Based on Chickenhelmets kidney stone scenario, it may pass if I drink lots of water and give it time. Besides, I have a 300 smoker to focus on at the moment (among other things)

Good score Pete. That looks like the 'extra' tool kit there. The stocker was just a few basics, but there was always 'the big kit' available in the fiche.

About the only thing lacking in that kit of yours is a torque wrench

Hope the tank re-furb goes well. Let me know when you want to tackle the carbs

Also: i snagged some bits off an '87 R80 this week, the guy has a bunch more stuff left that will fit Betty

And also, Buzz must hold out for me to buy the fresh carb rebuild kits, sink 500 into a brand new tank, not to mention the quarter fairing, transferred Transalp tank bag, new brakes, hoses, an alla that. So with that being the case - there is at least SPRING to go through!

But before that - I get *at least* a 400 mile ride.
Current Metzlers withstanding, that is.

That's the sort of shit I like except for the Hardley colors!
Man - am I banging it or what!?
Rode the TA about. Purrs and rides like a kitten. Lots of cool, yet weird, stares. Waiting patiently for the refurbed BMW tank. Life as we know it may come around again.
Awesome weather to boot. May be time to close the aperatures in my lil casa del rojo - regular weather is just too damn nice. .

Glad you rode the TA some. Too nice a bike to be sitting up....
