If not can you post a link to where you will be posting to most regularly.

Cheers

Best wishes for a successful ride... I'll be rooting for ya... and drinking.

There you go again. As if GSers were ever into fads.

I'll be missing the build but looking forward to the RR.

those arent tassles, thats the speedometer. at 90, they smack him in the ass, warning him to slow down before a cop smacks his ass!

Wouldn't mind seeing them, but feeling them at 60 mph would be brutal...

Nice, is that Whale Foreskin? I understand they are very popular these days.

Aristotle Onassis (Self-made gazillionaire and Jackie Kennedy's second husband) used to have a swanky yacht that he would load up with Europe's hottest socialites and sail up and down the coast of the French Riviera. On that yacht was a bar next to a big swimming pool with barstools covered in snow-white leather. The old horndog would swaddle up to a drunken honey at the bar and ask her what she thought about the seats. After she finished rubbing her hand over the leather and cooing over how soft and luxurious they were, he'd lean in closer and let her in on a little secret.

The seats were upholstered in whale foreskin.

A company bought and refurbished the yacht in the late 90s and it's now available to rent for your parties. It's a great bargain too - at about $100,000 per day.

I'm hoping there is more to the crate than this pic shows. Metal studs don't have much strength unless they have wallboard of some type to keep them in position.

I'll be anxious to see the condition the bike and crate arrive in, if this is all there is to it.
