I know why!

Either way, it's still 28 miles for me - up 59 to 610N. And there is ALWAYS traffic at 59 and 610.

It was nice meeting you guys! Hopefully we can do it again soon!

GTDrivr,

I lost you when that Nissan started cussing me and taunting me and telling me my bike was too slow.... Did you drive through the pay booth ?

Hope you made it safe to the office!

Cheers!

Thanks guys!

I was impressed with the guys at American heli arc... like I said during our conversation, when i first went to their shop, I saw all those custom choppers and I thought to myself, "oh boy, these guys are going to want one of my arms to fix my bike" but that wasn't the case. They turned out to be very good welders and very fair. If memory serves me well, I think the charged me 50 bucks to repair the frame on my old Super Magna about 12 years ago and that pretty much saved my bike. I have no affiliation with these guys, as a matter of fact, I don't even remember what their names are, I just remember them treating me (and all other customers for that matter) with respect and I will always spread the word when that's the case.

Wish you the best with your bike and hopefully we can go riding soon.

Cheers!
