Ordered the Barnett Clutch kit off Fleabag, checked the screens, changed the oil, now I'm waiting on the Big Brown Truck.

It's snowing today and I have been toolin' around this website all day getting ideas in my head. So far I've ordered a new 2-into-1 exhaust system (Remus Roxx) and have sent Craig an email asking if I can still order a black ESB. It's been an expensive afternoon.

That is beautiful!

I'm so glad that I didn't sell my SM wheels with the 950

I'd take pics, but it would only be redundant and not as pretty as some of the projects on here.

Mounted, wired and aimed a couple of Rigids on a BDCW triple clamp mount.

Fixed the leaking rear master cylinder with a new piston, seals and spring.

New clutch lever. PO had bent up existing.

Attached RAM mount for my Garmin Rino 610 (Not the most ideal solution but will work for now.)

After spring trip, will tackle 2-1 and ADV Tank.

I may post picks then. She ain't pretty though. But she is mine.

Here it is. A fair amount of Vibration makes it through this way. It was shot on default settings 1280 x 960 and processed through Windows Movie maker for computer screen resolution.

Got 15 minutes to kill?

The rain had not started yet and the dirt was dry. It gets dirty.
