    I take it you didn't get the addresses...:D

    morning to the rest or as they said in Ireland, top of the morning to ya.:D

    I am now really suffering without the bike. I have no backup anymore. At some stage I had a Vara and a TA at the same time - did I have problems deciding which one to ride. Now I am just looking at a unfinished project...:cry I cleaned the garage yesterday (found some long lost tools) but the whole weekend the weather was perfect for riding - it was murderous on my soul.

    Remember, 4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul...

    I dont about the rest of us 800, but you and Ed could call yourselves "The International flowers-for-DR BIG 'Collectors' Club" (membership 2)....with the emphasis on 'collectors' of course :rofl

    You lost me ??? I can't eat flowers thus I have no use for it...:wink:

    I am not particularly creative with names - my son is named after me, so I hope the next child due August is a girl then I can use my wife's names. I will give it some thought - for now I need to concentrate on my system that fell over.

    Later...:D

    Does anyone know if a 1994 DR800 rotor and starter clutch will fit on a 1988 DR750.
    More questions.
    Cheers,

    How about "BIG & Single" club.

    People could think if it means the bikes or riders :rofl

    Seriously, International DRBIG Club, sounds nice! Would be nice if someone takes this club under control and could have some International DRBIG Club t-shirts etc. for sale. I´ve seen some local clubs have had DRBig clothes for sale. hmmm... Maybe we should have our own club here in Finland too.

    Molgan, Do you have a club in Sweden?

    Brain fart? Yep, I have several of them weekly.:D

    Any name will do although simple and straight says it all.

    The International DRBIG Club. Can't get much simpler than that - even I can do that in the middle of this project I'm working on.

    PS. Got bad news - the tanks are still with the sandblaster :eek1 Looks like 5 months might be my wait time too.
