I'll post some more pics when she's a little more together




Nice rig. I don't see a steering damper fitted. Do you have one to put on? I would strongly suggest you get one. The car should be cambered and toed in a few degrees.

I'm in as long as it's not too late in the day-family plans later.

LOL! I used to not, but since the noticable weight loss building the garage in the heat over the summer, I've decided to keep it off and just push away from the table. Leftovers (what leftovers?) never stood a chance.

I need to start going back to the Y. Had a good routine going when I was exercising the bum (seized) shoulder after I broke my collarbone. Just need to set aside the time and DO IT!!

Could do the nickel/dime ride or the route south and east you led us on last time that was cut short with my throttle position sensor and right fuel injector issues that are now resolved.I'm open to suggestions and looking forward to riding.

I'd love to, but I have to work at the National Archery in the Schools state tournament at the new fairgrounds. We have over 500 kids who will be shooting.

What kind do you need? I have two enduro type roll chart holders. You can have one, if it will work.
