To a degree. Needle in the left carb was stuck part way up. I got that fixed and the bike is running better and mileage improved by 25%. It's still running rich though, but not nearly as bad. I am thinking a rejet will be needed, but I'll leave that until later in the fall. The bike is rideable as it is now.

Just got back from my trip and will start working on my ride report next week. Nortini, I went through Detroit on my way up to Mt Hood from Mackenzie Pass. I turned right at Detroit and ended up on a narrow road that took me over to 26. A beautiful ride. I was also in your area Smithee. Ukiah amd the Sumptner area. I am in Spokane most of this week and will miss our get together Thurday if there is one.

I was in Starkey, OR, over the weekend with the Victory folks. The only non-Victory bikes there were my V*, an old Yamaha Royal Star, a Honda Valkyrie, a Shadow and a V-strom that a guy from the UK was riding. A good time was had by all.

A pic of the campsite:



One of me at the Mt. Emily Brewpub in La Grande engaging in one of my favorite activities (aside from motorcycling):

I'm wasted after a long day at the salt mines. I'll plan to stick at home tonight.

Enjoy your dinner at Taco Bell.

I'm game, but my vote would be somewhere other than Mill Creek Brewpub. Stone Hut has a better menu, BWDIK???

I'll be driving a shuttle at the fair on Sept 2nd so I won't make it. However if you are at the fair on Thursday, waive me down and I'll give you a ride.
