Re: Stuart, Florida

Jeff, I'm a bit north of you in Melbourne. Once a year I drive my 1919 touring down your way in the winter just for a trip. If you interested I will PM you the next time I head south.

Re: Its running!!! Need help posting vid

I know my shifting was a little rough, I had to keep the RPM's up some to keep it running. Today's ride was much better.
