    If I'm still riding when you're riding in your 90s, I'll be happy for both of us.

    as I was discussing my options for new pistons/reboreing I realized the choices up over $1000 were probably going to out last me so I decided to go with the basics...the machinist will inspect the cylinders doing a "light bore" to see how it begins to clean up and then we will decide which pistons to use and then bore to match the piston to be used...$130 for both cylinders...pistons..about $250 ea....:norton

    The tire place in the Topsham Fairground Plaza had nitrogen at one point. They tried selling me on it during my last tire change. Not sure what they would charge.

    We have to set up truck off road shocks with Nitrogen and we test pressurize (leak test) all the new AC systems with it as well. No problem to do bike shocks. Now let me see how much that is gunna cost... :evil

    I know this isn't really the place for this, but if anyone is in need of truck tires I have a great set of 4 General Grabber LT245/75R17s that came off the shop F250 (they have about 7K miles on them). $250. for inmates. Just in case they can help someone out.
