We like water crossings as long as it is not airbox deep, I prefer to keep my feet dry All of us are very experienced riders who will try anything once

We will be staying at Mulberry Mountain Lodge. We normally stay near Mocassin Gap or in Clarksville but it seems that everytime we get in that area we do the same old roads.

Toss me some suggestions or routes/tracks

Thanks

Finally broke down and bought a GoPro. Got the Silver coming.

Think I will take the $100 I saved over the Black and buy a tank bag to stick my Iphone in so I can use it for a control. Any ideals out there for that?

got to go over to stuckins place and work on this



after we worked on that, we then worked on these steaks!





A romantic dinner I must say



and then the kids came out to play





had a good time..was an easy fix, and was a great meal! THANKS to Mrs Stucking for the dinner prep and to you for the comic relief (he rode the bike with the choke on and came back sayin it was running like crap! ...I holler'd, TURN OFF THE CHOKE!..his reply, 'oh')

Went to Larry's to pick up a new to me wiring harness for the DRZ. Got the old one out and the new one back on the bike.

This was the problem





Now that the new harness is in I still have an issue. When the harness burned 3 years ago I also burned the key switch. At the time I bought a different key switch for $20 shipped which was sourced from an DRZ "E" model two leads coming from it (Red and Orange I think?)



Since the old plug melted off we (Travis and I) wired the switch in direct. The only thing that didn't work was the neutral light which I have lived with.

My problem is that I can't determine (on the new harness) where to wire the switch in. (I'm severely color blind).

This is the plug I used to test everything but the starter. I jumpered the Orange and Red wires (I think) on this plug and everything was operational (including the neutral light) except the starter.



Anyone know which wires (what colors) operate the starter on a DRZ?

Yea got on the bike was running so i was very happy. up the street a couple times then ran like shit Doc said turn the choke off. I was happy it was a easy fix with turning the choke off. But felt like a dumbass.

Thanks again Doc. Hopefully there is not a next time but if there is we can shut the garage door and get the candles out
