    It's always OK to pull off with me, I need to pee or lube my chain about every hour. Or maybe even take a pic LOL!

    That's the plan, since everytime I go ride, I feel guilty for neglecting the pooches. It will fit either the two "little" ones or Slider (the old red/white dog). :D

    it's a 2001 e with electric starter, big tank, FMF pipe, skid plate, etc.... it's tagged and we can get a current inspection in NC if needed.

    Right now it's lowered and the seat is carved out, but I still have the standard dog bones to get it back to stock in no time.

    This pic shows a bit, but keep in mind I parked next to a rock - so it's actually not as short as it seems :lol3

    [​IMG]

    and I hate to sell it, but I just don't get around to ride dirt a lot and I need some more money to get the hack to the shape it should be

    Thanks Cuttle.No inspection needed in SC.Paper work to title and reg in SC, without of state paper work, is a pain.I can do it tho.I've bought bikes out of state before.Can you PM me a price, so I can pass it along to my eldest son.
