OH MY GOD, I don't believe it. Time to update your sig...maybe the Lammy needs to go?

Jim, we're doing a going-away Pachaug Camp & Ride next weekend (7/19-21). Try to get down for a ride on Saturday if you can (you don't have to camp). Otherwise, there are plenty of folks here who can meet during the week. Hell, we can do my easy dirt road loop together...I get out early on Fridays in the summer

The scooter I always wanted will never be for sale. It also might never run again

Ouch, that'll slow down the process a bit.

That's because you forgot the coffee and donuts for the Vin check Troll that lives in the garage on Ernest st!

Sat Ride

Tomorrow is going to be my day to ride... (limited time pass)

Unless someone wants to do something different..
I propose a 10am departure from the Dunkin Donuts on Rt 7,
just north of 295.

I plan to wander to the North West corner of RI...and possibly down into CT a bit.. and then take Rt6 or some such thing back home.

I will be doing some known and some un-known sections...
Can be BBF if needed.. (the bike friendly kind...not the other kind..)

Not going to make it. It looks like I'll be doing the boat/beach thing, clouds or not.

Riding around in the woods last Sunday.
The day was very hot, and I stopped to rest after a rough section.

First time I have ever heard a full boil going on in the gas tank.
Is that normal?
Freaked me out!

I checked my coolant level and it was fine...

Yamaha WR-250R?

If so, the coolant reservoir is situated on the left-hand side of the fuel tank.
That's my guess as for the boiling sound.
