Post subject:  nearly there!

Well I only have two months left of my sentance to serve, I had to surrender my licence on June 19 2010, the blackest day of my life when I was hospitalised from suffering a fit. I only passed my test on 27th May! 27 May til 19 June! that's all I got with my trusty '82 CX500 and it still sickens me! Ever had such a feeling of rage where you feel like you're burning up :evil: , want to cry :cry: and scream :x all at once? Every day since 19 June! Damn that day! But I started out on a lighter note and after venting the bile I cannot wait til the Beast is rolling again! Two months left of what has felt like a prison sentance and I'm gearing up! Oil change done, polished my rocker boxes, undersealed and polished my front mudguard, bandaged the cacky downpipes and polished the shiny rear of the Motad 2-1. It also has LED spotlights fitted, it's ready to go and runs beautifully! Two months that will feel like the last ten months with all this gorgeous weather and salt in the wound missing the Ride of Honour to Eden Camp and on Tuesday 10th May 7:30 at Squires a CX GL meetup is planned! Two months..... Pray for my sanity!

Hope you are better.I doubt I'll make the ride due to lack of finances :(

When do you get your licence back?

No re-jetting but I did do a little exhaust mod that helps smooth the power,

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=324&p=1667&hilit=harley#p1667

They will run fine straight on but there seemed a power surge around 5,000/6,000 rpm.Also the mod helped bring back the mpg a little as this dropped with them on but that may just be spirited throttle use as they sound and feel so good :)
