    Got the title in the mail yesterday - 1983 XL 250 R that a neighbor gave me just to get it out of his screened in patio. He used it just for commuting to work at the FPL power plant up in Sharpes, then parked it for the last 5 years or so. Needs the carb gone through big time (don't they all), fresh oil, fresh battery, and swapping on a new chain I already have on the shelf. Then a whole lot of just cosmetic cleaning.

    I figure I might get around to it by Spring. :lol3

    Flyin'Brian had one just like that before trading it for his 500

    The sole reason he still rides those old bike is the fact that

    He can actually touch the ground while seated on 'em :lol3

    This one looks pretty tall, and even though I'm a 6 footer I only have a 30 inch inseam. I sat on it once or twice to check the suspension (it works), and kick the motor over. So its in the shed until I can get to it.

    I used to ride one of those all over SoCal in the late 80's. I have it's big brother in the garage now. Can't decide what I want to do with it. I've been offered good money for it, but I might eventually get around to rebuilding it.

    The only quail he knows are the ones in Andy's pen and I've never seen him point at them :lol2

    I don't think he's gained any weight, probably just the way he's sitting

    That's what I thought, too. :D

    Other than free being good (for a project starting point), I like John's bike better.

    I have to be there either Sunday or Monday for a meeting with Dick

    So if any of y'all are planning on going you need to let me know

    Because right now it doesn't look like I'm going up for the weekend :ear

    Not a bad thing :beer

    Since Dick is going to be there this WE for his class reunion in Daytona

    I'm finishing up the stem wall on my pole barn in Weeki Wachee today so I can have sand delivered Friday and get ready to pour the floor slab

    Tomorrow I take my Dad to the Hernando Old Timer's Breakfast in Brooksville

    And then to a 1:30 doctor's appt in Inverness
