    good insulated over-hauls gloves and some goggles and BAM........ youre good to go man....LOL!

    Thats what I do when I get the itch and just have to ride, did it yesterday as a matter of fact... I dont ride much in the winter either, I live several miles from town out in the country so the F150 is much more comfortable.

    Just got my new twist throttle now I got a problem with cable length is there any need for the elbow in the cable? I'm thinking about cutting it off with my dremel. Or is there any way I can use a different cable?

    .xx.Replaced easty strip China bolts with American made triple hardend bolts to mount my motor. Shes stayin! I pull my motor out frequently to adjust float because I can't get to it. Carb issue is over with, and cheap chiner bolts were to! My $75 Pocket Motor was going 45mph today in the wind. It climbs better up hills than 4 stroke Heshing. I love the fact I can push or pedal it with ease. Ready to take orders for easy install mounting kits with instructional video.

    So I took off that elbow and boy am I lucky the cable is just the right length now. Just took her for a spin had trouble with the choke arm so I took apart the speed not carb filter to really tighten that but hopefully it doesn't come loose again. Also won 20 at lotto wheel of fortune at the convenience store:p wooot!dance1

    Im really, really enjoying the new feel of these bars just one downside, you have to really keep a good grip on them around here, we have really bumpy roads.

    In other news, I chatted with Dave from Arrow this evening for quite awhile and wow what a nice guy! I had many questions and he really helped me out and offered up some great advice. To date every vendor and forum member Ive chatted with (and its a fast growing list) have all been really great folks.

    Put my tank back on. No leaks. Been riding it for a little bit. Doesn't like the cold too much. Maybe that's my spark plug doing that. hehe

    Carb is trying to disintegrate. argh

    Took my bike to work this morn. Left @ 4am it was dark and cold. Left at noon and it was a beautiful clear Nov. day about 50 degrees. 7mile ride through pretty country, God I love my bike! Well - this afternoon- me and my buddy Steve swapped out his CNS v3 for an NT. Hands are still gassy. Success! an excellent day!

    What did I do today?
    Well I'm glad you asked!!!

    My GT-5 and I broke 50mph this evening!
    Both my front fender, and my rear fender vibrated until they broke, and my rear bracer went into the spokes, but it was worth it!

    I rode past a PD radar box, and saw 48mph. So I made a few more passes, and made a few more carb adjustments. 52mph is now my top speed to beat!

    I am beyond effing stoked!!!!!!! dance1

    Pulled the trigger today on one of Neil Senior's balanced engines. Sounds like a good affordable upgraded block and a full review will follow as I prep and install it in The Pig II.
    I went with Neil rather than Dax for three reasons:
    1. Neil makes no false "made in America" claims.
    2. Neil's motor is complete with top end.
    3. Neil has a better price.
    I've been thinking about a dax balanced bottom for awhile, but the need for a top end and the false advertising kept me from buying.
    Neil's engine looks like a great deal!
    Time will tell...
