    No go for today. I might get her running around the block, but life and work are catching up.

    Fwiw, i like sand.

    No problem went out for an hour or so,
    small fuel leak, gasket, should of took a small screw driver, air bleed is a little rich.
    Next week I'll fix fuel leak and get plates so I can cross 83 and see how it does on 83.

    I need to be updated on terms, does Fwiw= Fine women in Wyoming?

    I see we're coming up on our 15,000th post soon. I went back to post #1 and was floored that we've been at it for 5 years :deal We really do talk about riding more than we ride...and I admit to being the biggest offender. :D

    Sorry to hijack your thread, but if anybody wants to go riding around Baghdad this weekend, aztom is missing. There's a search in progress, and they are asking for help. There's a thread in the west forum titled help aztom missing. He is a 72 year old adv'er and should have been home last night by 5:00. Thanks
    Don

    *edit: call off the search. He walked out!

    Eric, try P&L Upholstery on Stone street. They do a lot of motorbike work and did the install of my Seat Concepts cover on the WR.

    I met frank in Baja last week. I knew he prepped adv bikes but I was not sure of his engine repair experience. You have experience with him in this regard? Thx

    Frank was a factory BMW tech at one time. He also owns that bike, so he knows the bike as well.
