He went into the Walgreens and I finished suiting up, then cranked up the Tiger....but hold on - whirr.. whirr.....whirr.........wh...click. Effing Tiger starting circuit - she starts right up cold, but sometimes when she's warmed up - no dice. So I waited five or ten minutes... My new ADV buddy came out and we talked a bit more. Hopefully he can join us for a weekend ride to breakfast?

He waited while I gave the Tiger another try - and she started up like there was never a problem. goddam stupid Tiger electrics. Anyway it turned out good because if she had started right up I wouldn't have had the chance to chat with a fellow inmate.

Later dudes
Tom C - That was me! Always great to run into an Inmate. I'm more of a lurker, don't post too much! I'll send you a PM. Glad your bike started! ~Motor530

Got your PM. I'll try to let you know when we have our next DDB breakfast/ride.

I'm glad the Tiger started too. But I am not too proud to beg for a push or a jump!

Just kidding - knock yourselves out.
Everything I do is motorcycle related. How do you think I got there and back? Bicycle in the trailer of course.

Thanks for the congrats guys.

I may be wrong but Don if that was you who donated, Thanks.

And I believe Steven W might be a LOPL FF? Thank you as well.

Hack, That was me... The site flaked out after I hit send, so I didn't know if it worked or not... But your welcome.



On the cycle related news. I think I'm going to try the Adventure loops of the Mountain Man 400 this year. It's a little further south (about 6 hrs drive) than most people are used to, but beautiful areas. Anyone interested?

NO KIDDING! Plus, it has been way to long since I posted an RC plane pic!!!!!!!!!!!!

John had a small landing gear problem the other day.

That is a 12' wingspan and it runs a 60cc engine.

Whaddya hurt now? I thought we had an agreement about that shit.


I'm just sick. yeh... go anyewhere you want whit that.



btw.. stater and rectifier in the hizouse.
The po had put the 14 series battery in el tigre but that didn't stop the not starting shit... Obviously the new rectifier doesn't help with that issue either.... the only thing left from any bag of tricks I saw is to add a few AWGs to the ground and hot line going/coming from the battery. I'm gonna add rather than replace. That's happening when i put in the new rectumfyer. (yes i'm a 13 year old)

I was just in a funk today - no physical probs - even took a walk around the complex today.

I did the rectifier and the stator on my tiger, still I had to wait 10 minutes or so the other day when my tiger wouldn't start after I stopped at the supermarket on the way home.

I put it on the trickle charger after that - just in case.

A little help please ....

Hi All,

My nephew is learning about the different states in our Union. He is doing a project for school to collect post cards from all 50 of the states. So far he has post cards from most of the states but still needs a few. I'm hoping that the inmates here can help him out by sending him one from Delaware.

I know he would be really happy, as would his parents & I, if one of you inmates here would be able to help him out.

My nephew, Ryan, lives in a small town in South Eastern Wisconsin. PM me for his address.

Thanks - Jon

South Eastern Wisconsin? My wife is from North Eastern Iowa (Dubuque). She spent alot of time at her relatives' farm across the river in Wisconsin growing up. and of course we are both Packer fans (though I am a native New Yorker) . PM me with an address and we'll take are of the postcard situation.

Unless he's a Bears fan.... just kidding.
