Walker and surrounding counties are full of them Just have to watch out for some of the indigenous population, They are a bit leery of strangers riding down their road, lol. Also have to be good at defensive measures against dogs. Between IH45 and Roans Prairie off of HWY 30 has plenty of roads to meander.

I wonder how they would react if a rider had a badge in his pocket..... Man it burns me up when someone try's to tell me I can't go down a road my tax dollars paid for.

Finally, with what looks like to be the first sunny weekend in months, I am going to get to take the Hellbitch out for it's maiden ride with me on the seat. After several months of working on this and that I hope to gain some confidence in her abilities. Nothing too far from the house in case we both need a ride back to the garage.

Thank you Sir. I still have a way's to go until I'll be happy with her. My next expenditures are 606's and Highway Dirtbike's knuckle savers. Haven't made up my mind on what seat cover I'm gonna yet.

Ya don't miss a thing there do ya? No Sir. It's a gas leak. I will be pulling the Mikuni and replacing the Needle Valve assembly in the next day or two. If the gas is on it continually drips gas out of the overflow hose until it's all gone. I read on TT that the Oring was probably the problem so I ordered the whole assembly and it arrived yesterday. I took a little spin around the hood today and one thing I can tell you is it sure pulls alot harder then the 01/KTM/400EXC I had.
