Thanks for the positive feedback on the report! I'm learning a new respect for those that take the time to write them up!

While this is my first bike, it's not my first piece of machinery. My experience has been that equipment used frequently (below it's mechanical limits) lasts a lot longer than something used only once in a while at maximum output.

It's my daily driver and I stay back off the throttle. No secrets, just what's working for me so far.

Once you get that Nighthawk running, and I have no doubt you will, just don't let it sit.
