    I like the flippy floppy thing but I've sprained my ankle walking across my bedroom, dislocated my elbow when I fell while walking the dogs and many other klutz related injuries so I probably should live my life in a bubble. I probably have no business getting on a motorcycle.


    Aerostich is open on Saturday. I called and was going to ride up tomorrow but now I think I'll work. :cry Last year we had 9 people and this year we have 4. I suppose it isn't as bad as hiking across 7 acres to use an outhouse that has corncobs instead of toilet paper.

    That's 14 alterations done at one time, smartarse. Sally got things right the first time. It also helps to know exactly what you want. :evil :deal :augie

    Rode down to Stockholm myself and had a slice of cherry pie. Saw a bunch of bonneviles there, including one with a custom seat/tailbox I recognized, but didn't see the riders. I was on the X-challenge myself, scouting out a mixed surface route. Just FYI, Co Rd AA still has ice cover on a steep section. That was interesting.

    Yep, that would be a few friends of mine. Hard to believe I know. I wasn't with them though, I took the Belle Plaine Triumph group up to the Delta Diner today, if you can believe that. It was wicked good.

    Metallic Waste and Get_Bent came along too. Good times.

    Early reviews are in on the Hyperpro Progressive fork springs and supplied 15wt oil on the front of the Fazer.

    It seems propforward did a bang-up job on the install. The bike is much more composed over harsh frost heaves, expansion joints, manhole covers, and the like. I was scrubbing in a new front tire so I took it easy on the lean angle and transitions, but it seems a touch firmer and more evenly matched to the rear. :clap

    In other news it was really nice to (finally) ride a motorcycle today. :ricky
