Last time I rode wad a couple weeks ago, took the YZ out for a couple hours. It was cold and muddy but I didn't mind.
The little TW is doing good, except I can't leave the carb alone.
now it has a bog I can't seem to get rid of.

Garage night

Got up to the garage tonight to install my sons GPS. Felt good to work on the bike.


I really like these mounting brackets from Twisted Throttle. The lighter socket is nicer than the ones I have on my Strom.



The GPS mounted.




Even got to throw a leg over a couple of them. Took my freinds trike up and down the driveway. Cheap thrills.

Good news! Congrats buff, sounds like you won the war after a few hard-fought battles. Good luck on the rebuild

I haven't ridden since November. I'm knee deep in a kitchen tear out. Completely gutted. I promised the missus I'd get that done before winter is over. New floors are in, cabinets are in boxes in the living room and the range/microwave is on order.

The nice thing is after this is DONE I can certainly make my case for a new bike. I'm thinking Tiger? Scrambler? Hmm...

Took the Wee out for a 60 mile jaunt on Thursday. Man it was great to ride again. Will probably be out for awhile this afternoon.
Great news Buff36 on getting Kawa to fix the bike. Kudos to Kawa for stepping up to the plate!!

That's good to hear buff, it's sad you had so much trouble getting them to fix it. I bike that new, there should be no question.
