Gotz an 82 Silverwing GL500 now, brown. Can't miss the wing, because now I made the mistake of letting the Mrs. get on the back one day. Now I can't go anywhere without her begging to go along.

Got any of those plastic swivel nipples for the KLR carb? I was cleaning it and managed to break one re installing it.

No bags, just a giant translucent gas tank on my 450. I took the picture on a forest road (part of the blue mine cart route) descending down into Bonanza.

The amber pilot light won't come on, changed cords and outlet, I'm using the computer with an old CRT monitor to write this.
Is there a fuse or something replaceable, or do I have to buy a new monitor?

The colors on the west side of Gore Pass were amazing, two days ago.
I have a 21" monitor if you want to come pick it up. OK well it is a couple years old and weighs about 80lbs, but free to a good home, or even a bad one.

Got the monitor apart without breaking anything.

There are several capacitors, but none are round (expanded), nothing is burnt. I keep plugging in the power hoping for a miracle.

Suggestions anyone?

Sorry I missed yer post, must have quoted SnowMule without reading the most recent ones. Thanks for the offer, but I have an 80 pounder now and it's bending my particle board desk.

Hey man!



But is it a diesel? While poking around the net I ran across this item at a government auction. A motorcycle riding simulator. Anybody want to buy it?

Right on, thanks for the info. I thought it was your tank but then looked again and it looked like saddle bags
