I'll be back in MN memorial day weekend. Anyone gonna be out cruising around?
I fixed my head gasket and replaced everything else while I was in there, and just as Seth was done cleaning up my mistakes I had to move out of state without it. Aside from my brother firing up the engine occasionally it's been sitting around. I wanna put some miles on it while I'm there and try to see if it could handle the drive to AK.

Apparently BMW keys are waterproof. Went scuba diving with them in my pocket and they still work!

It was a training course in Hudson. Working on getting certified for upcoming trips and adventures. Definitely was a moment.

For those not following along, the WI guys are planning a few brewery runs this summer. If a few of us go, we could roll down there together.

Hey guys, any recommendations for a decent powder-coating shop in the Twin Cities? Looking to get some rims stripped and coated

I've use Minneapolis Enamel before but they're miles away; anybody used Rob's Power Coating or Powder Coating Tech (in Plymouth)... any others?

Hey guys, haven't been on here much lately. But planing on coming down for the June 2nd C&C. Was wondering is Imola doing their open house also that day? Or are they having a open house this year? Thanks. Oh and anyone know of any 19" VMR 710's in black around?? Looking for a set for the M.

Gary
