About Gerry
Biography:
Purchased my TW new in September of 2006. Joined Forum as mrgizmow two months after during the reign of 'Charles The Great'. Have mostly enjoyed slow off-road exploring. Modded bike extensively. The positives; getting more travel out of the suspension for a comfortable 'rough surface' ride and switching to alloy bars to minimize vibration. Improving traction by upgrading to a better front tire. Increasing fuel capacity with XT-600 tank. Installing oil-cooler and fan. Exposing idle jet and adjusting for faster warm ups. Frustrations; screwing around with main jetting and needle shimming. This netted me little and had me chasing a mid-range hiccup for years.

Likely was considered 'unique' as to my 'backyard simple' approach to modding. Became something of a 'Cheerleader' acknowledging effort and innovation with the "Missing Link" award. Sold my TW to a forum member in 2016 but continue with off-pavement adventures on a 1996 XT-225. Gerry
