I guess that says it all. The big ride is looming. And I can't wait.
The scooter of choice continues to be Razzo, but Vanessa has been very sweet lately. She starts, idles and runs perfectly now. Her brakes and suspension are better than the others too.
But she has a coolant leak that I haven't sourced yet and the bendix is not working every time. Wouldn't want to be in the middle of a Cannonball day and have her not start. Her fuel gauge is also broken, but the light comes on when it is 25 miles from running dry.
But Razzo is a 2005, so the handicap is one point better. It is the fastest of the three, but does not idle well and there is a disturbing knock, that I am hoping is rollers. It also races when starting, both cold and warm. Something is up with the choke. The idle and choke issues probably will have me replacing both the choke and carburetor before the start.
I have tires, belts and exhaust gaskets ready to go.
