Well there was no midnight ferry like I thought there was, so I had to take the 8AM ferry. That turned into a 9AM ferry. It was pouring ass rain as soon as I got off the ferry at 2:30 PM. I got all the way to the opposite coast of Cape Brenton and grabbed a hotel because I was wet to the bone. I have waterproof liners, but they don't perform the way I thought they would. O well, such is life. I'll be there tomorrow.

BTW Aunt Kathie yes the shoulder hurts. It is at about the same stage it was at when I left Vance's place on June 4th. I can ride, but it hurts often.

Not much to report other than as soon as I got off the ferry it was pissing rain. It was raining all the way untill I got a hotel. The next day I made good time to Brian's. We lost no time in beginning work on the bike. In the first 2 hours of me being there we had the rack bent back, some of the dash on, and my frame welded up. Yes, thats right I broke my frame, I broke my frame. We took the butt end off of her and rode her down to get welded. Here are some pics of the bike and the work. By the way... Have duct tape, world problems solved.











This is a picture of my break. Basically the two bones that the arrows point to are supposed to be connected.

yikes!

separated collarbone, separated frame and still smiling, Dave you're one tough hombre!

I don't have much for Honda parts, but I do have a couple of never-been-used mirrors for an XR650L that are yours if you want them... and they're in Moncton where all that re-constructive surgery is getting done.
You don't seem like a guy that spends a lot of time looking behind you but just say the word...

I know I have a headlight and mounting bracket for example. These I can see from the photos, but others may no be so obvious. I think I have a stock set of peg ends too.

+1 one the request on posting a list of parts needed?

I have an XRL that was a theft recovery bike about 85% complete (Non-Running) I could see if I have any that you need.
