Nice road report Flickit. I had the same problem with my big bike tiping over, so I bought a 300 lbs unit to get around on so I'm busy picking my heavy weight off the ground. I thought I had better tell you about steal and aluminiun with copper slip. This is not a good idea. The copper coat adds more oxidisation into the metal. Nickle coat is the better of this plan when choosing a anty seize. The heavy duty people at Finne/ Catapiler use nickle coat any time they work with steal and aluminiun. I'm sure there is info on the web regarding this. Keep up the good work, and watch out for those bottom-less holes.
