Glad ya caught that subtlety! Britt grabbed it off the road for his dog since it was a fresh kill (wasn't us). He stuffed it there between his bike and crash bar and then when I was taking a pic we both noticed it was right above his "live animals" sticker

I think we all are very giving of other peoples time. Just in different ways. You were giving of my time by posting a worthless post. 10 seconds of my life I will never get back! That adds up when your post count is 2,609! I was giving of Britts time two days ago when I had a flat and he brought me tools and helped me fix it when I was stranded. And I'm not trying to piss you or anyone else off. Just making a point. I would rather waste a few hours on my bike than else where, riding too long is never an offence in my book! I am mindful of Britt and his flaws, he is mindful of me and mine. We are cool with that so we ride together. Anyhow, I'm not mad or anything, just saying he's a good guy, good rider and my buddy so I'll take up for him. And if someone were to make a cheap shot at you, I would take up for you too.

Runs great when it's not missing! The throttle bodies feel much better. But I had alot of problems with my plug wire that I rigged up grounding out when I would go through a stream or other water crossing. But the TB's seemed great. I appreciate the help Bob.

No doubt that they will. I definitely have seen a lot of cool stuff on my rides with Britt. Couldn't ask for a better riding buddy. Get Holmes in the mix and it will be legen... wait for it... dary! Pretty bummed I missed out on that most recent ride.
