10-4 on the filter socks - those go over the tubes coming out of the petcock, correct? already got rubber stoppers on my first ACE trip:) I've also read that duct tape will work alright.

I had a very pleasant morning putting the tank back on and and adjusting the throttle and choke cables for correct idle:) I then went out to a meeting of the San Diego Cafe Racer Meet-Up group. A fine bunch of gents with some nice bikes:)

but of course, mine was the prettiest bmw;) (the only bmw)

Then over to Mike's to cook a wheel hub! Tasty! with the hub at 200 degrees and the wheel bearing stack fresh out of the freezer the stack slipped right in. fun lesson:)!
