my counterbalance chain was slapping the inside of the case and putting aluminum flakes into the base, thru the pump screen and lodging in the oil filter...took awhile to get a clean oil filter after fixing the doohicky....

bike shipping

I bought a bike out west from an inmate I've "known". Seemed a little ridiculous, but he gave me a deal I could not refuse so I took the leap. Then I went to Uship and after a while of nobody bidding on my shipment, I contracted with a company. Long story short is that company flaked, so now I need to go to plan B and before I repost at Uship, I was wondering if any of you have used and had a good experience with any particular shipper?

Mine get warm water with an alkali free eco friendly bio degradable shampoo. Followed by a gentle dehumidifier warming chamber with relaxing music and aromas. The GS prefers lavender and the XR enjoys mint.

The ZRX like Scotch and a good cigar. (the bitch keeps stealing my good ones)

Where "Out West"...?

I had a Hawk GT shipped from Chicago by a fellow that is based in Iowa... he goes all over Hell and back.

Great guy, Vince Nelson...

vince.nelson4@yahoo.com 319.750.7440

Drop him a line, tell him I sent you but I doubt he will remember, I know it will not get you a cut rate...

Best,
Rob

The bike is in Arizona. I'll drop Vince a line and see what he says.

Thanks!

Back in the saddle

30 days, 10 hours and 24 minutes after breaking two bones in my foot, and tearing my MCL while on the Berkshire ADV Ride, today I was able to lift my leg over the seat and sit with my feet on the pegs with out too much pain so..........................I went for a ride.

AWESOME!!!!

Life is Good
