Bubba, did you get your but in the sling again? It's a PC world. Just a bit too much 'political correctness' going on here lately. Everybody seems to be getting their feelings hurt and crying to Mommy. Maybe it's because the "Mommies" have taken over running the forum. (Hope I didn't offend anyone)...

Got up, went for a run, and came home and started working. Mid-day I went with Loonette to work on setting up a show we are putting on for a fire department benefit. Came back and worked some more. Went out for a ride on the ZRX to familiarize myself with a couple hospitals we run to that I haven't...

If you were to measure how better it was the result would be a lot. A lot of better.
I'm not sure, but I feel you might be saying better.

Got up early and bought a couple dressers for 10 bucks each. Going to the gym next, and going out to see t-bonee in Cincinnati this afternoon with Loonette and my kids. Yesterday I took a map test with the fire department so I could start drive the medics and rescue truck. I passed, so next week I t...

My father-in-law rides one, and he love it. He had no problem keeping up with me when we went for a ride together, which surprised me being a single thumper. Looks real retro. People always ask what year the thing is, and are shocked to hear 2003.

I lived in the Dayton area for a couple of years; there were probably only 30 days out of the year where it could have been stupid to ride; the rest of winter was kinda cold, but it didn't snow a whole lot. If you don't mind rain and cold, you can pretty much ride year round there. Granted, this is...

Alright, I spoke to soon last time......

But not anymore. Loonette is now a firefighter! She passed the state test last night. Good job honey!

She just needs to recover from the hangover from celebrating now.

Add to the black ice idea cold rubber. It remains more hard and less grippy. I stay off the roads below 35 F myself. I've seen bike out in much colder though.

My wife the firefighter

Last evening Loonette took me to the local fire department holiday party, where she received her official badge for the fire department. A big congratulation is in order! I'm so proud of her for the work she’s done and the dedication to reaching her goals. In the past year she put in the hard work t...

Until some savvy entrepreneur starts a garage-rating business, the best solution may be the oldest one: asking for a recommendation from someone who is knowledgeable enough to distinguish between good service and bad. Just remember that a lot of people don't know quite as much about cars -- or thei...

Thanks for the thoughts. I was planning on getting the other stuff done anyway, and it is overdue. I have the same plugs in that came with the bike new. I have a spare set, but I never needed them. I change the plugs, get the carb sync'd and check the valves then worry about the can.

Just hop on now and head south before ya can't ride out of there. GA is beautiful in the fall. Just scoot on down here to our nice 72° and ride your heart out. As long as I have kids here and commitments here as well, I'm sort of stuck, but I can't say I'll never move more south so I can ride more....

Sudden change in performance

About a week ago I was riding my bike and there was this pop. It wasn't loud, but I noticed the power seemed to drop a bit. After that it seemed like the muffler was a bit louder and also I can hear the decel popping much more than before. It is able to respond as usual when in the upper RPM range a...

Last big ride for the season

Maybe my last big ride yesterday for this riding season. Loonette and I took the bikes about 40 miles south to a favorite coffee stop of ours, and through some of the little twisty spots we love. I poured a bit of stabil in the tank, and had the bike all cleaned up for the long winter. All winter th...

I have unlocked this thread, upon Loonette's suggestion.

I also removed the fight from within the thread. This thread was created to share th...
