A mod will be along shortly to assist. You can also use the report button.

Also, do a search of the G-Spot for these as they are pretty well covered.

Wouldn't worry about it so much. If every one just sat around and searched all day then there would be no active discussions, activity, or anything new to read.

And the forum grumps would have to leave the desk and go talk to their wives or something. Really you're keeping us all in business!

Most importantly you need LOCAL CERTIFICATION that your FARKLES have been properly installed.

That is...you'll have to leave your NEW BIKE with me for 4-6 weeks so that I can do a thorough job performance testing your 'add-ons'.

Mileage increment shouldn't exceed 1-2,000 miles.

BTW...please wait for Spring because, as you know, it's -5 right now here in Denver.

If you are on the East Coast, I always have time to verify the installation of the appropriate farkles!
