Congrats Mikey! Have you broken the news to Huge yet?

Man, is my wife pissed at you for letting me ride your bike........ . I broke down and went pumpkin. Monty was working the phones yesterday afternoon and this morning. He found one at Chester (Lake Almanor). It had just arrived about 10 minutes before he called (at least that's the dealers story). After MUCH hassle to secure funds we finally secured the bike!!! The problem wasn't a lack of funds. This dealer didn't accept credit cards, cash or cashiers check only. I wanted to gain some airline miles on my card that's why I wanted to use it. Turns out there wasn't a branch office of my bank (Citibank) within 50 miles of Monty's house ..... . Anyway to make a long story longer, I got the ducks in a row (all the while with prospective buyers circling my bike) and we made the score! Kudos to Monty for all his help. Round trip = 600 miles. I drove 750 miles to get my WR so I figure by the time I get my 10th bike my next door neighbor will should be a dealer. We are going riding this Saturday up at Stonyford, you should go. Mike (Roseville),Granite Johnny, Huge, Brian M., Ricky1, Darbsitton, SFO and everybody else is welcome.

My wife reminded me that her dumb husband (my words not hers) has to take her and the kids to the airport on Saturday. I forgot about it completely. Can we go Sunday or even a weekday next week? Hell bring your bike to my house and we'll ride around the block!
You were doing soooo good until the chrome dome part..... . I'm going to miss my Yamaha but damn that orange feels good!

Denise and I are getting hitched and taking a dirtbike tour of baja.
St Veronica to Cabo, 10 days 1200 miles.
I am working on tires gearing and general tune up stuff and want to stay focused.
I'll be thinking of y'all when I am sitting in Cabo on newyears with a tall one and a shot of tequilla....(not)

I dropped the family off at the airport this morning. My next mission is to rejet this bike. It runs like crap with the "G" needle in it. Getting a big time surge down low and mucho backfiring on deceleration. Nor really ridiable in it's present state. I'm off to the dealership tp see what I can get. I'll post later today with a status report.

I think I am out. I cut the living you know what out of my palm on a jar of broken jelly while taking out the trash ( I need to hire someone to take out my trash). The cut is pretty deep on my left palm and I don't know if I can grip. I am going to see how it feels and go from there. If I don't show at B and K's than you know why. If it feels good and I can grip I will make it, but if it still gushing blood like it is right now, I may stay home. So if I you don't see me at B and K's by the time you leave, than I won't be there. I really wanted to ride with another Orange bike to compare. At any rate, if I don't make it, we need to get together real soon so we can another Orange to the blue boys .
