    Its been a while since I was there ,passed through Callander many times on my way to the Thistle Rally in Strathyre back in the seventies. I remember it snowing on a few occasions on the way there.
    Safe riding.

    On my way to my one of my favorite spots. Great Smokey Mountains, letting the XR do what it does best: Stretching it's legs. Stopped on the Parkway.

    Spend the better part of today with changing the oil and filter, cleaning & greasing electrical connections, and reinstalling the original factory ram-air filter box. The original owner of the 1995 MG 1100 Sport wanted a different look of this bike, so he removed the ram-air box and installed a tromped type air intake which didn't have any filtration. This bike looked great without the ram-air box, which gave a good view of the bikes frame and rear shock absorber system, but I like the cleaner looks of the 1100 Sport with the ram-air box installed. I also installed a new K&N filter, so the carburetors will get all of the clean and filtered air that they need to perform properly. I was however a little concerned about the carburetor jetting, since they were setup for a direct unfiltered air intake. I test rode the bike after all work was completed, and my jetting concerns subsided quickly since the bike's engine performed perfect with the factory original setup.

    It may not seem that time consuming to install a air-box, but I had to re-route many wires and hoses, removed everything on the bike that was above the air box, readjust the carbs, and it was 97F while I was working on this bike in my barn today..... :)

    The 1100 Sport came in five factory colors: Black, red, yellow, blue, and silver. I do think that silver looks very classy on this 24 year old bike.

    I was pleasantly surprised as I saw on how clean this bike is, even on the areas that are normally hidden, like under the fuel tank.
