You and Mr. F should start your own motorcycle repair business. It takes you both weeks to fix anything, man that is a lot of billable hours. You could make a killing.

I just envisioned you bending over your bike naked while working on it "savoring" the experience. I hope my vision returns soon, I have to drive home.

Should ride mine next time! Uncorked makes a huge difference.

I'm still looking. There is a guy on here named Matt who has one for sale. Going to go look at it on Thursday. There are a bunch out west but expensive to get them here.

Sorry. I was out of line with that remark. I owe everybody who threw up a meal and a new shirt.

I spend about 20 minutes pouting about it to every 1 minute actually working on it. My bike is fixed now. Runs perfect. Only problem I have now is since putting on a new tire and replacing fork seal the front end is a little flighty and I'm getting some headshake. Anyone have any thoughts on that? Is anyone going to ride tonight?

She just doesn't want to hear me when she turns on the Real Housewives. Need to know if anyone else wants to ride in the next hour or so. Cocktail hour begins at six in my home unless I'm riding. Then it begins at midnight.
