havn't had that problem with the NT/Speed carb.

thinking i may get a dellorto carb




EDIT: also ordered an avid bb5 caliper and a 185mm rotor

It snowed again!!!! 16 inches+. Started digging out at 6 am. about 2, it got to 35/40 and went for a ride. LOL, do rides count as having done some thing? Am so happy to have fenders again.

Didn't even check the oil and only glanced at the gas. Gotta grab rides when ever possible.

Got my moped tank in the mail yesterday. Now I have to get some pipe insulation to cover my bar to aid in mounting it and get it painted up to match the bike. I'm also working on some custom decals but have to find the water slide paper, might have to order that online. In the mean time I might be able to use some transparent sticker paper.

Had some fun in the Chatroom for a while...(sry, only registered ppl can see that)

Conversation went to Snowbikes, and K-Trax, had to post a couple of HT Ktrax bikes:
YouTube - Newfienorthca's Channel
YouTube - MysticCruisers's Channel

I then brought up Floating HT's, that was novel, so I had to post this pic:
and some Vids to verify I wasn't crazy:

Ride on your bike with a backpack, then assemble and inflate next to the water:
"ShuttleBike Official Vid":
YouTube - Shuttlebike film
Hoo'Ra!:
ShuttleBike HT Vid:
YouTube - MysticCruisers's Channel


I... then... brought up.... the flying bike subject, with discernibility abound, everyone left...(I'm nuts right?) So this vid was entered for scrutinizing, I know its not an HT, but I think with a Modified Morini and some gearing this would totally be possible for us (crazier)enthusiasts:
YouTube - Incredible Flying Motor Bike...

Muahaha!

After that I started to think about submersibles... and whether an engine could run off of an oxygen tank, like scuba but for HT, hah hah.... regulated sealed intake? Why wouldn't that run....?

Even I think I lost it after that,
Here's a pedal submarine, so you(and I) know I'm not totally out of it, heh heh:

...help me Jebas!

got my avid bb5 caliper in the mail ^-^

messed around with the chopper fork, getting it to clear the rotor, had to take a hammer to it... starting to come along nicely.

Killer! cool on that flying MC. Never would have thought of a FD. Thats a thunk. Working on a "air boat" style trike one. Similar to that concept but would be a skiff with wheels.
