    Just got back from Badger Mtn, seeing how it does on the road instead of town. He has everything adjusted full soft and it rides like a silly Cadillac! I'll set all damping back in the middle cause I don't know any better.
    Two other things need attention.
    One is the headlight is too high on the high beam, but it's on low!:eek1 Need to come waaay down.
    The other is it sure feels to me like there's a pretty bad lean cruise going on. Might be just the suspensions moving around but after 20 years of pro auto work it feels like surging to me. He gave me some jets and stuff but bike carbs I don't know. Put a QuadraJet on there and I can make it run GOOD, so I'll find someone to fixemit up probably.

    could ride the lower elevation #1800 roads and go see how low or high the snow is. Lots of downed trees and branches I'd bet,,,I got a pickup load of freshly downed maple just ystdy from up Winberry crk.(it'll burn next year)
    gonna rain tomorrow anyway,,,I might just cook and eat all day, and fill the freezer with leftovers for lunches!

    So maybe I posted the TW too cheap @ 1500$ on CL, I think I had at least 15 responses that said they wanted to come after it.

    Well said ! I'm not surprised you knew him too. True "little good does a key made of soap in a rain storm".

    Raining it's butt off here and the dog wants to go stare at the Hellocopter. Guess we'll take the Jeep cause his legs are too short for the pegs.

    Screw it, the sun is shining. Heading to Wolf Creek, out to Siuslaw Rd, across to Stagecoach and back to Fish Creek, over the top to Fisk, back to Elmira via Sheffler. As soon as breakfast is done...
