    Sorry Guys, Not gonna be able to make it after all. My wife had a bunch of family come into town and we won't be able to see them again till Christmas. She gave me a big guilt trip to stay home this weekend. Have a great time. I'll be at Chad's gravel road ride for sure. Should be there about 1:30 friday. Take care. 2HE

    The first death on this trip, happened Friday! Radek and I made it 100 miles north of my house, stopped for a quick GPS to map check and took off. About a mile down the road "no Diesel" in the mirror! Back I went over the hill crest, only to see Radek with bike and puddle. I don't think they did a good torque job on the rear cylinder, looked to be a blown base gasket.[​IMG]

    You guys put on a hell of a good ride.:clap It was my first real ride of the year and I had a great time. It was time to explore roads I grew up on as a kid and ride on some of the roads we use for hunting these days near my family's hunting shack.

    I hope I can join you guys for some rides in the future and stick around for some beer drinkin'. I like beer:freaky

    I'm looking forward to seeing some of those pictures.

    :D ah yes, I recall something like "jump the bridge...."

    My bike comes from a guy who rode his other 950 to Buenos Aires. No reason to worry about him knowng which bolts to tighten

    at least he's not getting a Harley to go to Sturgis... that would be a serious haul from Idaho...

    seeya some time on Friday - I am heading through Sturgis for sure, got your cell # and no clue how to find you, but we'll probably hook up. If not, I'll just be the oddball V-twin in town :evil and head out to mt rushmore and the badlands to do some adventure pretending.

    hey - my XR suspension arrived today!
