    Charlie,

    I have some issues to overcome. Stripped oil screen plug on the bike, the truck is overheating. But, I've got 3 spare hours tomorrow. Hope to be good to go early Saturday morning. :thumb

    That's a good story, have another one?
    AYSO for now, he's only 4 1/2. However, he's the only kid on the team to score any goals all season so far. He averages 2 per game. Last weekend he had a hat trick in the fourth quarter to win the game :clap

    I've been told he's a stud, just like dad. Boy, I can't wait to meet his dad.:rofl

    I've been reffing this season. Might stick with that so that i can still have some riding time. I've got out twice since the season started, so not too bad.

    I'm not worried about my bad calls. I have 20 years of soccer under my belt.

    AYSO, COAST and PSL, High School MVP and top scorer two years in a row (only thing I was good at in hs other than selling pot and acid), Also played one season on Scorchers (exhibition league in the early 80's). We opened up for the Aztecs a couple of times.

    Charlie,

    The stripped bolt repair did not go well. I need to buy more extraction tools. Sorry I can't make it this time. Bummed...

    Mike. Check the battery after you take off the tender. It should read 12.8 to 13.1 to still be holding a charge. Also you can check if you have a power draw pretty easy. using a 12v light. Disconnect the ground wire first to the battery. Connect the tester clip to the terminal. Then put the point to the battery - post. If the light goes on it means you have a draw. Do it the same way for the + side too. If you want to rule out the stator, cdi and regulator rectifier? Let me know because I have good spares you can try out. Ben

    I didn't get any video from Saturday. We were doing some fun climbs and descents, all within a couple of miles of camp.

    Charlie & company were great hosts!

    Thanks for coming out - great weekend for riding. I didn't get many pics but will post up a couple as soon as I get them down loaded from the camera. Next time we should explore more toward the north, lots of great riding in and around that area.
