    Nice Job Gene. So the new carb work is helping, or maybe it was just good air for racing. If I would have thought about it sooner than I did I would have gone out there in my Mustang. After I went to the GCC swap meet, and then to a silly car show I thought about going to speedworld cause it was only noon by the time I was done. But should have just gone out there earlier and ran the daily driver.

    We left the house on Sunday morning.The temp guage on the bike said it was 39.When we got to Casa Grande it said 37. There was something wrong with that picture. 4 in the afternoon on the way home it read 52. Had a great time though. 4-5 hundred bikes, I'd guess.:)

    Im pretty sure i decided for sure to go to a mechanical pump. So today ill be working on the transmission stuff as much I can with the parts I have. The cleaning up some wiring and removing the fuel stuff. My new theme will be to have it as simple and clean as I can, no more excesss and flashy stuff. As always, if anybody wants to come hang out and throw tools around you are welcome to come, and even bring your own stuff to work on.
