Left for work 15 minutes late.
26mile ride.

Got to work on time.
I'm sure glad LEO wasn't out this morning.

Rode it to work today.
Took me 45 minutes to do my 25 minute commute. Too nice out to go straight to work. Too nice to be at work today. Might cut out early...

I learned to get the 990 onto the center stand without suffering a hernia or stroking out. Thanks JUNAC

Cool. Which side?

I'd really like to see you make a tank to go with it- The tanks that Mecasystems and others make for rally bikes (aluminum) are cool looking, though probably pretty rough by your standards.

It makes the most sense to me to keep it on the right side.

An aluminum left side tank is on the project list, but it's going to have to wait until fall/winter when I'm done with my bicycle work for the year.
