    The plugs on the Tiger were pretty well worn at 12k miles.

    Well there's your problem, you're only using 3 plugs! You need to step up to 4 like our bikes!

    I have a dilemma. I've rented an aerator for tomorrow assuming that we would be able to borrow a trailer to pick it up.

    Anyone in the 614 have a utility trailer I can borrow? Call me at 614-five.six.two-2563 if you can help out.

    I'm 100 miles from you but if you are stuck you can have mine. If you want it I will just unlock it, come and get it. 2" ball / 4 wire flat. You know where I live.

    I have no cell service right but you are welcome to my mow trailer and/or truck, I'm about 45 min from you.

    Should have asked, I have an aerator you could have used.

    I forgot what GPS I had. It says it is a 550. Dox approved at the time.
    I think 200 off Amazon
    The Mount was about 130 from Touratech.
    -It tells me how to get home.
    -Custom routes are made to werk.
    -It finds Gas Stations when the Low Fuel Light is on.
    -It is weather resistant
    -No prob with power (turns on and off with the Ign.)

    I just put the Heat Controllers on the other day (see the knobs?).

    Mikef,
    I have not done the airscrew adjustment. (no need??). I did do the "15 HP Add on" though. Short your Clutch Switch. You will be impressed at low end. (Super Sport Mode). It now has Normal Hooligan and Sport Hooligan modes.

    Sion's (First Annual?) Big Hock Hollow Ride


    what is it?

    a paved road only tour of the Hocking Hills and Tar Hollow areas...175 miles of some of the best (but lesser known) roads in the Lancaster-Logan-Chillicothe corridor...


    when is it?

    Sunday, September 30, 2012 @ 11 am

    where is it?

    Starts at the Tarlton Market in Tarlton, OH
    located here: http://goo.gl/maps/mnk65

    Ends at the Millstone BBQ restaurant in Logan, OH
    located here: http://goo.gl/maps/rRRtj

    featuring:

    about 175 miles of scenic, twisty roads
    gas stop at about the 95 mile mark

    who's invited?

    any and all with a two wheeled machine capable of sustained speeds of 50+


    so, who's interested...?

    </td></tr></tbody></table>
    Gas:

    the gas station at the Tarlton Market has ONLY 87 octane gas...so you may wanna top off in Oakland if you bike requires a higher grade. Or carry a bottle of octane booster.

    Oakland gas station is here: http://goo.gl/maps/lhQTu

    the gas station at the halfway point carries 87, 89 and 93, so no worries there.

    Rules:

    I have only two rules and they're pretty simple.

    First rule is about helmets. I won't insist everyone be fully ATGATT but I do think everyone should be wearing a helmet. I don't expect that to be a problem with this crowd, but I wanted to put it out there just the same.

    Second rule is that, if for any reason you have to leave the ride before the end, please tell me (or someone who will tell me) so we're not waiting or looking for someone who went home.

    Other than that, I'm sure standard group ride etiquette will suffice. I intend to do a quick head check at every stop sign and red light. I pre-rode both legs within the last 10 days and there are only 3 redlights to deal with. 2 of them are the temporary type due to bridge repairs where theres only 1 lane.

    Finally, here's my cell phone number 740-three-oh-4 one 5 niner niner. I'll be in Tarlton by 10:30 at the latest. If you happen to be running late and want to call/text and ask us to wait, feel free to do so. In the absence of any calls or texts, we'll be pulling out at 11. The gas stop is at 95 miles or so and we should get there somewhere between 1 and 1:30. I'm figuring about 15-30 mins for everyone to gas up and then the final 75 miles to the Millstone should get us there around 3:30-4:00.

    If anyone who cant make the ride wants to stop by The Millstone and have a beverage with us, thats cool too. We should be pretty easy to spot.

    You're welcome. I had a blast. I'll be driving down next Friday night and riding both days at the Baby Burr. Should be another great weekend.

    You going to be on your husky?

    It's been working well for me too. I used to kill phones every 3-6 months before I bought the Casio rugged phones. She does everything I need. Like Mike said, not a Cadillac, but it keeps working.

    Total nerd point here but the original line (which is not exactly the same, but close) is from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, it has been spoofed a zillion times from Blazing Saddles to UHF...

    Thanks to all for the offers of trailer assistance. Due to tight scheduling requirements I wound up renting a trailer at U-haul. Lawn has been aerated and I'm now nursing the blisters with a cold, beer filled glass at the local Winking Lizard. Wings already ordered.

    Thx again.

    For any youts that's gonna come and play in the dirt with me tomorrow, unless it's pissing rain at departure time, I'm gonna do breakfast at Little Phil's in Somerset (on the square) at 9am (they are open on Sundays, turns out).

    Then, head down to the Perry parking lot sometime before 10. Meet either place if ya like, ride some dirt, watch Craig fall over alot, etc.

    Have fun all you guys doing Sion's road ride...stay safe.
