  1. BUMPED one more time I heard that the House of Representatives is voting on this on Wednesday March 25th. Time is quickly running out. You need to CALL YOUR REPRESENTATIVE RIGHT NOW!!!
  2. BUMPED again. Even if YOUR riding area may not be closed, the people whose areas ARE closed will soon be coming to YOUR area. Is your riding area crowded now? What do you think it will be like if this legislation passes? WRITE NOW!
  3. BUMP - People, please get involved!!! Email / Call your representative and tell ALL your riding buddies to do the same. Let's not let them take our public land away from us.
  4. H.R. 146 passed in the Senate 77 to 20. It now moves back to the House of Representatives. We now need to start contacting our State Representatives! You can find out how to contact your Representative at this link: http://www.house.gov/house/MemberWWW_by_State.shtml I urge you to PLEASE get involved. Ask your Representative to vote NO on H.R. 146!! We stand to lose access to over 2 million acres of public land unless we get involved.
  5. Let's see if we can get this discussion back on track by doing what we can to save our riding areas! Senator Tom Coburn from Oklahoma seems to be one of the senators who is opposing this legislation. Even though he is not one of my representatives, I have asked for his assistance. You can reach him here: http://coburn.senate.gov/public/index.cfm?FuseAction=ContactSenatorCoburn.Home Perhaps we can still salvage this mess. Please get involved! Here's what I sent to him.
  6. Right now it looks like they're trying to ram it through the voting process without any additional debate. It has now been cleared to be voted on. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/vote.xpd?vote=s2009-99 I'm not real hopeful that this is going to be stopped. This really sucks. It may not be too late to contact your senators! Please do so!
  7. http://www.amadirectlink.com/legisltn/rapidresponse.asp S. 22 was defeated in the House by only one vote! Now Congress has reintroduced it as H.R. 146, the Revolutionary War and War of 1812 Battlefield Acquisition Grant Program. How's that for obscuring the content of the bill? Now they only need a simple majority instead of a 2/3 majority. Please help retain motorized vehicle access to our public lands by encouraging your representative to vote NO on H.R. 146. This is time critical!
  8. Hey guys! There's a thread on this very site that you all need to read and get involved in. There is a bill being introduced in Congress that will close down public lands all over the country. Please go here and get involved. http://www.thumpertalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=713076 Right now I'm the only one who has replied in this thread and it's been there for two days. There are links in the thread that make it very easy for you to contact your Congressman and let them know how you feel about this bill. There are even pre-written letters that you can use. It's very easy. Tell all your riding buddies! Please don't move this post. I'm trying to gain exposure to this important topic.

    Upper Chain Roller bolt size?

    Upper Chain Roller bolt size?

    I lost the upper chain roller on my DRZ. It looks like the bolt size is most likely a 8 mm X 1.25. However, when I tried threading in a bolt that size it only went in a couple of threads and stopped. I think the threads may have gotten boogered up when the bolt fell out. Can anyone confirm the bolt size? If I need to tap the hole I want make sure I use the right size. Thanks!
  11. Wrong. If an area is designated as wilderness, you can't go in there with any kind of motor vehicle, not even a mountain bike. Wilderness can only be accessed by foot or on horseback. We need to fight any inappropriate wilderness designations.

    DRZ tool kit stolen and my rain gear!

    After reading your post I decided to put a little luggage lock on my tool pouch. It should keep the honest people out of it. I just hope it doesn't make somebody want to get into it even more now.
