Hey Lulu,

This is Christine. I am so thankful we both are ok. I have to say, that I did like your bike a lot! Looking forward to seeing you next year! By the way, I think I paid a lot more for mine than you did for your

Did anyone take pics of the wreck! It would make it easier to explain how this happened.
Great to see you all!



K&C

i tore my acl too 9 months ago and opted no surgery since i'm done anyway. i gave up running 10 years ago, my joints are not young anymore and fused.......

hope you'll be ok and good to hear nothing unfortunate happened to christine. jim aka spafxer (riding the 950 and in orange jacket) took pictures of the first water crossing (the crash site), i did the 3rd and will post the pics later. i remember there is a little dirt on the left of the water crossing; i was tempted to climb up the berm to stay dry. i knew someone behind me will go for it.

2. possy
"Possy" is slang for "squad".
Modern uses include reference to gang members following a leader
"The Sherif is forming a possy to go after Billy the kid(or someone similar)".

Auto correct got me the first time but I fixed it.

I'm not picking up the easy tee up nor am I giving it to you.

Nice meeting you. Hope you heal quickly

Here we go, the rock that helped me go down while grabbing the front brake...


Oh and again thank you for the legs lent for the re-starting of this beast. You be happy to now know its all tuned up so starting not an issue now...LOL The rocker arm was loose (hence the rattling noise for maybe two years...vales went way out of adjustment. pwrtrippin said he could stick a ruler under there...LOL Also I think he said the exhaust values being stuck open...hence no compression. Wiring is being taken care up...should be back and ready to ride in a week or two. Really a testament to Honda, one can mis-treat their bike and it keeps on running...LOL
a week or two, thats what he thinks, I leave for a week this weekend. LOL

One exhaust valve in spec, the other would take half my feeler gauge stack to fill it up. The low compression was the intake valves were part way open since the adjustments were so far out of spec. As for the electrical, I have a few more tricks up my sleeve.
