My Dad has been having a few problems with the Triumph (Hummer isnt going to make the trip)
Here is a message I got from him earlier today.

Got a morning of work on the Trackmaster Trump to try to get it running for a bike show before the Salt Ghost showing.
Right now it needs the details.
Mag wires, carb tidbits, chain.
Then it should just start right up, right?
Just found out the other day that the bottom end on the HD Hummer was seized up.
So the trip to Maxton may just be made in the mini van with the Trackmaster strapped down in back.
Back to work.

I always start off the trip thinking it will go by quick. Never.
Its not too bad, its as good as its going to get. I can even take a pit-stop to go to the MN Off-Highway Vehicular park.. Do I count for that?
May be a bit too muddy tonight.
Out the door.

Oil and gas and it should be running. If all goes to plan, we will be heading down to Maxton, NC the 27th-30th of the month to attend the last ECTA speed trials located in NC. They are getting kicked out of the location and moving to Ohio.
|New addition of a mile bar|
Rule books still need to be checked to make sure Bonneville guidelines will suffice.
My brother Alex will be driving over from Alabama and sounds like Fred may be down to take the trip. Hopefully my brother Chris will be able to get out of work to make the trip too.
Hopefully this works out, its weird not being around for any of the preparation.

The Continental tkc-80 lasted me about 6,500 miles and still had yet to hit the wear marker. Completely satisfied with the tire, but variety is a spice or something.
Heidenau K-60 Scout. 130/80-17
It should last longer, doesn't feel as gummy as the tkc. No more boot grinders for me.
Im currently at 16,200 miles About 9,000 for how long ive had the KLR
I have a tkc on the front too. Its doing everything I ask of it. Thinking of doing a swap for a 19" wheel once this tire wears out.
Other then the swarms of box elders and a leap of faith by my father with a stove to catch him, it has been a great weekend at The Land.
|Hopefully Bens advice on the carb manifolds will bring this baby back to life|
