    Allen Fox In Alpine

    I had a phone call with him a few months ago about my top end- nice guy. He was really busy, so I did it myself.

    Mine is good for two out of the four.

    Xplor Forks - DIY 15min revalve ! Testers needed.

    Dunno who the other Wile E one might be, but I have been enjoying the benefits of the Gobbler system on my bike. I spent some this with these, including a few hours running up and down the identical trail many, many times. To be fair, I also had a new spring on the shock about the same time, but give it enough time to figure out the effect of the gobblers. In short, much more "planted" a bit more confidence in the bike (wish I could state the same for the rider) and better steering. Yeah, I know, how does this make the steering better? I'm sure there's some explanation for it, and I don't have a clue what that might be. I'll never go back. Cold, dead hands, etc.
  4. I wouldn’t call it knarly. Unless I was on a 1200GS or some other phenomenally heavy whale.
  5. Did you ride the ASCENT portion from the highway back up to the top? And yes, I think my skull has thinned in my olde age.
  6. Also interesting about that geography- all the Colorado River water is delivered to us in San Diego via Los Angeles. There's water in Imperial Valley- it also goes to LA first. There's talk about bringing a water pipeline (desperately needed to diversify our sources) over the hill from Imperial Valley, but it's a HUGE project and the environmentalists are already putting up a fight. Understandable, as it will have a big effect on the immediate area around such a project. Just about anything that can be done on a small bike can be done on a properly outfitted big bike with the right rider. But that don't mean it's fun. The bragging rights become less important over time. PS- Where id you pull that historical information? Interesting...

    That darn zipper

    I'd start here: http://www.factoryresole.com He's done a few resoles for me and likely has the equipment for heavy duty sewing. He's a rider as well.

    Military plane crashes in Ocotillo

    I considered mentioning I was not under any form of arrest, the land was free, and "I believe I woke up in a Free Country" until I saw the firepower they had thoughtfully stowed yet immediately available. I then reconsidered and shut my piehole.

    KTM head work rec sought

    I recently used Racers Machine for my 500, and found them to be nice folks and did decent work.

    Which reminds me of this woman I dated in college.
