Ironically enough I got that from another thread on ADV. I usually go to helicopter forums to learn about motorcycles.

Now that I'm back in California, I think the main might be a shipping problem

How big would that 105 TR blade pack up?

Bump
this thread seems to have slowed down a bit which is shame, there are some great pics on here and stories and I am sure more to come.

I can't contribute much because
a) I dont have a digital camera
b) I work in tech services / records and I am sure that pictures of log books and work packs are not as exciting as flying and stores 'n' stuff

the closest I got recently to anything active happening is this



I think this will work, bit of a noob at this
