I've been asked many times if my Buell was a Ducati.

Personally I can't tell the difference between almost any cruiser or touring bike unless I can see the name on the tank.

Hell there are lots of people who will tell you KTMs are made in Australia.

I was once told ktm stood for "kawasakis top model" to which i replied "i think it stands for ktm, they are made in austria, not japan"

Buff, sorry to hear about Kevins crash. he is young and will heal up quick. he will be out roosting it up before you know it. I wish him the best and a speedy recovery.

Sounds pretty close to me. Didn't appear to be loading up much. Have much spooge on the muffler at the end of the day? I always preferred my smokers to run just a bit rich. (Especially when new or new top end.) Guess its the old school in me . If mine don't foul plugs or load up badly, I let 'em smoke a little.

That magic button is almost like cheating.


Looks like a great place to ride. Do you guys ride CL area much or is this CC? I've ridden both a few times but its been a few years. Another place in your guys area (south of Charleston) was maybe my all time favorite but I promised to never say the name on the interweb.

I love the magic button, it will spoil me.

The jetting isn't horrible but it spooged pretty bad, there was a line down the silencer about 8-10" lOng. I need to set the float level too, it's a little high. I do prefer my smokers to run a little on the rich side as well. It only loaded up a few times, might be better with the ignition set on sun instead of rain.
