Success. The foam filter stayed put over 27miles, and fuel mileage was normal at about 100/gal. Had a good time at the parks, got bit by a dog while resting at the dog park but it was a little wimpy dog and didn't even hurt. hahaha. Fun day.

$1.30 instead of $5, here.

I do the Vicodin thing after I wreck. It usually doesn't affect my writing as much. I just can't find my front door.

After a (sudden) stop, flop and roll, I am particular to Percodan. Not sure it helps with the pain, I have no clue as to any thing going on.

The trying to stand and falling back down is a really bad feeling. I can't imagine a broken kneecap. Must take forever to feel right and work.

Just a side note. Every one expresses them selves differently. Like Uncle Ron typing all in capital letters. He is not "yelling", contrary to any sort of Netiquette, just how one of us expresses him self.

Really is interesting knowing all of you guys and reading different ways of explaining stories and how you did things. Some times my English skills are not real the greatest, but always in fun.

(that and when you make fun of me, I throw stuff at the 'puter TV. NANANANNAa)

edangel, I am sad to hear that you went down and got hurt really bad. I hope that you heal up fast and better than before the wreck.
Hopefully your bike can make a full recovery too.

Take care of that knee- they take ALONG time to heal. The misses has 7 screws in hers from an accident almost 8 years ago and it still bothers her.

That sucks Angle hope you heal up real fast.

I purchased Knee and shin pads for racing http://motorbicycling.com/showthread.php?t=29175. But I've grown accustomed to wearing my knee and shin pads all the time now. So far they have saved my knees once in a parking lot.

OMG BROTHER, You really are the Wickedest one I know. Riding in below freezing weather, screws, plates and staples all up in yer knee. You guy's from Connecticut are certainly a tough lot.

Woo Hoo, I got my 1915ish looking thing running today. Put 10 to 12 miles on it. It has a 79cc HF engine, jackshaft reduction, the only thing left of the donner bike is the rear triangle. It is geared to high though. Ordered some new gears for the reduction. I can now see what all the hoopla is about the 4 strokes.
