Ebro

Long time Buell fan, owned an X-1, an S3T, and an XB12X. Currently Triumph mounted, but can't wait for the AX or just an upright standard that will do medium sport tour duty.

When they get to the repair facility, I'll PayPal some cash to help with the party. The least I could do is pony up enough for a case of brewskis. Landofwrath, pm me when they are a day or two out...
