You need this!
I thought I was perfectly clear I looked at these and as impressive as
they are it was not what I wanted. I was looking for a geez machine
with storage to putt around on.

Okay, maybe a little hooligan would be all right...

Parts Deux and Tre'

Part 2.1: I don't know French from Hebrew but we got rollin' the next morning and brought it in to Phoenix........where we larned that Arizona firmly believes in photo cop style enforcement of the speed laws.........



Part 2.2: Imagine the horror of riding next to the massive sized Infidel in a three across situation.......these guys did great whether I drove or rode shotgun....real Starship Troopers.........so to speak........



The load delivered, Team U-Haul A$$ hauled it in to the BlueWater Casino and Resort in Parker where.......

Part 3.1: We did some riding.................






frog even confirmed that the BRP (without the limp-dicked e-start option) was a gnarly and manly motorcycle........





Part 3.2: Meanwhile, frog and fano did their best hoodoo voodoo to excise the gremlins from our midst.......



I also attempted to do my part............



Part 3.3 a: I was stuck in the pool area since it was one of the few areas with wireless connectivity for my old-fashioned laptop. Those with the smart-phone 'droid crackberry types could connect at will.........



Part 3.4: Somewheres in here we met other folks from Utard in the race and Tech Check-in was accomplished........



Part 3.5: We ate and hit the hay since part 4 would be an early start for the Team..........

Ipso facto......Jazz wasted the Heat tonight....

Says Infidel "Hey Fano, there would be more room if you sat on my lap.
It's called a Wyoming car pool".


Keep us posted.

Racin'.........

Not me.........let's take our hats off for just one moment........now that I have your attention.....and give props to those of us amongst our group.......that are in it for the competition.........mostly with themselves......and their inner Infidels........who strive to push the boundaries of what they did.........and what they will do..........

I'm a Dual-sport kinda guy.......I want the ride and the scenery and the story.....but these racer guys...... they want something over on the other side of the edge....... and they're going to push the envelope........or the gremlins...until they get...........some satisfaction......

For those living in the present.......

and not under their stairs......

Part 4.0: Predawn activity includes the SE flame thrower and takeoff of both fano and frog ........









Part 4.1: Unseen gremlins lead to a clutch failure and undocumented tumble for the SE....thus resulting in Part 4.15 wherein fano pits first and heads back out into the dust and mayhem.....



Part 4.2: frog and the SE are never satisfied with a DNF so the pit stop is prolonged but successful and frog is also sent out into the mayhem without an auxiliary gas tank....but a working clutch....he successfully fends for himself and scavenges gasoline on the course which leads to the podium for his finish......







Part 4.25: fano salutes everyone..............after his successful race........



Part 4.275: frog salutes you as well........



Part 5.0 finds the group reloaded into U-Haul A$$ for the trip to Happy Valley and the worst air in the country.........somebody put a cork in pluric's rhino...........

Works for me.
Since I perfected the technique, its very easy to start. At first, I couldnt kick it to save my life. I would kick that bitch till I turned blue and was out of breath. If I hadn't read up on the subject, I probably would just hop in the truck and jet to work. Its only two miles so no biggie.

Technique...
  1. Choke all the way on.
  2. Hold Comp Lever and kick about 6 times slow and steady... not to start, to prep/clear the carb.
  3. Continue with down stroke with Comp Lever out until the stroke gets hard.
  4. With the kick lever all the way up, pull Comp Lever in and stroke the kick about 3-4 inches down
  5. Release the Comp Lever
  6. Kick hard all the way through from the top... If it set up right the bitch will scream to life with that one hard kick.
