    My wife has a 6 yr old, so by proxy, so do I.
    I've gotten her convinced I can let her ride.
    Now I'm just looking for a good deal on a little 50cc for her.
    (And a ton of gear.)

    Glad to see that not everyone is as lazy as I am. I may grab a few tags, it is a good way to see a place I otherwise may not. Thanks Gilerd.

    I need to get a mile eating bike again.
    Too many places to ride.
    :-(

    But this ktm is so much more fun in the dirt. I'm not going back to a DR or the like

    I think I'll play too.

    Put new breaks on the machine yesterday. I was surprised that with 13,082 miles they were the factory pads.

    Y'all have any roadside stops you can recommend for a meal? I'm dying to contribute to the Road Food thread.

    I was somewhat surprised your pads were so worn rocktruggy. A friend of mine has a KLR he bought new in 08 and his pads aren't worn.

    Anyone interested in a ride this Sunday afternoon?

    Really? Does he use compression breaking? They would have to wear out eventually.

    I installed EBC pads front and rear. Only took about 15 minutes. I was proud of my self considering I've never done it before.

    I'm sure to some degree. Obviously pads will wear differently based on this. I don't use my brakes a whole lot either.

    All grain ,it is an imperial stout. I like the whole procedure, I find it therapeutic, grinding the grian ,the mashing, the addition of the hops:D what a smell and the tasting do not forget the tasting:1drink
