Beautiful pictures of what seemed like a great rally for hardcore riders.

I like your GS750EF. I had the exact same bike back in the eighties.

Test ride after fixing enrichers:

Bike started right up and idle speed increased when I used the enricher. It's amazing how things work when installed correctly.
