Glad to see she is getting ridden now, and is getting the royal treatment from Pyndon, wow.

I put the carbon fiber tank guards and rock guards on her. Bought them from a fellow AdvRider who was making these custom back at the end of 2004, I can't remember his ID, and I've seached. I'll keep trying to remember or see if I can find an old email or something....

Happy trails Pyndon!

Howard
yes please that would be great ..........

Hope to see some of you at the Buckaroo Desert Rally in August,

Best Regards,

glad you like the seat. Don't wait for the perrillis to wear out, mount-up the TKC's now you'll love them . Makes a whole differant scotter out of it. I most likely won't be in Elko. Look for Lucky Explorer and some of the other Flagstaff boys you cant miss him . CISCO

When you get to the point of selling your wheels I'd like first crack. I live in the Dallas area so shipping would not be an issue. I would like a second set of wheels to keep the TKC's on one set and the Scorpions on the other. Just let me know when you are ready.

Wow........

What a great group of people I am getting to know from this thread. I have had endless PM's and lots of quality replies. Pleased I could find the time to do such a report, what with trying to get the bike done, keep the report up to date and do 50hr weeks at work, it was tough, and very busy!

I hope to meet you all someday, and am going to try my hardes to get to Elko, even if it means riding there and sleeping on the side of the road!!

Need to ask the boss for some time off first though

Keep the replies coming, happy riding y'all

Found the AdvRider that made the rock guards.....BigTwin. Checked and he has posted here in the last couple of days after not posting for quite a while, he probably reads here more than he posts (kinda like me).

He was great to work with and he did a great job on the tank and rock guards. The tank guards bolt on and are on very solid, the rock guards are on via an silicon after putting clear, thick tape on tank. Pyndon, might check the rock guards to make sure they are still attached good.

I'm hoping to get back on a 950 soon, put a deposit on a SE at my dealer, the kids are getting a little bigger now, so hoping to ride again...if not I'll have a low mileage SE to sell in a year or two.....hope not ;-)

Take care,

Howard

Great thread!

I stumbeled across this thread as I usually look at the GSpot.

A lot of the things that you did apply to all types of bikes, of course some are specific to yours, but things like greaseing the Head set and such, Great thread

You are one anal mother, and I love it. Sure you shouldn't be on a BMW??

AND, I'm pissed. Cause now I need to block off 10 days to get my 950 spiffed up. Still can't get the second gear power wheelies...

Hall of Wisdom?

I'm not sure if this has been suggested yet but I would think that this thread warrants a Hall of Wisdom submission. Any seconders?

Abso-freakin'-lutely. This guy is like Edward Scissorhands, except with wrenches...or something.

I am in awe.
