  1. The XX is an incredible machine, sold mine a while back GLWS
  2. That is a very nice way of telling you they overcharged you the first time Nice to some companies coming clean like that. I sell a lot of stuff on eBay and can relate with that mentality. There are cases where the actual shipping is a lot less than I billed, I send the customer the difference back. Good way to do business IMO.
  3. McBrides Yamaha in St. Joseph MO has a couple of new Bolts in stock I know he'll sell at cost, making them a steal. 816-364-4311 is his number, it is a old school dealership, not a boutique. Mike McBride is who you would want to talk with. I've been lusting after the deep green cafe version for a while, just no new bikes in my future.....
  4. Found a take-off video http://vid1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/goeway2012/CAM03316_zpsbwbnreoz.mp4
  5. You can find complete Chinese body kits in the $500 range, but you generally will need someone who knows what they are doing to get it to fit right. As much as they want to say it, they usually don't bolt right up, takes some fitting...... Good luck, glad you're OK and able to enjoy some of those awesome roads in the area. My son goes to school in Rolla and I've been hitting Akers Ferry for floats since the late 1960's as a kid. Nice place to be
  6. That's turn key "pre-flown", he bought the plane from a friend who has more than he needed. It needed a little work, but $5K and he was flying. No telling how much he has in it now, I know he wanted and obtained "more power".....
  7. Amen, it is hard to find it much better than the Current River. Normally I do Akers Ferry, have them haul me upstream for a 4 hour float back. "If I can make it, I will be there."
  8. Seems safe - http://vid1167.photobucket.com/albums/q630/goeway2012/CAM03307_zpsedptvjje.mp4
  9. Here is one of my friends (Randy) in the NW part of the state - He says he likes it, but motorcycles are easier and far more comfortable. You're not talking a lot of money, Randy said the had around $5K in his.
  10. Sorry for your loss. Good reminder to ride like we're invisible, also, plan on anyone and everyone pulling out on you. We lost a 22 year old here in Columbia earlier this weekend, the classic car made a left in front of him. http://www.columbiamissourian.com/news/local/mu-student-killed-in-motorcycle-accident-at-stadium-and-u/article_5069476a-7159-11e6-a863-bb8c336dd319.html

  12. Great video's for little money. My father has a really nice ink pen video camera, he loves it. Wears it a lot and gets some funny video. He forgot it was on one time, had it in his pocket and used a public bathroom, that one really made him laugh.
  13. Here is information on how you can get to a petition - http://show-mecannabis.com/take-action/pet...ning-petitions/
  14. When I grew up, I saw alcohol do a lot of damage to a lot of people, marijuana was not a saint, but it seemed to cause less "strife". I've yet to see "a stoner" beat the crap out of anyone for little to no reason, but I'm not really voting for the recreational aspects of pot. I know someone who has MS, fibromyalgia, some brain damage from an accident that was not her fault and when she tells me marijuana helps her feel better and has fewer side effects than the ultra expensive drugs the doctors give her, I find it difficult to argue with her. And I know some retired elderly people, some who live in nursing homes, who have told me that marijuana helps them sleep and just make it through the day, enjoyably, for less money and with fewer side effects that the pharmaceuticals they are being given, well, how can anyone argue against that? Here are a couple of links with a little more info - Wiki Info About Dan Viets
  15. I do not understand the rational for keeping it illegal.
  16. Ah, I should of made this a poll! What great software - Poll Added!
  17. Prohibition never worked before, this seems like a no brainer, no pun intended.
  18. News Releases FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Monday, November 07, 2011 Contact: Laura Egerdal, (573) 526-0949 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting (573) 526-0949 end_of_the_skype_highlighting Two Initiative Petitions Approved for Circulation for 2012 Ballot Jefferson City, MO – Secretary of State Robin Carnahan today announced that two initiative petitions relating to cannabis have met state standards for circulation. The ballot title for the first petition relating to cannabis reads: Shall the Missouri Constitution be amended to: legalize cannabis (commonly known as marijuana) for individuals 21 years or older; make medical cannabis available to individuals with a physician's recommendation including those under 21 with parental or legal guardian consent and physician supervision; create licensing processes for operation of cannabis establishments; release individuals incarcerated or on probation or parole for non-violent, cannabis-only offenses which would no longer be illegal and expunge all records related to such offenses; and allow the legislature to enact a tax on the retail sale of dried cannabis up to $100 per pound? Annual state government operating costs would increase by at least $1 million with the total increase being unknown. Those costs would be offset by an unknown increase in fee and tax revenues. The fiscal impact to local governmental entities is unknown with some increase in revenue possible. The petition, which would amend Article IV of the Missouri Constitution, was submitted by Mr. Dan Viets, 15 North 10th Street, Columbia, MO 65201. The ballot title for the second petition relating to cannabis reads: Shall Missouri law be amended to: legalize cannabis (commonly known as marijuana) for individuals 21 years or older; make medical cannabis available to individuals with a physician's recommendation including those under 21 with parental or legal guardian consent and physician supervision; create licensing processes for operation of cannabis establishments; release individuals incarcerated or on probation or parole for non-violent, cannabis-only offenses which would no longer be illegal and expunge all records related to such offenses; and allow the legislature to enact a tax on the retail sale of dried cannabis up to $100 per pound? Annual state government operating costs would increase by at least $1 million with the total increase being unknown. Those costs would be offset by an unknown increase in fee and tax revenues. The fiscal impact to local governmental entities is unknown with some increase in revenue possible. The petition, which would amend Chapters 105, 195 and 263 of the Missouri Revised Statutes, was also submitted by Mr. Dan Viets, 15 North 10th Street, Columbia, MO 65201. Before any constitutional changes can be brought before Missouri voters in the November 2012 election, signatures must be obtained from registered voters equal to eight (8) percent of the total votes cast in the 2008 governor's election from six of the state's nine congressional districts. For statutory changes, signatures must be obtained from registered voters equal to five (5) percent of the total votes cast in the 2008 governor's election from six of the state's nine congressional districts. Signatures on behalf of all initiative petitions for the 2012 ballot are due to the Secretary of State's office by no later than 5 p.m. on May 6, 2012. Before circulating petitions, state law requires that groups must first have the form of their petition approved by the Secretary of State and Attorney General. The Secretary of State then prepares a summary statement of no more than 100 words and the State Auditor prepares a fiscal impact statement, both of which are subject to the approval of the Attorney General. When both statements are approved, they become the official ballot title. http://www.sos.mo.gov/news.asp?id=1027
  19. You'll need more than just a valve adjustment, and I'm pretty sure the amount the mechanic quoted you would cover it all. And there is a difference in a valve adjustment and a valve adjustment. Most shops will make sure the valves are within spec - a perfectionist will make sure all have the same clearance, that takes more time and costs more. After any valve adjustment, the carbs need to be synched and all of the normal checks and adjustments made.
