Well, see what it wuz, what happened is...

Back sometime around 2005, give or take a year or two, my ex decided she wanted to buy the kids either 4 wheelers or dirt bikes or some big Christmas present. She asked my advice and I was into 4 wheelers at the time and figured they would enjoy riding 4 wheelers more and be more stable riding on our farm. So she got dirt bikes. But she didn't have anywhere to ride them. So she decided since I had land to ride on, we could "Store" them for her and use them as needed. Well that worked good until both girls took a hard fall. One in sand and one into a dead pine top on the side of the sand. So basically, I got to ride "her" bike... One day, after we had been in possession of them for over a year, she got invited to go ride with some friends and asked for them back for the weekend. When I took them to her, she got mad because the dirt bikes "were too dirty" (and yes, I had hosed them down but not scrubbed them).

So she never lets me have them back. So they sit in her garage since 2009 or early 2010 and she never does anything to them and I went and bought a KLR! So in effect these bikes got me started in ADV!

Last night she calls the girls, wanting her garage space, and offers to give them back to me if I get them running again and store and use them.

So I now have a CRF 100, 150, and 230 in the garage that need PM, fresh gas, etc. She even gave me a bag with oil, spark plugs, and more that she bought for them. Not sure my girls still know where their helmets are and have outgrown all of their gear (she got them full jersey/pants, chest protector, goggles, helmets, and boots to go with them). But these fun bikes have been sitting up for AWHILE and I get to try to revive them with the skills imparted to my by Rev. Jeffrides and the rest of you guys!!!!

Ethanol comes to mind here, might not be so simple as dump old gas and add new. Old gas (crap we call gas) has most likely turned to tar in the float bowls and tiny jet orifices.

Yep. I see at least some quality time with some b12 chemtool and compressed air in your future BW. If you're lucky, the little rubber bits won't be totally shot...

Well, she did say if I have to buy stuff for them, give her the receipts for reimbursement... Glad I caught her on a good day when she had taken her medicine!!! There may be a tech day in my future where I can invite y'all over to whitewash my fence, I mean help scrub some carburetors.... Got my 4wheeler still sick from sitting up, too...

T-minus 3 short hours (may sneak out early if possible) and my obligation to the place that pays the bills ends for the next two weeks.
