How the hell are ya?!? Been good here. Been easing back into the swing of things. Haven't been riding much, mostly wakeboarding. I got everything back in perspective and slowed down a little. Spent a little extra time with the dogs and some magic hat #9. (vermont micro brew) I was wakeboarding 2 nites a week, riding 2 nites a week, traveling to Maine and wakeboarding on the weekends, then traveling back on sundays. It only took a few weeks of this and I was spent and bitchy. I was wanting to dump my girlfriend to free up that 1 day I didn't do anything so I could ride or wakeboard. I finally just burnt myself out and it showed in my attitude. I got that all straightened out and kicked back. I try and wakeboard twice and ride once during the week and mix things up on the weekend. Been feeling fresher and better. Its good to be back. The fall is comming and my riding season will begin and the boat eill be put away. This will mean 2 to 3 rides a week plus an 80 to 100 mile ride on one of the weekend days. Ooohh, then the winter riding starts . Good to be back and I hope all is going well for you too.

Still haven't identified the exact source, though. Maybe the shift seal is leaking, and not the countershaft. At least it drips from the shifter and not visibly from the countershaft.
Glad to see you back, we miss you're (twisted) personality

People ask you what your doing this weekend and you say, ahhh I think Ill clean the gutters.
You start spending more time and money in the Home Depot than the Bike shop.
You start watching This old house and know all the termonolgy Bob V is using.
You start thinking about decks, expanding them, staining them, making fancy railings for them, adding a hot tub to the deck (even though you know you will be to busy taking care of the deck and the tub to use it ) .
I could go on, but you can see the warning signs here.
Renting rules!!! I dont even mow the lawn .

Of cours alot of these guys on this fourm seem to have come to their senses again when they turned 40 or so and come wondering back, pulled into the bike dealer by some strange uncontrolable force, like fish to their native spawning pools,, Maybe Ill do a documentry on the dangers of home ownership to wild dirtbike life .
Welcome back Mike.

[B]Its like when you go to clean your bike, you think, oh, Ill just wipe it down, then you say, I bet I can get at that gook under the carb, next thing you know your cleaning the chain with a tooth brush and putting armor-all on the sidewalls!
You've obviously never seen Mikes bike. The closest it came to being clean in June, when he was down to ride, was if one of us spilt beer on it sticking another beer label on it
On the side number plate where it says titanium, it was rubbed off and looked like titanic....so titanic it was

Yup, I am just fine. I to am a renter and don't have to shovel or mow or anything like that. I am also a DINK (dual income no kids). Aaaah, life is good.
I do plan on buying a house in a couple of years. My dad is retired now and will need something to work on, so I will hook him right up.
