Barry,

I'm glad you're getting your bike back and it was nothing serious. Man, how sweet was it that DNA flew in a tech? (I'll leave it as an exercise for the reader to determine whether they should have to fly in a tech to find something as simple as an unshielded wire...)

We need to ride.

I may be able to squeeze one in this weekend - I've got birthday parties Sat. and Sun. You know, the toddler kind with no adult beverages. Actually, now that I think about it, the party Sat. may have adult beverages. WOOT!! Drunken pony rides!

Well.... I got good news and bad news.

Good news is, I got the bike and it appears to have been fixed.

Bad news is the sidestand dug into the hot pavement in about 10 seconds at Moto Europa... Bike fell over.

Good news is it's minor scratches and not on the painted body work.

Bad news is a Ducati clutch lever is $100.

Good news is that lever is a in stock item.

Anyone wanna' ride Sunday???

I'm back.

Barry

Sure but our track record riding together is not very stellar.

I was gonna call this weekend to find out how your bike was, but it's great to hear that everything (hopefully) is resolved. If it weren't so smokin' hot I'd go for a ride.
