CNRob - sorry to hear of your misfortune.
Better now then in May. Hopefully the Dr. will be able to patch you together. If not I have a guy out here on the cape that is a wiz with aluminum and Ti - not sure if he takes HMOs though...........

Dr. Redbeard is writing Rx if you need one.........

Nope, 2wd, base model, all it has is AC and this kick ass cap!


I can't believe no one made any good Cox jokes :) I have been practicing y pick up lines all day:
"Wanna ride my COX?"

Installed new water Pump today then dropped it off at "The Transmission Shop" (Coventry RI, best tranny shop period! ) having the Tranny serviced, would be picking it up tomorrow if it wasn't for 5 feet of snow we are promised, started as couple inches but now we are all gonna die under a mountain of snow as they have to 1-up the previous forecast adding couple inches each time.

Been thinking about installing a 3" receiver hitch, bumper has a provision to attach a 5000lb capacity ball but I want to use a VersaHauler for the Dirty bike, will think about it some more, last time I priced a hitch it was $150 including wire harness, ball and bar, Seems like a cheap enough upgrade so I don;t have to worry about compressing the fork to load the bike

About a foot of snow here, so far. This sucks, no riding this weekend. Where's global warming when you need it?

I just put my update in the CT/RI small bike crash-o-rama thread.. 15" here in East Haddam as of 7:50 when I checked.

I have a feeling I'll be playing around in the yard on the DRZ tomorrow.. I don't think I'll get far but I'll bet just ripping around on my driveway for 20 minutes would be a lot of fun.
