    Professor and i should know him, Me as a MAP guy??? lot of new things to me....

    BTW ray first picture where Virago stop....and after the clean up reasson for sop was obvious,, last time bike was in oil change b4 weekend,, thai guys turn my tank valve to reserve and i did not check that as it should be in Primary tank,, and when i was driving you can image the result's,, Carb's where full of foreing items from the tank, so no major issu, but one lern again from thais,, after every service check the tank valve (if you have manual one) that is't set for Primary....

    Since if i would had it on primary last time, i would made where i was plan to re-fill...

    Yeah i know the professor real well from my early days in Chiang Mai. I'm sure he had a lot of interesting stories to tell about some of our amusing entertaining youthful activities. Pls give him my regards when you next see him.
