The issue w/ the new ride very well could be that it was out of gas...
Not sure though, but i was swapping the stock tank for a monster 6.6 today, and changing the petcocks was a surprise!! You can ride 100 miles on reserve on a ktm! that petcock filter thingy is about 5 inches tall! not so on the xr.
anyway, tis' the season to get ready for the season... tralla lalla la, scoping out the Book Cliff ridge from East Carbon to Green River alllla la laaaa.... beta on the drop to off the ridge to "Woodside"?
(check out that rd along the ridge. it looks dicey dropping out to woodside in google earth, so it could go or could be a backtrack. this is #1 on my hit list) provided i can start my bike!
