    That sounds perfect, I don't mind exploring. Let's call it 9am then. That means I don't have leave stupid early and you can warm up in the campground.

    Cool.. lets call it 9-ish (notice the waffling on the time...). I'm one of those poor bastards who gets up at 4:00 am every day for work so I'm eager to sleep in a bit tomorrow. (although sleeping in is usually 7:00 am for me) I rarely get a chance to camp and relax so this lazy SOB is going to get rolling tomorrow at a casual pace.

    I'll be the dude with a white Tacoma and a DRZ with training wheels :lol3

    Damn Snap, I have never seen such pasty white bruises before...
    Those aren't get-a-way sticks, more like get-a-way stumps.
    Speaking of stumps, you still have both your stock legs, what are you worried about?

    by the way, are those bolts the new ARP wavelock bolts for KTM ignition covers?



    I wish I was going to Big Bear this weekend instead of work :puke1
    Have fun this weekend and don't think about deep pit BBQ's :D

    HELP!


    Shoco is stuck in Apple Valley with a broken clutch cable on his '05 DR650. Does anybody live near there? He's looking for a new or used clutch cable and the suzuki shops in victorville and barstow don't stock the part. Any suggestions about aftermarket replacements or independant shops that might have an old one laying around would be welcome!

    :ear

    I called long beach motorsports, mid cities honda/suzki in bellflower, malcom smith, victorville suzuki/kawi, chaparral in san bernadino, import cycles in fontana(?), motorcycle depot of riverside, berts mega mall in azusa, and mountain motorsports in ontario, none of them had it in stock.

    thanks, dude!

    I talked to a few of the places in hollywood and the s.f. valley and they're out as well.

    they normally stock it at suzuki of van nuys but he just sold his last one this morning:doh


    he's ready to try a vise grip next if all else fails, but without a cable he'll probably just limp it home:dunno

    Check your PM...sent you CapnJack's phone #. I think he said he was going up Thursday though if I remember right.

    Maybe try Bert's...it's on the way for anyone going on the 210.

    Good luck!

    Wish I was going...but doing some S/R training all weekend.
