  1. after I patch up all my plastics and decide on a color, I will be using Plasti dip for all the plastics. It is easy to use and I can change colors every few years.
  2. Dang, I spent too much time away from the forum, I live in Las Vegas and always jump at the chance to meet up with fellow Venture riders.
  3. If you have an MK1, you should ride that over there. I will be riding my 84 to test ride the 18 whenever one gets semi close to me. show everyone where the bike came from.
  4. I syncd the carbs (they were way off), I also adjusted everything to fit me better (handle bars, foot pegs and controls. I also flipped my shifter over so now I am 1 up and 4 down; Moto GP style. I removed the leg guards as well.
  5. Where in Texas did you work? The only reason I ask is because my dad worked at TU Electric in Glen Rose TX when I was very young.
  6. Can you take a picture and tell us what all you replaced and where the air is coming from? I am a visual thinker
  7. I have driven both the M1078 and the M1083 on several occasions. I have also driven a Toyota Hilux, a Dawoo, and a funny looking Hyundai minivan. http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j169/coffeyR6/MISC/634735_6002_160_0001.jpg http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j169/coffeyR6/MISC/m1078_lmtv.jpg
  8. Oh I definitely dropped the bike. That is where the $5 donation came from. I am 5'7" 180lbs; when a 900lb bikes starts to go over, I let it fall.
  9. Yeah, I got the notification about needing to pay dues last week. I was being lazy about logging on and doing it. So today I was riding my 84 and decided to stand up and see just how comfortable it is (puc's favorite riding position according to his video). It was quite comfortable, but I have a back rest on my bike that fell forward. So I no longer had a seat. I tried a few things to get the seat rest up before finally thinking that I could stop in front of my house and just straddle it and lean left a little more than normal. So half way through that idea I find myself stepping off my bike completely. Luckily no neighbors saw me. Of if they did, they haven't said anything yet. On the upside hoping on to pay the $5 was a perfect time to pay my dues. So you all are stuck with me for 1 more year.
  10. I can store it with my bike and trailer. I happen. To live in Las Vegas.
  11. Let me know when you get anywhere near NV. I have no family for 2 weeks, so I can take off on Genesis whenever. 405-208-1370
  12. Glad you made it back and were still able to have a good trip despite all the set backs.
  13. Just incase this was for me, here are some pics to hold the hounds off until I get back from Texas and get some good pictures and a video or two. http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j169/coffeyR6/84%20Venture/PHOTO_20170624_214527.jpg http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j169/coffeyR6/84%20Venture/PHOTO_20170624_214545.jpg http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j169/coffeyR6/84%20Venture/PHOTO_20170624_214614.jpg Her trailer and hitch are in front of her. I will be installing the hitch when I get home after doing some slight modifications to it.
  14. Well, I leave in two days and have all but decided to take my car. I want to take the bike, but my left arm has been hurting for a few weeks now. I think I may have a pinched nerve in my shoulder. Pulling the clutch in is kind of painful in traffic. Taking the car also allows me to help the wife out by taking the bad kid with me. That will at least give my wife a peaceful ride to Texas in the Van. I am coming back 2 weeks before them, so the ride back will still be tough. When I get back, I will do a pretty long ride out to an old abandoned town where Puc and Tippy took refuge 2 or 3 years ago so I can look for their artwork. After all, Genesis has been asking to stretch her legs for a week now.
  15. I haven't left yet. I am leaving Monday. It will still be hot which still makes me nuts. I am riding to and from work everyday day this week to make sure the bike is good to go. "Genesis" is one smooth lady. I might head north before I make my return trip. It will depend on how tired I am.
