I'm sold. I'll get some linseed oil after I spend the next 12 hours in my hammock half-drunk, popping Ibuprofen, reading a book. I could sure use more wonderful right now

That shock rebuild's gonna have to wait for me too, Solo. I've spent way too much on this already.

I'm already putting parts together for the next rebuild. I really think I can run those races with Jason and Jenna next year. I've got an aluminum r1100s tank that weighs 8 pounds(versus 19 withOUT the tankbags on the HPN) for $90 shipped. I've also got a new seat and subframe to build to shed all this crap I just created. There's no reason to haul all the touring gear at a rallye.



Which, again, would be great IF THE DAMN THING RAN

*edit: You know how long this bike's been down? So long that I felt the need to add that smiley to my 'favorite smileys' list. I think I'm going to be using it a lot in the near future
