Been talking with a guy at work who'd probably go in for a weekend ride if you can find some in-town space. He just bought a Q3 rear to match the front I gave him, wonder what kind of deal he got... 'Course my next 3 weekends are tough. Any Saturday openings in the race/Motovid world shagz?

Somehow I completely missed this at the time, sorry. My weekends are all pretty much shot until mid July. Doesn't mean someone else couldn't pull something together though. ;)

Plugged battery tender into fz09 and told er it wont be long. Hopped on xt250 and road to work at real feel of 16 degrees! Nice and calm. Actually wore tennis shoes to see how well merino wool socks work. They're awesome!

I am a pretty big Darn Tough fan. Have pretty sweaty feet and merino wool stands up to my abuse plus wicks the moisture.

Never tried Continentals before. Where'd you get them done?

Always nice how some new shoes can make a bike come alive again. :banana-dance:

Meanwhile, race bike fork service time over here.

Didn’t get the bike out last year, so this weekend I pulled the fuel, changed the oil and it was due for some new coolant too. Hoping to get to BHF this season.
