For Spud

For Spud,


Potatoes


Well,

A Girl Potato and Boy Potato had eyes for each other,

And finally they got married, and had a little sweet
Potato, which they
Called
'Yam.'

Of course, they wanted the best for Yam.

When it was time, they told her about the facts Of life.

They warned her about going
Out and getting
Half-baked, so she wouldn't get accidentally mashed,

and
Get a bad name for herself like 'Hot Potato,' and

End up with a bunch of tater tots

Yam said not to worry, no Spud would get Her into the sack and make a rotten potato out of her!

But on the other hand she wouldn't stay home and become a Couch Potato either.

She would get plenty of exercise so as not to be skinny like her shoestring cousins.

When she went off to
Europe , Mr. And Mrs. Potato told Yam
To watch out

For the hard-boiled guys from Ireland and the greasy guys from France called the French fries. And

When she went out West, to
Watch out for the Indians so she wouldn't get scalloped...

Yam said she would stay on the straight and
Narrow and wouldn't associate with

Those high class Yukon Golds, or the ones from the other side of the tracks who advertise their trade on all The trucks that say,
'Frito Lay.'

Mr. And Mrs. Potato sent Yam to Idaho P.U. (that's
Potato University ) so that when she graduated she'd really be in the Chips.

But in spite of all they did for
Her, one-day Yam came home
And announced she was
Going to marry Tom Brokaw.

Tom Brokaw!
Mr. And Mrs.
Potato were very upset.

They told Yam she couldn't
Possibly marry Tom Brokaw because he's just.......
A COMMONTATER

Also out in the sun a few hours works well.

T-63 vs. Mt-43

Here's what the Pireill looks like compared to the Michilin. I'll post up my impressions once I finish off the T-63 and put a few miles on the MT-43 but so far I'm impressed with how beefy it is.

Stripped the head on one of the 4 screws to the bottom plate of my carb. All the others came out fine, this one gave a little resistance and then just crumbled. Is this something I have to special order or should I be able to find a replacement screw at a hardware store?

Lose the stock screws and get some allen head screws from Jetsrus.

Now is an excellent time to replace the carburetor screws with 4mm, socket head screws you can purchase from either Home Depot, Lowes, or Ace Hardware. I replaced the float bowl screws in my carburetor with 4 x 16mm, socket head bolts. I also replaced the carburetor cap screws with 4 x 10mm, socket head bolts, and I replaced the throttle cable retainer screws with 5 x 10mm, allen head bolts.

hmm, make a trip to the hardware store 20 mins away, or put the stripped screw back in with vice grips...

Do it once and do it right. You never know when something like that can come back to bite you in the arse

Following the video seen here ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neTUwS2eIkQ ) I made a new DIY small fairing for my XRL. Puts the wind at my neck, which is much less surface area, and therefore much more comfortable to ride.
