Sorry I've been away too long. Random short rides last couple seasons with no worries for the Jetfire. Couple weeks before ducks and planets came into a straight line for us to sell and move from the Bellevue Washington (Seattle) to Littleton CO (Denver) i was out on a ride in the cascade foothills, (North Bend) and sure enough she didnt see me coming to go left in front of her. Next thing I knew I was getting intimate with the hood of a jeep wagoneer! lucky she hit the breaks and not the fuel pedal! Long story short I cropped the mirror, tapped the shield, and limped home ok. I started repairs before the word we were off to CO. got her back together once we were setttled and have enjoyed a couple rides only to have the rec reg melt down again. Trailered home and have it apart awaiting the mend. New mosfet just came and I'll bebuild her better then she was. Looking forward to next spring rides!
