650 looks great Cuttle! DOn't sweat the time it took to get it done, mine has been apart in the basement more time in the last 2 years than it has been running in good shape. I ALWAYS set to doing a task and find 5 more things that need attention. Always. These are great bikes, and once you get it going, it will be a trusted ride.
Trips to Deutchland and planning an EPIC party are legit excuses.
Thank you again for the latter.
Looking FWD to seeing more of WNC!

So, finally with a weekend off, I got around to it. Hardest part was to remember what goes where
had my hubby to secure a little "dodgy" bolt
tomorrow I ride!
