All I see is a bunch of guys in biking clothes drinking beer, with some bikes nearby :)

yea, Roy should have made some pics of us riding ;-)

but maybe he should have handed the cam over to Rudolf, who would more easily gain some distance to get off the bike and do some descent shots of others climbing hills ;-)

What a sorry bunch you are. :-)

I miss riding in europe, it's much prettier over there.

I hear the rides through England are particularly "warm" and "friendly" this time of year.

*giggles* realy liked this sentence:

" I came across two schools of thought: those who ride to eat and those who eat to ride."

I ride and then eat. It makes the food taste better.

I think you got it wrong...

its rather the ones, who like eating, and ride a lot to be able to eat more

and those who like to ride, but need food at some point to have enough power so they eat (or for example dring those high energy fluids which taste like red bull in _real_ sweet) else they would have to stop cycling...

I guess you're rather one of the first (like me ;-)

what a cool hack for a short roadbike ride through the pourin rain.

glad to have had a little more sophisticated rainstoppers today though.

Glad i did one more check before putting the motor back together.
yeah, that's bad.

Cylinder, fortunately, will probably be OK with some acid and a hone
through it.

My guess is it would have gone one, possibly two rides before *kboom*
and taking the cylinder, head, con rod, and bottom end out with it.

whew. thats bad.

I guess it would have lost compression before it broke in half totaly?

but scary that it continued on the other side of the slot, which one could probably take in account as proof that this was broken from start and is a waranty case...

Sheesh... GM pulled the advert, of course, but only after people complained.

Ok clue me in here, as someone who has taken a sudden interest in small engines.
What's that I'm looking at? Is that the cylinder itself or the case?

yes, the cylinder itself I guess.

the brown thing is the piston.

That's the piston in the cylinder/crankcase. Peeking in through the
intake where the reeds live (it's a 2-stroke engine).

The brown thing is the connecting rod ("con-rod"), piston attaches to
the con rod with a wrist pin, then the other end is attached to the
The little circle thing right below the crack is one of the injectors.

Pistons shouldn't have cracks in them.

Pull the cylinder off, this is the piston:
connecting rod/wrist pin visible through the hole in the piston for the

Looking through the cylinder:
Fortunately I was able to hone most of that out.
The hole in the transfer port in the back is the other upper injector.
Black part on the bottom is the steel "base gasket".
The holes/ports in the cylinder wall are the transfer ports, fuel is
injected into the
crankcase by the injectors, as the piston cycles it
pulls in the air/fuel mix from teh crankcase into the cylinder where
it's then compressed and ignited with a spark plug in the head.
( :
red part on top is the head, spark plugs stick out the top of that...
from top to bottom, the blue masked off ports are the exhaust valves,
exhaust, and air intake. Oil injector pump is that thing with all the
tubes off it at the bottom. Black hose between the cylinders is the
crankcase bearing oil line. Coolant line/thermostat is the big port on
the middle of the head.)

High of 12°F/-11°C tomorrow.
Oil change on the bike is complete.
Grip warmers will be nice. :D
