    Starting magic. You can feel the piston come up to top of the cylinder. Pay attention to that first. Once you have that mental image of it going to the top and then over tied to the kick lever go ahead and set up for a start.

    Push just a little more on the kicker and then release it. What you did was to push the piston just past tdc. Now, give it a good follow through kick.

    Reset the piston to just past tdc (top dead center) and give her another go. Some bikes around here have caused people to go buy another with a starter. :D


    As far as riding goes, we're all over the board. Sometimes it's just trails, sometimes it's trips around the state involving a mix of tar, dirt roads and some trails.

    There will be some rides this summer announced here and they'll be for bigger bikes like yours. Stay tuned and you're welcome to come along.

    Well, I just brought home a brand new NC700 Friday.:clap When does the good weather start? Anyone want to buy a really mint 2000 DR650. Never been off road and meticullesly (sp) detailed after every ride. I might keep it. I just can't make up my mind

    I was hoping to avoid the pushing, but I settled on the KTM anyway.:1drink


    I still like the joe rocket ballistic 8.0 jacket. It looks really versitle, and it's not shaped like a tent.

    Congratulations! Seems my MO is to buy my new bikes in February. Then I sit around wishing I could ride it. Not a bad thing though. New bike smell goes a long way with these winter days.
