Sorry for leaving you guys hanging. There has been so much drama going on here I hardly know where to begin.

So what's been keeping me busy?

Here is the short list with details to follow,
- Recovered from knee surgery
- Fancy knee brace received and it works
- My daughter was attacked by a pit bull while at college. This was extremely serious and very frightening. Her injuries were severe enough to require surgery . I mention this as a warning to others who have kids or grandkids that could possibly come into contact with these dogs. Fortunately she is a tough kid, has recovered well and has now returned to classes. This was very upsetting.
- Completed rebuilding a 510cc motor with IT490 crank
- Husqvarna's (Interesting to compare approaches but the Husky's fall well short of the 465/490 in my view)
- Competed in a cross country race
- And finally, it appears my wife and I have bought a rather broken down 18 acre horse farm further out in the country. Moving to a quieter area is something we have been thinking about for a long time, but truth be told, I wanted a place where I could ride my dirt bikes. Jeeze, who knew that this YZ465 restoration project would lead to this ?
