Whew! Thanks AC! I was startin' to have Euro-bike flashbacks.

My bike has about 2500 miles on it, and has been washed about three times. So, I figured there was no way it was something that should be gone already (assembly stuff/preservative).

In fact, I was already diggin' thru the brand-new service manual, that my Brother gave me for Christmas. And, I have the mechanical aptitude of a potato. So, that's when shit starts gettin' real interesting, in my garage.

Thanks again...

I spent all my money on motorcycles, 4X4's, whiskey, and women...The rest I just wasted. (edited to fit/original phrase by "WIBO")
