    I finally got off my fat ass and got asmugmug account (thanks Mike).

    Shadow's pics are better than mine, but so was his riding, so there you go.

    At least I brought a really big ass pistolo and let everybody get a good workout deadlifting 400 pound german iron.

    Met them at a gas station. They asked me back to the shop for a cocktail but I had to decline because I knew I was going to coast home.

    Really cool people. I took a raincheckbut I am going to try to stop in sometime.

    I promised to amil them some prints of the pics.

    The ride home was great.

    Dragged ass in Havana for awhile. Started on the 74 and decided that was for the birds and got off that and jumped on the136. Didn't get home until around 9:00.

    The piratewife completely understood.

    :thumb All fixed up with a new one. Put quick connects on the wires so I can pop them off BEFORE I go dirt riding. $69 for a set of 2 with the wiring harness, relay, and switch at Pep boys. I leave em on day and night. Helps get me noticed by all the cagers with the cell phone in one hand and the latte in the other. :kbasa

    I have some extras of those quick connects we talked about. PM and tell me what size you need and I'll send you four of them.

    My big crash last spring was on one of these (not my fault Panic http://www.carbchronicles.com/the_police_report.htm ).

    Sweet motor, but not the best handling bike in the world.

    You can tell thses guys ride purely to ride.

    Pose factor of zero.

    If you are saying she pushes corners she must be outta hand.

    it is so tight it responds when you wiggle your toes
    a little too responsive for me
    very quick too
