It's probably alot because I am one sexy beast in full race leathers.
Yea, but that first bike just sets off you outfit.
yuk! little shits will eat anything.
Props are an additional cost.
and seeing as how I'm leaving for Moab in 3 days, it's a good thing I could rob one from the other DR...
If your gonna go the bait route, avoid the little pellet kind. They love to carry and stash them in the worst of places before they eat it and die.
The bar style is much better. Yellow colored waxy kind seems extra good. "Just one bite" and "Ramik" are good brands. They have a hole through the center, and you can run a wire through them and tie to something heavy to keep the big bruisers from dragging them away.
Sticky pad traps work excellent also. Bait em with a dab of creamy style peanut butter in the center.
If its entertainment your after, this bucket trap was a real hoot !
There's nothing like the sweet sound of a 2 stroke on the pipe.
Well, except maybe for the crisp WHACK! sound that a regular old mouse trap can generate when it catches one of those bastards.
Anyone interested in a fully built 790, ready to go? Decided to put mine up for sale. It's in the main Flea Market:
That's a sweet deal for somebody!
You can stop by my house, 36 miles west of Chapparal. We have BMW 1200's and DR! Coffee always available (and Newcastle Brown Ale but not when operating a motorized vehicle). Claremont Village is delightful if you have time. 6 miles from Browns Motor Works (BMW). BUT a good BMW store is Irv Seavers in Orange. Another interesting motorcycle store is Southern California Motorcycles in Brea. Lots to keep you busy. Thurs/Fri/Sat/ Sun... Newcombs Ranch Inn on HIghway 2.........35 miles west of Wrightwood. Sunday 22nd April FREE MotoGP on the big screen at Newcombs....and for FREE at Downtown Independent Theater in Los Angeles.....take the train direct from San Berdu to Union Station and walk to the gig at the Independent.
I have a 5.5 gal Acerbis tank and I'm working on routing the right side hose from the petcock to the left side where it will T with the left side petcock and go into the carb. I've found that the left petcock is lower than the carb input, so is there a certain way to route the fuel hose so it ends up above the carb input?
Also, I have thick black fuel hose which is really stiff. The clear fuel house is more pliable, but is it durable enough ?
I used the D-Con pellet style years ago. Then when I was moving, I found the stuff in the weirdest places. Hadn't used it in years, but there it was stashed in places you'd never think. We didn't like to use it because we got dogs and they might eat a stash if they found it. I switched to snap-traps and peanut butter. Also if a hawk or owl gets a poisoned mouse it can kill them too. I caught one mouse in a sticky trap in the garage that I put there mainly for spiders.
Yeah they are. Automatic copyright protection came about in 1978.
However, you have to register your work if you want to litigate and claim damages and attorney fees.

I finally got around to ordering DDCs and springs for my DR. I'll install them as part of the next service coming up shortly.
On Michnus' and Elsebie's bikes, we put the tee on the right side and turned the carburetor's fuel inlet toward the rear (reserve did not work properly beforehand).
