Those wet clutches are like farming on Mars to me, cool to learn about but scary to try.

Got some decent fenders on the 29er today. Tomorrow is rerouting/cutting clutch cable for Ron's(Al.Fisherman) clutch roller. That should be sweet!



There's more info in my thread: http://motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?t=33097&page=3

Nope no big bulky 4 strokes for me. The 50cc class one would not be powerful enough for what I am spoiled with now. I can't stand J shafts anymore and got bored the H.T.. They all all great motors. It's what ya make of them..And a big ol harbor freight motor would be Kewl as all get go! The law here says it is not a moped after 50cc. I saw the light me got's everything I need! 4 Morini's life is good.

Farming on mars lol that's what my garden has turned out to be this year.

I know what ya mean about the clutch but I got a handle on it. There is no such thing as I can't in my vocabulary.

Those fenders look sweet! Killer I like the way the whole bike came out!

You an your thumpers... I like to tinker, and I like the power of a properly tuned 2-smoke over a thumper. I've had Can-Am 250's that would keep up to CRF/YZF 450+ thumpers. But, that was just farm boys ripping around, but hey, boy's will be boys, and I kept up

Side growl at Can-am's left sided kickstart, now that you made me think of that bike, lols...

I miss the sound of that bike, left side kick notwhithstanding: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zu8cmN3K6e4

Throw one of those in your Delta yank xD

lol you guys! I don't know where that Mar's ref came from, I watched Space Battleship Yamato the other day, just popped in my head. (awesome movie btw, .srt needed though)

But yea, if your limits 50cc, 2 stroke is where the power is.

Sorry thumper guys...

Well I bought those cheap turn signals for my bike ( the 7.00 dollar ones) off ebay and installed them. Actually they are great because Oregon requires turn indicators on regular bicycles at night ( motorized biikes considered regular bicycle here) and off I went into the night.

They are kinda cheesy but decent but during my ride I vibrated off the clip that attaches to the brake wire and the rear brake light of course stopped working. Fortunately I had a second set i bought and put the clip back on and took small thin slices of electrical tape and wrapped them around that clip several times.

Rode all day today and it works like a charm!

*Used to* lol, but if I want to ride a snowmobile I'll ride a snowmobile

Found a better vid of an MX-6 250, screams nostalgia: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi3wR840CLI


And now back to our regularly scheduled "What did you do today"

ps, 2-smokes pwn.
