Well, thanks Andrew!  I don't know who made it either, but it sure is nifty.  

Mine looks just like Twist's but for some reason says "bsd43" on it.   Shrug

Bluepoof made it. She made 5-6 of them a year ago to hand out at the WCRM. I have one in my cupboard Smile

They were hand-etched by her and Peter, so I'm afraid that "ordering one" might be a little difficult  Wink

I have to get some new tires tomorrow, because the XX has totally fragged a set of Pilot Powers in  about 3K miles.

Well, I got back Saturday afternoon. From reading the other reports, there must have been a SALE on chip & seal last week. I ran into about 5 miles of fresh chip & seal on one of the best parts of US 64 headed West out of Taos, NM Thursday.
My trip home was pretty uneventful, mostly just a grind after I got East of I-25.
 
I had a good time, met some great people that I hope to ride with again soon.
Oscar.45, I'll be back in the Gunnison area 1st week of August.
 
Ed, glad you didn’t get skinned up, and hope the insurance pays for new leathers and helmet as well as bike parts. It was good riding with ya again.
 
Ya’ll have a good ‘un now, and let me know if your in my neighborhood.
 
John

There will be lots of pictures. I haven't had time to do any ride reports or picture posting.
I'm going to pull the wheels off the bike this morning, and do some laundry while they are getting new round rubber things put on.

just got home. not with out another mishap.

sunday about half way through arches N.P. the bike completely turns off. nothing  every thing dead.
checked battery connection, main fuse all good. then checked ignition switch.

now i have a tendency to pack on the heavy side and bring things i think i may need. well i hapend to have my old ignition switch with me. so on the side of the road i pulled the tank off to get to the connectors and switch the switch.

WALLA the bike started.    put it back together and was back on the road. only down for around an hour. finished seeing the park.

unfortunately i didn't thing to get any pic's till i got the bike back together.

Wish I could take some credit, but I think Andrew brought the glass out to CO.  You don't have to wait until the 2013 National, the 2011 should be in Custer.

NOPE NOT ME

But it must have been someone who was at the 08 WCR

No that will not buff out broom stick size stick.  In the most remote part of the Ozarks.  LONG day but I made it home. 1 low side. 1 performance award. 1 flat tire. 1st national.  I think I have been hazed enough already!  4580 miles.  I was going for just over 5K but the flat changed my plans.
