oye laughed sooo muuch, oye damn near piddled in moy pants!

terrycable hot start button eat your heart out!

i saw a wr4 at a H & H in suffolk on sunday. the owner had taken the hotstart button off the frame & put it on under the handlebar, mounted on the decomp lever.

he'd simple put a tube up to the handlebars to his little red button. what should have been the pipe to the airbox now had a little bit of scotchbrite in it. airbox was of course blocked off.

in england there's an old saying "a good engineer is a man that can make for sixpence what someone else would make for a shilling (double)"

get this- the rider was genuinly annoyed that it had cost him £1 ($1.50)!!!!
