I specially liked the part where he discusses using "The round slide, non-pumper carb". I think what he says about feeling the throttle control more directly is really true.

Don't get me wrong, I love my fuel injection (most of the time) but it feels totally different than my old carbureted bikes .

Thanks for posting that uyp, TinMan!

[QUOTE=rubRsidedown;19810677]Vintage sled show today in Turner.


LOTS of nice iron there.



10-4 on the nice iron, also made for a nice ride over. I waited till the thermometer read 41 and climbed aboard the GS, cool ride over bot with the "onesy" on I stayed comfortable.

Some great restorations for sure, that Scorpion rebuild was perfect.



Another Adventure style sled.



Digging it.....

Anyone suggesting that I'm a little slow is probably being kind!

There were actually two of them...



My lawyer advised that I get right back on the bike and not look back.

Headed for Wilson's Mills yesterday for some camping....took 142N out of Phillips to Reed Mills Rd which will bring me out in Madrid...



Rangeley Lake looks nice in the setting sun...


The night turned cool, with a starry sky....27deg...but by 10pm the stars were gone...
Sunday morning I awoke to the sound of something sliding off the tent...
























no need to blur the plate for this shot...


In the valley of the campground the road was wet but clear..
not so as I headed up past the dam and the higher ground towards Rangeley...




The hand grip heaters were definitley on...and doing a good job...


The colored leaves are so nice this time of year....Sandy Riverjust above Small's Falls...


I wonder if the reindeer know about this....



I guess I'm ready for Recompense....don't forget your knitted cap....

So its BLM's fault! There was a good 3 inches all over everything on my way from Athens to Greenville this morning. No need for me to post a pic now.

Oh, and I was in my truck, just like I shoulda been.
