Anyway, we still hit some great stuff!
Awww, man, you really know how to hurt a guy... with pics and all... Definitely next time... Hope the kidney thing gets better, hang in there.

So I hear IP had a bad fall on a bike. Broken wrist. Hope he's okay and is recovering as I type this.

Tis true. Happened yesterday at Haspin Acres in Indiana. I heard he may have been on one of the fansy orange bikes he dreams about, wonder if he is reconsidering that.

We were supposed to leave this Friday for Colorado, the trip has been cancelled.

Hope he heals up fast and can get back to riding this fall.

I did not ask him that, but knowing him I am sure there is POV available.

Found a Honda shop and they treated me like gold....and save myself about $150 that I was ready to give the HD posser shop........(There,I fell better.)
Take it up in the vendor's section and with Harley hq?

Asiana Airlines flight that crash landed at SFO. Its sad that that several teenages died but did you guys see the news anchor that was spoofed with the pilots names? She has to be incredibly stupid to have even read them but its hillarious.

I understand about an HD dealer not wanting to touch your bike. They do not have the equipment of the expertise to do the job the right way. In our litigious society there was more risk of having them work on your bike and doing something wrong than if they turned you away and you became injured. Blame lawyers and sound business practices, not brand elitist A-holes.

Love those Shinkos, they are black, round, fit and are cheap, they must be good.

Fuel pump to a shit on the WR yesterday. All loaded up at the track and ready to go. Hit the starter and the bike ran 5 seconds then died. No more noise from the pump when the key is switched on, so I assume that has to be the problem. Yeah!
