I keep my garage at about 50 degrees. It was certainly running fine in much colder temps when we did that last tour. I lubed the chain but that didn't help either.

Well, if lubing the chain didn't fix it, you're BONED!

Just a stupid question, but you aren't leaving the choke on by any chance are you? Mine will stall at the slightest throttle once it's warm enough to run without it.

well... just sayin', you might become a "glass full" kind a guy if you change your adv signature. Not likely to "get a full (gl)ass" if your come on line says... [add a sentence here]

"hey baby, did you here the one about Rush Limbaugh and birth control?"
"Dick Cheney walks into a bar and shoots a liberal women in the face and says..."
"aslkdjflasdofij!" (that's the name of a liberal volcano from last year)
"etc"

anyway, let me know when your up for another blizzard ride, and what your jet-set is if you know it!

I would check the needle clip if it didn't slip. Sounds like your bike went from running good to not running suddenly.

Any Utard Snowmobilers

So are any of you guys snowmobilers? My bike is put away for the year but my sled is itching to get some powder days. I'm heading out this weekend to check out the snow pack in the high unintas.

But Kev, poking a stick into the eyes of "Liberals" is one of those small pleasures in life..... I don't know, I might be able to change my signature line, if I could think of something even more ironic.....

Besides, I'm very optimistic! For instance, I always use the irresistible pickup line "hey baby, I really want YOU to have MY abortion!" But wait, does that mean I'm really more of a Libertarian?!

I'll keep you in mind as soon as I see some snow in the forecast!

I'm happy to pay for gas if you'll haul me to the top of nice snowboard runs!

If you got your own sled to get your gear there I'm game. I would bring some skis and trade laps all day. My sled is a powder machine and no good for two up unless its a real short run.

What? The "Hey baby I'm a man and know what's better for your body than you do" wasn't working anymore?

Well, I'm a fan of the Crocodile Dundee pick up tactic, but it hurts my face!
