Re: Rear Brake Problem

Another '07 with a broken brake shoe spring.? I've done mine twice in 30 months and the last time it felt like the spring had broke again after about 50 kms of "Baja'n". (CA off road term ) because the shoe was sticking or wouldn't release. Did not lock up tho'. I pulled it apart and Walla, no broke...

Re: The new Harley's

To share with Bluerockcrawler, 90 mph in second gear all I could hear was my daughter hollering "wahoo" between the shift to third. (Now comes the chastising for passenger endangerment). Honestly I enjoyed the VRod.. It was my wife who asked me to get off owning sport bikes. Guess Im "pussified" too...

Re: The new Harley's

Bang for your buck ? 0-60 mph in THREE seconds for $28k is a steal. Think what you could do to an Audi R8 Spyder owner who paid $168k to go 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds. ¿. Observation/question. The HD Livewire seat may help but you better have a good grip on the bars. That's insane acceleration and torq...

Re: Am I too Old?

Old ? Back in the late 90s our neighbor teen said " What do you mean Ozzy was in a band Black Sabbath ? He's always been Ozzy" Dick ? Paul Simon was invited to meet and record with Bob Dylan at a Greenwich Village studio. When introduced Bob said " Who's this nobody ? Get him out of here." Paul Simo...

Re: Not So Political Political Post About Me

I'm 60 years old. In my short time I've seen lots of people move "up the ladder" in various ways. My first reaction to your running for office is No. Don't do it. You WILL become one of them. I don't like politics in general. And yes I've had inside experiences on local, state and national levels. T...

Re: You still drive a stick?

Makes driving feel like driving, and with the stick it gives you a place to hang your hat, not like on the "Three on the Tree". Three on the tree is a steering column manual. An improvement from floor shift and eliminating some transmission hump. It's all personal choice. Slapstick muscle cars can ...

Re: What are your kickstarting rituals?

Power on, crack the throttle so it is just off of the stops and give it a kick. It starts right up even if it has been sitting for awhile. My Dnepr is kickstart only and has Edelbrock Quicksilver carburetors. +1 That's how I've done my '07 Patrol. Mostly with choke on for first 5-15 seconds. If it'...

Yeah that's what I figured. Thanks for the additional info. Gotta bump out of it too !!

BTW: Any attendees in North County who are willing to pick me up a T shirt (xxl-xxxl) and front the entry fee to get a cool side kick stand for my wife, I'd appreciate. PM please.
