    Put me down as tentative for Wednesday. I'll be in Paris the evening before for Bike night in Paris. I believe DSP will also be in attendance.

    We could have done Thursday...but too late to change now

    I'll likely walk down to the square for Bike night as well.

    I'd ride over, it is further than my creaking right knee would like to walk.
    And I like to watch people as they try to figure out what the heck my bastard bike is! :jack
    I may even wash it between now and then...

    According to google maps, it's 600m from my front door, so I can drink and walk :freaky

    IF... I can get my bike running properly I'll come. Otherwise I'll be in my garage trying to get my bike to run properly.

    It is not. But I'm 99% sure I've found the problem.

    The Throttlebody requires extremely narrow low voltage tolerances to open and close the butterfly valve.
    Since I got water in the connector on our trip back from Wawa it caused corrosion and enough resistance is created to allow it to run but not idle.
    I ordered a new connector set from EasternBeaver and it came in last night. But I'm just waiting on a crimper to be able to put it all on and know for sure.
    An MIL FI light comes on every once in awhile indicating "Throttle Position not Plausible" which makes sense with my current theory. (no pun intended)

    Good to see everyone. I would have had a bigger table if people actually committed to showing up..... ;)
