I e-mailed him again, he said as is where is. I said that's fine but you misled me by not showing the crack. He sent me another rude angry e-mail and told me I was wasting his time.

About the only thing I could do was leave negative feedback but why risk his dumb ass returning the favor. Cost me $50 to have the crack welded.
I have always laughed at the outrageous disclaimer that he uses. He tells you that all of the parts that he sells are junk so you cant complain when they turn out to be just as he said... junk. I almost pulled the trigger and bought from him before, but I wasn't willing to run the risk of getting a junk part... even though the picture looked good.
At the end of the day, he's a goon, worthy of a good old fashioned azz whippin

I thought that was a joke ad at first, then when I realized it was an actual inbred hillbilly e-bay ad, I REALLY started laughing
E-Bay lets anything roll

Ya this guy's an idiot, and will never sell anything.

I don't think an inbred hillbilly, judging by his poor use of grammar I'd say he's a rooskie

Ulyses swiped his brother ACY's (frequent poster on this thread) XRL, and has been on the epic journey of a lifetime from Oregon to Chile--his RR has been very entertaining, and I know that many of you have been following this. Ulyses and his riding buddy were on there way to see El Salvador KLR today, when one of them got mashed by a truck.

Prayers required.

PD
Everybody be careful. Seems like crashes happen in three's.

Damn!

Looks like the truck came at him and he said "Fuck you, you fuckin' truck!"

The stockers are just to narrow and cramped for my big ole feet
The stock pegs aren't big enough for may size 8.5 feet. Get some of the Chinese pegs off ebay for $20 and then weld something to them like Works Connection sells.

crash...

hey guys its Christian, aka elsalvadorklr on here,

as some of you already know Ulysses´ friend Justin has been hit...some of you know the details maybe even more than me but I have been in contact with bryce since this happened late Sunday...helping with translating, talking with the doctors stuff like that.

The details of the accident are still murky and I helped with the options one "has" down here...

being foreign and possibly "guilty" doesnt help and they were being bribed big time..so I tried to help as much as I could with that...

Hopefully they are just trying to get Justin operated and recovering...as soon as that happens I will be meeting up with them and offering whatever they need

Justins bike will be stored at my mothers place in ataco, as well as all extra gear and whatnot for however long they need to.

Im waiting for Bryces call today to see what to do next.

Im so bummed this happened...some of you know I got crashed into not 2 years ago and it was hell...
so let all pray this all gets resolved soon.

Christian

Mark Hoyer, the editor of Cycle World, has an excellent column in the this month's issue on the risks and rewards of motorcycling. These recent accidents made it all the more meaningful. Read it at home or at the newsstand. Safe and careful travels.

Then he comes flying up as 20+ over my speed and passes me partially on the center lane and half in mine. What the F?This got me heated. Caught up and words exchanged. I won't say what happened next... I'll just say my temper has not fully matured so I make mistakes once in a while.

What counts is I'm safe, and the guy didn't catch up.

Someday, I hope to equip my bike with a ray gun with both kill and stun settings (maybe one that inflicts pain too). Hopefully, I don't have to use the kill very often

In California, our digital highway signs have been saying, "Motorcyclists, start seeing them." Kinda of a nice thing!
