Just top add to Tom's comments... we both subscribe to the IBMWR list. My
finding is that this Oilheads list is less political and more friendly than
the IBMWR list. Both are good lists, though.
I guess I'm the one who is going to bait this thread: Tell us about your
R1100RT. Does it surge? That's a common thread on both lists, but it has
been dying off in recent years with the introduction of dual spark Oilheads.
