Ohlins, Progressive Ins., and mud
I spent the weekend drilling a clutch slave weephole, installing Ohlins (they are very pretty, nice yellow color) and doing various other under the plastic stuff.
Time to renew insurance so I compared Geico to my Progressive coverage for 4 bikes and Progressive came in cheaper for a higher liability coverage limit. I think I'll stay with Progressive.
I'd love to take the LT out for a ride to check out the new shocks, there were plenty of bikes out over the weekend, but this old farmyard is a little muddy.
Old mud season story: A fellow was riding his horse home from town during mud season one spring. He was riding on the shoulder of the dirt road because of all the mud and water in the ruts. He came across a hat in the middle of the road and thought to himself: "That looks like my neighbor Jed's hat." So he reached over, leaning in the stirrup from his horse and picked up the hat. Sure enough, there was Jed, under the hat. "Mud seasons pretty bad this year, huh Jed?" he asked. Jed replied: "Well it's not too bad for me.... but my team and wagon are in pretty deep."
