Gunny is here, you can start now LOL

Gunny is here, you all can start now LOL One of those gregarious types who is told I smile too much. Living, riding and working here in upstate NY. Realizing I don't get to ride as much as I want. Working for a company that lets me play with the equipment sometimes to make cool little things for the bike, now if I could just get a handle on the tig welder for doing aluminium .... I've put around 11000 miles on My KLR since last fall, the KLR is up for a few months while I do some maint like the doo and get my hardbags fabed up and installed {20mm ammo cans} I'll ride with anyone, whether they ride a KLR or a GS, I don't care, it's the journey, not the destination that counts in my book. Ya got a great site going here, glad I found it .
Me at the July 4th, 2006 Pride ride here in Upstate NY, a benifit ride for toys for tots.

Coolness, I'm going to try and make a set at work, I found a 1.25 wrench I've never used in my tool box, they say thats the right size wrench .... idk, I'd have thought it would be a metric size, any thoughts ....

Welcome, Gunny!

Actually, you're right, it is metric - 32mm, but a 1.25 converts pretty close.


Just wondering... have you been to the Adirondacks on the KLR? We need a ride report, OK?

More fool stabilizer, please.

The dak's, I haven't had the KLR up there, but I could give you some old ice climbing trip reports

Great, 32 mm, now those I have several of in the tool box. I have lots of metric tools for my side, hobby biz, rebuilding air cooled porsche engines.{more hobby than money maker} I'll just heat it and bend it for a 7/8's dog leg. I got the doo on the way, once I have it in hand I'll send ya a pm about the bolt, thanks so much, I really appreciate it.
