Note my own avitar.

Ok go on back to what you were doing.

In my case it is sort of an insecurity issue;
  • Picture time. Let's see...
  • Walk around to the other side.
  • Hmmm... looks taller over here.
  • Take picture. (snap)
  • Delete other photo
  • Post
Sometimes I'm secure... avatar is WR's weak side

Looking for an older 5.9 Cummins 12V to drop in some day.
Then total re-gearing and axle swaps that the diesel can tolerate.

Eting - were you able to calculate/confirm gas milage on the 3fiddy? I was amazed at mine when first delivered. 65mpg ! But after retuning it (richer) it is now around 50 ish... still amazing.

Just wondering.

I may have a spare. Want one with an auto or 5spd? Planning to put together one for the ZEV that'll hold together at 6k rpm's But I keep going back to wanting an M35a2 Bobber.

We should be there about the same time or a little earlier. Doesnt get dark there until later (still central time zone). Hell you could even NIGHT RIDE those trails.

I figured about 10 to 12 PAR folks so far:
Vico1
FBM
Dr Phillgood
WoodsRider & Guest
Orange Crush
Inept
Rotorhead
Capehorn & guest
Gimmie?
Apperson

Others?

Hey everyone, The Navy moved me down here a couple months ago and I am looking for some people to ride with. Just picked this TM 250 up, put some lights on it and managed to get it registered for the road.

Acwells, Turn that plate horizontal lest you get a stout ticket in the sunshine state.
316.2085:
The license tag of a motorcycle or moped must be permanently affixed horizontally to the ground and may not be adjusted or capable of being flipped up.

This law says nothing about where the plate should be located, or how visible it should be. It only says that it has to be horizontal and permanently affixed, ie not a flip up license plate. this is a moving violation and carries a fine of $1,141 dollars. the third offense is a felony.

A very good word to the wize. You can arue that's supid or Ive always run them sidways, they are less dangerous mounted that way, etc but you will loose whan pulled over. Just like lifting that front or real wheel...
big money there... not that any of us would ever do that on anything but a closed course...
Thanks for the info Buzz
