Similar issue when I filled White Buell at the 76 in Elma. When I refilled after running the tank down the issue disappeared.

I'm in the middle of replacing the fuel pump on Black Buell. What a Royal PITA. Had to remove a bunch of stuff to gain access to the fuel pump assembly. When I turned the key on at startup it started making ungodly noises.

A decent aftermarket pump doesn't cost that much. If you're stripping the bike down that far suggest you replace the pump and the low fuel level sensor. The wire to the sensor looks hair thin and breaks easily. The Buell's new sensor was only about $12.

I don't see the school bus, so I'm gonna presume that there was no off roading on this ride.

well, that's true if you don't count the gravel-and-dust tour we took of the PT boat-yard.

i went out this morning to tacoma for coffee and a piece of squash bread at Bluebeard (recommended).

It fizzle-rained on me. Rain rain rain all the way home until about Olalla.

Now I'm home and I just finished wiping-down the Origame Sea-Dragon.

And now the sun's out and I have the day off.

Grass is mowed.

Wife's at work.

I've got a hundred dollar bill burning a hole in my pocket and nowhere to go.

But this - traffic on the highway is already verkakte.

What is it with people dragging shit around behind their vehicles like the Beverly frigging Hillbillies?

Boats and horses and house-trailers and and yard equipment and on and on.

I saw a flatbed truck with a camper on it pulling another camper behind that.

Maybe I'll just listen to music in the garage, organize my toolbox, sweep (kidding. i use a leaf-blower) the garage floor...

Playlist follows: (retro, anyone?)























and then...



you get the idea......

Just took a shakedown ride after I completed the 12k service on the twin and my route took me to a spot overlooking 3. Anyway I expected to see a cavalcade of morons instead it was completely empty. Must be an accident or something.

BTW, Good taste in music. Except that first one.

My favorite is the SUVs that they still can't get all their shit into so they have a cargo carrier on the roof all the time. My wife and i call those Kiddie Kaskets because we have a running joke that they stick the kids in them to make room in the cabin for more "dear god please tell me we're having fun now" stuff.
