I made the point that shaking of the head means no, nod means yes. You can't shake your head yes. I was told that was kind of an autistic thing to say.

slow jet

I have found that a single copper strand from a piece of automotive copper wire works perfectly. It is copper and can't scratch the jet.

I bought a 125 Honda Elite scooter in 1984, still have it. The CVT is lots of fun, and easy to work on. I just refurbished the CVT last winter. Very peppy ride and feels like it weighs almost nothing.

Passing is great. The few seconds you gain in each passing maneuver add up to several lifetimes by the time you reach middle age.
