    BTW, just rolled through Ranchita a few hours ago, just outside of town was two orange bikes on the side, only one rider. I slowed to check on them, the one rider waved me off and gave me the ok sign. No tree's, nothing around, not sure what the story was. But orange bikes down again(??), you know how I feel about 'em.

    All bikes break.

    yours had a stuffed up trans, dr650’s blow 3rd gear, dr350’s eat cams, drz400’s consume large amounts of oil, 690’s eat rocker arms, etc etc etc.

    mechanical shit breaks. Thankfully. It’s what pays the mortgage.

    We can always point to little tidbits here and there where something fails, like my CRF-L, but looks at the production numbers. I've told you how many times, when in Moab where there are many many models of bikes it seems like the wrenches are always out on the orange stuff.


    BTW, 13 on it's way from RM. When you putting it on? I'll eat a donut while your working, if I have time I'll hold the flashlight for ya.:ken

    We'll see how it goes, but my hair is bugging me so I figured I'd better do something about it.

    If I screw it up badly, I'll buzz it off and start fresh.

    I've been using a Wahl rechargable for years now. Holds a charge for a long time and clips great.

    Do it yourself stuff is great(kinda), I won't ask the RN to cut it anymore once the REAL shops open back up. I don't want to call it operator error, but...yeah, she jacked it up, NBFD though.

    My reverse mohawk is filling in nicely, thank you.

    Without the virus health crisis,

    I woulda been packing for Moab right now,

    but more importantly the first day of the Master's woulda been today.


    I know these really pretty insignificant compared to what's happening right now, but it crossed my mind today.


    The Blue Burro, what a rock crawler!

    Nice haircut. I could kiss you but that beard is a major turn off.
