day has come and gone.

    Anywhoo, so were slipping the clutches in first to make sure the little dolls domt become fuzzy road pizza which is cool with me IF YOU COULD ACTUALLY SEE THE LITTLE BASTARDS! :bluduh

    Screw Key Dear :flip

    We made it to KW in the dark and set the tent up by the glow of headlights and grabbed a quick dinner before turning in. When we awoke it seems the view wasn't too shabby. :1drink

    We spent the day, ambling around and being touristy. The crab was feeling a little homesick so we stopped by the aquarium for a look-see.

    [​IMG]

    They all look so tasty :dg

    [​IMG]

    He found a friend! :wings

    [​IMG]

    Herpes the wonder fish was on display.

    [​IMG]

    Checked out a ship wreck museum which had a nice lookout tower to take the city in. Too bad these behemoths were assing up the view :bluduh

    [​IMG]

    A panoramic view of Key West. (click on the picture for a bigger one)

    [​IMG]

    Ring the bell if ye spy a ship wreck, or a nice set of bewbies.

    [​IMG]

    One of the locals. Nice enough guy, but a little stiff.

    [​IMG]

    Crabs chats up some of the local yard boids.

    [​IMG]

    And then pauses for a photo opp with Mel Fisher, treasure hunter extraordinaire.
