I'm probably out for this weekend.
I'm working tomorrow, and maybe sunday too.

I don't know when I'm gonna have time to get the bike ready for LOL on the 29th - I'll be out of town the next two weekends

Geo will sabotage my bike for sure. he tried to get Colin last year

over the last few weeks I've only had 1-2 hrs between when I get home from work and go to bed. and the wife gets extra pissy when I spend most of that time in the garage, and then also go riding on sunday. something about her having to do all the baby stuff by herself I guess. she shouldn't have applied for that job if she didn't want it

Its starting already? Man mine didnt start till 2.5 yrs of marriage. Tell her to go to work full time Pay all of the bills, carry the stress of paying all of the bills and making sure they are on time and keep the budget balanced! I bet shell change her tune, thats how i got my wife to shut up, also i kept track of all the money she spent compared to the amount i spend per week and guess what she gets more than i do, also the amount of time she goes out, it turns out that the 4-10 hrs a week the i go riding ( thats the only time i do anything or go out) again she beat me. She avgs about 10-16 hrs per week doing her shit. Just do it, put it in excel and then get about a months worth and when the argument comes up stuff it in her face, Its funny my wife is taking a algebra class and made the comment to me how universl Math is and how absolute it is, that the numbers dont lie, well i showed her the numbers and made sure i Paraphrased what she had said as i showed the(NUMBERS) to her. She has Backed off majorly now, especially with the money shit! From One AL Bundy to Another do it for awhile to cover your ass. Marriage shouldnt be that way but it seems that alot of women grow into that shit once you have a kid..

my wife actually isn't that bad about me riding as long as I let her know ahead of time what the plan is.

she is rather retarded about money though. doesn't understand that you need to pay off high interest debt before saving money in a low interest account. always busts my balls about being too generous and selling things too cheap, even when she has no clue what things are worth. always accuses me of wasting money on bike parts. in the last year or so i've spent maybe a little over $1k on the DRZ - but I've sold about $14k worth of parts

so yeah, maybe i'll start working on a spreadsheet

Mine always gives me shit about parts, Its funy cause i still am ahead on all of the parts ive sold over the last 2 yrs. She spends money on, I dont know what the fuck she spends money on, i do know that it goes fast with her and nothing to show for it. Us for instance have a few quick grand at our disposal by walking into garage and selling parts. Women, i still think they need to get 1 hard overhand right punch and layed out on the floor when they turn 16yrs of age. That will be their indoctrination of being an adult and will show them that if they do really stupid shit or get out of line with people, these are the consequences. I think there would be less divorces and arguments between couples,and women would think twice before opening their mouths if they want to rattle off some stupid shit!

If you can't find anything else by then, I have a complete spare rear wheel off my KTM. I'm not sure how close the spacing and axle diameter is on the Husky compared to the KTM/Husaberg, but you can give it a try.

I will give Robert a call and see if he still has any 5" rims. He pulled a few off his bikes to put on 5.5's in 06-07.

I will let you know what I come up with.

No, it's silver, and I'm not actually looking to get rid of it at this point. If Geo doesn't need it, I will probably hang my rain tires on it as back up for Springfield. Being that it is March in the Midwest, I think we have about a 50/50 chance of a wet track.

I would be surprised if its gonna work but I'll cross my fingers. Wish I had a berg then Colin would be able to hook me up all the time.

I would need it too I'm sure that monster would up my crashing at least 50% I crashed the 250 enough.

You know I wouldn't do anything like that. I just wanted to show interest in case you didn't want the wheel..

Euro bikes don't share anything with non euro's. Their snobby like that.

No worries Daniel I'm just messin with you.

BTW I just raised your rate to change tires for you. Better bring more beer next time.
