Truly enjoying it to the point I will be opening a PP account. I'm a comp n00b.

A tip of sorts.
I raced outboards in my teens and we would filter gasoline through felt at refill.
Once wetted with gas... water will not pass through it. A piece of felt over a make-shift funnel is all it takes.
Alot cheaper than the $25+ nylon socks that fit inside the tank fill port.

The R2 pictured above is in my sights. Got looong legs.

theagaveprince does not blog and is not a forum guy but offered this short report about S.A. on a 250.

Hi OldPete,

That's a good tip about the felt. That's a new one to me. I'll keep my eyes out for a piece of felt. Good thing to have in a baggy for filtering fuel out in the boonies in Baja, Bolivia or somesuch when you're dumping gas from a 55 gallon drum into your gas tank.

I will check out agaveprince's ride report later when I get a chance. Thanks!

Glad to have you along. I'll sign OldPete on the old gas tank along with all my other corporate gas fund sponsors.

I'll give a monthly report on how this paypal thing is working out. I am new to this and it will be interesting to see where this ride report goes.

Kindest regards,
John Downs
