Thumb glad you got the bike.

looks like you guys got it all figgered out, glad to hear.
I'm sure you'll be pleased with the bike, and Guy is an expert on waterpump replacements, so you're good to go. That free's me up to do all the stuff I had planned for the next 2 weeks

Wow, it takes two weeks to change a water pump on a Connie?

Satterwhite's

On a whim, we had a Mammoth Burger Eat-Off one day at our "old" company when we were on Tomlynn Street. Ordered a bunch of them and about about 6 of us participated. I managed to barely get through one (flavor wasn't all that enticing - actually disqusting), but one of the fellas got down two (2) of them.

For MOB, he was the dude that made wire harness/routing a "work of art."

naw, it takes longer to drain the coolant than to change the pump....less than 1 hour, more like 35 minutes.... 1 beer job, I could carry it in my bottle coozie.... I have a lift in my garage , and don't like rolling around on the ground anymore, less'n I have to.

it's the 6x6 section of kitchen floor I have to riip out and replace due to rot from a leaking fridge(unseen), replace that frakin fridge..., remove the bed off my 4wd pickup and r & r an electric fuel pump from the tank that has been waiting for 3 months due to work, and pull the plastic off the C14 for valve inspect/adjust (shims....x 16), install a cruise control,airfilter,oil/filter, final drive, and general major inspect-a-thon while on the lift.....

oh, and play tag.

New Horse in the stable!!


Tommy had a 'summer' shield on (10 1/2") but with fall here I thought I might as well put on shield that Guy donated to me for the cause.. Thanks again Guy!!

My Ninja finally has a friend...



Unbelieveably, both steeds fit in the shed, as long as the Connie is on the centerstand and all side cases removed from both bikes.



Thanks again to Tommy, who jumped through several hoops for me to help get this deal done, and Guy for giving her the once over and a new shield, and MOB for all the good advice and willingness to help. Thankfully it really doesn't look like its a big deal, in fact, after Tommy dropped it off, I had it sitting for over an hour on concrete to check for any drips, and none were found. So I think I'll ride her a bit and see...
