    The reason I purchased a 3/4 helmet is I have a lot of paint left over so I was thinking of spraying my helmet to match the bike. I purchased a white one so I can tape off the lines. This helmet is a cheap one......more than I thought it would be. It makes me want to go try on a Bell or something as this XXL still seams a little small. The padding on the sides are minimal............but for a helmet to throw on the mirror and "pose" at the local shows was really my intention so I might just make it work. Over the years I've received gifts helmet related and one of them is a pair of Dues Ex Machina goggles that I was going to wear when using this helmet but with the way it squeezes my face.........I may be tempted to get a bubble sheild.

    Well I almost sold this little girl today.

    I had it listed on ebay and got some bids, a bunch of questions and compliments.....and some advice. A local guy was going to purchase it so I pulled the listing. But then my wife said why am I selling it?? Weren't we going to ride the little 90s together?? So I told the guy it was not for sale any longer. Ever since I got that Electra glide we have been running it non-stop. 22300 miles since last december.....all leisure weekend rides or multiple day overnighters. I thought it would be good to thin out some stuff since wrenching to me now is checking tire pressure but I guess it stays. I'll probably just sell my CB750 since that is really on the back burner.

    It really is more fun to ride than wrench.....or maybe I'm just getting older.

    as good a reason as any to keep it.

    To be honest it really doesn't feel like we road that much. These big twins just eat up miles and before you know it....it's a 400 mile day.

    Riding this little 90 for say 30 miles is exhausting.

    Beautiful day to take the little ones out for a quick ride. The Yamaha was a little hard starting....probably cause it hasn't been ridden for around a month or so. The Honcho already plugged the fuel valve...again. probably rust setiment.

    Now to put them back and forget about them....only to bitch and moan why it will be a harder start in a couple of months or so.

    Don't know if this applies in your case. Are you draining the float bowl when you put them away? If not, when you drag them out, drain the bowl and then turn on the tap. It seems to help a whole bunch in certain cases. Basically over a few weeks with the bowl vented to atmosphere, all the easily ignited stuff vaporizes. Especially in cases where the fuel is crap to start with.

    Full disclosure........ I'm not diligent with that. Mainly because I tell myself I will start in a couple of days/a week/etc....only for it to sit 2 or 3 months..sometimes more.

    I usually let it run dry but that's not always thorough. I always run stabil fuel stabilizer in things I don't use regularly.
