Who is going to the Fall Giro?

I plan on being there with the CA160, but my van is running wierd--hope it doesn't crap out. Its too far to ride to, and no way will the bike fit in the Miata....

I'll be there with my trusty Giro veteran CS3 Yamaha 200 as a back up to my CD175 Honda. I considered running my Bridgestone 7, but I think thats asking too much for a 1964 50 cc bike even though it does have 3 speeds and electric start. Really though its asking too much of me. I did 240 miles last Saturday on my Derbi 75cc GPR and am just now recovering. I bought the Derbi on eBay with a stock 50 cc motor. I had a 75cc motor on the shelf and I stuck that in and added a 21mm carb off my racer as well as the Metrakit SP pipe from my racer. She flies. If Tex (or any other Derbi savvy person) is reading this, what are standard hop-ups for the DERBI 75cc motor? Its not a kitted 50 but a stock 73 or 75 or whatever.
See you in Vermont,
Larry

larry,

thing needs a diet! you can shave 20+ pounds easily off that thing.........maybe fifty+ if you splurge and buy a tannermatic body and REAL gas tank in c. fibre!

go with a bigger carb. talk to camelhairy or someone on porting & polishing your cylinder.

run premix and good fuel and ditch the injector.

p.s. - i miss my old derbi!

Weird?

I thought it was " i before e, except after c and words that sound like neighbor and weigh "

I guess weird breaks that rule.

I was taught "i before e excpet after c with one weird exception." Funny, my spelling still sucks.

"their" is another exception.... doesn't really sound like neighbor or weigh to me.

I hate rules that aren't rules.

This section lists exceptions to the basic form; many will not be exceptions to the augmented forms. The word oneiromancies (studies into the meaning of dreams) breaks the rule twice, in both ways. The words deficiencies, efficiencies, sufficiencies, zeitgeist and einsteinium break the rule twice in the same way.
[edit]cie
Some groups of words have cie:
Inflections of words ending -cy (fancied, policies, etc.)
science and related words (conscience, prescient, etc.)
Other words ending -cient -ciency (ancient,efficiency, etc.)
Suffixes -ier or -iety after a root ending in -c: financier glacier society
[edit]ei not preceded by c
Some groups of words have ei:
Chemical names ending in -ein or -eine (caffeine, casein, codeine, phenolphthalein, phthalein, protein, etc.)
Many proper names (Breidi, Keith, Leith, Neill, Sheila, etc.)
Scottish English words (deil, deid, weill, etc.)
Prefixes de- or re- before words starting with i (deindustrialize, reignite, etc.)
Inflection -ing after verbs those ending in e which do not drop the e (being, seeing, swingeing, etc.)
Miscellaneous others: in the following lists, words are grouped by the sound corresponding to ei in the spelling. An asterisk* after a word indicates the pronunciation implied is one of several found. Most derived forms are omitted; for example, as well as seize, there exists disseize and seizure.
[e?]
these exceptions are excluded by the American version: beige, cleidoic, deign, dreidel, eight, feign, feint, freight, geisha, gleization, gneiss, greige, greisen, heigh-ho*, heinous*, inveigle*, neigh, neighbo(u)r, obeisance*, peignoir*, reign, rein, seiche, seidel, seine, sheikh*, sleigh, surveillance, veil, vein, weigh
eir as [??] (rhotic) or [??(?)] (non-rhotic)
these exceptions are excluded by the American version: heir, their

these exceptions are the only ones that slip through the strictest interpretation of the British version: either*, heinous*, inveigle*, keister, leisure*, monteith, neither*, obeisance*, seize, seizin, sheikh*, specie, teiid
or <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>, depending on happy tensing
these exceptions may slip through the British version: species
eir as [??] (rhotic) or [??(?)] (non-rhotic)
these exceptions may slip through the British version: weir, weird
[a?]
eider, either*, einsteinium, feisty, heigh-ho*, height, heist, kaleidoscope, leitmotiv, neither*, Rotweiller, seismic, zeitgeist
<img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>
counterfeit forfeit surfeit
<img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle> or <img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>, depending on weak vowel merger
foreign, reveille*, sovereign
<img src=icon_smile_question.gif border=0 align=middle>
heifer, leisure*, peignoir*
[æ]
reveille*
e and i in separate segments
albeit, atheism, deify, deity, onomatopoeia
