Central Fl. Green Swamp Ride

I'm meeting Brian tomorrow morning, I'm going to check out his new bike then were going to do this: Green Swamp Tour – Northeast of Tampa
Sorry about the late notice but the weather has been unpredictable lately
(for Chrissake it was in the 50's last week) It is supposed to be beautiful, low to mid 70's and blue skies. If anyone else is in let us know.

239 miles today, I'm tired of sitting. I met Brian and his fleet of motorcycles today... cool cat, I'd ride with him anytime. We swapped bikes for a while and I was lucky to sample a power commander, Corbin seat, a header with a low pipe, F4(?) forks and dirt bike style bars all at once. I don't have any of these goodies. The ride itself was pretty rural (compared to the bumper to bumper shit I live in) and there were a few nice twisty parts. Unfortunately, I wangled up the directions and I think we missed the best part. I just opened my third St. Pauli Girl and I still haven't sat down Let's do it again man!

On a side side note: Brian is torturing himself on wheter to hang on to his "steady" or get with that nasty new bitch that showed up. (that GSXR is schweet and a serious bargain)

Any of you floridians mechanically inclined and near indian harbour beach? My brother has a 72 gt550 that needs a little bit of lovin on the electrical side (pretty sure it's just a battery since he didn't run it for a few months.) I'm sure he'd be more than happy to feed you and liquor you up for your troubles! He'd also loooove to get the electric start working, but as it stands we're not even sure that the starter is in place. Ever tried kicking over a 38 year old 3cyl 2 stroke? Yeah, I did once and then didn't have the energy to ride it. I rode anyway just to get the experience, then 2 blocks from "home" it died again. I said f'it and just pushed it

Hit me up via PM if you want to help and I'll put you two in contact.

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

I can walk him through some trouble shooting over the phone, basic stuff. I have a fair data base between my ears.

Tell him to join here for sure, "professional" opinions are plentyful around here I love it. tried to join another forum (I know I know but I need INFO) Three days later my thread has 2 replies

I've told him about this place more than once, he has yet to join though. He's not mechanically inclined, otherwise I'd have done the phone thing before asking for HEEEEEEEEEEEELP I'm almost certain the battery is a big part of the problem, charging system may be involved as well but without a good battery it's hard to tell Hondad has yet to hear from the brother, but it's to be expected. He's just wrapped up school and is prepping for vacation. I'll hit you guys up again if Hondad isn't successful. Thanks again for offering help!
