Thumb Trunk latches

For anyone interested I have changed the trunk latches again. Now I am happy with them. I didn't get a chance to get a picture on the last sidecar as it shipped while I was away, but I will get a picture as soon as I can. B

Ready to come home

I really wanted some outdoor pictures but as usual the darn rain won't stop. I'm sure better pictures will be taken in Florida.

it hasn't been easy to sleep
now... i'm at the MERCY of HAUL BIKES once more
i hope that the rig will be home in less than a month
had no time to go get it and ride it home
- new, unfamiliar rig
- 3,200 miles to travel
- only 9 days MAX to do it...
wasn't sure it "COULD" be done

so...
we'll ship them home and go for a nice long ride as soon as we can
thanks for taking a look and your kind comments
i appreciate it
