Congrats on the new bikes, Pat and Dean!

Hey Todd:

Pat told me about your escapades, whilst a passenger, in his Ferrari a few years ago. Knowing you, i believe every word of it! lol!

Hope you and yours, are doing way good.

Are you going to scrape off the bumper tickers referencing Ted Kennedy and Chappaquiddick?

Hey Tom:

None of those, but there were "Duffy Duck" decals, that i almost left on. The color was not right, so they had to go.

Leave the stickers on if they exist, original only happens once. There is a recall on your new 900 Pat, the shock can wallow out the swingarm if it bottoms out. Ride lightly...

Yes. Thank you. Apparently repeated bottoming out of the rear shock can elongate the mounting hole. The solution is two reinforcing brackets on either side of the hole. I'll have that done at the 600 mile service. Until then I don't believe I've ever bottomed out a rear shock that I know of so it should be ok. This started out in India where some roads can be rough.

Now Dean tells me he's going to add a pink wicker flower basket on the front and a bicycle bell.

And a photo of you on the front of said basket, to scare off oncoming traffic ahead!

Will not need a horn, in that case.

Yeah but it might have the opposite effect on wildlife.

Ah, I suspect that was the Jeep with no top full of girls in bikini tops who were hooting at us? Yeah, that was nice.

The only thing better than one well sorted FZ1, is two well sorted FZ1's

I'am getting there. The carbs are off the bike, and i will soon see, what is causing the poor running. Methinks the pilot jets are clogged, and who knows what else.

Done a number of things already, to get the bike where i would like it, for my taste. New project!

Dean

P.S. went for a ride today, with Santa Cruz pals, on my 2002 FZ1. Fifteen years old, 115,847 miles, and it still runs perfectly! 74 degrees today, here in central Ca.
