      Nope, 100% true, it was tuned with (apparently) a small vac leak, now there isn't one, and it runs sorta crappy. Sigh, not the first time (nor probably the last).




      .....Aaaaaand I just got an email from ECS letting me know the hose I ordered really truly is no longer available. Anywhere.

      My new commuter: 1983 Honda C70 Passport. It has been sitting in storage most of its life; the Texas plate on it had a 1985 registration sticker. Only 1150 original miles.

      Flushed out the gas tank, cleaned the carb, added a fresh battery and changed the oil and it fired up on the second kick. I love old Hondas! I also swapped out the original (), crusty, 29 year old tires for a new set of Michelins.

      It runs like a top now, and I just ran my first tank of gas through it: 107 mpg. Not bad for a ~$1000 investment. And, since they still build this model in at least a dozen countries, parts are readily available and stupid cheap.

      Thanks.

      Yeah, almost all of my commuting and errands are within 5-10 miles of my apartment, so I really don't need more than this. If I need to haul anything big, I can always borrow my buddy's truck.

There is a greyish-blue they have that is pretty nice, but all out of the superior green.

      Good to hear. My butt and thighs are disproportionately large compared to my height and waist, which makes finding pants that fit and are comfortable tough. I'm going to try them out.

      Bought a new mortgage yesterday (refi). Locked in at 3.25% with only the VA funding fee out of pocket, which is 0.05% of the principal. Took off $200 from my mortgage payment so I am pretty happy about that.

      Where the heck were those, sporting goods store? Damn "nice" stores have even gone to the birds( read, true pencil legs with no ass or junk to make room for). I actually wear boots a lot...so fitting over the shoes is a must.

      I blame REI for their used gear sale and 20% off coupon and friendly staff that's too helpful and informative.
      Pearl Izumi All-Road


      Shimano SPD A520


      And CycleOps Wind indoor trainer for when it's raining and/or my sense od self-preservation outweighs my drive to get fit.


      Been cycling in the mornings 5-7 miles, signed up for Tour de Cure 2013, am hoping to upgrade to a full road bike down the line. The bumpy ride is chronicled over in the cycling forum if anyone will need a good laugh after I get going with the clipless setup.

      Various 1.8t coolant flanges... To fix the cars perpetual coolant issues.

      Items that have died.
      1x Thermostats
      2x Thermostat Housing
      1x Coolant Temp Sensors
      1x Water Pump
      1x D. Side Coolant Flange
      1x Rad Flange

      Not counting OEM that came on the car... Id think I'd be done with the leaks by now.
