Whats that, like a 2% increase? Why not just hang a turbo on it and be done with it?

Because Tim likes to ride places where any sort of throttle lag would be un-fun...

There's far more to hp than how tall the hill of beans is.

Re: Need Count: Who's attending Pashnit Gathering? - May 10

Count me in on the gathering in May, unfortunately I missed the last one. I think I'm going to give the camping experience a try this time out.

Getting back to business- if the weather's decent, I'll be there. Hope to bring some friends this time.

Does that thing have a seat belt so you can stay on or at least with the bike?

I am going to try and make this year, but I'll be credit card camping.

Not yet. keep lurking and Tim will have a specific thread up for the 2010 spring gathering in 2 or 3 months (usually the first or second full weekend in May). That will have all the info. This thread is actually the leftover of the 2009 spring gathering.

Re: Need Count: Who's attending Pashnit Gathering? - May 10

Specific thread forth coming as Matt said, however, Tim has already posted the date: 8 May 2010. I'm a bit conflicted now, I want to go to the spring gathering, but I'm nearly fully committed to a 5 day field trip with my youngest daughter leaving on the 17th. Which is also Ladywulf's and mine wedding anniversary. She might not appreciate me taking off for a weekend then the next week taking off for 5 days with a group of 6th graders! Also I gotta see what my work situation is by then, I'm hoping I'll have a different job. Working nights is starting to really suck. Might be a day ride in for me this year.


BTW, did I mention we got about 6 inches of new snow between yesterday to tonight? Looks like the Bandit is parked for a bit and my mood is starting to match my avatar perfectly!
