For the guys in the DFW area, Lone Star Yamaha (formerly Stadium Yamaha) in Irving TX is open on Monday.

I had a little get off in New Mexico from a tree reaching out and grabbing my arm and pulling me off the bike on a NF road last weekend and when I got home I needed some parts to get the bike repaired and ready to leave for Utah the following weekend.

I called and got hold of Marty Martin, the Parts Manager, (972-445-0825) who was very helpful in getting the parts ordered and on the way so that I could get up and running in time to leave for Utah.

Marty explained that he is from California where most motorcycle dealers open on Monday to be competitive in that market. (I wish more motorcycle dealers in our area opened on Monday)

Long story short, I got the parts I needed, (because I could order them on Monday) got the bike back together and I'm ready to roll out to Utah. When I picked up the parts, I mentioned I was going to Utah for a Tenere Gathering of about 40 Tenere riders. Marty and his crew loaded up a bag of swag to hand out at the rally and donated a nice gift for a door prize.

So if you live in the DFW area, check out Lone Star Yamaha. Even though they are not the closest Yamaha Dealer to me, I'll be going back.

Gunner, it's a good thing you never got hurt and wasn't coming to Utah, I wouldn't know where to put up my tent.

Mark,

We had to cut the Discovery Route short because my riding partner holed his oil pan near Winston, NM. We got the hole fixed good enough to ride it out and get it to a shop in
Albuquerque where they had to replace oil pan, oil pump pickup and exhaust header were replaced. A local welder fixed the Altrider bash plate.

I'm going to hit the far North section of the NMBDR on the way to Utah. We'll post pics.

How's the new house coming along?

Hey Steve,

:D :D Well I guess I need to get there first!

I broke the bracket that holds the instrument cluster and windshield on the bike so I had to strap it down on the bike to get it home.
If I don't have to call an ambulance or a wrecker then it's all good.

See you soon.

Steve

Man he did hole his pan. Time for a Rumbux for that kind of riding. I bet the north section is going to be awesome.


I'm going to check final work on drying in the shop today. Its been painfully slow but my mom has been sick and my son is in basic training so plenty of real life that riding is taking a back seat. Silverbullet stayed over and we got to ride Sunday afternoon he is making a big loop up and across Canada. He may show up in Utah.

Nice of Lone Star Yamaha to open the swag bag! Hope you guys and gals have a great trip. Be safe everyone! Hope to ride with you guys again.
