Safety Wiring my Bike

I'm wanting to safety wire my bike and wondering if anyone could help me out. I've never done it before and need some insight and instruction. If anyone might have some extra time on their hands or can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated.

I can defenately provide some adult beverages

it's simple, its the initial fear of NOT knowing that kicks your . it's easy just make sure you get the correct material bits or you'll lose it breaking them everytime you try to drill something

you'll need PLENTY of drill bits....i broke about 3 good bits when safety wiring my bike.....if you use cheap drill bits, they will break almost every time.

what are you safety wiring your bike for? piece of mind? or for racing? i'd be willing to help sometime next week if you don't find someone to help you by then.

You only have a couple days to think hard about getting one of the 50 that are coming here. (US) they have a deadline this month (either 15th or 30th) that you had to have your deposit/payment made..

Thank you for offering your time. I know I work on Mon-Tue and won't be home till after 7:30pm and I have to get up really early as I'm sure you do as well. I'm not in the biggest of rushes, but hopefully something can work out.

Really? I doubt that they're only sending only 50 total bikes from production to the states, that sounds odd. That can't be all that they're sending total, it must be the first batch. Or am I off?
