Hey there Houston riders sorry I didn't stop in Houston would have love to have ridden with you guys, but due to circumstances beyond my control (the wifes driving) I was forced to bypass Houston and go straight to Corpus, sorry again guys I'll have to take a ride one day to Houston.
Well, I picked up my bike on Saturday and had it back in there this morning. Bad lifter. OE is shipping out another one as soon as they get their shipment in (tomorrow) hopefully. While I had her up, she was running stronger than ever, just a little noisy. Now I play the waiting game again... at least its not nice weather [/emoticons/emotion-5.gif]
Well, I'm getting pretty tired of the same old response of "they should be releasing them tomorrow." So now they managed to tease me with having my bike for one day of riding and now it's sitting again just waiting on a stupid lifter. Sure would be nice if OE would pay for the labor costs of having to pull the bad lifter out and putting the good (hopefully) one back in. I am not a happy camper right now.
Houston Warriors, waz up? Yeh, I was wondering myself where the thread went to. I still haven't had a chance to meet up with the local Warriors either at the track or get together...Weather looks good for the weekend. Anyone riding saturday evening or sunday? I'm in the Baytown/Mont Belvieu area and up for a good ole' V-Rod hunt...Alright, I'll be nice...I know there are a few guys living in Baytown with Warriors I just haven't been able to see any when I'm out ridin'. I went out in my SS last night just to check a few spots out and there are quite a few car nuts hangin out off Center St. in Deer Park behind the new Sonic. It's on the corner of Center and I believe Pasadena Blvd. This used to be a pretty good hang out back in the day when I was "forced" to participate in some late night, back road test and tuning with my compadres'...It would be pretty cool to get a few of us together and hang out...Any other suggestions?
i think this sat (maybe) a few of us r6 guys are going riding thru some twisties. not sure the area/road yet, but maybe i'll hint ya and ya'll can amaze some of em with what ya'll can do. would it be cool (on a warrior and by cool i mean 'safe-wise') to do twisties 2-up? laters, joey
Sounds like a plan there Joey. Only problem is that it is "supposed" to rain for the rest of the week/weekend. I'm trying to meet up with some of the R1-forum guys at JCI this Saturday night just to BS and such. I'll post up about this ride as well if you want. Larger group would be interesting.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
Finally picked up my bike from having the belt replaced. Had to take her out for a bit tonight to get reaquainted with her.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif] Next up: clutch, 2nd & 5th gear, rear tire, head work, and remap.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
If any of you ladies are interested and check this thread this evening: I'm heading up to JCI (James Coney Island) on Westheimer to go check out the bike scene. I'm meeting a couple of guys from the r1-forum up there along with the service manager of Texas Yamaha on his R1. C'mon out if you can............if not........bring it next friday night. Be there about 10:30ish.[/emoticons/emotion-2.gif]
Hey Johnny, I went out of town this past weekend. We have a lakehouse on the water in Livingston. I had to play on my two of my other Yamaha's. I'm up to five now(just paid off the Warrior and bought a FZ6 to put around on). The **** things never quit. Is the JCI thing on Westheimer on Fridays? The one in Humble is on Saturdays.
OK, so now I have my bike back. After waiting 9 weeks, the guy who had been working on it stayed late so I could pick it up. As much as I hate to say it after waiting all this time, he did a great job. The bike runs great and it didn't have a single speck of dirt on it. He really took good care of it. I'm offshore right now, but I want to ride when I get back!
Hey Ken. When are you coming back? We'll ride to meet up with Johnny at James Coney Island or at the Houston Raceway Park. I'll be going back to the dragstrip again soon. I bought a Vance and Hines Propipe, Churchkeys V-BAK and a Power Commander since my last visit to the track. I'd like to see an improvement.
Any of you guys know anything about the Southern Cruisers Riding Club?
How many Warrior Riders remain in Arkansas? I'm in Bryant, AR just south of Little Rock. I'd like to know how many Warriors on this forum still ride their's around here. I'd also love to get a Warrior ride scheduled for this spring.
