    Glad I checked today because I was under the impression it was on Thursday for some reason. I'll be there, probably driving though since I had to be at work way too early today.

    Forecast is for some pretty wet weather starting mid-afternoon. I'm having second thoughts. I'd only come down on the bike and wouldn't want to get my bike dirty :rofl

    Reschedule sounds good. I was going to be out for tonight anyway, working late. Better luck next week!

    Looks good! I'm thinking a moto-hooky track day on some random Wednesday afternoon at IMI followed by a trip to their Firestone location for brews and Q needs to be in order sometime soon!

    Kathy Sabine seems to have a vendetta against Wednesday rides lately. Anyone up for Friday night (3/27)?

    I may be able to make Friday, if it looks like my bike survived my attempt at the trail. I'm nervous about riding it right now.

    That which does not kill it makes it stronger? Oh wait... Entropy. Never mind. Ride it anyway. We'll find some native adjusting tool and correct the errant barkbuster.

    I can definitely make it and I can definitely have A DRINK. But my budget is shot so more than that I can't promise. I will try to remember my hex wrenches so we can look at the bark buster position, and maybe someone can help me with the reason for the gas leak.

    I'll be on my bike and have a reasonably complete set of tools as well. Rocks... I'm sure we can find those around. Sticking float valves can often be fixed with a rock. Seriously.


    Edit: if the carb is leaking so badly that it won't run properly, don't ride it. If it's a slow drip & it runs OK, bring it over. If you want to try a quick fix, do the following:

    1. Fill the bowl (turn petcock on for a half minute)
    2. Turn petcock off.
    3. Drain the bowl (screw near bottom of carb bowl)
    4. Close bowl drain, & refill.
    5. If it's still leaking, do some solid taps on the side of the carb with a small hammer or screwdriver with repeating 1-4

    The purpose of this exercise is to try and dislodge & flush out anything that might be preventing the float valve from sealing completely.
