    Bollocks...not gonna make it. Was looking forward to it as lot of fun last year. No bike! Still in shop waiting parts. They broke a cam shaft gear tooth after doing a valve adjustment. Still not fixed.
    So going out of town Sunday PM for work instead.

      Mechanic got the anti-backlash spring miss seated and when torqued down it stressed a tooth which later broke off. I've wrenched and maintained machines as a life long career and broken and crashed lots of stuff in the process. I'm at the point in my life where I can afford to have someone do the wrenching and help them earn an honest living. I could just as easily made the mistake and then I'm on the hook to fix it. Buck's made it all right.

      Fair enough. I just paid people in spring to put my new roof on. They screwed up some things I had to fix, I'm up to twice getting on the roof with tar and nails. It still was easier than me doing it. Hiring people to fix your things is rarely perfect, as your job is just another among many...no personal attachment, " low give a shit" factor if you will...

    I'll be going to countryside for Guzzi breakfast at 10. After that I'll be riding to the start location for DGR...

    i also registered and even donated some $. I thought it seemed a bit condescending myself, hope this doesn't turn into a bunch of self rightous fuquetards that need to have a regular bowel movement to get right again!

    I officially signed up through the link for the Rochester ride. And, yes, it apparently got more snobby than the past two years. They actually have had one of those goofy pics with the KLR Skyfall rider saying "ride anything but just wear a tie" or something. I hope this event doesn't "go toolbag" on us. BTW, it starts at 11 am at the coffee place. Ride any motorcycle type.

    The ride is Sunday. I'm getting some questions about "is it okay to ride x bike?"....the simple answer is YES! In the past what I've noticed, it isn't the bike that makes someone look out of place. It seems when someone comes not dressed "distinguished" they draw more attention to themselves. The DGR is simple: put on a shirt, tie, suit, or even more outlandish...get on whatever motorcycle you want and do it!
