Re: CRAP XIV HEAD COUNT

Sad to say, but the Mrs and I are cancelling for this trip. :( We don't want to be unknowing carriers and risk exposing anyone.

Re: You still drive a stick?

Everything I own is stick shift. Sucks sometimes, but I like rowing the gears. Got my CDL and learned how to float the gears (not use a clutch when up or down shifting) which makes it better!!

Re: Interstate Blast from NC to Florida and Back

Sounds like a nice trip! I try to avoid the interstates on the Ural, but sometimes it has to be done.

Re: Open face helmet, or full face ....

I have an old Scorpion 3-1 helmet. Mostly ride it as a 3/4. When wet or really cold will put the "full face" portion on. It then acts like a flip up. And yes I know the protective values of a full face, found out the hard way while racing at Road Atlanta...

Re: Running Great Since I bought it. Now...

Thanks for more great info. May attempt to follow Wooden Nickle's and Jeff's advice soon! Also no "prime" for the petcock as it has been swapped out for, I believe, a Suzuki one; Off, On and Reserve.
