    Last time I was there I was dragging a bass boat thinking it was a GREAT shortcut to Merritt.:huh That was 20 years ago. I'm sure the road is in much better shape today. Not.

    Add me to the trend.

    I might make the breakfast. I'm overnighting at my cabin at Linoma so I really have no excuse unless there is too much :freaky and I oversleep. We have a group ride meeting for dinner at Branched Oak, then a ride, then after-party at my cabin. I have the four acre island in the middle of the lake. You can just see the cabin from Hwy 6. Now that I re-roofed it the flashing shows. Otherwise, I had driven past that thing forever and never knew there was a cabin there.

    I'll drop by a little later in the morning. Might get to say hi. Assuming we are talking the Waverley bakery?

    Just wanted to share this. Can't mention it on Facebook etc because family already worry about my motorcycling.

    Bandit has ongoing carb problems. Symptom of sitting around through winters here with carbs full of fuel from what I'm reading on carb problems. . Been through 3 cans of 44k and seemed to release enough gunk to block jets more than open them. Sounded like a twin so took it out on highway to open up. Being a dirt rider I must admit to not liking super high speeds on the blacktop......... Thought I'd be clever and hold it open in second gear while braking front and back. Front as well because I worried about overheating the rear brake.

    Compounded where this is heading by running down the middle of the lane in the oil drip area. Oil drips not something dirt riders normally have to think about. Speed seemed to be building up anyway and I suddenly found the front brake locked and the bike skidding out which must have been 90-100mph

    Released the front brake totally by instinct from dirt bike training, definitely not time to think about it. Used to regularly lock the front brake and tr to get up to a reasonable speed as good training for motocross where you're going to win races under late brakes.

    Still slightly shook up. Bandit now has carbs in bits and gets the full clean out today.

    Hope Dr Greg had a good ride on the Ducati following Missouri river. Looking forward to seeing his trip report. Even checking past posts and he's certainly managed to put his bikes on the ground in various creative ways. I've learned lots, particularly about hoar frost!

    I'll start a new thread when ready to head for the hills. Could be tomorrow or delay a week depending on weather and how the I'd the bike goes back together. Ducati multistrada is on the wish list for next year!

    Good luck with your carbs.
    Had a flake wedge in the carb seat yesterday when i rolled out the 650 supermoto and opened the fuel valve. Started pissing on my boot! Did an autopsy and fixed it.
    Dr Greg was at a motel (tent up till now) at Flathead Lake MT, by Glacier.

    Anyone used sea foam for Carb issues? Is it better than other stuff??

    I have used seafoam for carb issues. It seems better than the cheap stuff, but the things right around its price point seem as good.

    Either way, it seems to take 2-3 tankfuls of gas to get most bugaboos gone no matter what you use.

    Seafoam seems to work pretty good, but not as well as total disassemby and cleaning. Gives you a chance to check all of the o-rings and the diaphragm.

    I just figure you wouldn't make it too far into any project without a few of those tasty home brewed beverages. ;)

    White Tiger

    [​IMG]

    Picked up Tiger in Omaha last weekend. Not the XC but it does include ABS which I like for road riding. Can always switch it off for a little bit of messing in the dirt. Had the XC in Iceland and not enough difference in my humble opinion not to save the money. $ 10,284 clearance price on 2011 model.
