As soon as I get mine driveable (rebuilt carb), taking the top off is #1 on my list.

Deciding if it's too cold to ride your bike is one thing... you can take a different form of tranportation.

Realizing it's fucking freezing and yuou took your top off way too soon on your Jeep is a noter thing. :tonka:

I took my bike for a ride wednesday night, a short one though still can't seem to get it jetted right, FYI for all of you DON'T EVER BUY DYNO JET KITS I installed how they said and was 15 sizes bigger than i supposedly needed and still running lean, then they wanted to sell me more at normal price.

Oh and I took the bikini top off my jeep yesterday and put the soft top oncause I was sick off all the snow inside it.

It's a bitch getting the soft top back on when you realize how cold it is outside, especially if you don't have a garage or somewhere to let it warm up first.

Ugh, I need to do that. I really wanted to take mine out, and then realized the battery is probably dead and the oil needs to be changed.
