    Errr. Let me try that again. EOD3MCs Birthday was 28 Apr-4 May. While J4S claims only a single day for his birthday (today), we are trying to convince him of the value of birthday week :D

    PS No, you can't give him that ugly as* trophy!

    Thanks ALL. I was gonna play hooky today and go to the Husky dealer and buy myself a birthday present but I decided to go make money instead of spending it.:D

    Besides, I wouldn't want to steal Blasters thunder. :eek1 :lol3

    $8500 for a new husky
    $5 per quart of oil every 700 miles to support the current DRZ

    I think he can buy 1700 quarts of oil (going 1.2 million miles) before I can get the math to work out :huh

    Dave....found the electrical problem on the DRZ. It is the fuse block, seems that there is a bit of corrosion and the addition of dielectric grease caused the fuse to not make contact and lose power. New waterproof fuse holder on order. :D

    Negative...coming off the mountain into Elkins.

    Ordered the Big bore 434 cylinder kit for the DRZ, should be here for a weekend wrench and break in party. Sorry, but I can't sell it broke, it just seems wrong. I may start the teardown tonight so that I have minimal time needed before reassembly and ride. :D

    Maybe. If I do it will be a Husqvarna TE449 or TE511. They are taking $2500 off the price for a spring deal and also a low APR. I am looking for something with a 6th gear but the Huskies don't have an aftermarket like the DRZ's so stuff is a bit harder to find. My concern is the ability to carry camping gear and also a decent fuel range, 2.5 gallons isn't going to cut it.

    By broke, are you refering to the start up smoking?

    Would love to help with that...but afraid my schedule is fairly tight with Mom's day this weekend...Possibly Saturday afternoon ?
