Sign is described as "Removal of all previous restrictions". And they mean all, but to have the real fun you need to be driving a seriously modified Audi . Boy have they got the nice sound under heavy acceleration above 200k's.

I was in a rental car. Took a long time to get the rubber band tight, but when it did, it was still a pretty good clip. I found you actually needed a pretty strong stomach, particularly in the very left lane. Don't mind the high speeds, but the close proximity at speed felt a bit worrysome when we have following distance etc drummed into us here. Any thing less than 1.5m at that pace makes me feel like I am on a race track and should be doing something about it.

Glad you sorted the quote problem. They do think different over there, but let me know if you have problems again. There are some tricks, and if need be I could get a local to make a phone call.

The bottom one is pretty much identical to mine, well identical before I pulled it apart 20 odd years ago.

Who do you guys recommend to supply rims and lace them up properly without wobbles?

Got a rear, just need a front. Only need them to make it easier to set things up, but getting the engine running is the first priority.

This joke imedaitely came to mind...

The lesbians next door asked what what I would like for my birthday. I was quite surprised when they gave me a Rolex. It was very nice of them, but I think they misunderstood me when I said, I wanna watch.

Hmmm, black rims you say? 36 hole is good, Black rims would be cool on the klr or any off road bike for that matter, but may not be the look I am looking for. Hmmmm?
