Awesome. I 'preciate the offer. The Honda's running pretty good at the moment. Had trouble starting when I first got it. I just thought the thing didn't like to start cold, but it turns out the choke wasn't working. Had to tighten a spring which engaged a butterfly in the carb, and now it's all good. Also had a problem with the automatic petcock, so we ripped that out, and no more problems. Starts like a champ now.

You're probably only 15 minutes from Thompson when you're ready to start track riding
Yeah, Eastford is at bit bumlefuck. Hah, track riding, maybe on a lawn mower at this point! Where do you ride? I don't even know where there are tracks around here.
