Hey Chuck, drive the 928! Only if it's ready, of course.

A few hours ago at the Tractos Supply getting bolts for a TV mount.  She's about 96% now.



But I really haven't the resources to do the trip anyway, Jim.

Well...shucks...I don't think that much of a ride would be good for my C-10...since coming from Colorado (6600' elevation) to Arkansas (400' elevation)...the idle seems to have increased 400 rpm...makes me think it might be running leaner...and, I don't have time to do anything about it before the ride...

Maybe next time...

CRocker, wish you could be there. But I do understand..

NOTE: Coming down in elevation, it "is" running leaner. (but it's probably closer to the correct mixture)

Question; Do you have stock jetting, or did you install smaller jetts?

If you have stock jetting; you "ARE" running rich in Colorado.

If you installed smaller jetting, (I agree) you might be a bit lean in Ark.
If so, you can decrease air by simply restricting air flow at the airbox intake port.

If you have the 2 minute Mod,,,, you already know how to do that.

Ride safe, Ted

PS: Cliff, don't forget to bring "your" makeup kit.
            In case it rains and smears your mascara..   ;)

Ok Ted and I will be headed to the Bostonian Inn Friday afternoon to spend the night. If anyone needs to holler
at us my cell # is (903) 918-4014. Looks like we will have about 10 to 12 riders as of right now. So whoever is
coming we will see ya'll Saturday morning. Be safe.
Saturday morning we will be making a stop in DeQueen at the Exxon on the corner of Ark 41/59 for a break and gas
stop if any of the Arkansas bunch would like to jump on board. We will also make a quick stop in Mena if anyone needs
fuel before we go over the mountain. Lets do this !!!

We'll miss you, Jim. Very sorry you can't make it. We'll do some "freeze riding" for you! Ha! It's going to be a chilly weekend. I am so ready for a change from the Texas blast furnace. We hit 86ºF on Wednesday. Yuck! Well, the humidity was down, so it was really an OK day. I'm just really ready for fall and winter temps for a change.

Wow, that sounds like a great group, Jim. I had no idea that many folks are going. I'm aiming to get to my hotel in Texarkana by about 4:00 PM. I'll see you guys for dinner later on. Give me a holler when you get to New Boston.

Ride safe, Ted

You will run into it and some rain then clearing and cooler.

You all keep an eye for deer...... :violent-smiley-007:  with the cooler weather the rut will be full on!

Have fun and watch for yellow line crossing jerks on the Talimena.

Sorry I am not there to see Ted disappear in my mirrors!!!!!! :nananana: :motonoises: :nananana: :motonoises: ;D

Ride free,

Ok 7 brave riders embarked this morning from New Boston Tx in sub freezing temperatures (well it was 39 degrees) and now we are stuffing our faces at the Queen Wilhelmina Lodge buffet. We picked up an 8th rider (Cliff met us at the lodge) so the adventure continues. Details at 11.

Ok back safe and sound (and cold). We did about 275 miles for the day. Thanks to all who braved the weather for a fun day and some good food and socializing.

Home safe after a great day of riding, 504 miles round trip-just over 12 hours.  Really liked seeing the fall colors changing some where as further south we still have green leaves just beginning to change.  Thanks for organizing this little outing....
