so far so good. got my exhaust woes squared away and Ive got her at a point where i feel comfortable with her. stayed up late last nite making adjustments and putting together a tool bag and spare parts set-up. a boyscout is always prepared. jumped on the freeway the other day and she was humming.... lets just hope things stay this way... Looks like me and kevin are going to have to re-arrange a few things as for getting out to the left coast. routes are changing, wallets are tightening, we're all on a mad dash to scrape up enough cash to make it home. gonna bring a sack load of "Ride 'em, Don't hide 'em" t-shirts to try and hock on the road... so if you want one, save yourself the $5 shipping fee and get one in person!
talked with kevo, and what he thought was going to make him have to tear the bike apart for some frame modifications, wound up being solved by a homemade chain tensioner.... whew... back on track. and to top it all off, i think we'll both have our jobs when we get home- score!
