    Wasn't me. I snuck a quick ride after work before dinner but stayed west of 71 and south of MLK. This whole full time job and part time masters program really kills riding except for the weekend

    That is possible, not sure where it is on that truck, but he did replace the brake master cylinder, not sure if its ran since then.

    On another note, I was just informed that Braums sells frozen tamales in their grocery section and they are good, can anyone confirm or deny?

    I think you need to puts some boots on that kid. And you need to let me take that two smoker out for a ride. Looks like a hoot. I hope she takes to it. I bought my daughter an XR 100 when she was about 12 and sold it two years later. She probably rode it twice. :cry

    So far she has put a lot of miles on her 90 four wheeler and has been riding her little bothers 70 with training wheels all over place. She loves to ride. Hopefully this one is not to much for her. we have a big grass/dirt place for her to try it out and get used to it.

    If you guys have any advice on starting a kid with a clutch let me know.

    Like I said unless she is going to MX race put about 3 inches of header pipe in it.
    For training with the clutch have her start in 2nd or 3rd a few times - teaches to fan. Another trick is to do a few feet at a time, teaches to let out and back in before letting it out all the way.

    Looks fun.:clap

    Well then... post pics of it! You know, put up or shut up! :rofl:rofl

    Speaking of yours being a '75: Mine may have been a '75, too. I really can't remember. (Old age sucks, 'ya know!)

    I purchased mine off Bill Hutchison over at Wheeler Kawasaki on Towson Ave in Ft. Smith back in the mid-70's... just can't remember the date any closer than that. It was Bill's personal woods scoot and he sold it to get something else. So, it was a model year old when I purchased it, I think? Bill had performed most of the mods, including the aluminum tank. I recall that I also received the OEM fiberglass tank with it, along with some other bits n' pieces.

    SHOULDN'T have got rid of that one.

    HOWEVER, in the interest of fairness, it DID have "warts". One thing I remember detesting was the stiff clutch (normal for that model engine) as well as some drag of same. (Again, all too common.) Didn't matter how it was adjusted, it was stiff and would drag. I also recall it drinking the gas... not as much trail range as I liked.

    Other than those couple items, it was a great bike... especially considering its peers.
