Kaw Carbs!

I started working on that Kaw this week.  When we picked it up it had been sitting for almost 2 years.  It would run but start up and idle were kinda rough. I rode it home, took it on the freeway up to 70 and it ran pretty good but it did need some tuning.  Soooooo let the tear down begin!!!

Vance & Hines Slip On Mufflers

At long last I was finally able to purchase slip ons for my bike!!!!  Vance and Hines 4" Monster Rounds!  Obviously this is an exciting moment.  Now the thing will finally sound like a Harley, not an air compressor.  I'll never forget the first day I pulled up to work on my new Harley.  There were a couple of ladies from work that were on their smoke break and they noticed I had a new bike.  They came over and said "Ooooooh, you got a new bike! What kind is it?"  I replied, "It's a Harley Street Glide".  They kinda looked it over told me how beautiful it was and then made the comment, "It doesn't sound like a Harley."  YAAAARG!!!!!  It was a bit embarrassing.  So the saving began for at least some slip ons to give it the rumble the thing deserves.

Cancelled Muenster Ride

Well our Muenster, TX ride was cancelled due to severe thunderstorms all over North Texas. Yup, all that red stuff is heavy downpour.  Not a lot of fun to ride around in that.  This gives me a chance to catch up with some blog graphic upgrades and some other exciting news.
