    No, the problem has not gone away.

    I am awaiting the arrival of an Antigravity battery. My hope is it will have enough cranking power to start the motor.

    It might not fix the problem but it will hopefully be a workable solution.

    I installed an Antigravity in my ST and the bike started right up. Hopefully, that resolves the hard start issue.

    Impressive! Now if you could have only done some full throttle runs and got that fuel mileage number down to 22.2 mpg. :-)

    It’s an old joke about picking 22 on the roulette wheel. I don’t know where it started though. When I saw all the 2’s its what I thought of.

    One of my absolute, all time favorite movies. A bit dated but still pretty hilarious. Albert Brooks at his best.

    Nothing improves a bike like a new pair of tires. Local dealer sells the Heidenau K 76 and free mounting. Good for my mostly street and occasional forest service road use. They remind me of the Tourance but with deeper tread. 20200703_145545.jpg

    Another great ride last weekend. A bit warm (104), but hey...Texas. Seems every turn brings different terrain. Enjoy. IMG_2517.jpg

    The seat appears to be in the high position. About the weight, it's spot on for a road bike. Just heavy for a dirt bike.
