    We just got done making Magnesium blower snouts at work so I got a bag of shavings to help get that wet wood burning.

    Like Al said we won't melt

    Still IN.

    Sat night in a cage. Don't hate me cuz I'm cagin'. I was one of the few riders to Bodega's Tarp Town if you recall. I have a wedding "shower" to go to on Sat afternoon and I don't want to look like I just got out of one. After that Folsum party, I'm headed up unless I get a call that ya'll went home early.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone :)

    I'm out. Not so much the rain (ok maybe a little bit) but I've got boxes full of new goodies I've got to install on my new to me DR650 before next Saturday when I'm heading down to Death Valley for a week.

    Have fun troopers.
