Lower pic is supposedly the hard part. It was a piece of cake on the tw especially compared to what we get into later.

No problem with the 122 main in the newer bikes and the 110 in the 96. Both ran really good at high altitude with a slight stumble between low to mid rpm and even ran fine at 7,000' with no surging.

That is some mighty fine riding at rarefied elevations, feared I might get a nosebleed just from looking at your pictures. Very impressive!

Somewhere on a different forum there is a ride report stating "We met two crazy fellers on TW's trying to make it up. More balls than horsepower. Don't know if they made it or not!" :D
