That's pretty clever, Silke! I've figured out lots of unorthodox fixes to various problems over the years - but I would never think of that on my own.

BRRRAAAPP BRAAAAPPP BRAAAAPPPP !!!!

it runs again!!! and after putting out a small fire in the airbox (note to husband: easy on the magic juice ) I finally was able to do a little test ride in the neighborhood:







no ride report (even if it's just a short ride) is complete w/o a few old houses and barns





up the Grapevine



and down the Grapevine



they even "fixed it up" for the winter



in case you ever wondered what to do with the old Satellite Dish (I love the idea)



Big Laurel



that's for Banjo - I raise your two barns and give you three


and the one just down the road form us in progress of being stripped down





the light was def not in my favor.... I need to take some more pics before it's totally stripped



just a short ride... but enough to make me smile

Side note... attn Hunter.
If you recall we had a discussion a while ago about lithium mx batteries. I bought a Ballistic 8 cell for my F650gs thumper and was loving all that weight savings up top. Well... I rode out west to do the Continental Divide last summer and the first time I got into the washboard it failed. Story here.
The other day, I finally remembered to tell Balistic that I had a problem, and they are sending me a new one, no questions asked. Actually pretty cool.
Question now is... do I try it again?

Personally, I'm sticking with the NON-exploding type batteries.

Of course, the weight savings is a huge plus if you have to push your bike home.
