i went to the junkyard after work. then i came home and took the motorized bike out for its first run of 2014. thing gas 8 month old gas in it and still runs perfect. i swear i could dump diesel in the thing and it would still run.

That is a cool bike!

Some creature chewed up some wiring in the CS. I have been dreading fixing it. It'* mostly the fuel injection harness that needed fixing. I did not replace it yet, but I did solder it all back together, and it runs great without misfiring now. Just doesn't look right, so next time when I am at the yard I will find a good harness and swap it out.

I was so thrilled to drive this car and have it running right. If good weather ever shows up I will put insurance on it and drive it.

thanks nate. cutty looks good too. one day i hope to have a garage and a car that dont look chitty. LOL.

today i wired up the led tailgate strip on the new park ave, and also figured out why the reverse cam dont work unless i manually select it. for some reason unknown to me, the reverse lights are getting 0.6 volts. no clue why, and at this point im so frustrated with wiring, im done touching it.

took the scoot out after to blow off some steam. let me tell you, its COLD riding at 50+ mph in 45*F wearing a sweatshirt. lol.


took a couple videos. the speed run video, turn down the volume. the wind noise is ungodly. didnt want to push it over the speedlimit, so i only got to about 45. also, ignore the open battery cover and hanging turn signal. they are both on order and should be here in a week or so.

when i stopped to get the mail and did the walkaround video, i had a guy offer to buy the scoot on the spot. so im in a pretty good mood now!
