At this point I am putting the tank back on #1.
I miss riding too much, the indy ride comming up, 
Jersey Bill wanting to hook this weekend. 
60 hours a week working is killing me too.
I got #2 running, and used seafoam but the low speed jet
is wrong or fecked up. Unless I ride the clutch like a newbie,
and then go like a bat outta hell, the new bike chokes.
yet, almost runs best with the choke on. I looked retarded
do the test runs, and then it blew #1 off the road on the freeway.
(my buddy Danny was riding #1) 

Totally frustrated, but haven't given up. Only a dumb mick
like me would start a project in July. I am going to
switch the plastic back and the head light
mount needs glued and I'm back on to #1.
maybe just to finish off the season. one last kiss...
I should stick to building computers :P

    What all did you end up moving over to the new bike?
