Also, I'm gonna sell some of my non runners, so if anyone's interested, let me know.

    Sure it isn't "wenching time"? Good idea or maybe just an old get together and BS about peds.

    A drink and dinner sounds good. Looks like another couple of weeks at least before we are going to get some good riding weather.

    I'd love to get together again. Maybe we could help Lindsay get her non runners running

    Let's set a date. I've ridden twice so far this year. Not nearly enough.

    My bikes haven't seen the lite of day yet....

  • At 3/26/2006 2:23 PM, Blogger motormatic said…

    i've been riding to work and back almost every day for a few weeks. it was pretty chilliy out there but it's getting better:) my bike's running like crap though:(

    A Wrenching Day! Well, what a concept. Sounds as if it could be a good day out, Lindsey, What bikes do you have that could use a little TLC?

    and which ones are you thinking of moving up and out, Non running or otherwise?

    Hey Guys I'm new too! I rode to work today. Just checked on her and she's sitting in a little puddle of gas confirming a suspected petcock issue. I'd love to join in a wrench day.

    Lindsay, we met briefly last fall on Queen St. We were both riding to work. I'm up on the corner of Del. and Dav. with Zak.

  • At 3/27/2006 2:14 PM, Blogger david said…

    joolie, do you turn your petcock to 'off' when you kill the engine? If you don't, gas will continue to gravity-feed into the carb, flood it, and make it look like it just peed itself. My Grande does the same thing.
    Well, how about Sunday at Squirly's, 2-3 p.m.?

    A "wrenching" day sounds great as there seems to be a few people with some ped fixin needed.

    Sunday's good for me. So David... where and what is a "Squirly's"?

  • At 3/27/2006 4:39 PM, Blogger Joolie said…

    Hey David - Yeah it's off, but the plastic petcock doesn't really sit horizontal-like. I can feel the gas leak from the join.

    Anyone have a nice motobecane petcock?

    I'm in for Sunday at Squirly's. It's suppossed to be a beautiful day. Can't wait.

    Squirly's. where is it?

  • At 3/28/2006 10:22 PM, Blogger ilyae said…

    My ped is acting the same as joolie. Good eyes need.
    Drivig around though, in snowboard helmet.
    Do anybony knows what tasks i will require to pass at the m1 exam (parking lot, pylon test)

    I had that same issue with my ptecock a while ago, but I just wound up buying a new one.

    Another poor fool with a Moby? Those things aren't the most, ah, reliable of critters (yes... that's the one I need help fixing).

    Actually the Streetmate's dead right now too (took it out a few weeks ago, ran fine the day before just diiiiiied ugly), but I haven't played with it yet. I'm pretty sure the carb or fuel system's bunged up somehow and it's starving, so I just need to clean it out.

  • At 3/29/2006 11:05 AM, Anonymous motormatic said…

    ok, Sunday it is. but i still wanna do a wrench day soon. squirly's would be better for meeting new people though:)

    Bill, EVERY F**KING THING i own could use some tlc! haha!! mainly, i want that batavus hs50 running again. me and marshall worked so hard on it last year and as soon as we thought we had everything fixed we lost spark and i've had it with the thing!! it's my favourite moped ever but it's laughing at me. someone help me please??? haha.

    and i think it's time the vespas found a new home. i need the space.
