I just need one other to commit and I'll go.

*borrowing a ramp friday, transfering the truck into my name saturday. Oil change, looking it over. As long as I don't break down or crash from snow........I'll be there.

It's only about 2 1/2 to 3hours drive for me. Lot longer for you. Pretty much whatever the earliest time you can reasonably be there is good with me.

*snows got me worried. Have to stay on top of that one.

All right big jer, you did it now. This Wenatchee woosie will make it. Only an hour or so for me out there. Just gotta get the carb dialed in, but shouldn't be too much work. And Shane, we're talking about next weekend, the 21st. So, can you make it or what?

Yes jer, all shame and injury shall be your sole burden to carry. LOL.

I have a small flatbed trailer, can easily get a couple bikes on it, and I have room for one in my truck as well. Anyone wants to carpool, that would be cool.

Removed and cleaned my carb a couple weeks ago. Ran great for a few minutes, then started giving me grief just off idle. Pulled the bowl to check the pilot, and sure enough, picked up some schmutz floating around in there. Sticking a new one in tomorrow, should be good to. We'll keep an eye on the weather. Other than a little snow a couple days ago, it has been beautiful over here, lots of sun, just a little cool. Hopefully it holds out and we can all meet up for some fun next weekend.

Inspector, glad to hear you are still in. Especially since you were the catalyst for this ride.
I just tore into my carburetor again as it was still hard to start, and just wouldn't idle. As it turns out, the WR carburetor has a plate on the slide that looks almost symmetrical, and can be mounted in 2 different ways. But only one is correct. I of course installed it wrong the first time, but after removing the carb again and flipping that little sucker over, poof! She rips again.Fires right up, idles like a dream, and no longer has that annoying pop on decel since I adjusted the TPS while I was in there. I am really looking froward to next weekend! Any idea when we want to meet yet?

We can either meet in Vantage or at the staging area. I have never been in either area so can't recommend a spot.

There is a Shell station in the middle of town in Mattawa, be a good place to fuel up and load with snacks, water. Just curious as to when is most reasonable for you guys coming from the other side? It's only about an hour for me, so I will leave that to you.
