They're add-ons - better MPG, better throttle response, gets rid of that lean condition where the bike dies when you roll on the throttle in 5th gear. I've had them on my I/S for years and love 'em.

Aren't you the temptress! I'll drop you a line if things work out for me to take a romp in your direction.

Valks have plastic sliders...The only time I have ever had that hesitation is when they stick.. But MMMO in the gas as well as seafoam.Have fixed that problem.. My roll on is right there !!! As well as throttle response..
Thanks for the idea...

Wow it's been a while since I posted in my own thread
Can you believe it's the middle of Aug!!!!

Just been busy on the farm and entertaining FYYFF and other friends...
And of course riding on the best roads in the east!!...

I will get back to posting RR's..

I have been painting our guest bedroom...I really looks good ..
And doesn't even look like it's old self

I will post pic .. Just repairing the lamps that are in the room..
They are a real PITA to fix.. And My first time at this kind of a repair..
Hey they don't have wheels !!!

I also had to do a rug repair.. When I moved the bed in the room to it's new place .. We found a huge burn in the rug ... Well remember we moved to this place in Oct/Nov of 05 .... It's amazing the things that ya don't remember ...

Will ride out to The Super Stop and Hot rod Cafe, tonight to see Benny Wilson band.... And you can bet I'll take a bunch of photos...

Ya'll have a great weekend...

The Guest bedroom ........

Well I finally got a chance to upload the pic...
I did change a few things but no need to take pic..
I had made Pillow cases that match the curtains...
And added a little wickless candle to the barrel nightstand...

When you open the door ,your view...



As you pan around... All kinds of art work,and old books..



The left side wall and behind the door..



And the other wall at the door....



Yes that is a poster of The Sundance Kid
My Dad's secretary's best friend was HIS secretary.. Many years ago.. And she got me the Autographed poster .. So I finally framed it after 38 yrs..



The colour of the room is called {Sprinkler} from Valspar...

Now for all the 5 sockets and 1 switch plates...
I cut fabric up and mod podge it to the walls and the cover the plate to hid in....











I don't know how this one got by me .. NO Parrot!!!




I really like how it came out... I did buy a new dust ruffle for the bed that I still need to put on...And I need to add to the lower curtain...

Those who have spent the night here .. Will notice the bed has been moved ... So one can walk around the bed now ....

I did make the curtains... To bad I didn't take a photo of the Pillow cases that I made ,it really pulls in the look....

LD,

Two things; first Wow that you have done a ton of work on that room (it is obvious that you never sleep),
second I'll be right over. Well it may take me four or five days to ride out.

Doing good here...only took me a month and a half to respondI am way the hell and gone across the state from Pikeville...in Paducah. If you are ever in the area give us a shout. The guest bedroom doesn't have any fancy camo wall outlets or switches....those are in our bedroom My wife does that stuff as well....she is a hoot! Life is apparently a series of opportunities to decorate something.

last time I heard "mod podge" was when I made a cutting board with a teddy bear on it for Mother's Day in ~1977 in Ms. Marino's 5th grade class. did not know it was an "actual" art form. until now. nice job...
