General Banter / Volunteering at STAR 2018
« on: June 04, 2018, 06:32:19 PM »
As local MSTA members to STAR 2018, it is customary for us to volunteer to staff STAR. After all, not only are we able to enjoy the roads around STAR much more readily than members coming from outside the area, we are also much more familiar with the area and better prepared to help visitors get the most out of their visit. If you haven't already, please volunteer to help at STAR 2018 in La Crosse, by providing  Dennis Villarose at your contact information and letting him know that you'd like to help at STAR.

TIA for volunteering!

Just got a call from Don Christenson. Unfortunately his brother Steve hit a deer while riding his bike this morning . He is stable at Gunderson Hospital in La Crosse with a number of broken bones. He will need surgery to address some of his injuries but they are letting things settle out a bit before they take action. Please keep him in your thoughts at this difficult time.

Congrats Carl.  I'm driving to Austin for MotoGP in the middle of April and have space to haul the bike to Texas if the buyer wants.

Incredible deal. Must resist. I'd venture it is worth $2K more than the ask. So tempting.... GLWTS.

Can never have too many friends to ride with. I post rides and events on the forum and FB. They're just communications mediums....

Welcome to the forum. Hope to see you on more rides in the future.

Given your schedule, I'm not sure it is a good idea to attempt this. The Rockies represent a high desert range which can receive large amounts of snow in very short periods of time up through Memorial Day. When I lived in Boulder I had to cancel a Memorial Day ride because we got hit with 18" of snow in Boulder. In April you need to think about getting as far south as possible to reduce the risk of getting stuck by weather.

I'd suggest looking for a route to Denver with an option of going across 50 to SLC  if the weather is good. A  back up route would be coming across the south of Colorado on 160 and out of the southwest corner of the state (Cortez) which sets you up to use 12 across the southern Utah.

Never seen it done. I think the only way to get MotoGP on the web is to subscribe to the MotoGP stream or if you have Bein on your cable or satellite subscription and download the Bein streaming app.

Of course you could also come by on Sunday and forget all this web crap.....

Bike Help / Re: Getting a tough fork Seal out
« on: December 19, 2015, 02:17:23 PM »
The only way the picture makes any sense to me is if you have not removed the allen bolt in the bottom of the fork leg that holds the damping rod. Once the bolt is remove the fork tube should slide easily out of the lower fork leg. The fork tubes can not be disassembled without removing this bolt. If this bolt didn't exist the forks would have no damping and come apart whenever the front wheel was lifted off the ground. To remove the seals, the fork tubes need to be removed from the lower fork legs. A screwdriver is all that is necessary to remove the seals. The PVC pipe as shown could be used to drive the fork seals into the lower legs, but not to remove the seals.
