But it has to be rideable for RTB Ghost said so. Something about entertaining the masses. It is also a good time to replace the shift return spring in tranny.

P.S. I knew you meant LS and I have to agree, if nothing else for those who ride them third oldest still manufactured mc's.

That could be true, but I supply the labor to fix what I break. SOG just trades houses for labor.

And I thought I was aggressive :-) Nah, just trying to do it the Lonestar way which was help people out and be a friend.

Yep, I didn't think you were aggressive at all. And that's a good summary of Lonestar's method - helping people out and being a good member of the community. Most dealers look at riders as a revenue stream and many employees view them as a PITA. Lonestar was different.

Pizza and I rode some yesterday afternoon. As we were heading up back north, we hit Edwards road from 51 to 56. Apparently that was his first time to ride that road. Its a sweet piece of pavement. I hope the same jokers that ruined 51 (between 205 and 67) stay away from Edward's road.
