Just in case anybody is wondering, there are TWO Swan Ponds in NC. The tag is NOT the one east of I-95.

I've got coordinates if anyone needs it.

How about spy cams from space?

Warning: The ABC is moving to Lincoln County in the next three days. If you Hillbillies want to keep the tag, you better move quickly. :)

tag help

ridingdonkeys , I think you should go to kitty hawk and bring the north america tag back this way and get it back in play. I dropped it off there just for you or one of your flatlander buddies. Mr eggy is getting restless and wants to get back on the road. He wouldn't mind landing in lincoln co for a few days. He is sitting right here with his thumb out Oh! he ain't got no thumbs. He's still waiting anyway.

I want to share this grab with my buddy (flasher), he rode with me today to make the grab and the new tag picture. I also want to thank him for putting me up when I rode to kitty hawk thanksgiving to place the north american tag and bring mr eggy home for the holidays.

Rode to the Kitty Hawk twice now. It is 300 miles one way on crappy roads. Even us flatlanders don't venture out there often. I'd say it is more in play for a Virginian right now, as they seem to have some coastal taggers whereas NC doesn't.

However, if I were to do it again, I'd start from up north and run 158 all the way out there. That's the only scenic way to do it...IMHO.

Tomorrow is suppose to be in the 70's here in the mountains!!! Not too bad for December. I'd go after the new one but can't spare half a day to go after it though I will be riding,, just in the opposite direction.

You'd think that with only 92K + miles without any issues but a deer strike (and subsequent frame replacement), that a Triumph would be MORE reliable, but there you go. I guess the problem of a fast idle could be worser

And I brought the XT to SC to pull the top triple tree / remove ignition switch (theft-proof bolts) and generally get her ready for cooler weather.

Had that problem with the Bonnie when I got it. It would hardly idle when I got it, then the idle/throttle started running away from me at random times. Keep in mind I got this bike less than 24 hours before starting a two week road trip. I would back off the idle adjustment screw and it would be fine for a day, then back to chaos. Anyway, it turns out that someone had kept cranking up the idle adjustment screw trying to get it to idle from a 5yr storage. As my Seafoam was doing its magic, it was opening up the carbs, and occassionally allowing it to idle like it was set. The scary part was when it would run away from me while riding, not idling. I felt like a Toyota owner. I'd have to pull the clutch, kill the engine, and pray nobody was behind me.

Easy fix in the end. It's crap like this that makes me really hesitant to go to a fuel injected bike. Carbs are an easy fix on the road. Fuel injection problems give you headaches for months.

If the fuel injection system has feedback from an O2 sensor it could be an air leak with the injectors trying to balance the mixture out.
