Default Re: Happy fourth, who's riding today?

Decided to dial in the Mikuni on my engine for our local parade on Saturday, but couldn't get it just right. I removed my gas tank shutoff valve and found the little screen was clogged with gasoline varnish or ethanol gook. Cleaned the screen with brake cleaner then swapped the gasoline for ehtanol free high test. I re-adjusted the carb and it dialed right in. I rode the bike to the post office, picked up a new lawn sprinkler at the hardware store, then rode to the waterfront to watch the shrimp boats unload. The bike runs so well I rode through the village and recruited a couple on scooters to ride with us in Saturday's parade. Made it home in time to throw the burgers on the grill for everyone.
