Wow.  That was an eyefull of info.  :great:

Thanks MOB.

Truthfully, the LIABILITY is what I worry about most of all these days.  It is REAL, and the advice to let the pro's handle the scene is really the best one.

Imagine coming upon a crash victim, and accidentally moving them and causing a permanent spinal issue.  :-\
Bad for BOTH of you.

I'm already hearing the silent "grumbling" amongst the COG party planners when contemplating the liability of even the most simple First Aid course.  Yep -- I understand.

Nevertheless, this is good dialogue, and great input.   :great:

MOB: no mention of Solar Blankets for shock mitigation??  Is that too "active" of a measure for a non-trained first responder? 
Comes in handy for cold days, running out of gas, or getting stranded at elevation too!  :rotflmao:


Nate, There are laws to protect the unprofessional first responder. It is actually called the Good Samaritan Law. I hate to copy and past, but I am going to do it in this case since Wiki says it so much better.

"Good Samaritan laws offer legal protection to people who give reasonable assistance to those who are, or who they believe to be, injured, ill, in peril, or otherwise incapacitated. ... By contrast, a duty to rescue law requires people to offer assistance and holds those who fail to do so liable."

The 86-93 seat is pretty close, but you will probably still want to modify it.
Personally I got the Russell Daylong and now my 2 early saddles and my late saddle never get used.

Hopefully you will get a response. There are at least 2 Northeast Staff members within 50 miles of you NW and SW.

There is pretty good club activity in your area. During the riding season 4Bikes here on the forum organizes a monthly club meet & greet at the Ephrata 1st Sunday event. Our mid-May Spring Fling regional rally will be in Matamoras, and the club's national rally will be in Williamsport this July.

Remember that full (dues paid) club members receive a printed member directory and access to the online member list as part of the member benefits. This makes it easy to look for other members... or assistance if ever needed.

Personally, I'm not a red-liner and prefer the low end grunt (which the Connies are not supposed to have) according to most of the rag reviewers. I think my '86 only saw red line once right after I first got it just to see what it felt like. Admittedly nice. That bike went to 71K miles before any evidence of intake valves tuliping came to light. Unfortunately, it (and I) got run over when I was stopped for a red light coming home from work one night with a little over 72K on the clock.

My '95 has never been much past 6K, if even that high; saw no need. The Delkevics didn't seem to hurt the bottom end either, and once I re-jetted it and tweaked the needle height to take care of an ever-so-slight murmur just off idle, it still does. It pulls good from the bottom end, and always has. The valves clearances have basically stayed the same since around 15-20K.

Nope, don't need any cams or sprockets. If I do anything to the internals, it'll be to replace the cam chain. I haven't checked it lately, but it was still well within the Manual's service limits when I did awhile back (~80K ??). With 197K now on the bike, might be time.

This sounds like a ton of fun. How's the roads in that area? Got any you recommend?
The ZX Cams gave more high rpm power {more lift}, but reduced the low end toque a bit.
Bikes on which the cams were added,,,, sometimes also had the ZX carbs installed.

Ride safe, Ted
Spray paint or this stuff which kinda looks like a paint.  They say it "re-flows" the plastic.

This stuff is amazing.  I used it to recondition the wheel flares on my truck.  Unless the plastic is nicked, it'll make it look like new.  And 1-1.5 years later, they still look as good.

For those of you who do carry a first aid kit, open them up, read the the information
inside. This way you will have some idea of what you have to work with.
And for those of you who are worried about " liability" don't even stop, for that matter
don't even look. You could be held liable!

Thanks MOB.  Food for thought. 

BTW, I have taken these courses that you've mentioned through the Red Cross and St-Johns and they were, in fact, two to five day endeavors, which would be difficult to offer at a National (the very first of which I'm looking forward to attending this summer!).
