    Try closing the gap a bit on both sides of the zipper head with some pliers. Sometimes the gap grows with use which leads to the teeth not meshing

    Look closely at the zipper head. See if there is a number on it. Then go to your local sewing and fabric store. I did that with my compression suit zipper. Putting the new one on was an act of patience!

    Anyone in or around the Front Range have a car trailer/hauler they want to unload? Doing the 24hrs of LeMons this year, and don’t want to rent a uHaul. Cheaper the better, haha!

    Better every day. Bones are mended but it's the soft tissue damage that takes the longest to recover from.

    Anyone have a pw50, xr50 or a ttr50 that needs love? My youngest thinks she wants to ride bikes but I don't have the cash to chance it on one sitting on clist. I'll fix whatever and pass it on to the group. You got something?

    I could use a decent street helmet for my L/XL 23.25” intermediate oval head. I took my trusty old Arai Signet off the shelf and it decided to fall apart on me. I have some really nice MX helmets which are what I prefer to wear most of the time but I need something warm and quiet for the winter and freeway rides.

    Preferably on the cheap. The dollars are running short.

    I've got a harbor freight one I bought from SgtMarty last fall. I was working in Grand Junction for a week at a time and would bring my bike with me. I used it for a few trips. It worked well. I think I gave him around $40 for it. If you have interest we can work out a time and a price.

    I have a stock low seat and a Bill Mayer aftermarket seat I no longer need due to selling my 950.

    Here is an odd request but you never know with this group.

    In a past life I am a Commercial, Instrument, Multi Engine, fixed wing licensed pilot with an A&P license. Due to life getting in the way and changing jobs and locations over the years, I have not worked in this field or had the pleasure of exercising the experience for quite some time. Like it has been 20 years except for a short 1 hour flight last summer. Ouch. :gerg

    I don't want to embark on a full reinstatement of my flying privileges but would love to grab the controls and make sure the muscle memory and the brain function never dies. I also have a wild hair to get a couple of hours in a Helicopter as I have never flown one of those.

    SO, If you have access to anything like a plane, Helo, etc. and want a full tank of gas or what ever is legal these days and have some time on a weekend, This old fart would love a bit of stick time.
