    If you're referring to the large guy with the yellow tee shirt I'm not sure but I think he goes by jeepgeek or something like that..............I just feel sorry for his chair, I think I actually heard it crying out loud. It sounded like it was saying,,,,"too heavy, get off me, can't breathe." :imaposer

    Like the movie All the right stuff, I pretended I was Chuck Yeager and "put the spurs to her",,,,rode her hard and gave her back to ya wet. Sorry if she's a little loose for ya now. :photog

    Having spent some time on your girl and riding Vic's GS, I'm think'n I might want to get me one of them beasts.

    I took Phil's GSA out for a ride Sunday am and wow, those are sweet machines. Thank you guys.

    Now if I could just find 40 grand laying around, I could get one with all the options and gear. :lol3

    Then I could pretend to be Ewan McGregor and go ride around the world. Or at least around lower Alabama.

    Quit drawing on my canyon pictures you FF. You're messing them up.

    Leak down test is always a good start. But like I mentioned, it could be the CCV (crankcase vent) sucking vaporized oil into the suction port on the carb. There are some mods for that where you use a longer hose and reroute it. I would search for mods involving that. And then there are the valve stem seals. But I think you may try some tricks with the crankcase vent mods first. Check all the tubes/hoses going to catch cans/charcoal canisters and valve covers for oil.

    How else are we supposed to answer the question of "Can you find Waldo"? Oh, he's over there by that shadow to the left of that tree, about 4 inches down and 8 inches to the left. :dirtdog

    I was sitting behind JeepGeek by the fire on Saturday night and said "hey, aren't you JeepGeek"? He said "Yeah, how did you know"? I told him I remembered when he ordered the 3X t-shirt on the forum so I knew to look for the fat guy.

    Thanks to all that provided the wood.
