Check me if I'm wrong Sandy but that caliper is in fact installed backwards right?

Must have been that place up north that used to own a car dealership.  LOL

I won't mention which dealership did this but........

 guy goes in and gets new tires installed and this is how his bike was returned to him. He felt someonthing off and returned to said delaership immediately

They had one of their "mechanics" go look at it and ride it and make the claim nothing is wrong

Customer calls me, and ultimately against my advice rides bike to me the 30ish miles

this is what I found!!!!!!!!!!

fucking idiots!!! too damn many fucking idiots....

I do have them on the national one below.

So when is it to many. Well if you go into the garage and you don't know which one to ride that day. You are one short.

Sounds about right!!

Have a display hanging in the shop with pictures of the 50+ I've had in 60+ years.

What a great idea!!  I may have to work on that given I'm pretty sure I have pics of all my bikes.

I wish I could have kept all the bikes I've owned over the years.  I have usually had two though....a cruiser & a sportbike.

This past season was the first time since I started riding that I only had one bike.  Next season will likely be the first season that the two bikes I own are BOTH cruisers.

A Harley may end up in my stable at some point in the future also but time will tell.

Out of curiosity roughly what does it cost to attend this event?

A buddy of mine is trying to plan a trip to Hill Country this next summer but depending on the cost it may be worth it to tie it into this event.

I have a motorcycle trailer for sale.  Bought it but it won't work for what I was looking to do with it.

More information upon request but the whole trailer has been gone thru.  Wiring is solid, tires are great, and body work is in great shape.

Last owner took it out to the East coast & back this past summer with no problems.  Looking to get $650 or best offer.

PM me or contact me via the information below.

I go thru Stark on the way to our families cabin in Pine City.  Part of it goes thru Good Lake Narrows....CR 8 or Cedarcrest Trail.  Nice road to see Fall colors when they are in bloom.  The Rush Point Store is a nice place to stop for that small town feel.

I am trying to revive the first chapter in MN of this group. I need 6 other people. Please spread the word. Post up if you can help....the deadline to save the Chapter is fast approaching (mid-August)!!!!

All that is needed is a fire service affiliation, a motorcycle, & license w/motorcycle endorsement. But even some of that might be able to be worked with if you don't have it at this moment.

An excerpt from the international page:

"We are an organization of over 400 Chapters and 10,000 people, the largest and oldest Firefighter based MC in the world. We are the ONLY organization that I am aware of, of our size that has a perpetual memorial in place as we do. Our members are spread across 4 continents and speak over 7 languages."

I hope there's at least six other people I know or know someone who would like to join me in this great organization.

So is this happening this year or has it already passed?

I had it on my calendar but think I carried it over from past years.

I went thru yesterday too. I know what you mean about half the state being there. LOL

I thought everything was in great shape and will be a lot of fun to hit during a weekday when there's no traffic. We continued on up the North Shore and hit Highway 1 up to Ely.

That road has a couple good stretches but was in pretty rough shape otherwise. Hopefully the construction zones they have set up will be them repaving the road so it will be good for next season.
