the takagawa shock from mini-mob... i already bougth one, but screwed it up trying to mount a 975lb per inch spring on it...then found out that takagawa says not to put that heavy a spring on it,, they suggest a max 750lb per inch spring and say anything over 850 can cause the shock to self destruct especially one like the bbr spring that is almost 2 inches longer and can ruin the threads trying to compress the spring that much...anyhow the new shock will not be for awhile yet... minimob was out of stock and had placed an order but takagawa is shut down until jan 2nd.

Tank and Tail bag, To be honest the Tail bag, I'll need to figure out a more way to secure it, But that Tank bag has now become my mini tool bag.

Oh and some Motorcycle boots.

I bought my wife a pink angel helmet from Motorcycles Unlimited.
I bought my son a TTR-110E from Mancuso.
I bought myself a used KTM from Wild West.

Wife gave me money to buy a TV for my garage/man cave. Now I just need to make room to put a recliner in there.
