    Was wondering when the announcement was coming.

    Hogfiddles the mind reader. If you hadn't said anything, I was going to ask tomorrow...

    Tomorrow being the "only 4 four months away" mark!

    Hoping for good weather, might ride up there this year.
    Maybe this time I get to wash my xsr?!
    Still haven't done that since I got her.

    We also have to start a "fuel for the tractor" fund.

    But you knew that already didn't you Dave?
    No big projects for this trip (for me at least). I'm undecided as to which bike I will bring (weather is a factor), but there will be an oil change on the to-do list. Otherwise I'm willing to pitch in and help with anything.

    Never know what will end up needing done with mine! Crazygnat has been going out of his way to help me get my bike sorted out, waiting on valves now. After that I need a battery and that should get it going. But we have a small list of things we want to try to get done such as clutch cable, replace choke lever, replace speedometer ( if I can find one by then), might be replacing throttle cable, and I think there are a couple of other things I'm probably forgetting again lol. And I'd also like to try to give it a good bath as well!

    I guess I'll be the one to pick nits: it seems like they spent more time soaping each other up, and that bellybutton jewelery looked like a big scratch hazard. Could we get them to put the coveralls back on, for safety's sake?

    Dave, I def want to see a carburetor bank taken apart, how and what to clean etc.
    Wrenching is more fun but unfortunately bike needs a well cleaned and working carb.
    Also, fuel level adjustment. Always good to see a pro do it and learn tips and tricks.
