    Silly rabbit, it's not a KTM. You only should have done 2 steps (loosen oil plug and unscrew filter!)...

    Actually, like the KTM, there are two drain plugs...

    The rest was to clean out the air box and carb...
    Then I figured I should check the electrical connections...
    Then I found vent tubes with foam in them...
    Then.....

    That looks like way more fun than mowing, trimming, and burning limbs in the redneck fire pit.

    ...is over
    RFlagg42 finished 2nd out of the 38 riders who started in Union City TN. This will probably be his last trip East till the start of the Iron Butt Rally.
    Lisa finished 12th and I 14th (reading comprehension is a bitch) out of the 18 finishers from Batavia NY. Half of those registered were either did not start or did not finish due to the weather (think they were better at reading comprehension than I am). Rode 1033 miles over the 29 hours of the rally - that includes points for a 6 hour rest bonus.
    Learned two things
    a. my iron butt is now marshmallow butt
    2nd. riding over the Delaware Memorial Bridge in the dark in the rain with 40+ knot winds is not fun. have a real life appreciation for the winds the riders experience on Ruta 40 is Argentine Patagonia.

    Wonder if telling Blaster that there is a Waffle House next to rally central in Wilmington NC could tempt him to sign up?:lol3

    PS Even though RFlagg may have placed higher, we know you chose starting locations that roll with the Big Dogs! :rofl

    Yes, I have. A couple of flower pots for starters :lol3. The white top case on my f650 started out pewter. No bubbling, peeling, flaking and it's still holding well, three years.


    Same with the flower pots.

    Yeah, I see the attraction but it doesn't park well... Then again I don't think any municipality would be able to tow you without calling in the National Guard.
