    I live on Bridgefield Dr. off of HWY 1442 in Bridge City. The pics on the water were taken at Pine St. in Beaumont on the Neches River. I have only ridden on the Neches 5 times. I usually go to Rayburn. You need to make a trip to Rayburn it is well worth it.

    Thanks. It is my favorite part of the house we built. I let her do what she wanted with the house and I designed the layout & size of the shop & carport. The shop is airconditioned too. Wrenching gets even more frustrating when sweat is dripping off your face so I decided it was worth the extra money.

    That is part of Group K's sleeper kit, I don't plan on removing it. What is the theory behind getting rid of it?

    For some reason or another it causes a significant RPM loss.(probably water loss to the pipe) This was initially verified by Spud and retested by myself. It simply is not needed. This has been verified by Pistonwash and many other ported GP owners over the years.

    Jumper occasionally runs in 88 degree water (Herring Creek) with NO overheating.
