Life’s journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting, WOW, What a ride!

I have all the sockets for caliper removal, should have all socket sizes for front axle and the Torx sockets for the newer models. If you have a need for a tire change, and think your bike might have something unique PM me let me know what it is and I will make sure to have the correct tool.

I have tire changer, air pump, impact wrench, replacement valve stems, and wheel weights.

Again if you think you need anything PM me and I most likely have it.

see you at the UN


That's awesome, randy! On behalf of everyone ... thanks! thumbsup

Alas ... I have a covered trailer ... no one gets to see my bike. But the good side is that no one gets to see I have a BMW on a trailer! thumbsup

Yes. cry

On another note Bob (endobobdds) popped by my place this morning, and he installed his new Sena 10S in his helmet, so we're good to go in that respect. My tars were new for START, so they're good to go (added air yesterday), and the tank's full. Ready to hit the road tomorrow - destination Boone, NC. We won't decide our route until later tonight, but we may just take a slow, lazy sojourn down Skyline Drive, and the BRP. Weather looks good, once we get through Friday and Saturday.

I've been trying to get in an hour of seat time daily for the past week, frustrated by rain yesterday and today. Tomorrow's weather forecast looks a little better, and Monday-Friday next week are about as good as you can hope for in the southeast.

Last year, I offered my wife an opportunity to fly to Denver, then ride to Red Lodge. She declined, but this year she will have an opportunity for the full UnRally experience.


Don't fix it if it ain't broke, don't break it if you can't fix it.
