I will be there. From what I hear they are. Looks like from the videos it will be fine for big bikes.

Anyone planning any rides in the near future?

Unfortunately, I’m basically downtown so it’s a bit of a ride for me to anywhere (let’s be honest, I don’t mind as long as it’s jot [too] cold).

Sold the SV last year so only the klr at the moment. Can do everything well and nothing great.

Cheers!
Josh

Ps. I’m thinking I’ll head out to Daytona in March for bike week if anyone is interested in riding/camping out to Florida.

Question for the San Antonio folks. I bought a Delrin rod so I can make my own axle sliders. Can anyone recommend me a shop that can cut pieces to length and drill the centers out with precision? I'd do it myself but I want precision and I am a stickler for quality since I used to work at my uncles machine shop

hey guys, has interest in this thread gone away? we are coming up to June anybody want to ride?

I will be coming back from Arkansas after the 7th. Let's get a group up for a ride.


Where to? / What kind of ride? How long?

Interest to ride is always there just free time is somehow always rare, hey at least the commute to work and back is now nice :), no need for mesh jacket yet.

New Braunfels Machine would probably do it for a reasonable price.
Where I work at we'd do a good job but the minimum charge probably doesn't make it very economical.

It's always work that gets in the way. I started a new job so the blocks of time off are shorter for now until I get more seniority. I have a rare block of 5 days off the first week of June but we'll just miss each other if you are getting back after the 7th. I'm leaving again on the 8th. What about the morning of June 18, 19, or 20? We can ride for 3-4 hours or 90 degrees, whichever comes first.

sounds good Ken. I just bought my old dr350 back and been running it in Arkansas.

Since the thread title includes "Chatter", can anyone recommend a local weld shop that can modify a header to a customer's description?
(Want the Y moved much closer to the head)

Hey everyone,

Just posting in here so I can be aware of when you folks are doing some rides. I have been riding since 2001 with a break in there of about 5 years. I ride a BMW R1200RT and I normally ride with friends from the Ladies on Wheels club that I belong to.(this is not a MC but a group of ladies who ride together) However I feel it would be fun to get out there and ride with some other folks once and a while.

I'm out of stockdale, have a 76 airhead and an xr650l that I'm trying to get going. If there are any full dirt guys i have some property that has some tractor roads and a tractor to cut more trails! Looking forward to riding again and finding some good folks to ride with.

Hoping to get a lot of riding in on my days off and get back to throwing sparks in the corners and stay dirty. I was a corner carving knee dragged in Europe, but took the dirt over the last few years for a new challenge and lack of good paved roads in Alaska. The three twisted sisters are top priority. Will post up for any who want to join. Do not be intimidated, I am also an MSF instructor so will never discourage any rider. It is all about fun on two wheels.

Are you originally from Europe or just rode over there?

Even though they are close for us, twisted sisters I haven't made yet, so I hope it's on a Sunday or holiday since my boss thinks we have a six day work week. Would love to tag along.
Might require some pace adjusting as I'm not sure where mine or my bike's limits are and ride accordingly, unless I know the road inside out and I don't think I reached that on any roads outside SA.

Nice activity suddenly overall, with a R12RT in the mix we might see more road than dirt rides? Looking forward to that.

Lynn , Not sure if you know Gina from Kerrville. We all ride once a month generally out of Bandera area. These are a combination of on / off pavement and percentage can vary from month to month. Just be prepared for both with stream crossings. Big bike friendly with its moments.

How many acres? We have a local club that leases ranch near Floresville, always looking for new riding opportunities. We have helped other properties cut trails (Hidden Falls) in exchange for riding considerations. Next meeting is 09/11.

Morfic, I was stationed in Heidelberg for three years. Bought Katana 750 for Hockenheimring and had blast. I didn’t want hurt my then new Sprint ST 1050.

Cool, even made it to a good track there, can't say I even got close, then again, what's a XT500 gonna do on a track like that ;)

325. I've heard of yall, I'm the easy sell. My father is the harder one. If I had a dirt bike, the trails would already be cut. I need to get my xr650l going again. I would not be opposed to holding ride days.

Xt500?! That is my dream bike

Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk


Had a '79 model with steel tank (not one of those ugly aluminum ones), rode my brother in-law's '78 prior to that.
Left it in Germany with a heavy heart. (Begin of a 20 year bikeless stretch)
Told my brother in-law he can sell it.
Apparently new owner killed it in a ditch a few years later.
There wasn't really anything I didn't do on the bike. Ran an amazing 4L/100km

New bike I need a drunk uncle to take care of a lot of things, oil changes is probably all I'll service on the F7GS myself.

Morfic, no problem. F700GS is in the family as well. This is the 17 I bought my wife last year. Start work Wednesday and super excited to wrench year round. Well unfortunately the upload from my phone failed twice. I will just have to show you when you come by the shop. Have a great day.
