    Good to see you're doing well. How are things coming with the home garage/moto den?

    :lol3 I have insulation up, but that's about it ,,,, RDV takes a lot of time to prep etc (there is the picture thread about it)

    And the garage is already stuffed, I am moving bikes in and out to get to switch between them (I am mostly riding the DR, Guzzi Hack, or V7).
    I thought about selling the Tiger, since I don't ride it enough. Well, now I am planning to ride up to the Ohio Vintage days in July, and I would have 450 miles back after doing trials on Sunday morning, and now suddenly the Tiger does sound like the perfect bike for that.... just shot me now. :norton

    I wish, but it won't work with my work schedule (as every year) - it's too far for a one night fly by ;)

    How to load a trials bike 101 :lol3

    long story short, my left rear door on the Astro refused to open (gonna need to fix that before next weekend). Normally I can just lift the gasgas into the van... well, it does not work with only one door. :twitch

    either way, instead of riding (too much rain) I finally managed to tackle some projects: new to me full exhaust, racks, wiring the vapor (without letting smoke out :chace) , choke extension, etc.... good shop day with good people and an extra hand when needed - and beers/dinner after :beer


    new to me exhaust and much needed wiring instructions for the vapor thanks to Don

    This day made me realize how much I miss the shop days. I need to get my shit together and sort out/set up my own shop....
    and finally start reading the book that is sitting around way too long

    Move the DR over and tie down the GasGas beside it on the trailer. More than enough room. Tie the front wheel to the trailer rail so it doesn't move sideways going down the road.

    the DR was already loaded and tight up before I realized the door issue... plus that trailer is really flimsy

    I do have all the best intentions, and I did get a lot done on the bike. And I had plans to pull the tires and shock (for service) yesterday... and then I got an invite for a little gathering/bonfire and suddenly it's midnight and I am dodging bambi on my way home :norton -

    Tonight is bike night... so maybe tomorrow :lol3
    Saturday/Sunday is trials - so Friday is the day to finish the TL and load

    There are just not enough days in a week :fpalm
