    No Moosekilla, Jack makes for a total of 3 OFC's (old fuckin' coasties). I guess Jack and Tom may be snuggling and you can join them for a "manage-somthin- de-twat" (that there would be a Threesome to us simple folk), but it won't part of that nastiness!:lol3

    And BTW, for a few beers tom may dress up like a wimmins and strip for you for you, but again, I won't be part of that nastiness either.:puke1

    So here's the run down:

    Moosegriller: R1100GS
    Special T: H/D FLWHOKNOWS
    Jackmehoff: R100GS
    kodiakme: R1150GSA

    Hey Fite,
    It's been a wonderful experience, actually.
    Kinda like running in sand, but I am still moving forward.
    All of the parts have arrived at Rancho Gusgus. I may be able to achieve a full motorbike, by this Friday. I guess I could have used "should have a motorbike", but with my recent history, "may" just sounds more likely.
    I got's something for ya.
    A "bigfoot". I would have given it to toomer last summer, he had already installed the longer sidestand. This will extend your side stand about 3/8's and enlarge the base. Do you want it? If you don't want to use it, I will ask others.
    Just let me know.

    A "Bigfoot" ? What..... my size 13's aren't big enough????? WTF ????
    I would love to try it out. Really enjoying "Bigger Bird".
    Jury still out on the color but it is gaining popularity.
    Love the 6th gear, hydro clutch, and the little dealie that tells (?) the fuel level. Now I know what you clowns have been talking about with your "how many bars are left "?
    A new definition for me.:lol3 :lol3 :lol3
    Looking forward to DD and D2D. Can't wait.
    31 days till departure. Best of luck getting your ride back on the road. Fite

    Turtle Club
    As discussed previously on this thread we mentioned a visit to the infamous Turtle Club whilst we were in Fairbanks for the Dualin' Dalton Run.

    I'm thinkin' we ought to meet for dinner on Sunday night June 11th.
    This would make for a great opportunity to plan our assault on the Dalton, enjoy a fantastic meal, partake in a cool beverage, and bench race a bit.
    I realize a few of you had requested a Tuesday night gathering and that may happen also. I think Sunday would be better because of fewer miles traveled for most of us. Certainly smoother roads.

    Heli .... you are now officially in charge of reservations and seating arrangements for this momentous occassion.

    I say 6:00PM Sunday, June 11
    Who's in??????

    Team Pterodactyl
    KATOOMER
    ACE
    FASTLANE
    FIGHTER
    THE DICK ?

    (cut & paste from D2D thread)


    Turtle club: Check
    FEGC 6/11 & 13: Check
    Wiseman 6/12: Check


    btw, should we have a Trutlr Club re-dux on 6/13, or just have füd at FEGC since that'll be a long day coming from Wiseman/Atigun?

    Pretty good menu at the Camp; I've been eating there the last couple of days, doing some fixits and so on. KAFF has the cabin, and the bunkhouse is looking good for cheaper stays. There's a lower cabin that's available, too (Heidi's suggestion). I think it sleeps four. Rest assured that we won't be without beds there. GG/FM booked an upstairs room and they're nice, too. Pics to come tonight.

    Wiseman is locked in for the cabin (KAFF), lodge room #1 (FM & GG) and lodge room#2 (helikron and Fugawi)... the rest are camping there or Coldfoot?? Kodiak Contingent can speak up; Heidi at Boreal has welcomed us to pitch tents at the lodge and still have use of bathrooms, so that's available for nominal $ contribution. No guarantees against mosquitos, though.

    I'm getting out there this afternoon with more materials; I'll take some pics and post 'em for y'alls perusal.

    Any objections to inviting George Rahn to dine with us at the Turtle on Sunday night. I figured we could all throw in a couple of bucks and buy his
    dinner. He's a big help to ADV travelers coming through and I think this would be a nice jesture of appreciation. Talk to me. Fite

    Hell no.

    What kind of question is that? Any friend of ADV travelers is a friend of mine. Introduce us and count me in for some $... I will buy you a beer or 6 to cover that $ IOU2...
