  1. Unsure if you’ve been following the story of the two Australian brothers and their American friend who went missing a week ago. There was an extensive search before the surfers’ gear, truck and remains were found. Three arrested so far. Just sickening as many of us ride there and Baja doesn’t need this bad publicity.

    Hey, Kelly, I wanted to follow up on the job a local cobbler did on my boot. I bought a pair of the Gaerne oiled boots to supplement my Sidi GoreTex Adventure boots that I absolutely love. The problem is the Gaerne’s had a hot spot on my left foot where my small toe would touch the side and it bothered me quite a bit. I tried thick socks, thin socks…nothing worked. Dave recommended I find a local cobbler and have them stretch the boot at that spot. Luckily, I have an old school cobbler right down the street. I left the boot with them for a couple days but it still caused me grief. I took it back and they used a different stretcher and kept it wet the whole time (4 days). After I picked it up, I wore them for a couple hours and can tell the difference. I can see where it’s been stretched and the boot feels much better now. Just FYI so you don’t throw in the towel on a pair of boots you really like.

    Dude, your skills were much appreciated. Though my BMW mechanic buddy was greatly saddened that you didn’t read the manual or watch the videos he sent…🙄

    OK, the BMW shock came in last night and Tom buttoned it all up today. Huge thanks, TNTMO. Afterwards, we stepped out for a bite to eat and told many, many lies about our riding prowess.

    The Kug! Were having coffee in Santee tomorrow and I’ll set up an afternoon beer meet up, too.

    Tom is being modest. BMW says it’s a 3.5 hour job; he did it in under half that time.

    There’s only one place in the country that rebuilds BMW shocks because they’re not re-buildable —EPM out of New Jersey. It cost $260 to rebuild and it’s about $100 each way to express it over there and back. And an aftermarket shock probably would’ve cost me about $1200, and believe me I thought about doing that.

    I’m pretty much heading east back to Tampa from San Diego when the shock comes back and it’s installed.

    I wish. I’ll set up a quick meet and see who wants to toss back a cold one and talk rides.

    I’m in town for a week or so. Will definitely make time for brews.
  15. I’m in SD after a long Canadá/Alaska ride. TNTMo stopped by and removed a blown front shock from my big, fat GSA. While we were relaxing at DSM8’s place, new SDAR member Alex (A2) stopped by. Good times, great peeps.
