Oww.

I can't comment on his neighborhood only to say if he doesn't flush his toilet I don't have
drinking water.

I was sorry I called your FJ an FZ. Now I'm sorry I didn't call it a POS with an orange tumor on the back.

A second thank you to Harcus!
He repaired the pannier rack on my 990A

Fixed a bent ski pylon on my new toy. Since he wiped out my dad's machine shop on the

KMC1 Kevin was just showing up to get a facial on his KTM. He had his new toy too.
Nice red Toyota FZ.

Thanks Harcus!

I meant the orange tumor on the hitch hauler.

My offroad skill level is NOT advanced so the bulk of the riding will be beginner to intermediate - I'm not looking to be hucking off 30' drops (although I could do one, once ) or anything like that.

I do not know the trail system well enough to be a very good guide, so it would be great to get a few regulars together and just get out and have a good time. Also, if the weather ends up being sucky, I'd rather postpone it...the last time I went down there it was 45 and pouring rain and truthfully that is a weekend I'd rather forget! Don't want to do that again....

I'll be on a KTM 530.
Bump. The weather forecast is calling for 100 degree temps both days, so it may make sense to look for altitude to get that down a bit. Any ideas?

You can call it anything you want. Still is what it is.

There can be.

I have a jetting question, I am a carb newb. I never rejetted the DRZ after moving from a few hundred above sea level. In fact, I never rejetted it after I bought it from someone in Mississippi and shipped it to Michigan either.
It runs ok, but when I give it a lot of gas, for example trying to go up a steep trail, or over a tall step, or tree it will hesitate. Also, it smells like fuel a lot, but it could just be that it's so hot when I ride often. I haven't fouled the plug, and it always starts fine, idles fine.
Is there something I should adjust, move the needle up or down, or say some magic words? I honestly don't know that much about carbs and I would like to learn, and you lot are the only people I know to ask.

I've been invited on a four day ride in Idaho, and I want to make sure the bike is as ready as it can be, and this is one problem that bugs me sometimes. It doesn't prevent me from riding, but I worry sometimes that it's going to be a problem at high altitude one day. The higher I go, the worse it is.
