Right on thanks mate. Keep an eye on that steering. I tightened it snug but stuff like that tends to loosen up with use. It was pouring that night and I didn't have my gear so I did not give it a round the block to vibrate it all into place. It is likely that you will have to snug up that lower collar, and then the top nut, after you get a few miles on it.

Bummer... 10 weeks, thats gonna hurt.

My projected buy date for a new bike has been moved again... Now looking like April/May. I blew a grand snowboarding and doing repairs on the truck this month.

I talked to Bill at Vintage Works, nothing new on the burg yet. He is still waiting on Dan from MotoXotica. I am beging to doubt, even if I still like the guy. Four month turn around is a bit longer then expected, even for an exotic.

If you guys watch dtg, don't tell me about it. I wanna rent that one. I'd be glad to join ya but I'm still at work from yesterday. Got done with a cell site in Avenal 4:30am, slept in the truck 2 hrs, then circuits down all over Fresno . Have to be back Sunday morning at 8am, so I'll catch up on sleep tonight.

Steve- heal up quick and follow doctor's orders!
