    BLT, me and dill-hole went to Renfro Valley this weekend.
    Had killer weather and trails on Saturday.
    Woke up Sunday to rain and sore bodies so we gladly came home a day early.

    Here's some cam footage - have a lot more but it's of my visor :cry

    Got one other video to post soon.

    HA! I thought I knew that name. I had run across you on the RZ/RD forum in the past.

    Don't bother talking about selling your RZ- I have seen it at Puckett's and frankly you would be a fool to let it go. (but you don't need me to tell you that, I am sure there are little voices in your head that have already told you).

    That's cool to know that there is another local Honda even if it is an XR-R. You and BajaDoug might get a chance to discuss "kicking" techniques while you wait for me and Andy on our slow ass XR-L's. :evil

    Does anybody know who can repair my taillight? A diode (I think) broke and I'm not sure how to reattach it.

    TR,
    Good to "see" you again. I know I will kick myself If I sell my last remaining RZ. But right now it lives full time in my office and only gets to take a smoke break a few times a year. Basically its moto art. I am thinking that at my age, I am to young (and poor) to be collecting art.
    I'm sure I will be riding sweep since all the e-start bikes will have left me in the dust after I drop the piggy and have a minor heart attack trying to prod it back to life.

    tk, can you get to the back side of that board? I would think any TV repair shop would be able to replace the resistor for a few bucks. I don't mess with electronics much anymore, but that is almost certainly a resistor.

    :nod

    The colored bands on the resistor tell you the value, I would guess it is a 1/4 watt, and Radio Shack probably has them. I can solder it in.

    Does that one looked burned or just separated?

    It's just separated. I knocked the pigtail off when I was cleaning it. I can get to the back of it, but it's sealed. I'd have to scratch the sealant off, solder, and reseal with something. I don't know what. I'll run down to Radio Shack tomorrow and see if they can match it up.

    They should have a little "color wheel" guide that they can use to decode the value and then match it. They are pretty cheap generally, and if they don't have an exact match, a close match will probably work just fine.

    You don't say...... Might be a good shakedown for the piggy if all the parts come in.

    Well, Radio Shack doesn't stock the resistor. I can order it and have it shipped. Is there any place in Nashville where I could find this thing? Would a hobby shop have one? I believe it to be a 1/4 watt 390 ohm resistor. I'd like to ride Hickman this weekend.
