fergy Gordon, that had to be a great feeling, hearing the engine fire up after so long. I'm so glad for you buddy! Can't wait to hear about your riding, but take your time. It will come.

Good news! It started after sitting for over a year.

Well, today I installed a new MF-AGM battery, turned the key and after 10 seconds on the starter the old girl fired right up on full choke with nary a hiccup. It was about 70* F outside, and I let her warm up for 5 minutes or so and gradually pushed the choke off. It hesitated a bit as I rolled on some throttle, so it may need a little more Seafoam to get the fuel power circuits cleaned out.

So now some servicing, cleaning and polishing begin. If I get my leg healed up enough to ride this season, the Cosmic Lady is going to be ready mechanically and shined up. I might even try to get her into a local show and shine this summer too. I am psyched.

I probably should have put this in the goats belly, but the power of a little Seafoam in the tank and carbs is proved again!!
