I need to do this to, the klx forum has info on this, with the cold start issue, i turn off petcock and ride till shes coughin, and she starts up with 2 or 3 tries days latter otherwise got to drain carb, this is cold weather related, no problem when warm.

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me! I want people to know "why" I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Go back to driving cars since theyll get in the same amount of trouble and probably don't give a shit in the first place.

I give scooter guys a lot of credit. DUI or not they come into our store in the middle of winter in the ice and snow in Carhartt coveralls and don't make one whimper about the cold. Chalk that up to the fifth of Canadian Hunter they just drank or just pure ambition to get to work or get their business taken care of they are getting it done none the less. Heres one to the hard working post DUI scooter guy thats trying to turn it around

I figure one of them and a new bicycle pump for the tube bag will probably use up the certificate pretty quick.
Tim - I picked up a Monarch 2 legged chair in the Flea market a couple years back. Very comfy and packs light and tiny. It can be tricky to balance on at first (especially after a few drinks...) but I really like it. They recently came out with a similar design called the Mantis but on a more stable 4 legs. I also have an old folding stool (no back support) I can strap to the side cases

Shoot, a rich guy like you should just go ahead and get a Kermit.

You going to drag the trailer for icebreaker?? I'm ordering shocks and maybe a couple other mods and try it again.

I have had a kermit it sit pretty low to the ground also, so I use this

folds down to about 20x12x3 pretty flat and can pack stuff on top of it. I have had one break and sent in pictures and they sent me a new one.

Cool video! The blind water crossings always make me a bit nervous. I dunno, I'm kinda weird in the fact that I like to see the boulders (or super DEEP holes) that I'm about to crash into. Kudos to all of you though. Looks like a great ride filled full of adrenaline.

Tim--Check Amazon or REI for the Alite Monarch chair. It sits close to the ground on two legs and your two legs. Fits in a stuff sack 11" long by 4" diameter. Weight is about 8-10 oz. I've got a Kermit and it is big and heavy and $$$. Will only use it for short rides where weight and volume isn't so critical.

Yea, and the same organization has many organized rides going from bar to bar to bar.
