    Thanks Guys -

    I did ride thru very bad storms that last day, it sure seems possible that I got some contaminated gas in the tank, so will try the HEET first and keep your appraised!

  12. Thomas is running the Campbell and Dempster too

    We shall see how the street bikes do - I'm just an average rider so compensate with a GS. :thumb

    Note on heat and riding apparel

  18. Can't add anything to Lee's comments -
