All set or so I thought - just before the end of Feb she had to cancel her trip to Vancouver and wouldn't be in town again until April. She recommended somebody else - they couldn't do it until this week because their foam cutter was broken. I asked if I bring it in Monday will it be done first thing Thursday. Yes, no problem. I dropped the seat off on Monday again asking if it would be ready for 9 am Thursday. Yes, no problem. So I show up at the shop promptly at 9am and guess what? Seat sitting on the workbench not started Crap, my whole day was planned on getting that seat at 9 so I could ride the bike and get the new tires installed at 10. Pick up handguards after that then gym at 1, home by 2:30, lunch, shower, nap, at work by 6 pm for the night shift. I explained this to the guy and he started on it right then and had it finished by 9:45! It looks perfect too He cut it down a lot so it's hard but I can touch the ground with both toes, no yamalink required New tires are installed, handguards bought and will be installed tomorrow then I'm good to go!

That's great to hear Cindy sounds like you're all set, flat footing on a bike is over rated and having full suspension travel is very good. You're doing the J Lewis class right? Along with everything else, finding better balance will make up for your tippy toes and you'll be glad you went that route, hopefully. lol
You're going to tackle that sand like it's not even there this year! ( did great last year, but that little front wheel sure made it harder for you!)
Nancy and I are looking forward to seeing/riding with you again. Safe travels South, see you soon, very soon!
