    I have some moto pants that need pocket zippers replaced. The zippers are outside the Goretex membrane, so I think it should be a rather uncomplicated (I just hope it is, since I know zilch about replacing zippers)
    Anybody know of a shop that will work on Nylon Moto pants in Oregon?

    Ring up Mr.Ed's in Albany.
    If they can't, they will know who can.

    Those of you who know me probably know me for an ATGATT kinda guy. The one time, THE ONE TIME, I decide to forgo the full gear in picking up a pizza at the local pizzeria, I get the daughter of a moto safety instructor behind the counter lecturing me on the necessity of ATGATT. Well, it was still a hoot feeling that hot breeze in t-shirt and shorts!

    WT Actual Fuck?

    Anybody keep tabs on our GFunk?
    His LinkedIn profile shows he moved to St. Paul MN end of October without so much as a fare thee well.

    My last spotting of him could have been 4 years ago at qwackers?

    Wtf G?

    I wasn't sure where else to post. But since Greg posted here more than anywhere else, I thought this was the best place. I am so terribly sorry to inform you that Greg/max-headroom.445091, has passed away. His brother started informing friends on the evening of Monday, August 17. I do not know any details, just that he has died. We found out because we're friends with him on Facebook and a friend posted a tribute last night. A zoom memorial is being put together and, if you would like to be involved, DM me. The memorial will have opportunities to share stories about Greg.

    We met Greg just after we moved to Oregon from Germany. He put together a wonderful gathering of Africa Twin riders in the Pacific Northwest, introducing my husband, coyotetrips, to the Steens Mountain area, and we've returned there a few times and he always starts telling stories about that adventure with Greg. I met him at one of the Burning Moto Man gatherings by the legendary Eric Laws and his wife Gail outside of Eugene, and he was hilarious - his employer had required staff to go to one multi-cultural event a year, and he'd convinced them that Burning Moto Man was a great event for international cultural awareness (well, it was, kinda...).

    So, as I said, a zoom memorial is being put together and, if you would like to be involved, DM me and I will pass it on to the organizer.

    I met him exactly once, at Qwackers, a while ago it seems.

    He seemed like a decent guy. I got the sense that he was the kind of guy that would get the party started, then disappear. He passed too young.
