Gremlin Bells & Turquoise The turquoise is an ancient symbol of protection from falls, notably from horseback. My horses are all gone now so hopefully the tradition will transfer to my Buddy. :)

When you get you Buddy ready to ride after the long winter; check your air filter!! I knew we had a bunny family living in our garage, but who made their home here?

Did you just assume that the plug came gapped to the correct clearance or did you verify before installing? Asking because my mechanic checked the manual for the recommendation (0.6 - 0.7) before installing mine. Don't know if he had to adjust or not, wasn't watching that part.
