    Engine knocking after overheat

    Thread title says it all, but here are the details re-posted from a clubhouse thread. The incident happened on a long, steep incline on I-5 north of Los Angeles called "The Grapevine".

    Planning for my first shakedown run

    I've been inspired by ERIK95LC's "Dunes" thread, and all the excellent suggestions therein, to post my own N00b thread and ask some advice.
