My friend had a dog that sometimes 'used' the basement also. This meant that he kept a hose handy to clean...

    I also bought a 500 in '83 and, yes, you're correct , that bike was special ! I wish I had kept it. I do like my '02 VLX, but I wish it had one more high gear.

    General Bike Discussion
    I'm not a kid anymore and I have little reason to be out riding at night. I did find myself out the other night though. I was headed home on a 4 lane road here and coming up to a stretch of a mile or so where there is a golf course on either side of this street. I've seen deer crossing here in...

  13. Bike dying frequently after new petcock valve.

    Technical Discussion
    As far as I know, There is a little pipe inlet for both regular run position and a shorter pipe for the reserve setting. The regular position pipe must be plugged with something. When you allow the bike to sit, enough gas to fill the float bowl seeps by the obstruction.....
