I found a message in my e-mail telling me that I had "A new Private Message" here
I just had to look, yep some fella from AU. has a bad set of bearings in the steering tube and he found an old thread of mine. Since I'm a good sport I went and dug out the drift I had to fabricate to do the lower bearing set. I made some measurements - took some photos and sent them on their way with a few words of encouragement.
I haven't been here much since I sold my KLR's. I had 42 good years riding all over the continent without ever getting hurt and I let things go at that.
I was looking at some threads and pictures then noticed some familiar names (like you Tom) and thought I'd say hi. I still do the fish guide thing so I drive a very trick jet boat through some very tricky places and........... Still have to do the 150 mile round trip snowmachine rides to the cabin during the winter so I get all the riding I need.
It's not fun riding though, it's usually hauling either fuel or building materials on a 14' freight sled. The picture is me leaving with most of a 12 X16 storage shed on my load.
Between the sheeting and metal roofing slabs etc. that was 1100 pounds and the rivers were terrible this past winter. It took 2 runs to get things out there. other loads feature fun things like drums of fuel and 3 of them makes a load.
Now that I've updated my password I'll stop by now and then to look at all the cool mods, of course it's been there done that here but I love the pictures.
