That's a great pic!

Yay! That's me My friend's Roadking is next to it. The other 2 guys had to park elsewhere (Heritage, Sportster).

Was the other GS yours, Greg? I didn't get a close look at it.

I was just walking past mine when this bright lad points it out to his girlfriend and says how he wants a GS some day. Felt a bit of pride there.

Definitely a fun event to go to. The burn outs were amusing. The announcer has to get her finger out next time and stop telling us "...In about 5 minutes..." every 10 minutes for an hour before the event actually starts, though

So it seems I'm still having carb issues, I've reseated the diaphragm to no avail and now I'm wondering if I messed up my hoses when I reconnected them, the fuel line from the petcock goes to the lower of the two black swivel nipples and the clear line comming of the tank goes to the upper right? Because if that's all correct then I'm wondering if my petcock is messed up resulting in the bogging down when I throttle up.

EDIT: so I checked the petcock, no issues there checked all hoses, they are in the right spot and I pulled the shim from the needle and made sure the diaphragm spring stop isn't blocking the vent hole, I have vac on the vac line, bike starts an idles fine but still bogs on throttle up, revving it to 5-6k it runs but pops every now and then, I'm running premium gas, pulled the muffler and also tried it back on while blocking the exhaust to see if more back pressure would help. Now I'm at a loss, I have tried everything short of pulling the carb and tearing it down again.

Bob, I'm in the middle of working on my KLR as I just swapped out the engine for a fresh one ('08 bottom end, '96 cylinder/new 685 kit,and an '06 cylinder head... self ported). Bit of a Franken engine. Am not quite ready to fire it up just yet. I have a spare '08 carb I bought off eBay... and a factory service manual. When I pulled the carb off my bike I wasn't thinking and cracked the plastic nut the choke cable slips into. Supposedly this causes erratic running. An Arctic Cat P/N is exact fit, and you can buy billet aluminum (with pretty anodizing :^) for about $20. Check that and see if you accidentally cracked or broke it. Hope this helps.

Whiteshell ride in today

Got a nice ride in today thru the Whiteshell from Seven Sisters to West Hawk. Saw 5 deer along the way, and just north of Red Rock Lake we came upon a bunch of guys with a tow truck trying to pull an upside down semi submerged car out of the water - we stopped for a quick chat... turns out they'd been spooked by a big wolf that ran across the road right in front of them, and they wound up in the lake! Nobody hurt or drowned, but quite something to see! Nice to see wildlife, but not when it winds up like that. A pic of Ilsa-the-she-wolf happy in the sidecar... she so prefers this ride over the KLR :^(

The weekend trip makes me realize that if I could find a workable set of highway pegs, my life might be better.

I was pondering a crash bar as a prerequisite for this, until google told me about these

http://www.iliumworks.com/BMW_Motorc...=19-600&pID=51


With the way my legs do and don't bend, they might even work better than crash bar mounted ones (and be less spendy over all). I'll have to try to visualize it the next time I sit on the bike and try to get a feel for how they'd work.

Otherwise I was looking at the Motech crash bars, as they do not block access to the valve covers

Followed somebody up Pembina past Wildwood yesterday in full BMW garb, on a nice RT with helmet cam and aft facing trunk cam. About 4:00 I think. Quite the show.

Went to the Suzuki demo ride, tried a bunch of stuff the gsx1250se is really nice and practical, and the gsx1000 goes like a stuck pig, but what put the biggest smile on my face was the M109R. When you put the power on in first and second gear the whole bike lifts a couple of inches and takes off, the amount of torque that thing has is absurd. Sadly I can't justify that bike as its only purpose is cruising around town.
