    Becoming fearless isn't the point. That's impossible. It's learning how to control your fear, and how to be free from it.

    Nope, we want to see the ceramic bit under the electrode.

    Looks a little worn, maybe running a tad rich but not tragically so.
    Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon

    Take a pic pointing more or less straight down at the sparky bit, or on a slight angle off from it

    the plug looks like it sure has done some k's..... If you tried starting it a few times with the choke on the colour will be irrelevant as the choke will have darkened the plug

    It could do with the air mixture screw adjust and tweak the idle ..
