    Sounds good, The warloop road sounds a bit rough, I may leave the german pig at home and see how road worthy the WR is.

    when is this warloop ass-ault?

    I think im due a day off from the grind...

    Oh, I swapped my pilot jet from a 40 to a 42.5 today.

    started with no choke, and I accidentaly did a wheelie coming out of the driveway for the test ride.

    the little 225 has like 8 HP now instead of 6.

    Would have to come up to the seat. Intake snorkel is up under the seat. Then it would die otherwise it is fine. It wasn't to deep just up on the motor a bit.

    Just the name soundes cool. Besides I wann see Ted bring one of his real bikes and tear it up. The road that is not the bike.:evil

    Only thing is I should be joining the realm of the working class again later this month so I may miss it. That sucks.

    I wouldnt know, going up or down isnt a whole bag of fun on the GS!

    That was also the closest I've come to getting the GS on the ground! At the top of the hill theres a little farmhouse on the left, there was some water that ran across the road directly in front of that house..just a 5' section of wet road..I was just cruising through it going fairly straight and the bike started to lay over..foot came off the peg and the bars turned left FULL lock! It was just about down when it straightend up on the dry dirt, I've never seen nuttin like it. Definite pucker, Elvis just missed it, he would have been :lol3 .

    Of course I would of felt bad aftewords though since that thing is so damn fancy when it is clean. Besides we both would of probably got wet trying to pick that beast up in the water. Never told you about falling over into a muddy ditch on my uncle 79 cb750f supersport. I had to pick that thing up on a muddy incline. I weighed 110 lbs. I got it up though. Liked to of killed me.:lift

    ^There wasnt any water, just a section of wet dirt. We would have left the pig and rode double back to town on your bike. :freaky

    I know the feeling elvis, I dropped a KX420 on a side of a railroad track when I was a kid. It was upside down and took me quite a long time to get her back upright. I think I learned how to cuss that day!:hair
