True, but "fuck this place is fucking awesome, you fucking fucks are in for a grand ride report when we get back, you won't fucking believe it!"

And you'd shit at some of the roads we've taken; everything from two lane, flat out straight line dead perfect blacktop to devided mountain pass perfect pavement, to gnarly gravel/construction and repair to more potholes and repaired but failing potholes than road, to jeep trail, to abandoned RxR grade, complete with bike swallowing puddle filled tunnles and steel plate covered trestle over a swollen river a thousand feet below, to desert track and loose fist sized rock, steep as shit mountian pass/ridgeline...

Also, the cities are fucking crazy, no traffic rules we're used to other than stoplights, and everywhere else it's every man (woman or child) on the fastest bike with the biggest balls for themselves. Sometimes it's man and woman and children on one scooter...

Also- there's some kids here riding all of this, flat out on heroHonda 125's, two-up, no gear, passing everything moving...and also too, seems like ten to one bikes/cars here, the hot biggest local bikes are weestroms, but theyre rare. Mostly 125s, and scooters, out in the country its twosmoke dirtbikes if given the option, but the previus are ubiquitous everywhere.

Hey TBlume, glad you're having fun. You are living my dream of racing flat amoungst the lawless fecks in SA.

Regarding the Pad vs The Stein.... The original Stein is always filled with loud college students, will new one be the same? ..... What? WHAT? WHAT?.... I can't hear you!

Hey, Enjoy it (of course, I need not say that) Your not missing anything here, it was 25^F and foggy on freeway 5 this morning. People slipping all over. Sorry I could not help you with your camera mount. Did you get things worked out?

Not a day for two wheels on pavement....

Sick of the fog, me and the Mrs drove over to Florence for lunch. Sat on the beach in the sun at North Jetty for an hour or so. 55 degrees!

Required closer study...

Got Gas?
Got Spark?
Got Compression?
Exhaust not plugged?
Timing Right?

Still won't run?.........Those things have a habit of breaking the Rotary Valve. I had a KE175 in my shop that drove me nuts. That was the problem.

If the Planets are all lined up. Moon in proper phase. Relative Humidity in check. Relative Humility in check. You may still be fucked if the Whizzenator fails to circumnavigate the Motengable within the predescribed Longitudinal Orbit with respect to Bergundian Pitch and Yaw of course. According to the Visagothian Rule of Engagement make positive that you have not disrupted the Contact Flange Grommet. You must also acertain that your Phaleolithic Carbon Extract has not become Tainted

Be Brave, Go Forth

Whattsamatta? Like all engines, all it needs is fuel, spark, compression, and timing. With that, it will run. Dial these four things in properly, and it will run well.

Symptoms? Will it start? Runs, just poorly?

More info!!!
