    For those who do not know the infamous EnduroDoctor I really dont know how to explain it. The most unique individual I have ever had the pure pleasure to share time with.

    His rebuilds are perfect, his mechanical talents are challenged by none, and his ability to adapt is even more amazing.

    Great guy and man. I wish I had the link to his rebuilds. The details tell it all.

    Doc. can you post a link to your rebuilds for all to share. They are all worth the read.:deal :deal

    [​IMG] DEET's 2008 TAT Ride comes to a close...
    <HR style="COLOR: #d1d1e1" SIZE=1><!-- / icon and title --><!-- message -->Well, the Western 2008 TAT officially came to a close for me last Wednesday.
    I flew down to Atlanta to pick up the TAT bike "weary warrior".

    Our buddy, Ole 33 (Mr. Hospitality) gathered up all the remnants of the trip from Joe as he passed through on the way to the Keys.

    I cannot say enough good stuff about Ole 33! What a great guy! And his understanding wife (who makes great brownies)!

    Thanks again for storing my truck, and bike, and parts, and shipping me my laptop, and the food, and the accomodations, and friendship... a guy just couldn't be luckier to have a friend like Ed!

    Here are some closing photos from the trip home....

    Now the rest of you TAT Raiders need to post your stuff!


    Sorry about the picture size!
