Were you there? One of the biggest experiences of my scootering life! Big thank you to Keith Terry for doing it and allowing us to! Big thank you to Chiselspeed for loaning handlebars to an Irish team of strangers. They kept us running and changed the form in our team from rock bottom to excitement ...

Re: Found a phbl sized foam filter for restricted room

Great post. Most towns here have someone who fixes lawnmowers. It could be a handy fix for anyone on the road who's lost an airfilter.
