Do you ever ride in the Gannie? Or is the X a mostly street beast? The 84 Shadow is it a project or a regular ride. When I bought my S83 they had and FZ8 that caught my eye but was just a little out of my price range wish I had enough I love me some Yamaha.

I'm yet to ride the ganaraska trails ,but have taken it to raglan pits and ridden to mosport via trails from there
I put shinko trailmaster tires on her ,but even went offroad b4 with the stock battlaxe street tires it had when i bought it new in2009
The shadow is a 500cc project bike ,thinking on a cafe style,
My 2013 FZ8 is my most recent bike, i bought used last year , i can't wait to take ithinking t on a real tour
Thinking NorthBay to start with ,barely rode it as yet
Sounds like you got similar style of bikes in the stable

Funny you mention Blackstock, that's where I bought the S83. I got it late Sept early Oct last year. The Maxim I have is on the road but is a work in progress. Spring can't come soon enough, love to go on a ride in the spring went on the Yamaha test ride that Blackstock had last year and found a few good road around there.

I hear you on the carbs mine did great with a few tanks and some carb cleaner. The biggest thing is my exhaust, there is a crossover box that I have pach welded but needs to be replaced they stopped making them years ago.
Don't know how to PM but would love to keep in touch and see about a ride in the spring. Maybe close your good weather I could start a thread seeing if there are any more out there in the southern Ontario area.

I was chatting with another rider in the parking lot of my local beer store
When i started to pull out, a car cut me off
I grab a handful of front brake, stall my bike and lay it down
The other rider asks if I'm ok,embarrassed , i say yeah
He proceeds out the driveway and pulls a
long wheelie up the street

For this reply to you, I clicked on the "Reply" link at the bottom of your post. That caused your post to show up in the text box inside the QUOTE brackets. Then I typed in my reply after your quote.

Now, to write this reply I simply started typing in the text box. Right below where it said "1 - 18 of 18 Posts". Although after I post this it will show 19 instead of 18.

I hope this explanation helps you.

Cool I needed to know that. I always just typed in the reply box and had no idea how to do this with the previous quote.
Thanks Brule
