I feel your pain Jenna. Best but got a little to close to me in Macon three weeks back and MANGLED my RH Jesse Pannier. I know it's a thumper, but I deserve some pity too. This after I threw a chain coming back from a middle Georgia rally in April and locked the rear wheel up and my wife coming to rescue me got rear-ended on 75 South and MANGLED the trailer and rearranged the rear quarter panel on my CRV. It's not been a "really good year". Can I get some pity here?
Oh!!! Sorry about the pannier, Jack. Are you ok? I'm assuming that was the trailer fix when you had my welder..

Weird how no one gave Doug a hard time about the rebar. Is it because I'm missing an appendage that I got flack for the rebar repair?!

Even though I still get that in the construction biz, thought I may have avoided it here.....

Jenna, I think its like when I still lived in GA (from the 50s to the 70s) - nobody would give you s**t if they didn't love ya.

Speaking of Stay Puffed seats, did you have that on at the Fall Rally?

Hey Mark, same seat but just had it recovered. A little bit a foam renewed in the seat area, but it's the same otherwise.

So what, nobody gives a shit about RTWDoug? I do!!!!

we expect a harley to be repaired with rebar. It's just all the BMW owners here that expect repairs to be done with high quality chromoly tubing.

I have one chrome head pipe and one black one Oh, and the crash bars are kinda shiny....

I went the Marine way about the repair, since I was in Philly near the Bday party. Adapt, improvise, overcome with the rebar!!!

hahahahaha!

I caught enough ribbing from my welder friend about the shotgun barrel he told me not to use. I was lucky to find rebar in the middle of bumfuck tajikistan

I thought you did a fine repair on it. I bet it wont break again.

Not to be an asshole, but I did end up shoving her over in the garage when I knew I'd have help picking it back up. Didn't break. Also, before I put it back on the bike I wedged in between my basement steps and jumped up and down on it...no break. I'm satisfied. Glad I got the RTWDoug seal of approval!!! Seriously

Ha ha ha... You test welds the way I do. If its non-critical, I drop it on the concrete from as high as I can hold it. If its somewhat critical, I hit it with either a 4 lb or 10 lb hammer depending on how critical it is.

Remember, your speedometer never really worked accurately anyway. Use your tach for relative speed and in Atlanta if your passing everyone, slow down. If everyone is passing you, speed up.
