    sorry locomoto but you were just a tourist :( Snowbirds come down after Thanksgiving or new years and stay a few months. As soon as they teach everyone how they do it up north, they hook up the trailer and leave. Disney area sees a lot of tourist and Daytona during race and bike week have the tourist. to find the snow birds, ya got to find the trailer parks, golf cart paths, retirement vilages. Forunately for me, jacksonvile has very few tourist and snow birds :)

    Best of luck with the shock. My 05 OEM is un-rebulidable. :ddog I took it out at around 25K still working. If it will do you any good, it's yours for a song and a bottle of Bushmills.:ear

    My guy could be #3. Has more tools than a TV repairman and connections with BMW from setting up husky factory race bikes. He's got my HP2 forks right now.
