    Hi Uncle Tom,

    Yea, it is kind of wierd, but the SE is about 60 or so pounds lighter than the Adv. but it feels like alot more. And this bike only has 92hunny on the clock compaired to Flash at 30k. And these SE's are just plain cool!!:deal

    Thanks everyone, Julius is at Dillons getting some serious upgrades and some cool new bling.

    This bike has an Recluse EXP auto clutch, it might be better on the Rug than the little bike?? Naw, what am I saying.......

    See you all soon!!

    Yesterday while WFO in a sand wash the engine seized. :cry

    Had to have a friend tow me out with his trike through 10 miles of deep sand. :puke1

    I new I should've sold that fucking thing. :baldy

    The DRZ's too heavy. (see:I'm not a good enough rider to take that bike through this stuff)

    It happened yesterday so I have no idea WTF happened yet. The bike had been running fine for over a year so :dunno

    The joy of two strokes. Deep sand, WFO and a tish too lean. At least they are easy to work on.

    I know I should have bought that bike when you had it for sale.

    Sorry to hear you broke it.

    i've had to deal with the fact that the fancy clutch does not compensate for lack of skill and physical stamina as clearly illustrated in the last ride I went with Terry on which almost killed me.

    On that note, you going down there in your hoopty? :ear

    Julio,

    If you speak real nicely, I might let you use the 250 EXC 2-smoke for the ride. It is shorter in stature, thus a good ride for you. Also, what year is your 380...and what tank do you have on it?

    that's mighty nice of you but I'd like to kindly remind you that I've completely destroyed 3 engines on 3 separate bikes in the past couple years. :norton

    The 380's a 98. It's got the bigger than stock tank on it I think 3.8(?) :dunno The only thing I added to that bike since I bought it was protective stuff and a Revloc. I wouldn't want to do an entire day on that paint shaker so gas was never an issue.
