Man that sucks! I bet he does listen next time. Viethorse, when these pigs get hydro locked (water/oil/fuel gets in the cylinder) you have to remove the plugs and hit the starter to clear the cylinder or you risk some pretty serious damage. Better safe than sorry.

Found this little dirt road on the way from the bay area to Fresno over the weekend. Gotta love super-smooth dirt roads Lotsa fun sliding the rear end all over the place on the big pig with the cases loaded up.

That's really sharp. Would you mind telling where you got the kit?
