Getting Your Bearings.

Originally uploaded by groader

Changed the front and rear wheel bearings on the CRF this week. There is something to be said for sealed bearings. The old bearings didn't spin to freely.
The bike is ready for the Stumpjumper's Desert 100. I am too.
The SPOT GPS tracker might be up and running for the Poker Run on Saturday, and the race on Sunday. -If I have time to set up a shared page.

No-Scuff tire mount/demount tool

I decided to order one of these. I'm tired of taking my wheels to the shop, where the $25 tire change turns into $40 after a bunch of hidden fees (Lake City actually charged me a "lubricant fee").

"Kawasaki KLR650 Motorcycle Crash"

In celebration of the one-year anniversary of MotoBum's backing it in crash during Moto Morning Wheelie Session #43, here's the crash-only segment of that ride.

The broken collar bone ended up healing well. But ouch, don't try this at home, kids.

Goodbye WR and KLR2

They were good bikes. They have both been sold in the past few days (the KLR just minutes ago). I imagine it won't be long before the XT has been sold by us (again). What one bike can I get that will fill the void left by these three fine motos? I will give the first chance to a DRZ400S. We will see.
Ahh, the trusty WR is gone... what a great bike
