    Is that Lookout Pass at the border of ID and MT on I-90? Looks familiar.

    Thanks Mog and Mognurse!! Steve and I had a great time. He's probably digging into his doo already.

    There were a couple of yee haw moments on the way home in the wind.

    I could tell the evening fire would get interesting when DieselTwin threw the stopper to the bottle of McCallans in the fire when it was first opened.:eek1

    I'm still burping up them well-done microorganisms....

    Being an old dirt biker I'm in the habit of checking my petcock (no pun intended). It seems as though I must have turned it off on Saturday night in a drunken stupor. or not. :wink:

    No oil leaks so far. I figure it's good.

    No. You're good Mogwai. FREEFLOW and I are just testing a new gasket sealing system by the Bounty paper towel company. :rofl

    Not only should you look for leaks, you should check for skid marks. :zilla

    All I have to say is I am leaving right now to go get a new tube for my back wheel...the bottom part if flat.

    Air leaked out some how and the bottom part is flat....how else??

    Must have pinched the tube with a spoon or something. What is Shelly doing...I need some help!?:D

    Just got done changing the fork springs and putting the new risers and bars on....hopefully get the back spring, pegs and new tube in today or tomorrow. Need it ready to go by next thursday...leave for Montana.

    Before you go through the trouble of changing the tube, make sure the valve core is tight.

    You might want to put a heavy duty tube in it. They are a lot harder to pinch and don't puncture as easy.

    I will have it out today....It might be around the valve stem...if you remember it was kind of crusty there.
